It feels like 10 but is only 4. Unless you have the version for the visually impaired? (How could you laugh at such a thing? Shame!) :lol:

At least I didn't say anything about Special Olympics!
Barack Obama :arrow::mrgreen:

Yes, welcome.

"Good lord, what have we done?" That about sums up my statement on the Commander in Chief.

I, for one, was not offended by the joke in the slightest... however I am not surprised that some people made a big deal out of it!

hehe, welcome to the forum! To put songs on your iPod, you need to import them into iTunes first. Then you can copy them to your iPod.

Good luck!

I assumed that was another spamming attack.

Borrowing all this money and spending it is like having a morbidly obsese person choke down more food. Besides this money doesn't even exist. It's borrowed from the chinese with 900Billion +/- in interest every year.

I'm moving to Canada :D

I know we're OT; maybe move to another thread? (OT comment in red) Sorry to offend those with color blindness... :lol:

I was not offended by Obama's comment, either Nico (gaffes are bound to captured in today's 24/7 media environment!) The very offensive spending by the administration is certainly a shock to the system.

I don't want him (Obama) to fail; if socialism works, I'm not against it. However, I have the strong feeling it's NOT going to work. I feel so incredibly nervous about the state of our economy. I feel like I'm blogging...


Anyway, "how do you guys memorize your music?" In my current layoff from the piano (a back injury) I memorize music by listening, watching and following along with the score. On any given day, even if my "fingers" are a bit out of shape, I can still play something if I have a good aural/theoretical understanding of the music in my head. Now more than ever, I've come to understand that muscle memory is but a fragment of the whole, a minor one at that.

I have to brush upon my French (my Canadian grandparents would be turning in their grave if they knew how rusty I'd let myself get.)

Socialism won't work in the US. How many citizens will want 50, 60, or 70 or even 80% income tax? How many of us want to foot medical bills of hypocondriacs and those who abuse the system?

I say, stop the spending and let those companies who are doing poorly go under and be no longer in existence.

If I it were up to me, stupidity would be a henious crime worth the firing squad. The execs of companies like AIG would be dragged out in the street and shot, their assests and the assests of their families would be seized and given back to be used properly.

If it were up to me, I would say no to spending and borrowing money until a little bit of research is done. Why feed a machine gun bullets when you dont know where you are shooting? Rest assured the money being borrowed is being wasted by the big shots, not to mention greedy folk in power because they do not know logic but mastered bureaucracy.

And just for good measure; the only stable form of government is a theocracy. How many social and political uphevals have you heard from the Vatican lately :lol:

They often have difficulty playing just run through several times and memorize them. To achieve success in my head for quite strong performance, I know exactly each note and its value to all voices, which is so painful in practice.This makes me so scared, just think based on muscle memory, because if I am under pressure to change my way of thinking in any way that I can continue playing without the music - this is especially true of Bach.
