We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I'm sure she's great and everything, but who can watch her when Fred Astaire is on the screen? He's perfect in every way, even walking around casually. Well, maybe that's just the heterosexual in me talking. Watching Fred Astaire makes me giddy with happiness.
Anyhoo, happy/giddy -wise, i've been ga ga over Glenn Gould the last few months --He's tops, like Astaire --especially his so-called ''Liszt transcripts'' --the scoring for piano that Liszty did for the big orchestral works --of Beethoven, famously.
Youtube is almost worth sharing a planet with Obama --jeez, glad i caught that tyupo --i typed ''shattering'' instead of ''sharing''. Maybe i won't get arrested today.
Anyhoo, youtube, try Beethoven 6th symphony, Movement 2 (it's on two different URLs, part 1 and 2, sez the Capitain). The Liszt transcripts, by Glenn Gould.
Good headphones, ''wave'' all the way up and ''Volume'' at halfway in the computer volume controls --
