A Small Shock

It's getting close to Christmas, and happily I find myself involved in a performance at my place of worship. The music came yesterday and its kind of a schizo presentation: the first half is praise band oriented with popular XMas tunes and the second half is more orchestral with older carols and som...

Oh, there were some forum denizens there alright, the chattanoogan diehards and this particular forum troll. And Venividi. Just the ones off the top of my head.

But if you mean the Heart and Soul of the forum were not represented at Tivoli, then I agree.

Hmmm, weighty stuff.

I assume the DVD contains the evening performance, not the matinee. Be cool to see the GH being enjoyed by a few more rok'n bodies....

Oh, sorry about that. Feel like I've just woken up, and there's no sun...shine.

It's no use, actually, with a young'un in college (same one as Bethany, assuming she's hasn't graduated yet) I can't handle those ticket prices.

Why, oh, why?

You need to read the essay "Teach yourself to program in 10 years" by Peter Norvig as an antedote ;^) Currently listed #4 of the top dozen links at norvig.com.

I'm partial to "Ancient Noels" from Maggie's Music. Some celtic, some medieval, all instrumental. Our music director is very eclectic and sometimes mines pretty deep for music. After singing some very old, beautiful carols the other day I thought, wouldn't it be sweet if GH did an album of nothing b...

Re: Culture of Ascent - Suzie

I've replayed old GH stuff to try and work out whether Suzie has always kicked so much derriere, and I don't hear the same stuff going on in Run Lisette. So, I don't know what good thing has happened, but the singing on SSoS is absolutely classy - pure, rich, with conviction. We had a similar react...

Well, well, well.

If it's as good as all that, let's round up some folks and go see it!

And if not, Beowulf: The Musical still sounds good to me. 8)

Beowulf

Steve's tossaway line about "Beowulf: The Musical" in the PE threads reminded me that we're about to be visited by a theatrical version of one of the greatest of Ye Olde English Epics. Or was it Olde Geatish? It's bound to be utter crap. Or am I just being cynical? I'm interested in how far the live...

LMPC is a fine choice and setting for a wedding. So like a keep, so vast. You keep expecting the knights to reign up into the courtyard. I met David Beckman, Rachel's new father-in-law, in August. He's teaching Latin at CCS so he is my wife's colleague in the Foreign Language department. A very inte...

Is there a "traditional" GH sound? I may need more back catalog. But I agree about the revitalization part. I put it as "new compositional tools in the box". There is nothing more "traditional GH" - whatever that is - than when the vocal enters following the power trio/crazed bat intro to "Ember". E...
