Usually you hear a lone violin in castles, accompanied by a still smoldering cigar.

They could have been bagpipers or accordionists.

We caught up with the castle's curator to discuss his thoughts on the situation...

I like the sound of pan pipes.

I also like mayonnaise.

I wouldn't enjoy large quantities of either.

Back in the early 90s, I used to walk to a friend's house and cut through the park -- shortened the trip by ~1/2 mile.  One morning I am wandering through the park, which was blanketed that morn with a thick mist.  Then I heard it-- in the distance, the mistakable wail of the bagpipe.

After noting the cliché and peering about for ghosts or the like, I followed the sound.  Eventually came upon a piper wandering lazily among an arrangement of picnic tables.  I hopped up on one and just sat, listening to him (I love the pipes).

Eventually, he noticed me but kept playing until, I assume, he reached the piece's natural end.  When he did, he stopped and looked at me. I asked, "Wife won't let you practice inside, huh?"  He hung his head with a sorrowful, "No...".

"The breathing techniques required to play these instruments for a few hours put you in a kind of trance," says Miguel Cordoba, who plays the siku flute.

Did anyone else read that as "skin flute" at first?

Ain't nobody gonna talk about the apparent Wolf infestation?

So their free time is spent rehearsing in the nearly 600-year-old palace grounds and exploring the surrounding woodland, home to 23 packs of wolves.

People who want to defend Maine (1.3 million) by pointing out NB has half as many people (778,000), are welcome to add the deaths and caseload of PEI, NS, and Newfoundland and Labrador to our totals. Still a fewer deaths. Leaving out NS is OK with me. Most of its deaths are in one senior's residence in Halifax, so NS probably isn't really fair to count.

Also, look at Trinidad and Tobago's numbers, or the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has 89 milion people now. Still better than the Yankee voyel and consonant-clipper state.

As for NYC, forgetaboutit. Even Long Island and the Hamptons are sheltering in place, and not paying their rents. Lots of luck collecting from the super-rich-assholes who live in the Hamptons, by the way. They make Sienfield characters look like norms instead of psychopathic narcissists.

Maybe this is the time that owls replaced pigeons as the main flying vermin of New New York City.

ArcadianRefugee: Wife won't let you practice inside, huh?


1980-ish, I worked as a sandwich maker/cook in a busy small town bar/restaurant.  Every now and then, some a-hole would come to the bar with his bagpipes.  This place wasn't huge, and it was an old building with 7-foot ceilings.   Even with the bar packed with noisy people, the sound of the bagpipes was absolutely excruciating.

Outdoors, they can be a lovely instrument.  Nothing gets me in the feels like "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipes at a funeral service.

Pan pipes, OTOH, were overdone in the 80's and 90's with that damn Zamfir guy and the commercials that ran all the time.   Good for the guy, because I'm sure he make boatloads of money, but if I never hear damn pan pipes the rest of my life, that would be great!
