Well, kind of horrible but composed in 1789 or so and Mozart is not responsible for the Libretto (though he did agree to participate in the project). The short title, Così Fan Tutte literally means “So do they all”, using the feminine plural to indicate women. It is usually translated into English as “Women are …

I spent way more time than you think in Marching Band. Of course they canceled the 2020 season. Absolutely a fan of the Crusaders, after them the Scouts and Vanguard. You have to understand that as a member you spend 20 hours a week training in addition to your instrumental practice time. Touring is no …

Told you I wasn’t done with these yet. They’re harder than they look if your Youtube queue isn’t primed correctly and it’s a struggle to keep out the right wing bullshit trash anyway. Anyway who’d a thunk Sir Richard Starkey, MBE would turn out to be the safe and sane one. This is about my …

Route 66

This is kind of a House/Cartnoon mashup. I know I’ve done the Depeche Mode Behind the Wheel/Route 66 Mix before as it was one of my DJ partner’s favorites though I can’t recall a single time anyone danced. It’s really quite good. See? What put me in mind of it is this new piece by …
