I don't understand what I'm looking at... care to elaborate???

Not really.

Batman got on my nerves.  He was really running me amok.

ETA Fine.  It's the classic keyboard tab notation.  I believe it's to that classic tune "Jump," arranged by that guy with the hair, but my reading skills are not what they could be.  It's a classic.  Trust me.  Hold my beer.

Let me explain something to you:  I have commanded this task.  The order stands.  It's a classic performative speech act.

You are merely insubordinate.  I sentence you to ten years in French Guiana.  Or Australia.  Whichever's closest.

I also pronounce you and this ashtray of wet cigarettes husband and ashtray.

It is now done. 

Now type the Wesley Willis!

Execute the order!  Make it so!

Well, I know a magistrate who can maybe get you off the hook this time.

But, as personal favor, which you owe me, because of your sass-mouth, you should probably send me a few kangaroo-scrotum purses.

You see, there's a few ladies I got my eye on who would appreciate that kind of thing. 

Just to be clear, I don't want the raw kangaroo scrotums.  Finished products only, please.

Do you think I keep them as pets??? I just go outside and hack them to bits???

I think the kangaroos would miss their (without wanting to use your terminology) 'equipment'  and would prefer not to be massacred so some stuck up snob lady can have a coin purse.

If I do however decide to take you up on your deal - they'll came as raw as. You want the purses, you're going to have to put some effort into this as well.

Probably not, to both questions.  But I'm pretty sure you know someone who fights one or several kangaroos in exhibition matches.

That'll be fine.  Just the sack is really what I'm after, but if you include the testicles, that could be good eating.  No dong, though.  Can't use it.

I do know know who that's meant to be in the picture being eaten by a shark, but I found it most entertaining.

You definitely brought the fun back... you had to do it with a cat picture though, seriously???

Bob is a wizard of the dark arts.

I think the blonde lady represents the unicorn, and the shark is the lady, from the famous tapestries.

Regardless, someone should be put to the irons. 

All right, fine.  Send me a hundred US dollars and I'll do the Goldberg Aria and the first variation.  I just now figured out how to get an Android phone to be like a real device, using TerMux, not this ridiculous "I touch screen make go fast good app!".  And I will do it as though a cat-shark were eating me.  (No, I can't do the 1st var. as fast and clean as Gould's first recorded version, but I can do it as fast as someone being eaten by a cat-shark.)

/////////////////

ETA Hey, perfect_pitch, I just recently checked out you arrangement of that tango piece "Por una cabeza" well, the Youtube performance of it, anyway.  I used to keep that one in my back pocket, along with Joplin's "Solace," just to have some tunes that are familiar in a more-or-less similar rhythm that people would recognize. 

Not razzing you about dingos or kangaroo scrotum purses, but what do you think a virtuoso (well, maybe more just a grandiose, is more the term) arrangement of "Waltzing Matilda" might be like? 

Of course I know the tune, but I also know the audiences well enough to know that something like Liszt's arrangement of "La Marseillaise" is not going to be that well received.  I've been noticing an uptick of Oz sightseers up here where I'm at recently they're often using the hiking trails and I just wondered how far one can go with such a beloved tune.  I guess most reharms are out, as are modulations.

I could probably do it, but right now I'm learning Rachmaninoff's 3rd Piano Concerto. Wanted to learn it since I was 15 and now I'm going for it.

Yeah, I've seen the score to the concerto.

I just think taping your fingers together, la Don Pullen in jazz, could yield even greater velocity.  Accuracy may suffer, but if you wear a flashy miniskirt and heels, the audience might not notice.

Well, anyway, you'll all be happy to know I tried doing from memory the Goldberg first few.  Sh__.  Go___ned mo____erfu__er. 

Dude, that sucked a)). 

Even grabbing the Peters edition to refresh my memory, that didn't even help much.

They say the toe is the best part.  Modesty prevents me from posting a selfie.

Sort of like a Gb major you read between the lines.  (Incidentally, that's not a bad idea doing, say, the first Goldberg Variation in Gb:  not that it's a devlishly difficult thing, but I have trouble recreating Gould's original tempo on his first studio recording of this.  It's a good idea:  do it by ear/memory, and when memory fails, just read it straight off the staves dropping everything down a half-step.)

I didn't say nothing.
