where the shit are they giving away baby grands???
craigslist, and other moving-sale type online listings. quite a few of the ads basically say, if you pay to have it moved, its yours, and a bunch of others are under 500. which is insanely cheap, if the soundboard’s ok and there isn’t any other serious damage. I’m sure some of them are too damaged, but it would seem if you are patient and willing to spend your time checking out used pianos, it’s entirely possible to find a free one.
crying because there are literally free and/or affordable baby grands in quality condition in my area but I live in an apartment and there is no way one could fit in here.
I am so. so. so sad.
srsly if any of you live near boston we could go in on a cheap studio apartment and split it like 50 ways to facilitate baby grand rescue.
Ok no, Lisztomania was so much better than that
Meet Franz Liszt.
Liszt was a German composer and pianist in the 1800s, and he was very popular. Like. VERY popular. You know Beatlemania? And today’s Directioners?
Yeah, Lisztomania was basically the precursor to that. It was a term coined by Heinrich Heine, to describe what was basically hysteria that was created by people who heard Liszt perform. And back in the 1840s, ‘mania’ was a much stronger term— people literally fainted, and some critics were worried about contagion and suggested an immunization. This guy was that good.
og rockstar, adoring fans used to literally collect his discarded cigar stubs and enshrine them in precious metals to wear as jewelry.
respect where respect is due.
Fifths. They are just insane. Included: how a fifth fits geometrically, a chart of perfect harmonious 432hz frequencies, whole number ratios; the human twist of consciousness; and how to tune a guitar with perfect harmony (for a single key only)
