Rachmaninov plays Rachmaninov - Prelude in C Sharp Minor Op. 3 No.2

from a comment on youtube : "Have any of you heard the story that was written about this piece? After it was written, someone gave it an accompanying story. A man being buried alive. Can't you hear the church bells at the beginning? The somber mood is so well portrayed I can almost picture people standing around a casket all dressed in black. The middle part: waking up underground. Frantic. Clawing your way through earth attempting to reach the surface. All to die just before you reach the top and escape"...

Enjoy !

Love,

Jenny

P.S. my father was playing it when I was young... I was a little melancholic and remembered...

I do not know why... It' s gone Gabe... Maybe because I did put an extract form a text... from a forbidden source...

Anyway...

So I going to tel the story myself... This songs depicts a funeral, imagine in autumn... And then in the middle of the piece, the persons wake-up in his coffin... and realize that he has been burried alive... and it goes until his last breath...

I'ts from Rachmaninov

(Rachmaninoff Prelude in c# minor Op. 3, No.2 )

... My father told me that story when I was young as he was playing it... I remembered today, thinking of himmm

So here is another one... he played... Another souvenir...

Chopin Nocturne Op.9 No.2

Enjoy !

Love to you,

Jenny

I cannot tell you how much I love Chopin! ^_^ When one of my teacher first introduced me to his compositions back in high school, they told me "Hundreds of pianists can play Chopin pieces ; a handful of them can actually play them right." (He REALLY loved Chopin.) I still get a kick out of the Muppets version of Polonaise. Haha

Common Reaction and Nocturnes by Uh Huh Her. Nocturnes is their latest and a great second effort. Their sound is bigger, splashier more confident and assertive. They're also a couple do that's nice as well.

The hard to find, Red Tape by the Atlanta Rhythm Section. Beatles, Past Masters II.

Still strolling through the past -Queen still seems to cover most of my moods and figures large in my playlist.

Which is kind of eclectic including The Highwaymen, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles through Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, The Men They Couldn't Hang, Bon Jovi and Queen with some Ozzy and Theory of A Deadman thrown in for seasoning :D. A newer Ozzy at that. I play them all every day. And more. I kind of like everything except a lot of heavy metal. My Ozzy stuff is his ballads.

Freddy Mercury's death was a huge blow to rock music. He was a pure genius. How Paul Rodgers could ever front Queen is beyond me but Paul was Freddy's first rock idol, or rather Free. Not an Adam Lambert fan but he was a good fit for Queen. Shame the deal fell through. Brian May is a guitar god.

I used to listen to Yes and particularly to the piano work of Rick Wakeman, pure genius. My favorite Yes album was Tales from Topographic Oceans. I've still got a vinyl album of that. I should get it on disk now.

I was listening Deliberately Limited Preliminary Prelude Period In Z when I started typing this, but the theme is now over so I'm re-writing my post to be more accurate.

To simplify, my media player has been shuffling through my entire collection of Helloween albums for a few days. I normally put my entire power metal collection in there, but lately I dunno why I just want to listen Helloween.

I guess that's a bit weird. But I just don't care :P

      Not sure if I’m in the right section or not, but it’s hair-relayed, so I’m hoping do.   Has anyone noticed hair loss after starting spiro? I’ve been on the spiro/estradiol train for almost a month and I’ve noticed an increase in hairs making an “exit” from my head area.   I have debilitating OCD, and sometimes I tend to use a wet wipe, well, almost every where. After a quick couple of passes on my head (OCD sucks, I assure you) I’ve noticed there are hairs in the wet wipe afterward.    I don’t recall seeing this before I started HRT...and my OCD has been at its present level for 3 years.

      Well today...... did not help matters. Minor fender bender at the end of my route and a day full of people making “jokes”.  The really funny ones that involve walking up behind armed security and screaming “give me the f’n money” and lets “pretend like we are going g to grab the money bag and run away”.    To try and look on the bright side, I managed to maneuver to where the other car hit the front of my truck instead of the drivers door. And no one was hurt.    Im going to bed now, hopefully tomorrow will be better.

