It was my understanding that everyone had heard...

That the bird is the word! :lol:
(A completely random reference to the 1963 song "Surfing Bird" the most annoying thing I've ever heard.)

I'm watching that silly cartoon "Family Guy" last night and that was the theme of the show. It was one of the very few times I've literally held my side laughing. Peter Griffin finds a record of the song and plays it till Stewie gets a nosebleed.

For those of you unfamiliar with the song, here it is. (It'll get stuck in your head like a bad toothache.) Sorry.

BTW, making a new game...suggestions? I could do more name that place but it's getting a bit tedious, IMO. Maybe I should make a pot party....I mean potpourri. :oops: :lol:

A piano pot party sounds interesting. :wink:

hhmmm ... I think I'll be washing my hair! :lol:

btw Pete ... slamming new sigline!

speaking of Family Guy ... there's a really wrong (in the funny way) episode where Peter plays the piano amazingly ... but only while he's stinking, fall-down drunk! hehe

I saw that one, it cracks me up! If only it were that way in real life...

The signature is from this plaque that hung in my office (as a manager of one of those go-kart/video game/birthday party places) That job sucked so much. But I'm glad I had it. Those were the days...NOT!

Well in the meantime here is another logic puzzle alla arabia

The grandfather of the reigning Sheikh of Shibam was a muslim faithful to the law and took unto himself five wives. From the information given, can you establish in which order he married the five wives and solve the name of the father of each bride and his occupation?

Clues

1. The Sheikh was already the husband of Muna when he espoused the daughter of Hussein, the camel driver.

2. Yasmin's father was the goatherd, but Salome was not the daughter of Mahmoud and Muna's father was not the grower of coconuts.

3. The tent-maker's daughter became the Sheikh's fifth wife.

4. Salim, who was not the owner of the goats, was the father of the Sheikh's second wife, but the fourth wife was not the daughter of Mahmoud.

5. Fatima, the daughter of Faisal, had precedence over the daughter of Hakim by virtue of her seniority in the harem.

6. Leila was wifer number three.

Important info

Daughter's names: Fatima, Leila, Muna, Salome, Yasmin
Father's names: Faisal, Hakim, Hussein, Mahmoud, Salim
Occupations: Camel driver, coconut grower, goatherd, Sheikh's bodyguard, tent-maker
Possible order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5




I'll give the answers on Wednesday circa 15:00 Madrid Time. :wink:

...still grossed out, but here is an attempt at the puzzle:

Hussein/camel driver/Leila/4

Mahmoud/goat/Yasmin/1

Hakim/tentmaker/Muna/5

Salim/?/Salome/2

Faisal/?/Fatima/4

I can't figure out who is the body guard and who is the coconut. Is the rest of it correct?

I can't figure out who is the body guard and who is the coconut. Is the rest of it correct?


Here we go:

Neither Fatima, the daughter of Faisal (clue 5), nor Muna (Clue 1) was the fifth wife, who was the daughter of the tent-maker (clue 3) and who therefore cannot have been Yasmin, either, since her father was the goatherd (clue 2). Since Leila was wife number three (clue 6), the fifth wife must have been Salome. We know that Muna's father was neither the tent-maker nor the goatherd, nor was he either Hussein, the camel drover (clue 1), or the coconut grower (clue 2); so he must have been the Sheikh's bodyguard. Weknow that Salim was not Fatima's father and, as he was the father of the second wife (clue 4), his daughter was neither Leila nor Salome. He was not the goatherd (clue 4), either, so his daughter was not Yasmin and must have been Muna.

We now know either the name or the occupation of four of the wives' fathers, so Leila must have been the daughter of Hussein, the camel drover, and, by elimination, Faisal, the father of Fatima, must have been the coconut grower. Salome's father was not Mahmoud (clue 2), the goatherd father of Yasmin. Therefore Yasmin was not the Sheikh's fourth wife (clue 4) and must have been his firt, leaving the fourth wife as Fatima, the daughter of Faisal.

Summary:

Wife # 1 Yasmin--daughter of Mahmoud the goatherd
Wife # 2 Muna--daughter of Salim, the Sheikh's bodyguard
Wife # 3 Leila-- daughter of Hussein, the camel driver.
Wife # 4 Fatima--daughter of Faisal. the coconut grower
Wife # 5 Salome--daughter of Hakim, the tent-maker


I wonder what it would be like to have five wives? :wink: :? I'm sure it has its drawbacks. Would the pros out weigh the cons?

Still waiting for Pete. In the meantime, Where in the world?

Clues:

There is one of these in Pennsylvania, but they are not the same.
It has to do with "dwellings and loaves" in its local language.
A significant event has occured here, to which millions if not billions were affected.

Can you guess this place?

(Answers to be given Wednedsay 10th)

The answer to my Where In the World is Bethlehem, West Bank.

There is a town in Pennsylvania that shares the same name but, obviously, one is in the US and the other in the middle east.

