Messiah, beginning to end over and over and over... I shall not get the "All We Like Cheese" out of my head... see "smile" thread 3 for more info. :P

I have also broken into a secret of sound men everywhere... it is "what the bloody mid-range is and how can I bring it to the forefront of a recording to learn a bloody minded song in English, written in an autistic way (but, thanks, but, thanks, but thanks, but thanks. Thanks be to God) and that is how I mean that) I truly think that Latin is much cooler and I am beginning to suspect Handel of secretly tripping on some meth while writing the blessed thing.

There, having said that, I shall attempt to get into the holiday mode, and enjoy buying a white on white 'fitted' shirt, and black tie for the event.

My ankle is still acting up, so a Cast may be on the way. Wheeeee!! whoops, mommy can I get off now?

Dunno if the spelling is bad.
Looks like German for "Mirror in mirror", in which case the spelling would be correct :D.

Dream Theater - Hollow Years (Live at Budokan*)

This is the important bit since I think the album version is ok, but not more, whereas this live version is absolutely fabulous. The guitar solo is genius.

I love that piece! I have another piece by Arvo Pärt that is quite beautiful. It's called Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten. :D






By the way, you got the German right but spelled apologies wrong. :wink:

I meant I'd found it on you-tube after you'd mentioned it, sorry I'm sleepy and making sense is toooo difficult :(

Listening to a CD called 'The Goat Rodeo Sessions' - it's Yo-Yo Ma and friends playing a quartet of music written by them for cello, bass, fiddle and mandolin. Really good. :D

Sounds like it is. :D

Now listening to
RMB - Spring
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMB_(band) if you don't know RMB.
And probably some more RMB before going back to some metal.
