You da man, Eric. Thanks for all your work!

(My goodness, I've been designated an "Honorary Warm Stranger." Such exalted status for an 'oomble bloke like me.... :D )

You're right, Chris. There is something quite extraordinary about the people who are calling Mr. Felt a "traitor." Conservative hypocrisy knows no bounds. Imagine - convicted Watergate Criminal/Certifiable Psycho Gordon Liddy says Mr. Felt behaved "unethically." Sheesh. Jesus was right. Some people ...

Good Heavens. Reduced in rank from Advanced Member to Newbie. Why, it's humiliating! :P How many posts must one have to attain the status of Warm Stranger?

I've listened to this CD at least once a day since I received it. Among the many highlights: Alan is nothing short of brilliant. "Hope On Fire" could almost be called "Alan On Fire," what with his driving intensity. During the last chorus of "Feather Moon," his violin is achingly beautiful. And on "...

Pinot Noir. Yuck. I'll stick with Merlot. ;) Actually, you're dead on, Chairman Mo. Gravity is pretty much what I'm talking about. Others have noted the waterfall-like feeling of the chords, especially the whirlpool feeling of the lower notes. I'm always reminded of my days practicing spins - what n...

Naw, no such luck. I haven't flown for some time. There's an old pilot's saying - "If God intended Man to fly, He would have given him more money!" These days, my flying is limited to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Gotta admit, it's pretty darn close. Plus, it's the only time I can sip Merlot while fly...

To answer Chairman Mo's question ... No, a Cub is not an open-cockpit, helmet-and-goggles biplane. But the experience is similar. Here's the view from the right-hand side: <a href='http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=825693&WxsIERv=Cvcre%20W-3P-65%20Pho&WdsYXMg=Hagvgyrq&QtODMg=Jrfg%20Purfgre%20-%2...

I received mine in the mail yesterday. Good heavens, I still can't believe Vienna would take the time and trouble to personally mail a CD to some anonymous fan. Hard to imagine any other artist doing anything like that. Thank you, Vienna. (I ordered a t-shirt, just to make it somewhat worth her trou...

Actually, I didn't say "little bastards." Just "bastards." As I wrote in an earlier post, I must at least partially blame the sadists and sociopaths responsible for the atrocities she documented, along with those who continue to insist that those atrocities never happened. I also include those who t...

The SF Chronicle Sunday Magazine ran an in-depth story about Iris Chang this weekend.

[QUOTE]Branson has a range of performers from Country Music, classical music (Lawrence Welk Orchestra relocated here), and singers like Andy Williams etc. It is kind of a mixture of everything. Lawrence Welk, a classical musician??? It's a little hard to accept that concept. And-a now, the boys-a wi...

A Doctor For Singers Not a question, exactly. Just some possibly helpful info. It's something I emailed to you last year, but it may have been lost in the shuffle of the 1500 messages you had at the time. If so, it could be important enough to repeat here. Besides, it might prove useful to other si...

Dear Ms. Abramowitz: Thanks for taking the questions. First: Speaking of Q&A, I’m wondering if I’m the only one who, while watching “Inside The Actors Studio,” has casually thought, How would Vienna answer the James Lipton/Bernard Pivot Questionnaire? No doubt, many of your fans are simply dying to ...

Thanks, Eric. Actually, I had seen that link before, although I'm not sure when or how. Great photos by Adam Tow, especially the shot of the "Four Tough Guys." ;) I'd like to have heard you and Gabe play the opening cello duet for "Snow Angels." It's a wonderful bit of composition - deceptively simp...

Geez, late with my homework again. No wonder I never graduated from college. Vienna’s performance at The Independent was truly memorable, for several reasons. First: I’m a huge fan of Odessa Chen. She has one of the purest, clearest soprano voices I’ve ever heard. Vienna has one of the purest, clear...
