Disinformation

Disinformation is basically misinformation

coupled with malicious intent.

One shield against this is Maria Ressa,

CEO of Rappler, who uses words as a lance

but subjects herself to judicial repercussions

 in the effort.

as a whistleblower.

This word is in itself a disinformation

and is being used against her

with impunity.

Bird Waltzes

Male birds do the courtship dance

to get their mates.

Can’t say much about this ritual for humans

as to who does the courting.

Which may have given rise to the expression—

this is just for the birds.

Zigeunerweisen,

a favorite of Jascha Heifetz,

composed by Pablo Sarasate,

himself a virtuoso.

But before this comes little Sarah Chang,

fresh from the Juillard School

to play a Paganini.

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2

The ever popular Hungarian Rhapsody No.2

by Franz Liszt

is given a new twist by Vladimir Horowitz.

It is an arrangement actually not a twist.

What was accomplished is add to the original composition

variations of the theme by using the same bars

in some sequential and contrapuntal renditions.

You may at some points of the rendition recognize 

that the left hand is playing some bars while

the right hand is playing other bars at the same time.

But listen, anyway, and then get blasted at the finale.

Hiaoui Zhang plays the Liszt-Horowitz

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2

Another thing to note is the piano used.

The tone sounds ljke a bell

with huge, whole and loud tones

that demand attention.

I am unable to read the brand name, though.

must be a Steinway

Scheherazade

Rimsky-Korsakov weaves a ballad to interpret

the “1001 and one Nights’

or more popularly named as “The Arabian Nights”.

This is a compilation of the stories titled Sinbad.

Alkladin, Ali baba, prince Kalender, and etc.

The main story goes that a woman, slated for execution,

narrated to the Caliph a captivating story each night.

As a result, the Caliph liked her tales so much that she

pardoned her and kept her as story-teller.

The woman’s name was Scheherazade,

and the tales are compiled and titled

“Arabian Nights.”

In this performance,

the violinist plays a theme to depict Scheherazade

as she begins another tale for the Caliph’s ears.

Visualize the Storm,the Young Prince and the Princess, and etc.

Jascha Heifetz

The film “Carnegie Hall”

presents us with the only video of Jascha Heifetz

playing a complete concerto Movement

Anyway, while you are busy watching the fingering

observe also the violin that he uses.

This must be a very, very expensive violin.

Because it talks.

Rhapsodies

This concert with the performance

of Rachmaninoff’s

Rhapsody on a Theme By Paganini

and Gershwin’s

Rhapsody in Blue 

was dome with more emphasis on virtuosity

than anything else.

My question would be :

What’s the big hurry for?

These were played as if they are in a rush

to get away from the stage before the

janitors arrive to clean it up.

The Omega Man

He is the last man on earth

who has not been affected by the virus

and has the serum in his blood

to immunize all the people on earth.

Omega Man.mp4

Omega Man.mpg

This maybe is the way to eliminate

the Covid 19.

 

(The thing is to produce a serum

from the blood of those who have recovered completely.)

(one question : will this virus thrive in an acidic environment?

if not, give the patients rice wine in drinks or doses

Brandy will, hic, do!)

The Fight To Save Taxpayers’ Money

 

Negotiations with the indigenous protesters

necessarily mean giving them more money

coming from the taxpayers.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer fights to prevent this.

Remember that Quebec plane manufacturer Bombardier

is now having its annual need for another bailout.

This Trudeau spendthrift government is again on its plans

to spend taxpayers’s money for a bailout to Bombardier

and another handout to whomever leads the Indians.
