My brother and I were pursued, and I mean it, ruthlessly, by a horsefly. We had to run into the water and then keep diving under as it hovered, ready to sting us.

As a kid, I managed to put a fly into a balloon to study it under high pressure. I got some cheese into the balloon for it to eat.

What do you people think of Kronos Quartet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/21/15 3:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Probably Velveeta. We always had Velveeta around. That's sort of a cheese.

Tried to tune my radio in due to interference, then realized it was your "content"...
  Thu. 5/21/15 4:04pm Dean:

Funny, @regana, there has been a lot of discussion lately on these comment boards of Kronos Quartet. I'm a fan, although I haven't spent much time listening to them in recent years. I loved attending their early concerts, and their recording of John Zorn's "Forbidden Fruit," in particular, really opened my ears to a world of new music. Kind of a fan, too, of their more recent disk with Asha Bosle.
Avatar Thu. 5/21/15 4:06pm V Priceless:

for FMU streamers: add to the fun by running two pop-up players simultaneously! Simulated reverb/delay effect! Woo!
  Thu. 5/21/15 4:07pm Dean:

Yeah, but the Fifth Dimension was a pop vocal group.

Hayden told me some interesting things about Johnny Guitar, one that he felt like an idiot strumming a stringless guitar !!!
  Thu. 5/21/15 4:13pm regana:

Hey Dean, Thanks! I'm not sure what to make of 'em. On a completely different note. I love Satayit Ray and own the Apu trilogy on DVD. One of my favorite movies of all time. So beautiful in so many ways.
  Thu. 5/21/15 4:14pm regana:

Hey Dean, where was the deli? :)
  Thu. 5/21/15 4:15pm regana:

Could one say that the Kronos Quartet is a cover band?
  Thu. 5/21/15 4:17pm regana:

Phil Collins! In space?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/21/15 4:17pm common:

Ha! collins.
  Thu. 5/21/15 4:18pm Dean:

regana, The deli? Well, the new one...

Re: KQ, do explore their discography: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kronos_Quartet_discography

I'd forgotten about a bunch of these. The first record is pretty spectacular and weird for a string quartet at the time. The jazz ones (Monk and Evans) are special, too. Ostertag's "All the Rage" is amazing, given the nature of the project, which scored for s.q. a riot in San Francisco.

A cover band? Not quite. Their early concerts were traditional classical, inasmuch as they'd play Beethoven, Bartok, and we don't call that performing "covers." I see them as an effective force for expanding the repertoire of "serious" music to include pop.

But if they ever cover Phil Collins, I'll vomit.
