...because even a good friend wouldn't want to be within half a mile of an out-of-practice violinist.

Czech it out!

The local antique stores are, for the most part, junk stores. They sell old things that nobody really wants (as opposed to slightly-used things that rich people want). I found this piece of junk next to a half-size member of its kin, chillin' and generally being useless -- the latter because it was missing two of its strings. A few days at the local music shop and it was back in working order.

Though, I don't remember holding a bow hurting this much, back in elementary. It's like someone punched me in the hand. Ow.

Maybe investing in some lessons wouldn't be a bad idea. If anything, it would force me to play. The bow thing will go away with practice and time. And I could potentially mooch free tuning off of the instructor. Being pretty much tone deaf sucks.

Just found some old MIDI files I'd tucked away in a ZIP file for storage.

Best. Music. Ever. :D

So, the Supernatural mainpage has been offering the version of "O! Death" from the new season trailer.

...I have it on repeat.

I'd say "Damn you!" but it's pretty clear that's moot.

My Les Miserables record has a small imperfection that makes it skip one single word right in the middle of 'Who Am I?'

I have no idea how it got there. It was still in the wrapper when I bought it.

I wonder if the company that printed it even still exists.

My mindless fangirling, let me show it to you.

I found a Dracula music vid on YouTube that uses the Concept Album version of "The Riddle". The video itself does absolutely nothing for me. I don't like that version of Dracula. But the song is...

Kinda neat.

I mean, there's no Percy, just Chauvelin and Marguerite tearing into one another, and that's really interesting. The lyrics are different, and the break up of lines is a little poor -- most notably the "Can I run to you..." bit, which was all given to Chauvelin. The way he sings this here makes me suppose he was less of a total bastard in the original draft, and more of simply a slightly-less-moral romantic rival. Still, having a little different pacing and different background is a neat curiosity, if anything, especially since I'd had no intention of ever buying the concept album. This is making me wonder about the rest of it.

It's most definetly a concept version of the song, but I would not have knocked it if this had managed to become a final version. If you'd never heard the final, this would probably rock most awesomely.

So here--

Concept (with added Dracula WTFery):

Final Broadway Version (with clips from the '82 film):

Compare, folks.

I found this on YouTube:

A nice video of Patrick Stewart from "Playing Shakespeare", wherein he discusses timing and line in a play. Very neat.

And a screencap from JBE's 'They're Everywhere' that I thought was funny. )


Stewart on Sesame Street. Oh god. XD

So Tim Russ can sing.

I am intrigued.
