Every year you celebrate the birthday of your kids and each time round, it seems to be the same boring stuff. Sending out invitations beforehand to relatives who stay in distant places, preparing lists of those who are closer! Checking out the lists to make sure they are updated and updating and correcting the wrong ones. This is generally followed by searching the internet to find some sites from where you purchase return gifts and finally ordering the birthday cards and mailing them.
Reluctantly, I went back to my car and returned with one flute, an E, which has a tone low enough that I hoped she could feel the vibrations. Going back into her room, I closed the door and tried to play softy so nobody would hear. With Alice lying in bed I began to play. None of the songs I had memorized came out. Instead, there were a series of notes that were magically strung together, creating a tune I had never played or heard. How old was this tune? Was this something a Native American played to his sweetheart because he couldn’t say the words publicly? Or was this a variation of a tune, someone on the Mongolian plains played forty thousand years ago on a bone flute in awe of the full moon?
TF: I’m on the West Coast Touring group. As far as differences between the two, very slight. Maybe a song or two. As far as the experience” No Difference” =2You’ll get the same magic no matter which group you see.TM: The TSO show is such a huge production. Do you ever get overwhelmed yourself by the size and scope of the shows?TF: I try not to think about too much or I’ll scare myself to death with all that stuff hanging over my head (laughing).
You need to break out of these traps now otherwise you will get to the end of another year and your muzik shqip 2019 ambition will seem even further away because you will tell yourself that you are a failure.
TM: I have to admit, my holiday season really doesn’t kick into full gear until I start playing the TSO cd’s and see you guys live. But in all fairness, there are a couple of songs I would really love to see you do live. Please pass this request along to Paul: “The Snow Came Down,” and “Find Our Way Home.” Paul, if you’re listening…. (laughing). Are there songs you yourself would like to add or take out of the set list this time around?
The way you sit and position your arms and hands directly affects how well and easily you are able to play. Your back should be straight, shoulders relaxed, upper arms vertical, forearms and hands horizontal and fingertips resting comfortably on the keys.
New for the Alpocalypse release, “TMZ” is a parody of Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me.” Something Al does in his parodies is placing the same word in the same spot of the song as the original, and in this song, he does it with “t-shirt.” (Like in “Couch Potato” he uses “Lifetime” the same place Eminem does in “Lose Yourself”). Hear it; you’ll know what I mean. “TMZ” is great because for most of the song, the narrator is anti-TMZ, critical of all the little stupid things TMZ catches, like bad hair days and dirty t-shirts. But then, when he remarks on DUIs and racist rants, the listener begins to wonder if the narrator does think that the sort of policing that TMZ does is all bad.
With these sounds that have been programmed by modern technology, there’s no surprise that you will actually be there when you listen to these programs.
