↑ Perhaps she just uses note mnemonics:
Wikipedia wrote:In Indian music the Sanskrit names Sa–Re–Ga–Ma–Pa–Dha–Ni (सा-रे-गा-मा-पा-धा-नि) are used, as in Kannada Sa-Ri-Ga-Ma-Pa-Dha-Ni (ಸ ರಿ ಗ ಮ ಪ ಧ ನೀ), Telugu Sa–Ri–Ga–Ma–Pa–Da–Ni (స–రి–గ–మ–ప–ద–ని), in Tamil (ச–ரி–க–ம–ப–த–நி) and in Malayalam (സ-രി-ഗ-മ-പ-ധ-നി). Byzantium used the names Pa–Vu–Ga–Di–Ke–Zo–Ni (Πα—Βου—Γα—Δι—Κε—Ζω—Νη).[

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Some musicologists are of the opinion that Satie was a sore loser, always crushed by Ravel. You'll tell me what you think.

Citing from memory, Satie once sent his business card to one of them with the comment: "Sir, you are an arse, but an arse without music." :mrgreen:

Didn't know that.

Here in the USA anyone not a music nerd hasn't heard of Satie, but anyone of my generation knows of Ravel because Bolero was the background music (and a plot point) for one of this gal's movies:

The Bolero is in the public domain now. Meanwhile, have some Art™:

Can't tell if this is supposed to be an innocent song about a cat, or about you-know-what. :notsure:

Though not the Japanese Petite British Original, I always liked:



which mixed in an actual black singer, the Late Claudia Fontaine.

Pink Floyd's internal conflicts make other bands seem well adjusted. Even without Yoko Ono or Courtney Love. Or two colossal cunts of brothers who only see one another when their Mum reminds them that the rent is due. Anyways, they originally fired the keyboardist for his lack of contribution.

He wrote this song.

Better than "Wish You were Here."

But then, most things are.

The Japanese Original Version is, of course:



– J. "You're Gonna Carry that Weight" D.
Mob of the Mean: Free beanie, cattle-prod and Charley Fan Club!
"Doctor X is just treating you the way he treats everyone--as subhuman crap too dumb to breathe in after you breathe out." – Don
DocX: FTW. – sparks
"Doctor X wins again." – Pyrrho
"Never sorry to make a racist Fucktard cry." – His Humble MagNIfIcence
"It was the criticisms of Doc X, actually, that let me see more clearly how far the hypocrisy had gone." – clarsct
"I'd leave it up to Doctor X who has been a benevolent tyrant so far." – Grammatron
"Indeed you are a river to your people.
Shit. That's going to end up in your sig." – Pyrrho
"Try a twelve step program and accept Doctor X as your High Power." – asthmatic camel
"just like Doc X said." – gnome
