I recently re-watched the move “Amadeus” and got reminded what a genius W.A. Mozart was. When I think of all the wonderful music he composed and how much he did in his short life, I feel so much admiration and respect towards him. I don´t normally play pieces belonging to the classical music world but I felt inspired and so I decided to try and arrange his Tukish March (Rondo Alla Turca) using the technique of double tapping, but on an acoustic guitar. I hope you enjoy it…there will be more. Thanks for following me.

For me, my right hand. Even though I’m right-handed, I play leftie guitar because of a badly broken ring finger on my left hand.

I learned to play that piece by Mozart on piano, and it’s challenging but rewarding once you get it down.

A lot of classical stuff translates really well to metal. Flight of the bumblebee and in the hall of the mountain king come to mind.

Definitely. I had a piano teacher when I was in my teens (he’s long since passed away, but he was the Dean of Music at Mt. Hood Community College) and he made note of that as well. Also, he got me into jazz piano.

I’ll freely admit to not knowing enough about guitar to know whether I should be impressed, very impressed, or completely blown away by Luca’s fingerwork here: but to me, the most awesome thing was that he played the whole complex piece using just about nine inches of the neck - if that much. Am I right in thinking that (to say the least) is pretty difficult to pull off correctly?

There was one of these floating disease vectors at Lake Lanier , near Gainesville GA, awhile back, in May I think. There was supposed to be another one this weekend or last. Not sure if it happened or not. They were claiming that 1000 boats showed up in a line 7 miles long. It is GA, and I’m sure there were dumb asses from neighboring states too.

He definitely optimized the location of the neck. The Mozart piece is pretty centrally limited in terms of range - there aren’t many places where it jumps an octave or anything.

I’m just blown away by the attention to detail. Those little upward trills he does are pretty easy to do on a piano, but they’re nowhere near as easy as he makes them look on guitar.

Yesterday I had my appointment with Apple on Walnut Street. I was told that the replacement parts were in different stores and that it would take a week to get them to the Walnut Street store then I could leave the cell phone there and they would fix it. I decided to get a new cell phone because it would be less of a problem for me. So now I have the iPhone SE (2020 version). So far almost everything on my old iPhone 8 matches the new phone. One thing that I am enjoying is that downloads are much faster.

I’d say it’s very difficult. Hell, it’s difficult on piano. Here’s an example, and this is pretty similar to how I used to play it.

Had the local news on this morning and they were interviewing the owner of a popular restaurant here.

Can have sit down customers, but only outside and at 50% capacity. Anyway, he was encouraging people to eat and not camp because they need the table turnover to make it work.

Masks are required.

He said he lost some long time customers because they refused to wear masks because they ” Don’t believe in Covid”.

It boggles the mind.

I got a link to YouTube, which popped up and played OK in a new tab.

And since we seem to have an Amateur Music Critics thread going, I will proffer the opinion that I really liked Luca Stricagnoli’s version a lot better. I know Mozart’s “Turkish March” should have a fairly lively tempo, but Lang Lang played it like he would get fined for running too long (which made the piece sound, IMO, like the soundtrack off a silent-movie car chase or something). IS there a “standard” tempo for this song, or is it up to the performer?

Yeah, he did play it fast - I usually played it slower, much like the guitar cover in my #5. Of course, it can - and sometimes does - vary according to the performer. But generally, it’s a fairly brisk piece.

That reminds me. A whole load of UK beat boom groups in the 1960s would do a cover version of Greig’s In the Hall of the Mountain King from his Peer Gynt suite. Pretty much every big name UK band of that time attempted it in their live act, even if they didn’t release it on record. Here’s The Who’s take:

The Who play Hall of the Mountain King from Peer Gynt

Even as late as 1973, ELO ended their album On the Third Day with their take on this piece. (Which also begins with a quotation from “Morning” from the same Peer Gynt suite.)

What’s going to end up happening is a vaccine may not cause herd immunity because these same fools are also anti vax or will be by the time a vaccine becomes widely available. The anti vaxxers and anti mask people tend to travel in overlapping circles, so I can see that happening. “I don’t believe in a disease” has to be one of the more idiotic things I have ever heard of. It’s on par with “I don’t believe in birds being able to fly”, or “I don’t believe in electricity”.

I make sure, that anyplace I go (which these days is limited to either Kroger or taking Cleo to the vet) to thank the people working there. I’ve even let the management know that I appreciate all these workers trying to work and do their best in less than optimal circumstances.

I always ask how the Walgreens ladies are doing and thank them. They’re good folks. That’s pretty much the main place I go other than walking the dog twice a day. We’ve had the mask mandate (even while exercising) for awhile now, and almost no one is following it in the parks.

I went into the liquor store yesterday, and the stupid clerk wasn’t wearing a mask. Afraid that place is off my list now. SMDH

And I agree, not believing in a disease is appallingly stupid. And not wearing a mask because FREEDuMS blows my damn mind. Selfish spoiled assholes.

