Very good, Scott! I was not thinking of that; what I had in mind was Comedy of Airs. But I like yours better!

Does this mean that I should put away my polyester leisure suits and platform shoes.
Is the 'fro out?
I still want to go to Studio 54.
Shall I leave my bell bottoms in the closet along with my wide white belt and white corfam shoes?

Oh, its so hard to be hip... (don't anyone finish that.)

I still have platform shoes, but that's because they are back in fashion (in womens shoes). I have a lot of business suits, probably they are polyester too - I've never read the tags.
Sorry, no more wide white belts, but bell-bottoms are back in again too, sort of. No fros, though, and I've never been to Studio 54, but I've watched Saturday Night Fever a bunch of times. Does that count? And what the heck are "white corfam shoes"?

Corfam was a plastic material used in the '60s and '70s that didn't need polishing. It was a sort of "faux patent leather".

If I were to wear the platforms (I did wear them in the early and mid '70s) I would either fall or get a nose bleed.

To be honest, I have known that the '70s have become the retro-chic of this generation. The choir director that I work with at the school brought in the jacket to a polyester leisure suit (he's 25 so it could not have started out as his). That was scary. But I have seen the white belts lately as well as wide ties in full windsor knots (which are huge on a wide tie) bigger shirt collars and flared / bell bottom pants. I bought a pair of "boot cut" jeans a few weeks ago. That used to mean that the leg was wider to fit over the boots. I got them home and they were just short of bell bottoms (OMG).

Of course my theme song for a while has been "I was retro, when retro was brand new" (sung to the tune of "I was country when country wasn't cool").

This whole thing is moot.

But I sense a quoting contest in the making Let's see what the limit is in this version of PhpBB :)


I'll ponder this as I drink my vermouth,
Served to me by a woman named Ruth!


And this whole thing is really uncouth.

Just received a cute quote:


Karl Barth's surmise: That while the angels may play only Bach in praising God, among themselves they play Mozart.

I have a lovely framed caligraphied parchment that claims the text to be "from a German Opera House" that says:

Bach gave us God's words
Mozart gave us God's laughter
Beethoven gave us God's fire
God gave us music that we could pray without words


Does anybody know if there is any truth to the claim of origin?

That's a nice one too. But all links for that quote point to the same German opera house, wherever that is....?

Having recently read about the pianist Ruth Laredo, Who was a good friend of my friend the late Leon Kirchner, I could not resist coming up with the following:

RUTH LAREDO

The lovely pianist Ruth,
Whose playing revealed the truth,
Of composers both great
And composers both small,
She really did justice to all!
