The European project I've been working on for Music Monday is hung up in production. It's been a bear, actually. So I will post it when it develops into something worth presenting. Right now it's crap.
I was digging through the archives and came across a piece that I thought would tie in rather nicely with not only Music Monday, but also my ambition to take an English course. Also, probably more to the liking of Anvilcloud and Granny than the rock medley of a few posts back.
If you've been reading the past few scattered posts about my application to the U., you know I've had a whole mix of experiences. Everything from a guiding hand, to making new connections with people in the right places, to various degrees (pun intended) of the ever-present beurocratic runaround to an office closure while on the brink of forward motion! (This, folks, is what is known as a run-on sentence. Useful if one wishes to jam lots of little bits between a capital letter and a period. And speaking of punctuation, more on this later in the music section!)
Today I marched into the University of Calgary and submitted my application, transcrips and my money only to discover I was too EARLY to register for the course! What I could and did do today, however, was pay the $135.00 application fee and got myself into the system which will speed up the process on August 15 when I can actually register for the course in question, English 240.
Now, on with the music.
The performer of note today is none other than Victor Borge. The music piece is A MOTZART OPERA BY BORGE - a bit of a spoof on operas in general, so even if you're not a fan of the format, give it a listen - you might get a chuckle.
In keeping with the English theme of this post, here is a link to PHONETIC PUNCTUATION - also by Borge. Cool stuff if you're into periods, commas, semi-colons, dashes and exclamation marks!
