All haemorrhoids are the same. All asteroids are unique. That is me.

I just need one, that is all...

Fred, you might be interested to know that there are craters on
Venus and the Moon called 'Moore', and HHH, you might be pleased
to know that the Moon also has one called 'Lamb'. I'm hoping to be
immortalised by being the dedicatee of a composition. (The money's
here if anyone needs to be bribed!)

... but Tim you have an airline named after you, what more do you need (and don't answer that)

PS to Fred, try telling a sufferer from heamorrhoids that they are all the same and I am sure they will re-educate you and gladly donate them to medical science.

This was uploaded by Sibley today:-

Publication Name: The alphabet
URL: https://urresearch.rochester.edu/instit ... onNumber=1

Composer:Mozart, Wolfgang, Amadeus (1756 - 1791)

Is there an abecedarian amongst us who can confirm that this really is by Mozart?

Re: Rarity and curiousity-Back Matter

Post by Scriabinoff » Mon Dec 31, 2012 2:37 am

Not quite sure how I came across this curiosity. Small collection of "score backs" or "back matter"- you know that page where the publishers usually advertise their other wares or other misc. sometimes related (sometimes not) information.
*sincerest apologies if this already exists on PP. with the trouble I have had trying to log in (and stay logged in without getting booted off), I could not quite search as usual.

I found this post a little ambiguous ... no doubt you have had piles ....
of correspondence ...

to dwarf this single (and therefore unique), but ....

stellar post.

Wishing you speedy recovery from your cosmic delusions or posterior distractions, (could be the same thing), whichever - Happy New Year!

Incidentally Uranus is a planet is it not - not an asteroid !
Unless it has top billing, I suppose.

[Just thought I'd join in .. don't know what I'm talking about really .. bad ice cubes!]

Artist Kerry Morrison and composer Jon Hering have transformed
'bum' notes produced by Liverpudlian birds pooing randomly on musical
staves placed on the ground into a 20-minute musical score, entitled
'Bird Sheet Music: A Movement in Three Parts'. (Maybe the word 'Sheet'
should be replaced by 'Sh*t'.)
It will receive its world premiere today at Tate Liverpool.
What next? A chewing-gum concerto - based on the disgusting sight of
what covers of pavements of Leicester's streets?

Does such a thing as a 19 tone equal temperament piano exist?
Is there any piano music available written for this scale?
Sometimes, having C sharp = D flat etc. gets a bit boring!

Q. When is a piano not a piano?
A. When it's a piano arithmometer - a French adding machine from 1855.
