Tell us something.: Well, I'm not registering; I've been a member since around 2000 or so. But I've been away for a long time. I seem to remember this forum being something about post structuralism. And aliens who are coming to feed us special food. And, you know, Irish music or something like that.

As I write this I am listening to "Too Hot to Handel," a jazz arrangement of Handel's Messiah. Musically it's quite well done, but, well, why tamper with perfection?

Handel is supposed to have heard the Londonderry air (Danny Boy) and to have said that he'd die happy if only he'd written a melody that beautiful.
And now there was no doubt that the trees were really moving - moving in and out through one another as if in a complicated country dance. ('And I suppose,' thought Lucy, 'when trees dance, it must be a very, very country dance indeed.')

C.S. Lewis
