When you need to slap around a teddy bear visit here.
Why friends don’t let friends buy a chromatic tuner. You’ve been warned.
When you need a maintenance-free pet. ‘Cuz it’s so cute.
When you’re seeking a transformative, hallucinogenic, spiritual, near-death experience and happen to be in Gabon read this first.
When you crave earthshaking news go here.
When your two favorite films of all times are Brokeback Mountain and Back to the Future don't miss this.
When you can’t afford the plane ticket (and yes, you really do need to download and check this uber-cool site out) fly here.
When you need to keep on top of all the goings-on in the violin world. Um, you're here.
Also, it is fun to do the electronic computer tours of nifty places, but sometimes, there is nothing better then having a plane ticket!
Also, nice review of "Savior: A Novel". Agreed it is a special read.
Thanks for the comments on the Savior review. Really an extraordinary book, particularly for violin people. The evocative detail had me marking every third page for future reference. The words were almost musical. Fitting, that, yes? : ) And given the dark nature of the book's subject, it sure helped me as a reader to be able to slip into the lyricism of the descriptions.
Okay. I'll shut up and just go click them all again.
Off I go to click away the blues.
Maybe I should read the "Chromatic Tuner" essay while toppling the teddy bears at the same time (cut and pasting to a Word document is required for this feat). Maximum entertainment.
Has anyone tried toppling the teddy bears? You've got to - it's just hysterical. Mesmerizing. Just swipe your mouse over the teddy bear pyramid. Almost as addictive as a chromatic tuner. : )
>At first it was only once or twice a practice session. After confirming my open strings, I’d turn it off and only use it for a quick nip to check the B and C notes that always dogged me. Then a little more. And a little more. I didn’t tell my teacher how much I was using it, of course. I hadn’t intended to mention it at all, but then, when she commented on my improvement on the A string, I let it slip. My teacher’s eyes widened, as if I’d just admitted to keeping a loaded firearm in my violin case.
