Not to be missed, if you are in the region!

I would consider even flying over just for that.

Now, as for Classical Music Threats, I guess old J Cage has an edge.

he's forgiven, but you are not.
I was going to invite you to my upcoming Solstice bonfire with mead, metal music and roasted boar (and bore) but not sure now ...
You weren't going to invite me, you were waiting for an excuse not to. I know all the classics from the men menu.
what a shame.. I even intended to buy some vegan delights at the local wholesale supermarche.

I rest my case.

P.S. can we still be friends?

Not sure about the script so far, but here is a soundtrack for the film.
The Light - Philip Glass

And now I am heading downstairs for erg hour.
Highly recommended!
I have a soundtrack for that too!

Quinta overtura: allegro, ma non troppo

da, da, da, da ... da, da, da, da .. (da, da, da, da, da)*,  .... da, da, da.

Leo is almost statesman-like here.

You should get a sideline writing obituaries.   Everyone's life should be summarisable in a form shorter than a clerihew.

Since where I come from they had quite relaxed attitude to administrative burdens, for a long time, if asked about my bio, I put just "I was born." That was the only certain thing to me.

I will try an obit in your style

Albert Einstein.

Born. Did some physics.
Escaped to the US from the Nazis.
Everyone thought he was really clever.
Blah blah blah.
Then he died.


Has a leveling feel to it...

You're too sophisticated, erudite and civil for short forms. They need to be loaded with a simple condensed emotion:

Einstein.

Born asshole.
He met Mileva.
Stole her ideas, erased her name from their work.
Died asshole.
May he rot in hell.

You should go for an epic poem.
