That is the best part of that entire thing.
There are two sopranos here who do it every year ... they ask me to accompany. They should both be singing at the Met, but they'd rather teach 5th Grade .... go figure. Facepalm

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Thank you for clearing that up. I'm an ignoramus on these matters. Thumbsup

Well, I'm an ignoramus in general, but... moving on.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Well, happy Corpse Cannibalism Eating Week to you too. Go ahead and celebrate your bloody death cult. Maybe if you try some Holy Syrup on the bloody mess instead it would taste better. Drooling

RE: Passover
1 post, no attempt to engage in conversation. Did this fucknut seriously just join an atheist forum to wish a bunch of people --most of who don't have Jewish backgrounds and who don't celebrate Passover-- a happy Passover?

This person must really be lonely and they have crappy conversation skills. That's sad. Sad

RE: Passover
True that, Bucky! But I love the whole piece (and quite a few other Stabat Mater's too. Boccherini's, Sances, Scarlatti's, Tommaso Traetta (love this guy's Antigona , Brunetti's, etc. Vivaldi's is, unsurprisingly, great. As are his motets. And don't get me started on Juditha Triumphans. Pure genius.)





If we're gonna be talking Beethoven, Johnny, the last minuscule non-cynical part in me thinks this is really, truly moving (don't tell anyone I admitted it, though)





(Also, the conductor is very cute Blush )

Ooh, Chas's Joyce is very good Yes

I'm very much into countertenors these days

Well heck sakes, everyone's posting classical stuff. Here's the great, genetically gifted ballet prodigy, Sylvie Guillem. She just retired last year at the age of 50.

Stuff your execrably evil and bloody-minded human-sacrifice-worshipping delusion up the rectum of the Holy Spook, and decamp immediately from My vernal holiday, or I shall sic the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog on your sorry poseur ass.

This is a public service announcement from the Goddess of the Vernal Equinox. All your Easter are belong to Us.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?
