1  Practice Break / Chit-Chat / Re: Who's going to ITF Redlands???!!!??? on: Jun 10, 2017, 02:15AM
I will be there...

I looked at the program.....it's stacked ! I'm not looking forward to deciding which recitals/masterclasses I will attend

I'll be there! Looking forward to meeting up with a bunch of forum peeps! Who's going to be there?

will you bring horns ?

I might want to buy a new large-bore and I'll make time to try some horns, including your horn(s)

I made an offer that was admittedly low and his response was:

I don't know if I'll be able to recover from that one.

A long while ago I sent him a message that his price was too high, in attempt to help him out

His response was something like "I know what it's worth"

I have a Bach NY 12 mpc, unused since it was gold plated by goldchops
I use my MV 11c, also plated by goldchops

Make an offer !

PM me your email or phone number for photographs
Interesting trades considered: sports memorabilia, nice headphones, Don Julio 1942, sterling silver flatware, etc

this is not a 12C

I sold a piece recently for $66

I insured it for $100

Cost about $2.50 extra

Piece of mind is (always) worth it imo

I visited Rice and sat in on my friend's lesson with Alan Barnhill. Now THAT was a good lesson.

anyway, apparently Rice has only one ensemble: just the orchestra.

It's in a nice area of town. the music building is very minimalistic: two long parallel halls with plain white walls. it's quite cool
7  Practice Break / Chit-Chat / Re: Anyone Else Into Animation? on: May 02, 2017, 03:13PM
I used to watch a bunch of anime, starting with Dragon Ball Z in the 90s. never got into pokemon but I had the gameboy game. very fun and catchy music.

Another favorite was Gundam Wing, followed by Gundam Seed.

Trigun was good....Vash was a good character.

After watching the Gunslinger Girl intro song by The Delgados "the light before we land," I bought the album HATE. it's very good.

I have probably a lot of episodes to finish out the Naruto Shippuden series.

non-Japanese I was really into Spawn comics, even the corny live-action movie. The animated Spawn was very cool. I have the dvds somewhere.

Rick and Morty on I think cartoon network is funny.

when I was in Japan, there's a section of Tokyo I visited pretty much catering to all the geek/nerd stuff. I think those kinds of people are called Otaku. That kind of thing is trending here in the US, what with all the Comic-cons happening seemingly everywhere.

I have a fair amount of masterclass notes that I've been meaning to share.....

These two are related to range

Even range is an art

I played Maundy Thursday. Direct deposit should be made on the 30th but should be $200 for one rehearsal (on Wednesday) and one one-hour service.

It'll make a difference if you're doing A and A for a competition or audition where they've specified the edition. Idea!

it's nothing like that. I just like the piece. it's the opening track on two cds I own - Mark Kellog and Brent Phillips

As a general rule... most people don't use Facebook for business. That is your personal time.

I understand.....

I didn't have a phone number at that time

I'll be a whiner all day. I didn't grow up in ye olde times

2.5 weeks is a long time to not even hear peep. like I said, I wrote a message on FB. he's "liked/shared" things.....

first of all

second of all

my hand could REALLY use the relief from holding my horn. my hand felt a little tingley today after playing a few hours.
and not a little tingley like "oh, that's cute;" it didn't feel good

third of all

I didn't KNOW this would be the situation

I called and left a message, anyhow

If anyone has a phone number for Mr. Sheridan, I would appreciate it if you shared it with me.

I still haven't heard from him, despite friending on Facebook and getting accepted, and writing him a message there.


Maybe he'll be at ITF but that's a ways off....
