Trois Pièces pour flûte seule (1920-21) I. Bergère captive [0:00] II. Jade [2:25] III. Toan-Yan: La fête du double cinq [4:05] A set of three pieces for solo flute in a quasi-Chinese style by French composer Pierre-Octave Ferroud (1900-1936). The composer wrote this note describing the third movement: The Toan-Yan holiday (or the day of Double Five) is celebrated in China on the fifth day of the fifth month - whence its name - and it is dedicated to the commemoration of a certain hero who flung himself into a body of water and drowned rather than submit to military dishonour. The solemnity of the holiday gives way in turn to mystical and fervid dances which symbolize the contrast between peace and war. Later in the movement, the theme marked très libre dans la mesure  is described by the following annotation: This theme is an authentic Chinese melody that is played on the large recorder - each Chinese instrument has a monopoly on certain musical themes, on account of its form, fingering and extent. One must play it in a chanting manner [psalmodier] with extreme simplicity, and without rhythmic precision. Flute: Robert Aitken
Igor Stravinsky Les Cinq Doigts (1920-21) Andantino 00:00 Allegro 00:42 Allegretto 01:49 Larghetto 02:43 Moderato 03:59 Lento 04:49 Vivo 05:39 Pesante 06:13 Peter Hill, piano Picture: Roger Ballen, School Room, 2003 Les Cinq Doigts was written during the winter of 1920-21. Intended for children, the five fingers of the right hand often stay in the same position throughout each piece while the left hand plays a simple accompaniment. Stravinsky 'found it rather amusing, with these very much restricted means, to try to awaken in the child a taste for melodic design in its combinations with a rudimentary accompaniment'. Their beguiling simplicity should not be confused with being simplistic, and they contain passages which it could easily have come from larger works. The fourth piece, Larghetto, is redolent of The Firebird, the sixth, Lento, could have come from Petrushka and the final piece, Pesante, recalls The Rite of Spring. From Music Notes by Chris Dingle
News Broadcast has been researched and recorded by me. First song performed by: Charles Harrison Full Song Title: Pretty Kitty Kelly Recorded in: 1920 Unfortunately there is no information available about Charles Harrison, iIf anyone could fill in the gaps I would be grateful, thank you! ------------------------------ Second song performed by: Billy Jones Full Song Title: Ma! (He's Making Eyes At Me) Recorded in: 1921 William Reese Jones (March 15, 1889 -- November 23, 1940) was a tenor who recorded during the 1920s and 1930s, finding fame as a radio star on The Happiness Boys radio program. Jones worked in such occupations as mining, banking, and blacksmithing before his 1918 recording debut. He recorded with the Cleartone Four, the Crescent Trio, the Harmonizers Quartet and the Premier Quartet, and he performed under a variety of names (Harry Blake, Billy Clarke, Lester George, Duncan Jones, Reese Jones, John Kelley, Dennis O'Malley, William Rees, Victor Roberts, Billy West, William West, and Carlton Williams). After he met Ernie Hare in 1919, they teamed in 1920 when Brunswick executive Gus Haenschen had them sing an accompaniment on a Brunswick Records recording. They went on to do numerous recordings together for Brunswick, Edison, and other companies. They began on radio October 18, 1921 on WJZ (Newark, New Jersey). Sponsored by the chain of Happiness Candy stores, they were heard on The Happiness Boys program beginning August 22, 1923 on New York's WEAF, moving to NBC from a run from 1926 to 1929. As The Happiness Boys , they sang popular tunes, mostly light fare and comic songs, and they joked with one another between numbers. By 1928, they were the highest paid singers in radio, earning $1,250 a week. The partnership ended with Hare's death on March 9, 1939. Jones continued to perform, teaming with Hare's 16-year-old daughter, Marilyn Hare, in 1939-40. He died November 23, 1940. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.

Put a new tank on this little guy, it saved my life in 2015 for a little while, they found a 2 low grade carcinoma in my bladder, so far so good on coming back, still not out of the woods yet
Now THIS is VINTAGE!!!!! This was the restroom I filmed 4 years ago. In the Kodak hall upstairs. This gold mine features 4 urinals with horrible flushes, and 3 silentis toilets! This was the 3rd time I came back after I paid my parking ticket :(. And the microphone was fucked up. I realized it wasn't worth filming these beautiful fixtures. The only things that were replaced was the flushometers.
On the 4th floor. The fixtures are 2 Washbrook urinals, a Madera and a silentis toilet. They flush and sound the same!! 9/27/16
8 urinal and 4 silentis toilets!! These toilets were more powerful than the others I filmed. Two of them swirled!!! The women's restroom would've been SUPER risky if I had went in there!!!! 9/27/16
Here is a fan I picked up at a flea market, for a pretty good deal considering its condition. Enjoy!
Невозможно оценить это полотно, не увидев его собственными глазами, а лучше в полумраке под косыми лучами падающего сверху света ламп в Мистецьком Арсенале. Оформители при правильно настроенном освещении предоставляют зрителю огромное преимущество − лицезреть лица, тела и предметы одежды Пальмовых в полумраке, когда красный и желтые цвета буквально вырываются вперед, пламенеют перед глазами и бросают в дрожь, а более холодные цвета отбрасывают чету Пальмовых назад, чтобы реципиент не погрузился в них полностью, а сумел осознать, что они всего лишь персонажи портрета.
