What's Mozart's take on filesharing [Jan. 27th, 2006|10:17 pm]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

Leigh & I went to a birthday party for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart -
Unfortunately, it was held in a restaurant with crappy food and crappier atmosphere (*cough*smokers *cough*) So we ended up leaving shortly after arriving - My parents, Leigh's parents & my brother & sisters in law were there - so it was nice to get together again even if Leigh & I were party poopers
Normally the symphony performances we attend to hear my brother & sister in law perform in are free of smoke and chattering restaurant goers, so to be honest I didn't feel bad about leaving- the music was buried in the restaurant buzz. Leigh felt much better after we got home, so that's a good thing.

I went for a blood test today - >.< ahhh I felt rather tired and sluggish today, perhaps I should have waited til I felt more energetic.. Oh well- I just hope my hemoglobin is OK so my doctor doesn't threaten me with a transfusion or surgery.

Thanks to the lovely tmsj I was able to watch the Laruku Asialive special. *-* My hope is that Hyde can sing a cover of "When I'm 64" XD While I had read reports of what was said, there was something oddly inspiring about actually hearing them say things like "Nothing is going to change, we'll be doing the same thing for years" & perhaps they really have made a niche for themselves in the peace movement - as I found this listed under "Laruku" in yahooauction:

^-^ I find photoblogs fun - & the charming fadestory has just started one that is quite clever - The photoblog that I am really enjoying is Vegan Lunchbox I think this caring Mom could convert a lot of people into vegetarians - or at least entice them to trying a few things. Perhaps some of the Moms on my list would enjoy a look at the blog - just because you can see what love and fun she packs along with the lunch for her little Schmoo Perhaps it's the petname Schmoo I find so endearing -- (reminds me of a certain someone & her Shmoopie)

There's an anecdote about Mozart being one of the first to breach copyright.
I don't have all the details, but it seems at the time when Wolfgang was still a child, there were certain pieces of music played in the Salzburg cathedral that were "copyrighted" (nobody could have the music sheets). It turns out this music was very beautiful, and many had tried to acquire these music sheets that were kept in great secrecy.
Wolfgang, intrigued himself by it, decided to acquire them in a very original way.
He sat down at the cathedral while the music was being played, with his notebook and pen, and wrote down every single note that was played.

Soon after, the music sheets were available everywhere.


BTW, that ring is very commonplace. I've seen it countless times. I think I even owned one when I was a teenager. (Or was it one with the anarchy emblem...?)

Oh, btw.

Check this. (It's not perverted! I promise!) It's sure to give me indigestion, but I don't know... others might find it OK. XDD

that Hyde figure is awesome, I like it. Oh and I totally agree, smokers ruin eating out for me also. I dont know how they can eat and do that at the same time anyway its just nasty. Of course I would say that, cause I dont like it.....so maybe me is biased.
