I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Keeping in mind that it's almost always a bad idea to generalize about any music or art, how would you characterize the music you have been playing on this show and how did you get interested in it in the first place? It seems somewhat out of character from your usual interests.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Krys O.:

The area was the Wilno Voivoideship aka The Central Republic of Lithuania. It was all part of the great Polish-Lithuanian Republic back in the 17th-18th centuries though. My dad's baby sister was raised in Belarus and only spoke Russian. When my dad passed nine years ago, I had to ask a friend to translate a letter into Russian to notify her. Two of my uncles were executed in Siberia during WWII too.

The music my dad played was influenced heavily by gypsy and tango styles.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Krys O.:

During the 70s, letters from my aunt and uncle in Belarus would be heavily redacted. Back then any talk of my parents going back there would be quashed because the Soviets would likely claim my father. The 'rents didn't become U.S. citizens until the 1980s.

Mom is still alive at 94, but she has late-state dementia. Her folks were from Central Poland, Kielce Voivodeship.
  2:38pm mic_a:

A rare live yap here. (Thanks always, Bryce & Skeletons.) There's a lot of material about Central Europe in Ben Katchor's odd new (non-comix) book, "The Dairy Restaurant." Its organization is kind of wandering, but the information is vast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Handy Haversack:

Krys O., do you know the poet Paul Celan? I think about his story a lot. His home city was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire just two years before he was born but was part of the Kingdom of Romania. The Red Army invaded in WWII but "repatriated" the German speakers. Then Romania switched allegiance to the Axis and took it over again. They ghettoized and enslaved the Jewish population and later deported to other camps those that survived. When the war ended, Celan's whole family had died in the camps, and his home town was a part of the Soviet Union. Still a cultural center of Ukraine now.

He went to Paris and lived and died there.

My cousin's father is Hungarian Jew who, with his mother, managed to escape prison camp, he was around 12 and managed to charm someone in charge with his drawing abilities, I forget exactly how, but that somehow earned he and his mother a way to escape death.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Krys O.:

@Handy: I hadn't heard of him, but the story sounds very familiar. My father had relatives who emigrated to points across the globe too. Several ended up in Argentina. I have cousins there that speak Spanish and sing the Polish birthday song too.

Celan wrote in German but was very conscious of the atrocities done in the language, and most of his poetry is caught in that struggle.

A poem by Celan was very important in my and Kate's wooing and then was my vows when we ended up having to get married (for insurance reasons).

Also: Thanks, Bryce! What a great show today! Top to bottom and all the creamy middle, too! Thanks so much to you and your Skeletons and everyone.

Krys, if you don’t already know his work, you might enjoy Patrick Leigh Fermor. He was a born irregular who walked across Europe in the 1930s and wrote the experience up later in a trilogy of books. Someone once described him as a combination of Indiana Jones, James Bond and Graham Greene. I found them utterly charming.
