    People who are obsessed by Scriabin..... :mad:

    However, I'll choose that one because I have never been able to warm to Liszt.


    Brahms' Second Piano Concerto, Second movement
    or
    Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto, Second Movement

    most discreditable musical obsession:

    Scriabin
    Shostakovich
    Sibelius

    I'm not aware that either appliance is hard to live without.

    I had to Google her. She reminds me of nothing so much as a character in the parody of low budget foreign TV channels, Chanel 9, which for the uninitiated was a part of the BBC comedy The Fast Show. Or to put it more succinctly, nay.

    Who was the opera singer whose choices consisted of only her own recordings?

    So far, I've found that Birgit Nilsson chose six of her own recordings, while Kyra Vayne and Sari Barabas were much more modest, leaving it at three of eight. Perhaps naively, I was a little surprised to see how many female opera singers listed even one of their own recordings.

    Rolling and bouncing Murray just edges cheering and headbanging Murray.

    I can think of crimes from both categories which warrant indefinite imprisonment, so I'm not sure I can say that one type of violence is more deserving of severe legal punishment than the other.

    littering or jaywalking?

    Well, there's the author of this book.

    Personally, I'd choose Hanson, because they appeared on Space Ghost Coast to Coast and both the host and locust bandleader wanted to cut their "beautiful girl hair".

    Carry on (or not).

    Would our human psychology be significantly different if we had evolved as intelligent marine creatures as opposed to our current forms?

    1. More objectionable:
    A show about traveling the country ruining peoples marriages (staged cheat-catch situatations, hidden cameras, exposing financial info)
    or
    A show about my quest for district legalization of my marriage to G.G. Allin's dead rotting corpse?

    +


    2. See above.

    1) The second sounds legit, so it's the former by default.
    2) Probably not.

    Have I just watched the first twenty minutes of Persona on YouTube?

    yes
    no

    Perhaps Bibi Andersson caught your eye as it did mine. :grope:

    You don't think living underwater would yield different psychological insights? :( I think they might.

    The second sounds legit?? :shuffle: Are you saying I should do it? :soapbox:

    Did you ever pee your pants at school?
    {yes} {no}