Just like clockwork, Rafael Cruz makes an asshole of himself again…

‘Good luck eating out’: Ted Cruz faces backlash after suggesting restaurant servers are grifters

“I’ve spoken to small business owners all over the state of Texas who are trying to reopen,” the senator said, “and they are calling their waiters and waitresses, they are calling their bus boys and they won’t come back.”

Sure you did you fucking lying TexAssHole!

Cruz added: “And of course they won’t come back because the federal government is paying them in some instances twice as much money to stay home.”

Meanwhile this third rate asskisser won’t lift a finger to help unemployed people get their benefits restored while he continues to get his salary and lots of bribes from the Koch Brothers.

I am all about the mask wearing, but outdoors in a park? Not sure about your state, but most outdoor mandates specify if it is not possible to socially distance. Maybe your park is a lot more crowded than the ones I go to, but I can generally take my dog for a walk and never come within 30 feet of another human being.

on just before he got to the checkouts.

I wear gloves when pumping gas, but generally not in Walgreens. They have a gallon of hand sanitizer at all the registers.

If I went inside the grocery store for a big buy, or went to Costco, I would definitely wear gloves.

As of right now we get grocery store curbside pick up. I’m still not comfortable spending any significant amount of time in a grocery store, (or inside any place but our home) because basically no one social distances. The masking is pretty good, but customers and workers are woefully bad about staying 6 feet away.

re: #51 danarchy

I live near a couple of parks, one a city owned and one an NPS property. They are always so busy there often are no parking places. The NPS one has a main parking lot and two overflow lots and there are still never any parking places. I took Cleo there a few weeks back, before it got hotter than Satan’s asscrack here, and no one was even bothering with social distancing. A couple of people had their dogs running off leash too. I turned around and went home. This park is ALWAYS crowded, even during the week, pre COVID, but it’s way worse now. I wouldn’t go there without a mask, the city owned park is much smaller and the same thing is happening there. It’s probably safer to just go for a walk around the neighborhood. I live around a lot of assholes.

BUT! yesterday when I was leaving Kroger, a can of soup fell out of the cart and began rolling into the parking lot. I went to get it and a very nice gentleman said”Wait! Ma’am, let me get that for you,”and he had to go out of his way to do it. So, sometimes kindness rears its head. He even put his mask back on to put the can back into my cart.

Republicans in disarray! Jared won’t let the RNC give money to House races. WaPo

Senior House Republicans are pleading with the deep-pocketed Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign to provide financial help as Democrats vastly outraise the GOP, but top campaign officials are so far declining to commit.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has been prodding the RNC to write a check to the National Republican Congressional Committee — a request he has made multiple times. McCarthy specifically has asked Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, to make a financial commitment to the House GOP, according to several officials familiar with the discussions, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to freely describe private conversations.

But Kushner, who oversees such decisions and has a greater say than RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, has refused thus far, the officials say. While the Trump campaign and the RNC have brought in record amounts of money, some Trump officials see donating to the House as a wasteful investment as the GOP’s chances of reclaiming the majority sharply deteriorate. …

Thoughts and prayers, man. Thoughts and prayers.

I was lucky enough to see Rockpile, not once but twice. Once at the old Ritz in NYC, and once at Belmont Park on LI, on a bill with Blondie. Such a great band.

At the Belmont show, we spent the afternoon in the clubhouse betting on the ponies while Nick Lowe hit on my then-girlfriend. Good times…

I think the gloves thing is because they’re trying to cut down on the employees having to wipe stuff down every eight seconds.

That said, I think that’s both a little nuts, and utterly in Apple’s wheelhouse to dump a problem on their customers when they should be dealing with it. I’m also surprised to hear this, because I listen to a Mac-centric podcast every week and this hasn’t come up at all.

I guess you’re talking about the Walnut St. store? I’m half tempted to Tweet one of the hosts of the aforementioned podcast and see if this is a corporate thing, or just the Philly store.

I guess you’re talking about the Walnut St. store? I’m half tempted to Tweet one of the hosts of the aforementioned podcast and see if this is a corporate thing, or just the Philly store.

Here is the problem with gloves, unless you watch a customer put on a new pair when they walk into the store, how do you know what they have been touching with those gloves? How does this mitigate what they have to wipe down?

I only got to see them once, at the old DC Capitol Center when they opened for Elvis Costello (jaysus what a show). Have always been a fan of Edmunds and Lowe and the collaboration they put together for the Rockpile albums (even though they were mostly made under one of the leads or the other due to the record company constraints), still hard to find two better pieces of listening vinyl than Edmunds’ Repeat When Necessary and Lowe’s Labour of Lust. Then again, I am fully cognizant of all internet traditions and understand that what I like is not what everyone else might like :-)

He said he lost some long time customers because they refused to wear masks because they ” Don’t believe in Covid”.

Now he knows which long time customers wouldn’t do even the easiest thing to help his business survive during the pandemic. I hope he treats them accordingly when they try to be his best buddies again if this ever ends.

I’m trying not to get happy, but OMG, I really hope these are signs that both Trump and the GOP are going to get crushed in November.

The orbit of grifters around Trump probably see the writing on the wall (i.e., Trump’s reelection chances are on a downward trajectory) and want to make sure they hoover up all the campaign money themselves.

