New Poll, what's up?

New poll on the prequel. Just thought it up, which is basically how those things come about.
Seriously though, was surprised at the results of the poll of the least favorite members. Mal's one of my favorites now that I'm older probably because I can relate to her... (except for the whole being the oldest of 8 kids thing...)... and mildy surprised at how few votes Claudia got.

Anyway, right now I'm reading the Little Sister series from beginning to end. I'm on 52 right now (Karen's Mermaid.) There were a few that I JUST READ when I first haphazardly started to read them before I decided to go in order... so I skipped those.

The most unlikely plot so far? Karen's Tuba. As a MUED major I found myself LAUGHING. I haven't gotten to brass methods, but I seriously doubt anyone in their right mind would have a tuba even available for a 2nd grader to play.,, And what the hell was up with the viola on the instrument cart when the teacher first comes into the classroom? You don't start out on the viola! Especially if you're a little kid!
(Mainly the size of the instrument, I doubt I could even really play a viola, I'm not tall, and I don't have really long arms.. not to mention they read a completely different clef...)

The kids were allowed to take the instruments home before they had even touched them or learned how to properly put them together. (apparently the first lesson was going over notes and stuff) I'm in woodwind methods (and string methods actually) right now. We started the clarinet a few weeks ago. Nancy took the instrument home, figured out how to properly put the thing together, and played on it? For real?

I also find it incredibly hard to believe that they were all able to play Here Comes the Bride.That song has a range of more than just a few notes. Yeah they practiced a lot, and that's all fine and dandy... I still find it hard to believe that after a practice session with Sam they were able to get it almost perfect... with all those instruments. A kid or two? Maybe. The entire class? NOT

Mind you I'd never played a clarinet (or flute for that matter) in my life, and we have to play A Little Nightmusic for our clarinet test... but we're older, music majors (obviously have a substantial background in music) and tend to latch on to things a lot faster than second graders. (I'm still not the best, but I do seem to be having a bit more luck at the clarinet than the least I could produce sound right away.)

Just my rant for the evening :)

What the heck is up with my sudden surge of spammers?

spam spam spam spam spam spam spam. Lovely Spaaaam!

I played clarinet in high school. I think some of my fellow clarinet band geeks even had trouble playing clarinet. (We weren't a very good band....)

Great posts, great blog – but do you ever post explicitly political views?

Please don’t consider this spam, but I think you might like to check out my blog, some of the media and info I post there should be of great interest to you.



If for nothing else, just swing by and have a look...

My parents made me take piano lessons for fourteen years. In junior high, I played alto and baritone saxophones. We started band class in sixth grade. Any younger (i.e. second grade) and I have to question how well the kids would handle that.

Was Karen even physically large enough to handle a tuba?

About the viola...we started instruments in 4th grade in my school district and we had a bunch of people play the viola then. Some even played the cello & bass! Not so farfetched for a 2nd grader to be doing it. :)
