    The title of a post says it all :If you could write a note to your younger self what would you say in only 2-3 words?
  2. Off Topic Pub
    I did this thread long ago, but it was forgotten and not many people replied. I want update! People have specialties on this forum. Some people really make an effort to contribute in specific ways either to the discussion or the community atmosphere. Some people really spend a lot of time in the...

    Okay this is what Liszt is often accused of (maybe not in those exact words but you get the point). So is it?
  4. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I know many people aren't a fan of translated operas, and it wouldn't be my primary method either. But as a side niche it interests me a bit. So what versions of these (or other English translated) operas do you find to be of reasonably good quality? And if you can't actually understand the...

In here you can post and talk about anything you like that is (largely) electronic. Just two rules: 1. Post one piece at a time 2. Say in a few...

    A new game which may or may not attract answers. It may be a bit involved. :o I think of a quotation & ask 'Who said...?' Example: 'Who said No more tears - I will think upon revenge?' The next poster answers the question - Mary, Queen of Scots (supposedly) after the murder of David Rizzio -...

    Not only one of the most beautiful but one of the most talented women in pop music. The Hounds of Love is a towering masterpiece which I never tire of. Continue to enjoy all her music just as much now as I did back in the day. 50 Words for Snow shows she hasn't lost her abilities in the...
