  1. This is not good - strength and power to all that suffer now. Beirut - Santa Fe Your days in one This day undone (The kind that breaks under) All day at once (for me, for you) I'm just too young (And what of my heart) This day was once (Silence before) All grace of lost Can't wait at all (Can't wait at all) Temptation won And what ever comes through the door I'll see it face to face All by your place Sign me up Santa Fe And call your son Sign me up Santa Fe On the cross Santa Fe And all I want Sign me up Santa Fe And call your son And I and I and I alone want you to know And I and I and I alone And I and I and I alone want you to know And I and I and I alone Your days in one This day undone (The kind that breaks under) All day at once (for me, for you) I'm just too young (And what of my heart) Sign me up Santa Fe And call your son Sign me up Santa Fe On the cross Santa Fe And all I want Sign me up Santa Fe And call your son

    Laurel or Yanny?

    Hmmm - I'm really interested in this. I hear Yanny and unlike with the colours of the dress I can't make it switch (at pitch up 30% I hear Yorrel). I don't think the young ears explanation holds (by making assumptions on the above posters age). I think it has more to do with what frequencies we have trained ourselves to focus on. I'd be interested in posters impressions when listening to this frequency sweep. I have the impression that the tone is loudest at around 1500 Hz and that the volume drops sharply at 5 kHz I notice no change anymore above 16 kHz.
  3. Last week on 'record store day' I bought a compilationn of the Flamin' Groovies in nice violet vinyl. The Flamin' Groovies - Slow Death is my favorite song so far. And a life recording of Hot Tuna at the New Orleans Blues House '69 because I love Jack Casady's gnarly bass. Also I'm going to order Hop Along's new album Bark Your Head Off, Dog I've already heard 'Tell Me What The Writer Meant' six or seven times on NPR all songs and it didn't wear down from the original excitement of recognizing Frances Quinlan's voice. Thanks again to Mr. X, for bringing them to my attention.

    What's For Dinner, Take 7

    On our side of the pond the closest thing to ramps is probably Bärlauch (bear leeks) - ramsons. They have become very popular in the past decades, so that you'll find them a lot in supermarkets in germany though they're usually cultivated and lack the flavor of the wild variety. I just use chives instead (for I'm stingy and lazy).

    Stark: Name or Title

    Yes, I think Stark might have been the title of an office before it became the name of a House. From an old post.
  8. I like the Ofra Haza version, I also like her other songs that keep the focus on her voice. I heard Kashmir done by Plant and some North African muscians on the radio, it blew my mind. I don't know if Page ws involved as well and I don't think it was the version with the Egyptian musicians you find on you tube. A little over thirty years ago I took an album by the Inca Babies called Rumble to the USA for an exchange year. It was inspired by the Link Wray song of the same name (there was a mediocre rendition on the album, that got me nonetheless. My favorite songs were 16 Tons of Fink and The Interior). Tonight there is a documentary on Arte TV about Link Wray and native american rock, most europeans will be able to watch it here. Only in the last years have I discovered the Link Wray beyond Rumble and Switch Blade. My favorite song of his at the moment is Fire and Brimstone.

    U.S. Politics: We're Saying Merry Christmas, Again

    The Black Bear, thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about one of my favorite movies . Too bad that life is not anywhere close to it and Trump isn't in the remotest sense close to Mr. Happer (Freddy Trump might have been...) Under the pavement there lies Ben's Beach. (extra points for people who get the reference).

    Villains and heroes in game of thrones.

    I do not have much time, so I just drop two things that Martin has said on the matter of - Villains and - Heroes

    Rest In Peace Roy Dotrice

    Sad news. I probably wouldn't be on this forum or delved into Martin's work, if he hadn't made A Song Of Ice And Fire come to life. I hope he was aware of the pleasure he gave to so many people before he crossed over.

    Tom Petty dies of cardiac arrest at 66

    I pray for another miracle - Tom Petty is a humble genius! - a rare person, we cannot have enough of. Tom on writing The Tweeter and the Monkeyman (no it's not about big D - not about you either Tris - but some lines resonate oddly familiar.) "It was mostly Bob writing it all by himself. I was just credited for remembering some lines he forgot, which became the chorus" As I remember it from this video.

    Who would have harder time adapting.

    1317 is a really bad year to adapt to in Europe. It was the time of the Great Famine. I also wonder what modern profession or skillset could have been most usefull in those times. I think that being able to read and write latin would have insured a half way secure position, but probably would have raised a lot of suspicion against you, had they noticed you were a woman, unless you could pass as a noble. I'd probably be best at dy(e)ing, since I learned some basic techniques from some centuries earlier an a bit further north (Bryneich), from this song, Weaver - Richard Dawson.

    mercenary a song of ice and fire

    This is true, they will still cost you however, as they won't pay for the journey and will expect food and - err well probably rather camp followers for comfort than actual lodging.
