Re: Hotness of instruments?

Pretty accurate hotness rating, provided that the bassoon, rauschpfeife and heckelphones are of the chart (to the right). The flute deserves its place (until I hear a player that doesn't use way too wide vibrato all the time)

Politicians need money to finance their campaigns, so they need the rich people to be in favor with them.
I think it would be best to ban advertising campaigns. That would make politicians less dependent on money. What good are those hollow promises (written in huge letters) for anyway?

The idea of a small company of oboe makers in Paris supplying oboes for the entire US never sounded convincing anyway :roll:
I once went there, they didn't even have a proper store, the entire business located on a second floor apartment in a block of flats, had to ring a doorbell to get in.

I'd go down with the ship, unless another country switched to the philsophical values that the US professes to have. What values are that? (I'm not from the US) There are different places I'd go depending on my fleeing situation: Off topic: 1) Fleeing from the draft. Canada, most definitely. I am n...

I just can't think of any one european sound/style :) American are all reeds based on Tabuteau's style (well, I'm probably wrong, but I read this in an american reed book, can you tell me something about the Philadelphia school?), but in europe there are some reeds derived directly from shawm/baroqu...

Well, I think many old recordings and all bad players on any reed sound like a duck. But you realize that there are many completely different schools of reeds in Europe. The Viennese (the oboists in the Wienna Philharmonic) and the Dutch (Han de Vries) are totally different from anything in the worl...

Two Books:
Njál's Saga. Over 800 years old, 370 pages and I read it the Old Norse it was originally written in.
A very good and entertaining book, but with over 100 named characters and rather heavy to read.

Probably the worst essay I have written, is on the book I love the most. Is it the same for anyone here? When I really like books it is because of some reason I can't put into words, the same with music. Why reading books for something you can put into words anyway. (The same with music. Music start...

I've read Murakami (and liked him, a lot), but never even heard of Franzen (but that's probably just because he hasn't been translated to my language). I would recommend Never let me go by Kazuo Ishiguro and, particularly if you like the honest and blunt manner of Murakami when writing on relationsh...

Woah! I don't have Word so I can't check #3 but I couldn't make the map and the notepad file changed.

I can't imagine why Microsoft did this, probably to freak out some of the most paranoid.
