Hi Ray! This photo is quite major, actually huge, so perhaps that's the reason?? (Size = 2760 px × 1883 px) The bigger photo, the slower to upload.

Cheers, Ippa

Fraaie foto Norrel, erg leuk gezien.

Groeten, Tomas

Hi Ippa! No! I didn't mean Norrels Photo. I am having problems uploading mine and i was just asking if he was having similar problems. My sizes are ok for upload. I just get multible bars showing for uploads. really strange. I am awaiting a reply from Panoramia to see if they can shed some light to it. :-) Ray

Hi there Ray, sorry for interrupting your conversation with Ippa, but turning of your firewall temporarily while uploading might help. :) Tomas

Ritva Astikainen on February 28, 2009

Oh sorry my poor English & understanding Ray! And I am too eager to give advices too ;)) I wish it will turn out for you to work again.

Norrel won't get mad at me, ever :D

Greetings, Ippa

Ippa, you are 10,000 times better in English than I am in Scandinavian, so don't worry.

Ritva Astikainen on February 28, 2009

not1word you are very sweet, thank you!! You made my night :D Ippa

Ah; Peter Schickele AKA P.D.Q. Bach - I did enjoy his humour years ago but he seemed to have had his moment in the sun and then disappeared. Thanks not1note and Ippa for bringing him out of obscurity!

not1word on February 28, 2009

You're right, Conrad, Dr. Schickele is a rather dated commodity, but one that I still enjoy from time to time. I had a teacher in my long ago high school days who first introduced me to him, and have enjoyed the guffaws off and on since then.

On a different note there does seem to be some similarity between Norrel's fine submission and some other efforts that previous great minds have come up with. Not being a musician, I'm not sure if any of these are actually playable, but I know that a musical piece is always top rate when it involves a releasing of the penguins.

Conrad Nay on February 28, 2009

Hey not1link...I examined your suggestions and have determined that your different note is the schematic for my cell phone, some similarity is telling me to look for my own stuff, some other shows the inner workings of the mind of a Japanese Kamikaze pilot, and come up with is the blueprint for the escalator system in one of our downtown malls.

But then, I'm not a musician either.

I don't know why Panoramio like to sabotage me sometimes. This is the link to the one that Goggle wrongly appropriated

It might be that the link is too long for the format here, now that I look at it again. Cut'n'paste this if you get Goggle again.--->

Conrad Nay on February 28, 2009

Ah, the design for an amusement park! (The link worked.)

Thanks not1scale!

not1word on February 28, 2009

My pleasure. In fact, why not just go ahead and jump off the deep end?

That's a cut'n'paster for youse. I'd never heard of these boy-O's before, but they are about the best punk/cover band that I've come across. Of course, I don't come across too terribly many things, but that's OK. I'm thinking that I may be getting myself excused from the audience by putting this up. Ah well...

Conrad Nay on February 28, 2009

That was actually quite good Not1punk! Didn't quite understand the title which suggested that the Bar Mitzvah was ruined - everyone was having a good time!

So you are not banished.

Conrad Nay on February 28, 2009

Just found one for the musically challenged!

not1word on February 28, 2009

I like Norrel's better, as the trees actually populate the bars like notes.

Re: Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies, some of the audience seemed not to know what to do with the "traditional" treatments. I've got to say, O Sole Mio never sounded better! It was fun to see yarmulkes moshing.

Norrel on March 1, 2009

Thank you for the entertaining music, not1word and Conrad. I found out that I love Cro Magnon Skinning Songs a lot!

Sorry to here from your uploading problems, Ray. Ippa is always helpful, but she made it even worse ;>) I'd follow the advice of Tomas, if I were you.

Dank voor jouw comentaar, Tomas. Good to get a comment in my own language, so I don't need to answer in my awkward english.

not1word on March 1, 2009

They are pretty catchy, Norrel.

not1word on March 1, 2009

Conrad, I found out why they call it ruining the bar mitzvah. That vid was a clip from the whole performance, and in a couple of other places, the Gimmie Gimmies sort of did their punkish bit, and got some folks a bit riled up. They did "a better" version of the Nagila Halva, and some of the elders were a bit annoyed, if you will.

Conrad Nay on March 1, 2009

Thanks not1Gimmie for the update!

Also, to follow up on your earlier comment, I really appreciate Ippa, Norrel and others chiming in here using not their mother tongue. You always speak eloquently and if the sometimes words mixed sometimes are, that adds an exotic tone to the note!

(As you can see I butcher my mother tongue so best I don't venture out into another language...)
