an under-explored potential sea of creativity
Eating from a food truck?
Have you ever played an instrument?
Who was the better pianist in your opinion?
Ashkenazy playing Chopin's Barcarrole
Rubinstein (but it's 96 Worlds close).
Ashkenazy playing Chopin's Etude Op. 10 No.1
Sparks ignoring Ms. Dance because she's listening to Ashkenazy playing the Barcarolle. It is so amazing and makes Sparks' heart swell with love.
Mlle. Dance is in tears, having just told Sally-Ann Stapleford that she was pressured to cast her vote the other way. A second gold shall be awarded, with pancakes for all.
Sorry, Ms Dance. I hope Tamara Moskvina is making ze pancakes.
So, who's going to be stuck with the first one?
Jamie Sale, naturally.
With a little snowball on top.
#445: Argerich, always.
was perhaps hot enough for an FHM spread once, but no longer
always looked like Bullwinkle anyway
whined her way to gold
or all of the above?
Jamie sale is the most repulsive thing that ever lived.
(Jk she's ok i wouldnt do her though.)
Not into any of them, but Scott Hamilton = HOMOPHOBIC TROLL.
Agenda for Wednesday, besides work:
Soak in some sun
Get a good run/walk in and breathe in some fresh air
Watch the waves in the bay or the ocean
Try to stay offline and away from TV sets
Get in touch with old friends and tell them you love them and are proud of them
All of the above
All of the above.
purple Sweety, Wheezy, and Sneezy?
Brumaire, because it looks like it was the name of one of Karl's ancestors.
Scriabin's piano sonata no. 5:
Alexei Sultanov interpretation from adult years
Alexei Sultanov interpretation from youthful years
Yuja Wang interpretation (and no, her characteristically skimpy attire doesn't count)
Sean Chen performance at 2013 Cliburn competition (scroll to 36.40 if the link doesn't already do so)
Definitely Sultanov's adult rendition
movies I just finished watching the trailers for:
Pompeii for the history (and looks like some smut too )
Rush for the hot bods and amazing accents
skip the other 2 - can't stand Nicolas Cage
Do you follow the JGP Circuit
healthy vegetarian dishes:
over roasted root vegetables
cream of broccoli soup
Butternut squash and parsnip bisque
All of the above! (Ravenous omnivore, otherwise.)
Jason Bentley's voice:
all of the above
All of the above
Which state was the upcoming tv show Sleepy Hollow filmed in?
I'll go with your answer, North Carolina then.
Where to go for pre-show dinner tonight?
Pretty nice Ethiopian place
Pretty nice soul food/southern place
Cheap but good/fresh Mexican taqueria
Pretty good beer hall/gastropub
Pretty good pizzeria
"Slow food" locavore haven
pretty nice Ethiopian place
coastal North Carolina
Appalachian North Carolina
purple South of the Border
purple never been and refuse to make an uninformed choice (like that's ever stopped me )
purple have been to NC (to Salisbury one time, in fact, re: #461) but don't intend on going back there or anywhere in the South unless it's a brief weekend in FL or a quick connection through CLT just for airline miles' sake, to the extent US remains a UA partner
Favorite places for Nationals?
San Jose, because of Kwan and Galindo's respective wins.
Of the top four ladies' free skates at JGP Slovakia, I preferred Sakhanovich's by far.
So did I.
Chyld, you significantly underrate Karen Chen's skating.
Chyld, you significantly underrate Alexandra Proklova's skating.
Chyld, you significantly underrate Riona Kato's skating.
Quit being fatuous, chyld.
purple haven't seen any of the competition
So did I.
"Child Rowland to the dark tower came" (no, not the Browning poem )
Mysterious and thrilling
An elegant line, but there are better in Lear
A bit boring, innit?
Purple newborn chyld
mysterious and thrilling
"Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night!"
"Remind me to tell you about the time I looked into the heart of an artichoke."
purple from Shakespeare to Mankiewicz is a sad declension indeed
ETA: Yay that we agree!
Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night
Better slow love song:
I'll Stand By You
Landslide, but I don't like either of them much. Sorry, Buzz.
"Remind me to tell you about the time I looked into the heart of an artichoke." I've heard the other one too often.
Bun in the oven
Big with child
Bun in the oven ( got something you wanna tell us Orientalplane? )
In-N-Out Burger, for its reputation and pop cultural presence.
sunset on Earth
sunset on Mars?
I could make a joke about that, but I know that you and Buzz have very delicate sensibilities.
I like the Mars sunset very much, but if it were always the same, I'd choose Earthian sunsets for their colour and variety.
Purple Edward Lear
That's it. I'm staying out of the thread until siouxdonym sends me two Double-Doubles and a Minute Maid lemonade in the mail.
Malvolio or Polonius?
I think Polonius has more "meat" on him. Or am I still thinking of Burger-In-Burger-Out?
Three Shakespeare plays that I'm not very fond of:
A Midsummer Night's Dream
The Winter's Tale
The Merchant of Venice
2) Why does reading this thread suddenly make me dirty?!
September 15 people:
Tommy Lee Jones
Prince Harry of Wales
purple no more birthday ToToToTs ever, please
The new rumoured Harry Potter spin off movie:
I can't say Nay but that's mainly because I'm indifferent to the Harry Potter franchise.
D/W's Scheherazade: yay, nay, indifferent/haven't seen it?
Haven't seen it
I should have for breakfast:
Bagel & cream cheese
Toast and jam
Cereal and milk
What should I make for dinner
(can you tell the cool weather has set in )