      Recently I've been following a YouTuber who detransitioned after about a year and a half.  I wonder if anyone knows what was the longest a person had been transitioned for before realizing that they were better off as their birth gender? I imagine it would only take a year or two to come to this conclusion. But has anyone ever been transitioned for, say, 5 or even 10 years or more, before deciding to go back?

      I am in no way a tech person. I had several diff personalities website for my previous occupation, but once i quit that business I deleted all those acc. Frankly don't care if they re appear via some kind off black mail scam either. I have and always had only one FB acc filled only with the people that close to me. Thus when I was ready to tell everyone I just pull the band-aid off and came out on FB. I most say, I had 200 hundred close family and friend before i can out and now its down to like 150. I got some message saying how ungodly it was and a few older relatives that said they did not understand and a couple of what i thought where friend calling me a -awesome person-. But hey it would of taken me weeks and half of my sanity to call or em everyone. So i am happy with my choice.'  Good luck and as always, be safe, BE Proud and KICK ASS

      I came out as non-binary six months after retiring as a senior software engineer, but I can say that at my last company, for whom I worked 11 years, there were two MtF trans engineers.  They held their heads high, were proud but not loud (at least in the workplace), kept their private life private (as was/is entirely appropriate), worked hard, and were treated as equals by co-workers. So, yay!   With all the stress of deadlines, the need to continually keep learning in a fast-changing field, and constant peer review of your code, software engineers are generally very busy, smart cookies, but still are quite varied in their personalities and character.  It was kind of a bell curve, with a few who I wanted nothing to do with, most competent, and a few who were outstanding in many traits (not just coding).   A vital topic is:  how supportive is your company of trans and gender non-conforming people?  Do they quickly put a stop to discriminatory behavior by employees?  Do they provide gender-neutral restrooms?  Do they practice what HR preaches?   If the answers to the above questions are all Yes, then you've found a good place to work and an environment where you'll most likely be allowed to grow in your career.  However, I'll acknowledge that it can be hard to know the actual situation for some of these, as individual issues and cases usually remain private and are not discussed openly.   Regarding inclusivity, you're quite right -- females often must work harder to be heard at meetings, have their ideas championed by a manager, and so on.  It can be lonely!  Not long before I retired, I worked with a (brilliant, junior-grade) female engineer for several years who was based in India, and we developed a good working relationship and talked about our personal lives. She cried during one conversation, saying that I was one of the few engineers who was actually kind to her.  I was saddened to learn that that was the case.  I've certainly known plenty of engineers both male and female who, after years of internalizing the stresses, cash out and find a different career.  For me, it was a very interesting career, but one not without plenty of bumps along the way...and that's outside of gender issues.   Best of luck, Amber!   Hugs,   Astrid

      My general doctor refused to see me since this is related to a surgery and could be considered a complication of it. Got ahold of the nurse of my surgeon and she said it looks like an allergic reaction to the bio oil. It's been 7 days since I used the oil originally and started having the reaction, stopped having fluid drainage the other day and now am left with the worst hives I have ever had. From my shoulder, along the sides of my chest, and down to right above my belly button itches like hell. There is no infection but my body sure as hell did not like something in the bio oil.

      I kept my old accounts and came out publicly on Instagram. I lost access to my facebook account a few years ago so that one won't be changed, but I feel like that'd be the most dangerous one to transition on because it's a lot more conservative than other platforms. Maybe it just seems that way because a lot of my family are vocal bigots, but I also feel like with how you can see what friends like you are more likely to be exposed to transphobes. I don't plan on making a new account because I was so tired of how gross my family is and never got on before they got political anyways. However, my experience with other platforms is generally support. A few people unfollowed me, but I'll take that over trolls any day. It's probably also different based on age group. I may make a coming out video for my parents to post on facebook for family, but I don't if it's even worth it.   The good thing about social media is you can block people. You may have a lot of people to block on facebook keeping your old account, but I feel like that could happen with a new account too. Facebook is just scary to me.
