haha she lost

Hi all,

Well first I want to apologize for not blogging I’ve been kinda busy.  Well some of you out there probably play “The Game”, which you just lost (but so did I to think of the post), and if you don’t start.  It’s really fun and there’s only 3 rules

  1. Everyone in the world is playing The Game. (Sometimes narrowed to: “Everybody in the world who knows about The Game is playing The Game”, or, “You are always playing The Game.”) You cannot not play The Game; it does not require consent to play and you can never stop playing.
  2. Whenever one thinks about The Game, one loses.
  3. Losses must be announced to at least one person (either by using a statement such as “I Lost The Game” or by alternative means).

that’s the game you now must play, it’s impossible not to.

Instrument segregation

Hi all,

Well, I play the cello and am in an orchestra. During practice today I was wondering why it seems the violins always get the melody, and us Violas, and Cellos always get stuck on backup, and don’t even get me started on the poor basses. Well I originally thought it was just our conductor the last 3 years, because she was a violin( well she played all the instruments, but violin was her main), but our new conductor is a cello like me, and we’re still in the background.

Cello, 'A voz do amor e da dor e da paixão...'...

So what I want to know is whose idea was it to make the violins the main instrument, was it back in the time of Bach and Beethoven, or was it just in modern times, and how did it get that way, was there a reason, or did it just work out that way, or was it some sort of prejudice, I don’t know, but what I do know is that us cellos, and violas, and basses are all condemned to a life of playing backup for those big wig violins.

Hi all,
Well, I’m posting by email, because the stupid wordpress blackberry app won’t load, and the wordpress mobile site sucks. Well I’m on yhe bus, and ley me just say, this thing is really damn hot, it doesn’t have AC, and there’s tons of people in here. AND I’m the last stop, so I have to suffer until 1545 maybe 1530 on good days, but that almost never happens. Well that’s it.
