I personally liked the people walking around with the turkey legs


The only better place to go watch interesting people is the Star Trek bar at the Vegas Hilton on a Friday night. Watching people dress up and go to the bar was a sight. That's entertainment!

I probably would have went if there was a bar with a good view.

Oh, there are two in the Hyatt - one on the lobby floor that is in full view of the masses at night and one that is on the lower floor with the smoking deck/walkway to the Marriott which is filled with just as many masses.

Anyone ever listen to Planet P Project: Pink World? Great album and a great story to boot.
Everyone here has such intelligent, wonderful signatures, and all I could come up with is this??

Nick Drake if you aren't afraid of getting depressed (Pink Moon). . David Sylvian and REM are on my playlists frequently.

Great Scott! I thought I'd be the odd man out, mentioning Bruckner, but others have already! I feel so vindicated! I have all the symphonies by Jochum; 5,8,9 by Furtwangler; Thielemann's new 5th; a Horenstein 5th; almost all of them by Tintner on Naxos; Klemperer's #6. But I digress . . .

I need to experience #9 in green.

Listening to Bach's solo violin works with Grumiaux, and I think it'd make pretty nice absinthe music.

Hmmmm . . . Bach, yes. I have the sonatas and partitas, on Phillips, I think. I also have the scores. I've been meaning to study them for ages.

They're great pieces to study. Especially the fugues. It's amazing how he can get a 4 voice fugue going on an instrument that can barely play four notes at once. The fugue from the C major sonata is also the longest fugue he ever wrote.

I'm working on the G minor sonata now (on viola, transposed to C minor), but I'm also pretty familiar with the others. If you have any questions about them feel free to PM me.

After all the pleasant conversation and overstuffing of myself, I've resorted to slamming cheap absinthe and playing loud music.

Incubus and François Guy. It's that kind of night.

I was inspired by the others I think. It's still the same corset, but only with the peusdo victorian outfit I enjoy walking in (complete with umbrella cane)

Hey pianoben. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that maybe you're a musician?

Edit: never mind. Missed the last line.

Why don't you mosey over to the newbie intro forum and introduce yourself?
