They could have Earthweek, where they have days and things, then they would likely have Tuesdays and every thing that goes with them.

Howdy!


Here is this week's EcmoRandomNumbers Totalfarker.

It is nearly done.  Need to complete mixing and mastering it, and any final problems.  Just finished adding in two grand pianos, better bells, like Thielemann used, clarinets near the end of the quite part, and horns, primarily at the end, and a bit at the start.  I tried to make the octave-higher vocal copies work, but they sounded strange.
 
2022-05-17 9:13:26 PM  
I like the sound of the background music.  It is sort of hollow and ethereal.

That is usually better than Mysteries of the Abandoned.  I'll switch.

I was looking at last week's thread on Sunday and noticed this...
Fark user imageView Full Size
The eye of Horus is a fermata. It's for the conductor to hold as long as he sees fit. Usually done as part of a cadence. The bars around the whole note turn the whole note into a breve (pronounced "brev.") It doubles the value of the whole note because this section is written in 6/2 time. A whole note by itself would only be 2 beats, so to complete the measure mathematically, you have to double the whole note to be 4 beats.

It is stormy here, lightning, thunder, and the sky was yellow before it turned dark.  I saw the eclipse last night, anyone else?

Thanks!  A breve.  That completes the measure, it was the missing link to the 6/2 timing.  For the fermata, wait, doesn't the fermata make your hands bleed?

For the Fermata, and you can hear it, I used 1.3577 seconds.  It is the average of the Levine, Previn, Jochum, and Shaw fermata for that note.  It gives just enough time for the echoes to die away.

It's just dry and windy here. It's the west.

The fermata is used on thou of 'wherefore are thou'.

At least the snow is gone, hopefully.

Had some massive thunderstorms last night. Went through fairly quickly, but the house was shaking.

It's based on Lovecraft's "The Music of Erich Zann."

Tobacco based upon a book?  It must be distinctive, crawling, and alive.

Gosh, I'm gonna have to start smoking a pipe if it makes you write like that.  He probably grips the pipestem in his teeth as he types his review of the pipeherb.

As far as my expert knowledge goes, "alkaline water" as an oral treatment for anything is pure bullshiat.

It sounds sort of fruitish maybe?  The mint is a nice touch.

I had some blue lotus with Chamomile and green tea a few days ago.  I could get into a cup of tea.  I have some 7-year old chaga, but it takes a bit of culture shift to prepare and drink it.  I have to sort of become a Wood Elf.
