Well, congratulations on completing some of your newcompositions! When I went toFacebook or MySpace on yourlink I could not play themp3's. I guess I have toinstall some new kind ofplayer. This office Dell isso monitored and constipatedwith Big Brother nuances, Ijust miss out on a lot ofvidoes and mp3's. One daysoon that will not be thecase. Good luck on findinga live musician or two toplay your clarinet pieceat SCC. Let's assume that willwork out for you.It be Friday, for sure, andeven though I have a medicaltreatment today, I am smilingas the "shortened" week comesto a pathetic close. I stillhave 8 huge weeks of indenturedservitude ahead of me, andmy mind and spirit are goingthough changes like a 4 yearold goes through new clothesin a day. Thanks to LynneRees, over at Applehouse,I have discovered poetJack Gilbert, and throughhis Bio, his poet wife,Linda Gregg, for my esotericposting of poetics way overthere on FFTR. And of course,I am still enjoying the poetryand photography of Yi-Ching Lin,pumping the good stuff out ofNYC. She is a bit overwhelmedby my initial enhusiasm; canyou imagine such a thing?Sorry to hear that you did notseem to be in rapture over thenew PBS version of Hamlet.I taped it, but have not viewedit yet; it's over three hourslong, enit?
You don't have to go to face or space, you can use the little jukebox right here on FFTL.Polonious was well done.The thing reminded me of a B-17, tail shot off, and one motor out but still a great play.
Yes, it is good to be at home thisfine MONDAY am, cuz your littlejukebox sidebar shows up with actualstuff in it, and I was able to listento all your newest compositions.I especially liked the Bass Concerto,but you already know I am predisposedto liking strings. Pretty accomplishedpieces, to be sure. It would be triplecool to hear them in person.After deleting hundreds of my olderpostings over on FFTR, my son-in-law,Joel came over yesterday, and wedid confirm that I had used up 90%of the free blogger 1024MB, whichseems to be equal to 1GB. I was ableto sign up for 20GB of space for theannual fee of $5.00. How wonderful,and yet how sad as I waded into myarchives with a blunt and ignorantsythe of anger and frustration, andnow it will take several months ofmy soon to be free time to recapitulatethose postings lost; but hey, nowall is well in my land of creativity,and until I encounter the next glitch,and require the next tutorial, thingsare good over on FFTR. I watched thePBS Great Performances version ofH A M L E T , and I did learn to appreciateDavid Tennant even more. He is feyas a fruit cake, but he is a hell of fineactor. Several of the 7 famous soliloquiescame to life very vividly. The modern dressversion, interspersed with period dress,CCTV, cell phones, and hand guns, wasan odd poiporiri of mixed dimensionsthat often jarred more than it jelled.I did like all the mirrors on set, and itdid work symbolically and specifically.The "new" DR. WHO will take some gettingused to, but I am now taping it as well.Patrick Stewart did his Shakespearean well, but much of what he does hasless depth and girth than I would havehoped for. I liked the actress who playedGertrude; the chamber scene was nearlyOedipal. Tennant being barefooted somuch was odd, but kind of effective.He does use his body well, and it doesshow his theatre training. They spenta week rehearsing the fencing duelingscene at the end, and it seemed to gowell. I still prefer the Zefferelli version of HAMLET. Mel Gibson was stunning,and was excellently supported byAlan Bates, Glenn Close, Paul Scofield,and others. Rent it, download it, orborrow it from me, but watch it.I really liked your description ofthe PBS new version: "the thing remindedme of a B-17, tail shot off, one motorout--but still a great play."Well said, sir. I looked at some newer vehicles onSaturday, but found it difficult todrive them, with my lame left foot.I use an extended wider brake peddleon my pick up, so that I can useboth feet while driving, and mostnewer cars have the brake rightof center, nearer the gas, becausefolks with healthy feet, legs, andankles. Joel and I loaded up 7 yearsworth of old TV's, computers, andmicrowaves yesterday, and tookthem to Goodwill. They recycle thatelectronic stuff for free now.
Hallo, Lane! I'd love to hear your two new works (Congratulations!!!) when I get to Seattle at the end of June!!!Tschüß, AnonomannP.S. No "rergards from the LL", as she is still in Cornwall (England), where she went whi´le I was in Türkeye.
