Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Friday Musical Interlude – The Storm – Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony

Posted May 22, 2015 by Anonymous

We’ve look at Beethoven’s 6th before here on a Interlude Friday, but I wanted to highlight what I think is the section of the symphony that is most likely to get me killed while driving. The last two parts in particular.

4. Thunderstorm, Storm: Allegro 5. Shepherds’ song; cheerful and thankful feelings after the storm: Allegretto

The storm in the 6th symphony builds from the violas outward, each new instrumental addition bringing more stress to the musical line ending in a shattering musical climax that simply begs to be air -conducted. Try it, when you hear the timpani (Read more…)

God Beyond Gender: On Peter Wilkes’ A Woman Called God

Posted May 18, 2015 by Anonymous

I wrestle intellectually from time to time with the issue of god and gender. Maybe you do, too. Over time, I’ve grown skeptical about the importance of gender to divinity, as gender seems like a human issue, whereas God, to me, is unfathomably beyond that. Even if gender is “just” a construction, it’s an incredibly […]

NEW HERITAGE MINUTE: Nursing Sisters

Posted May 18, 2015 by Jes

Did you know that they still make Heritage Minutes? There have been five released since 2012, and they just released a sixth about nurses in WWI. As usual, it will make you feel very patriotic.

“Nursing Sisters” was produced by Historica Canada and Calgary-based Corkscrew Media and Stir Films. It stars Canadian actress Siobhán Williams (Hell on Wheels, Black Box, UnReal). The iconic end narration is provided by Molly Parker (House of Cards).

I am still going to say that the James Naismith basketball peach baskets and the “Dr. Penfield, I smell burnt toast.” ones were my all time favorites. I mean, you just can’t beat one of America’s favorite past times and everyone thinking their having a stroke when they smell burnt toast.

XOXO

Theatre: Who Got the Spoils That Night?

Posted May 16, 2015 by Anonymous

We often trace misogyny and sexism in far-reaching media like books and movies, but more short-range events like plays can, unfortunately, fly stealth under this radar. It makes sense. New movies are seen on thousands of screens. New books are sold in countless bookstores and online retailers. But new plays open at one theatre, in […]
