Watch this, then  :)   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80ZrUI7RNfI

I thought you were going to drop the Dan Akryod Julia Child Skit.  That was classic.

I love that sketch, and apparently so did Child. She used to have a video of it. I found a link if you want to watch it: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7tnc9_the-french-chef_fun

I was reading a biography of her and they had a chapter her OSS career, and she was for the most part at a desk job, but she had very high security clearance and a lot off knowledge as to come very covert operations. I know someone wrote a book about it a bit more deeply, and with a focus on a co-worker/friend who was a spy later on. I heard that a lot of it was embellished, but who knows.

Thanks Janece...
I will definitely check out that episode thanks for the suggestion...
Do you have any other favorites that I may enjoy as well?

I really like Price in the Suspense episode, 'Fugue in C Minor' (http://relicradio.com/otr/2011/06/h326-fugue-in-c-minor-by-suspense/).

Welcome to the boards, Al!

Welcome to the boards, Al!

I have had the hardest time getting through "Fugue in C Minor."  I'm not sure I've ever finished it.  The organ and the woman make the episode very difficult for me to listen to.  I guess I'm going to have to try it again.  People talk about what a good episode it is, so it must have a great pay-off.

That kind of makes me think of watching The Sound of Music without any music.

Kinda like watching to kill a mocking bird without actually killing it just beating the crap out of it.

4,33 is one of my favorite contemporary music pieces.  There was a very good performance of it in July this year in the auditorium I work for, the performer sat down at a table and had breakfast with cereals and an apple, writing something down on a page now and then.  Cool!

Skinner:  ;)

MAC: I just read a book, 1959, that mentioned that piece. It says in the book that the sound of the audience was the actual music, the blurring of reality and art. It kind of makes me think of how people sample regular background noise and piece it together into a song.

Right.       I'm never quite sure whether this kind of work is just a sort of prank or a real thing, but they are fun.
There was one last year - during the soundSCAPE festival I mentioned above - that was a piece for director.  Just the director, no orchestra.  The director was standing with his back to the audience as if he was really conducting the orchestra, with all the moves and everything.  It was a lot of fun, and it became even more so when he turned around and started directing the audience  :D 
The people in the audience made sounds of all kinds trying to follow his directions and laughing all the way through  :)  Did it have any profound meaning as well?  I don't know, but it sure was hilarious, which is something most music never manages to be   :)
