July 17, 2013 at 05:49 PM · Let's start a Buri religion and write a hymn book:

--What a Friend We Have in Buri

--Battle Hymn of the Shoulder Rest

--All Strings Bright and Beautiful

--Prune Him with Many Prunes

--Be Thou My Vision (Titanium)

--This Little Pinky of Mine

--Be Still My My Bow

--Take My Double-Stop and Let it Be

--All Hail the Power of Kreutzer Etudes

--Lift High the Scroll

--It is Well with My Bow

--The Old Rugged String Crossing

--Rosin of Ages

Buri's threads go to 101.

Here's a video explanation:

July 17, 2013 at 08:13 PM · That's a sign.

Maybe that's because Bill and I shall get another chance to be saved, if we repent (*and* drop our shoulder rests)...

July 17, 2013 at 08:35 PM · and get a pink tutu...

July 17, 2013 at 08:39 PM · If Buri really is divine, we will find out when this thread goes past 100 responses without being archived.

July 17, 2013 at 09:22 PM · Greetings,

actually I suspect it was just a wry one off reminder from the Divinity that some of you are failing 'religion 101,'

Cheers,

July 17, 2013 at 10:32 PM · Amazing.....the topics for discussion submitted and then approved by the administration for publication.....?????????

Go Figure It Out...!!!!

July 17, 2013 at 10:40 PM · If Buri doesn't stay buried once he is buried, you may have a point - After all, it did happen with Someone else.

And Buri, Tutu is not pink, he's black. But it's not because he's black that he fails the Bible test of being a true Christian.

July 17, 2013 at 10:42 PM · Oh dour Henry, just wishing and hoping and thinking and praying....

I have paid my serious thread dues in the past matey. I did try to squeeze in a thread once about Audrey Hepburn's hands in Breakfast at Tiffany's, it must have been either too suggestive or too off topic, but the censors blacklined it. you could check out the youtube yourself if interested.

July 17, 2013 at 10:47 PM · I hate to rain on your superstitious parade with science but this is not the first thread to get to 101. :-)

What about John's thread about "violin voices" that was mysteriously and spookily resurrected, cleansed of all "evil"?

I now await ex-communication.

July 17, 2013 at 10:48 PM · well, if Tutu's tutu is not working for him he can always come and do organic farming with me.. Tutu hands are better than oneone, especially if they have Audrey Hepburn on the end of them.

aaaaaaaah. I am washed in the blood of the party pooper

July 18, 2013 at 01:17 AM · Just don't let him kiss you!

July 18, 2013 at 02:44 AM · are you confusing me with oral Roberts?

July 18, 2013 at 02:54 AM · No, sly reference to Judas :-)

July 18, 2013 at 06:40 AM · Audrey Hepburn's hands in Breakfast at Tiffany's

Yeah! That's obvious...totally irrelevant to this site!

But....My topic for discussion was about...now wait for it....VIOLIN TECHNIQUE...How about that for a subject for discussion on this site...hey what?

Oh yeah! I know what it was, I used the S E X word to describe a descending glissando, well my girl friend thought it was S E X Y ....oooops!

July 18, 2013 at 09:15 AM · Now now Henry, this is a Life in General topic area. Its not here for nothing. I'm feeling generalised.

I see you hate to look, yet you can't stop yourself from posting.

We have 80 or so posts left. Let's talk technique. I'll start.

What would you like to say about THIS BOY'S TECHNIQUE I'll admit I'm currently a bit fanatical about this bloke's playing : } I see him as a sort of melding of Ivry Gitlis and David Oistrakh. I wonder why he is so unknown in the west. Intonation is so so good, assured. That bow is glued to the strings, his right shoulder is WD40 loose.

July 18, 2013 at 09:39 AM · oh Yeah, those descending chromatics are very S E X Y.......OOOPS

July 18, 2013 at 10:13 AM · this is a Life in General topic area

AAAAAAH SOOOOO! I am not a 'party pooper' after all!!

Forget about my thread on violin technique...It was about using these violinistic techniques in improvising, which I already know that no one here knows anything about them.....I have them all sussed out anyway..............

July 18, 2013 at 11:11 AM · [shrug] Greeeat.

Like to take it over to Improvisation.com?

July 18, 2013 at 05:14 PM · Violin technique?

You want violin technique?

Here's my sure fire violin tuning method. The important bit starts at about 0:45.

July 18, 2013 at 05:55 PM · Seraphim, I love THIS IS SPINAL TAP so much, and the "amp (?) that goes to 11 and not just 10" scene cracks me up every single time.

Speaking of cracking me up every single time [well, every single new reply], this thread is a winner. Well, of course it is. With a subject line like Sharelle's, who can resist?

What fun! Keep the humor rolling in!

July 18, 2013 at 07:10 PM · There is a perfectly simple explanation why the thread exceeded 100 posts. And it has nothing to do with religion or prunes. As a computer geek, I ponder these things.

July 18, 2013 at 07:23 PM · Should I ever run into Buri, I'd probably give him a hug, and maybe a little kiss for all he's contributed here over the years, and how many times he's made me laugh.

This would be a "guy hug" though, involving about two inches of average clearance, some vigorous but short-lived back thumping, and nothing involving bumping and grinding, or foreplay, which we guys always try to sneak in when we hug youze gals.

By the same token, the kiss would be devoid of tongueal action. Not that Buri doesn't deserve all that from someone, but he and I are probably not the best candidates to arrive at mutual satisfaction from an interaction like that. ;-)

July 18, 2013 at 08:49 PM · Since this post is all about Buri, please can I ask the question that I've wanted to know the answer to for the past 3 years, but not had the motivation to trawl through thousands of archived discussions to find out...

what's the prune thing all about pleeaase??!

July 18, 2013 at 08:50 PM · David, I trust you're not like your cousin (the more distant the better) Guy in other ways too!

Those who know do not tell...

July 18, 2013 at 10:53 PM · Greetings,

prunes are necessary because loose bowels make for a better work approach and help to dissipate the negative aurus generated by the party poopers.

What David is so correctly pointing out is that although we can speak in tongues it is better not to kiss in tongues unless one can get away with it. Granny often doesn't notice, for example, although be cautious if she does.

Cheers,

Buri

July 18, 2013 at 11:37 PM · You want violin technique?

Here's my sure fire violin tuning method.

See! What did I tell you?

Not a clue....can't believe you watch that stuff?

July 18, 2013 at 11:48 PM · But Buri didn't find the obvious answer to "A shocking cadenza. What would Mozart think? - Violinist.com", which is "Persuade Mozart that this stuff is all played somewhere in Turkey and he'd have eaten out of your hand - 101 times over".

July 19, 2013 at 12:07 AM · AND he didn't mention comics Vic Oliver and Ted Ray, scientist William Herschel, or divine John Bunyan (I'm using "divine" in another sense) under "Famous Amateur Violinists?" or point out that HRH Prince Charles's 'cello teacher was a member of the Musicians' Christian Fellowship.

July 19, 2013 at 02:17 AM · I'm sure John Waters would like to know if Buri is really Divine.

July 19, 2013 at 09:15 PM · Divine as being delightful, delicious, delectable, delirious, deluxe, de-wunderbar, de-regal, de-royal and delovely... like they say in that song.

"Prunes are good for you!" I've been giving my colleague and friends this advice since I met Buri here and it always works like charm in key moments.

July 22, 2013 at 07:49 PM · Crazy thread! :)

July 22, 2013 at 10:18 PM · The Mad Hatter: "Have I gone mad?"

Alice: "I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are."

July 24, 2013 at 04:09 PM · Prunes are dried plums; like any fruit, they hold the sun.
