RIP someone or another

Recommended Posts

House of 1,000 Corpses was the first movie Zoe ever went to in theatres (at 6 months old.)

I wound up watching that movie 50-100 times, and definitely appreciated the Captain. RIP, Sid.

RIP Joseph Wilson.  Also admired his desire to do the right thing.  Showed (once again) a very nasty side of politics, with everything he and his wife had to endure....

And in two of my absolute favourite pieces - the finale Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde, and Im Abendrot from Richard Strauss's Four Last Songs, both of which bring me to tears.

RIP Jessye... her Four Last Songs recording/performance was wonderful. Funny, I saw the CSO do the Nielsen 4th earlier this year, paired with Four Last Songs. The soprano on that couldn't hold a candle to Ms. Norman.

I must buy that - the whole idea of Domingo and Norman in Lohengrin is just too awesome.

We were lucky enough to see one of the other three tenors - Jose Carreras - in one of Hampton Court Palace quadrangles, maybe 20 years ago. We had seats in about row four (on a corporate hospitality junket). In my rush to get to our seats, Carole said "did you see who you just shouldered out of the way?" - "er, no" "John Cleese". Oops. He was about ten rows behind us...

That was one hell of a treat. VIP seats dead centre about ten feet from Carreras, with piano accompaniment.