Speaking of food spitting: apparently up in North Jersey, a kid at Starbucks got fired for spitting in some cops’ coffee. It appears to have actually happened, as it’s appearing on reputable news sites as well as shit holes like the Blaze.

I’m resisting the urge to make comments on FB pages along the lines of “Wow, that”s just as bad as a bunch of Minneapolis cops strangling a guy to death on camera”, but my resolve is weakening. Problem is trying to get the point across that I don’t condone what the kid did vs cops do worse shit every day. Not sure I can pull that off right now.

I have seen hand sanitizer used with gloves on. That’s asking a lot out of a pair of gloves. It’s time for a new pair, with hand sanitizer between pairs, if washing and drying is not possible.

Guilty!
Wearing gloves from the customer counter accepting incoming waxes to cast and then going back in the shop for setup calls for a quick disinfecting in between. IF, and it’s bigger if than months ago, the person to surface to person contagion is a big thing or a little thing. I usually spray 90% alcohol rather than a gel.

You know who else thought slavery was a necessary evil? Slave owners. That’s how a lot of them felt after the Revolution. In response to the rise of the radical abolitionist movement in the late 1820s, they pivoted to making the argument that they were benevolent masters and slaves were better off than industrial workers in the north. Kind masters, happy slaves.

I look forward to Tom’s journey through slavery apologist rationales. //

Well, that section may not have been finished in its construction. Looking at the people standing around in vests, it seems they knew they had to be there. These kind of fences need bracing, and perhaps they just hadn’t been installed.

Did he ever really even play baseball? Or was that just more bullshit and part of him buying his way into college with Daddy’s help? Like Lori Laughlin’s kid being on the rowing team.

Here’s an article from May 2020.

Was Donald Trump Good at Baseball? (goes to Slate)

Nichols’ statement sounds like me on Iraq in 2004 and McCain/Palin in 2008. It took Obama’s huge victory and about 4 months of complete online political detoxification to break the fever and return me to my pre-9/11 self.

we’ve seen photos of him practicing; he wouldn’t be able to throw a good pitch. (although apparently he played on his high school team)

There’s never been a better player on his high school team before or since and he totally could have gone pro.

re: #157 Teddy’s Person

IIRC, He bragged that he was good enough to “go pro” which prompted a coach or two to publicly say, “yeah, no.”

And then there’s this little ditty:

Trump, who played first base, wrote that “being a pro was in the equation” until he attended a tryout with “another young kid named Willie McCovey…”

As for Willie McCovey, he was eight years older than Trump. When Trump was a senior in high school, McCovey was in his fifth year in the major leagues and already an All-Star.

Yeah, he played baseball, but most of his “fame” was made up by either him or a coach who was his buddy, Dobias, who was never the varsity baseball coach during Trump’s time at the academy.

People, bruh.

A mountain rescue team has said its members “didn’t need to think twice” when they were called to help a 121lb (55kg) St Bernard dog that had collapsed while descending England’s highest peak.

Sixteen volunteers from Wasdale mountain rescue team spent nearly five hours rescuing Daisy from Scafell Pike after receiving a call from Cumbria police.

The team said the dog was displaying signs of pain in her rear legs and was refusing to move as she came down from the summit of the mountain with her owners on Friday evening.

St Bernard dogs were originally bred to help with rescues in the Alps in Italy and Switzerland. The spokesman said: “She apparently feels a bit guilty and slightly embarrassed about letting down the image of her cousins bouncing across the Alpine snows with barrels of brandy around their necks.” Source: The Guardian

(as if the lame brained target audience could not remember that Roy Moore was running, and it was an off year election because Jefferson Beauregard Secessions III resigned to become Attorney General). Oh the primary ads here, Sessions was kissing Trump’s ass all the way, even though Trump endorsed his opponent because of pettiness.

He made so much out of rebuilding 90+ miles of wall - and 3 miles of new wall where no border structure actually existed, that it turns out that it didn’t even last first contact with severe weather.

Graham’s spewing the same crap about Jaime Harrison’s fundraising.

Graham’s communications director T.W. Arrighi told Newsweek in a statement that Harrison “is being rewarded by Hollywood celebrities and Democratic party bosses for his support of late-term abortion, the Green New Deal, free health care for illegals, and more.

There’s never been a better player on his high school team before or since and he totally could have gone pro.

The one guy who claimed that he was being scouted is now dead. Everyone else doesn’t recall whether anyone ever scouted Trump. The known box scores from those games shows that he never even crossed the Mendoza line against sub-par competition. There’s no way anyone would scout a dumbass like that.

Why?

Because they’re not going to waste their time scouting someone who can’t hit in a region that isn’t known for baseball talent. We also know that there’s no way anyone was scouting Trump because local news from that era wasn’t highlighting his games or making it known that he was a phenom. He wasn’t.

He was a dumbass bulkshitter then. He still is today.

If a scout was hoping to jump to the top of the waiting list for a 3-bedroom with balcony in one of dad’s buildings, he might very well pretend to be considering the kid.
