Re: Glee

Sure, as its currently going, its not going to be the most original series ever, but thats OK, Sometimes its alright to tell the same stereot...

For some reason I think this is one of the (few) traditions that I like to keep up. We're going to the opera later next month (five of us) at the Opera House, so the plan is to dress up nice. There's no logical reason to say that we should dress up for the opera or an orchestra any more than going o...

Re: Cool Chapter Titles

Comic fantasy seems to specialise in witty chapter titles. One of the best ones was a trope-breaker comic fantasy novel called Go Quest, Young Man by K B Bogen. Each chapter had a punny title and an alternative title, both of which referenced the goings on in the chapter.

Re: Traditional Music (Indian, Chinese, Iranian, etc)

I love Bulgarian choral singing, and its opposite (in terms of style), Georgian choral singing (and Russian male choirs). Bulgarian is generally larynx up and close mouths - lots of higher frequency harmonics, Georgian is dropped larynx and open mouths (fewer harmonics).
