    Riddle Sideways: and Happy New Year
    Adams Rubble: Happy New Year to you too :)
                   --BELL--
    Adams Rubble: it is very cold in real life
    Adams Rubble: brrrrr
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, will try to fix that for you
    Riddle Sideways: ㋡


    Adams Rubble: last night I watched Bizet's opera Pearl Fishers for the first time
    Adams Rubble: overnight I relized that Roy Orbison's Leah is a derivitive work from the famous Pearl Fishers duet
    Riddle Sideways: not sure, think have seen that so long ago
    Adams Rubble: it is another side of Roy Orbison that I did not know
    Adams Rubble bets that Riddle is googling
    Riddle Sideways: caught
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: Googling more tabs for later
    Adams Rubble: which one did you listen to first?
    Riddle Sideways: ha, not listening right now
    Adams Rubble: rhythms different but notes very similar
    Riddle Sideways: just marking them
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: now listening, in background
    Adams Rubble: :)))
    Riddle Sideways: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-v-DZjZ9iY Placido Domingo & Andrea Bocelli - Pearl Fishers duet
    Adams Rubble: like the Pavarotti one better
    Adams Rubble: The one with the late Russian Baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Justin kauffmann is very good too
    Riddle Sideways: funny, that Pavarotti did not come up at top of search
    Riddle Sideways: he is usually the crowd fav
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Riddle Sideways: well, he smiles more then most
    Adams Rubble is now wondering what other orbison songs might be derived from classical works
    Riddle Sideways: nope... think Roy thought them all up himself
    Riddle Sideways: or wrote them from the sound tracks of dreams
    Adams Rubble: leah is a tribute to Bizet I think
    Riddle Sideways: the common cloud all Music is issued from
    Adams Rubble: maybe he did not know :)
    Riddle Sideways: maybe, ... that arguement would surely stand up in court
    Adams Rubble: well that's what I have to contribute from the musical end today
    Adams Rubble: it was good to get a break from my morose thoughts about the new year
    Riddle Sideways: now listening to Leah https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mG_sSxVdfU
    Adams Rubble: yaaay
                   --BELL--
    Riddle Sideways: that one has a bunch of hack musicians sitting in
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: must be on Black on White
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Riddle Sideways: yes
    Adams Rubble: Did you realize the woman in the Pearl Fishers duet is Leila
    Adams Rubble: this is a wonderful version
    Riddle Sideways: thank you, more tabs to read
    Adams Rubble: Please continue to listen to Leah
    Adams Rubble apologizes for new tabs
    Riddle Sideways: ha, don't apologize
    Riddle Sideways: what else would fill this day
    Adams Rubble: :)

    Riddle Sideways: rises early and makes it for wife

    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Riddle Sideways: yes, awwwww
    Riddle Sideways: it was been pointed out that that might be a good practice to get into
    Adams Rubble: some people have automatic coffee machines
    Adams Rubble: have to get up and meditate instead
    Riddle Sideways: or set them up the night before
    Adams Rubble giggles
    Riddle Sideways: remembers staying at a home that had an automatic expresso maker
    Riddle Sideways: they named it Marvin

    Adams Rubble: hmmm
    Riddle Sideways: well, few do ㋡
    Adams Rubble: :)))
    Adams Rubble: maybe they are starting from the beginning
    Riddle Sideways: from some readings, they might be in the middle
    Riddle Sideways: might be starting and ending right in the middle

    Adams Rubble made the mistake of putting on the Pavarotti duet

    Riddle Sideways: we might get the same results
    Riddle Sideways: maybe
    Riddle Sideways: who knows
    Riddle Sideways: it would be interesting
    Adams Rubble: I use two different browsers
    Adams Rubble: not sure if they talk to each other