The etymology of the name means "House of Bread" or in Arabic "House of Meat"

And you can figure out the last clue :idea:

sorry, J - I didn't see this earlier. Doesn't matter though because this looks like a piece of crinkled brown paper bag.

OK, I'm back. Sorry for the absence. I was in blinding pain for two months. Searing, mind-numbing, so-bad-you-want-to-die kind of pain. I had a running/repetitive-motion injury to my piriformis muscle, which caused muscle spasms around the sciatic nerve. It felt like my leg was being flayed over and over again. Thank God for pain-killers!

Anyway, I'm better, mostly. Down to treating the injury with physical therapy, ibuprofen and just the odd Tylox. The prognosis is good, as long as I don't re-injure it.

Ugh.

Where was I? Right; a game...

I'll have to work on it later, my leg hurts from sitting.

Pete

Bit of a wimp, aren't you Pete !

Seriously though... that sounds real bad. You should not overdo that running thing.

Anyone who can run till something breaks is not a wimp. Stupid, maybe, but definitely not a wimp. :lol:

Although this may have been just as much a piano playing injury. For the last year or so, I've been healing from a shoulder injury, so I have spent almost none of that time sitting at the piano. Since October 2008, as the shoulder had healed, I resumed practice with gusto; my time on the bench increased too quickly, bruising the sciatic nerve, causing otherwise minor muscle spasms, which were acutely exacerbated by running.

Anyhoo, I'm getting less wimpy every day! :wink:

guess someone doesn't like a little tease? I suppose you don't watch James Bond films because of the redundant "1 second left on the clock; Bond makes the escape or stops the bomb from going out, then procedes to make passionate love to a bombshell [pardon the pun] whilst waiting for the Royal Navy to rescue them" scene :P

What do you mean? I am a tease! Or haven't you noticed. :lol: And I love James Bond movies too. Especially Sean Connery. (ugh - now I've got that song "Gold Finger" running through my head)

Pete is late! :evil:

Pretty straight forward. Name the pieces. Some are just fragments. "I can name that tune in"....just one chord?

Hopefully, after I'd made many nervous with my pianistic slash-and-burnery, the first one will elicit feelings of relaxation.

Go ahead, giggle at my note errors, I deserve it. :roll:

(beautiful, you should record the whole sonata and submit it in AR!)

5. Don't know, I smell a scriabinesque aroma.

7. Mozart, Sonata K.570 (Allegretto)



I'm afraid I cannot go further than that. :x

Well, looks like I won't be winning this round. I don't know any of these for sure. :x

No. 1 is so familiar, though. I know I've played it in some random book that I have around here. Now it's driving me nuts.

No. 4 sounds like something Italian.

No. 7 sounds like Mozart.

#2 is either Clementi or Scarlatti, I think it is the latter but to name the exact sonata would be impossible considering how many there are.

#4 is Tchaikovsky's Neopolitan Dance from the AftY (I tried to play this piece but the left hand was a b*** when I tried to add the right hand to it)

For #2, I just need the composer, the name of the piece (not the specific number, just the generic title, such as "prelude" or "sonata") and the key in which it is written. (Hint, the recording stops not at the end, hence the last note is not the tonic.)

Number 4 is right.

You're right on all 5! :lol:

Number 5: I'll post the next few notes and I bet you'll get it right away. This is just one chord from a very long piece for piano and orchestra. (Hint)

Number 3 is right; btw I think I should record it, too. I know the whole sonata but it had many technical errors. I haven't revisited it in about 10 years, so I may give it a go. Thanks.

Number 7 is of course, correct.

The score is:

Monica 5...okay, 0
JG......................1
Alf......................2

Anyone have an idea on #6? It's the opening bars on a composition for Piano and three other instruments.

I think I should get a half a point for getting 'something Italian' for No. 4. :P

No one guessed No. 1 yet? I just know I've heard this and even played it sometime. Sounds like an elegy or consolation. hmmmm....

Is #1 a Schubert composition? ...wait nevermind, it's too short to be composed by Schubert, if it was 20 minutes long, then I would bet it to be.

Ok, I saw your hint on the other forum. No. 1 is a Romance, but still can't remember by whom. I looked through every book I have and can't find it.

Pete, if you don't want to reveal all the answers yet, can you please pm me the answer to this one? It's really driving me crazy now.

Well, all you stated was that it is a Romance. And it is by Faure. Does that not count?

Ok. FYI the title is Romance sans Paroles, Opus 17 Number 3.

So far it's a tie between JG and Alf, tomorrow, I'll post the next few notes of that "Scriabinesque" fragment. You'l recognize it right away, I think. Hint, it's a 20th century American quasi-jazz composition.

I'd have never guessed.

Uh oh - that means it's probably wrong.

:lol:

I really don't have any idea about #5. It could well be Gershwin, Pete's hint seems to point in that direction.
