In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and he said "Damn it, I blew it again!" But then God allowed Vladimir Horowitz to play Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto #3 with Eugene Ormandy conducting the New York Philharmonic, and God said "Finally, I created perfection!" Then God rested on the 7th day knowing full well he'd never achieve perfection again.

"Weezy"? That's me, up at midnight with an asthma attack trying to soothe it with Advair and Rachmaninoff.

Oh, Moosedrool, you are not aptly named, my dear saintly man to offer such a video of my precious Horowitz playing Rach's #3!! I suggest you change your moniker from "Moosedrool" to "Godsaliva"!!

Yep, Advair is post-Romantic, somewhere between Stravinsky and Blind Lemon Jefferson.

And then came Pavarotti and all was right with the World.

Why would an all powerful god need to "rest"?! Making so many people was not his best move either!!

Years ago, I saw a live performance of Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto by Leonard Shure, a lesser known (but still genius) contemporary of Horowitz's.

I remember walking out of the performance and remarking that I'd just seen God, Padmasambahva, Shiva, Werner and Locker (hey, those guys needed a good court jester!).

no one ever speaks
of the 8th day cause that one doesn't fit
within our understanding:

day 8, you know, infinity got erect.

god woke up and she had some excess verve,
for the day prior, she did nothing at all.

she attacks day eight like it's eternity's virginity.

no one is safe.
the prophets get laid.
then she undoes her son's disciples.

still unsatisfied,
she seduces the fallen angel, satan
(and this is when she got pregnant with reality, i.e. you an me)

satan is put away wet,
and god pulls up her ripped and now fragrant panties
and hits more town.

sailors line up.
the trees they attempt to cross the genetic line.

all said and done,
she's her eye upon one more man,
her father.

this is where time stops,
and love begins to unravel.

nothing is left of the exchange
besides doom, and
the requisite dissolution of our's marriage
with hope.

bravo!

encore!

m-mus agrees.

m-m-m--mussorgrsky (full of himself at his own exhibition) walks the gallery end to end forever.

no windows, no frames, just shattered pieces of m-mirror on the gallery floor, so he can look up his dress.

no ecncores, just ongoing repetition of The (Theme = the + me).

it's e-z as pi after u die.



KCofC--The real mus is in the schizzer, just ducked out to take a d-u-m-p.

His true feelings about Mussorgsky are exactly that, I can tell you. He much prefers YOUR pictures, but not all at once, that could be fatal.

I thought that on the 7th day, God didn't start any new forum threads...
