Re: Perfect Christmas Gift for a music lover..

I like this idea, to blend Music and Visual Art. It could be a matter of choosing the "right" song that would generate the more interesting sound wave image. Good Find, angelsighs!

Re: Donald & Hillary

Regardless of your insinuation, it is true I would have given her a chance; it is also true you are not prescient. There is a great deal of difference between blindly supporting a candidate and then refusing to share any disagreements. I voted for a Republican Senator, and the message in a letter I ...

Re: 16th and 17th Century European Religious documents

It has been awhile since I have found a really nice example of Religious Documents for my library, but this was worth the wait. An Unbound Copy - something I have very few examples of, "Titus Flavius Josephus, a Roman Jew who is one of the most famous Historians of that era". He was born in 37-38 AD...

Re: The Walking Dead

It has been quite some time since I've watched this; I cannot help but wonder if they should quit before many more people do not notice the episode is over, or change things very quickly into a new storyline.

Re: Donald & Hillary

You are quite right, Rich; Years could be wasted on such a Thread. So enjoy yourself. I do like to share opinions, but this SITE is so much more interesting for the Music, which matters a great deal more to me; and I REALLY enjoy reading what others have in mind or have heard, and sharing pieces tha...
