Musty, old clarinet cases are apparently really interesting to turtles.  Nessie came dashing over and helped me unwrap it.

I remember the 80s...but I also remember the 70s.  I think I liked the 70s better...
They say that if you remember the 60's, you weren't there.
From what I've read/heard, that's probably correct.

LOL, seriously that was the first thing i thought of, of signing up again a couple of times, and logging is as LisaLisa, and then as AndTheCultJam. 
I can tell you were a child of the 80’s like me!

So who's gonna make an arrangement for "Lost in Emotion" in Bb  ???

Don't worry - YouTube is here to bring you up to date:

It's not to my taste, but "That's why they invented horse races.". 

The Clarinet Pages is where we answer the question: "Am I not a Clarinet and a Woodwind?"

Expand your vocabulary, courtesy of Adam Neely:

He talks about the US national anthem and why it's so hard to sing. 

As with others who try to have successful (=people watching) YouTube channels, he will take a position that people will want to argue with.  I don't necessarily agree with his delivery of his opinions, but he does manage to make them engaging, at least for a while.  There are youtubers out there with really boring (to me) channels that have very click-baitish (to me) titles on their videos that ensnared me for a while. 

Bonus: A snippet of Stravinsky's arrangement of the SSB. 


Me?  I'll put this out there: Our Anthem should be "This Land is Your Land", but until then, I will play The Star-Spangled Banner as it is written in front of me. 

Of course, there's always "To Anacreon in Heaven" until then.

I remember the 60's quite well, and what surprises me is how the 60's have changed over the years.
