Rinucio is a hottie

I just got back from visiting Omniscient Mussel. If you've got the computing power, (I need the library's )go there and watch the Youtube clip. "Rinucio is a hottie with a smokin' body"

    What a dummy am I. I did finally figure out you wanted to click on the Mussel. I got in but still no YouTube. But some data;

    Soprano Inna Dukach returns to New York City Opera this fall singing Mimi in La Bohème. Upcoming in the 2007-2008 season, Ms. Dukach will perform Donna Anna in Don Giovanni with Orlando Opera and with Opera Carolina, Strauss' Vier Letzte Lieder with Theater Pfortzheim in Germany and a concert of Gluck arias with Opera de Oviedo in Spain.

    Engagements during the 2006-07 season included a debut with New York City Opera debut singing Mimi in La Bohème, a debut with San Diego Opera as Xenia in Boris Godunov, La Bohème with Lake George Opera, Wall to Wall Opera with New York City Opera at Symphony space (broadcast on WQXR), Songs of Yiddish Poetry with the Brooklyn Philharmonic and an all Chopin recital with Oxana Yablonskaya and The Chopin Society of New York at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall

    The GrooveBarbers are featured in national TV commercials as The Astelins, the deliriously suave vocal group that offers Astelin nasal spray to seasonal allergy sufferers. An a cappella supergroup? Sounds paradoxical, absurd, perhaps even dangerous; indeed, The GrooveBarbers is all these things. Each member of this all-vocal powerhouse quartet is a bona fide star in his own right: Sean Altman, Charlie Evett and Steve Keyes are former members of the pioneering contemporary a cappella group Rockapella, and Kevin Weist is a renowned bald vocal guru. Collectively they have established themselves as the "go to" vocal group for rock, doo-wop, jazz and even (no way!) barbershop!

    Miss Mussel Is
    a freelance writer and photographer. At the moment, she mostly ghost writes self-help books and creates content for various web sites. While Miss Mussel enjoys telling people how to get rich in real estate or why Costa Rica is the best place for your next holiday, she much prefers to discuss music and culture. Mostly art music, but also jazz with bits of folk, rock ‘n’ roll and hair metal thrown in just for fun. No one is immune to the beautiful inanity of a mullet in full bloom.

    Miss Mussel has been heavily influenced by Emily Post and Donald Tovey and hopes to continue in the tradition of strong but subtle commentary overlaid by razor sharp wit.

    In addition to being an avid cricket supporter, a rather good cook and an enthusiastic but less-than-exceptional tap dancer, Miss Mussel is the rarest of birds: a carilloneuse with well developed social skills.

    The only thing that pisses me off is that she has links to THINK DENK, and SOHO THE DOG, but not FEEL FREE TO LAUGH.

    It just goes to illustrate my less than first rate musical status.

    Actually the lack of link speaks more to Miss Mussel's total preoccupation with work and general forgetfulness. By the time the OM blog is launched officially, all should be sorted.

    How wonderful to see the response from Miss Mussel her fine self. Perhaps FFTL will begin to find its rightful place at the table of sterling Blogsites, where it belongs of course.

    Of course, as well, I am sad to see that I mentioned something Miss Mussel had not done "pissed" me off. Such misuse of the vernacular is probably a tiny bit offensive. If so, I will endeavor to be kinder and more responsive to other bloggers and their respective sites.

    Thanks for your interest, and keen insights, Miss M.
