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

      I'm having an anxiety attack. How am I supposed to go back to work knowing that they all know my wish to transition? Knowing they were eavesdropping on my conversations with my therapist? What if they try to oust me or worse? I would be lying if I said I wasn't frightened. I'm actually TERRIFIED!!!   Katie

      Hello Frank, Welcome to TransPulse.   I would have to say this. If you feel that you are a male, then that's what you are. A male. I'm aware that the economic situation in Venezuela is not good so it's understandable that you cannot afford a therapist. The next best thing is to talk with us here. We have many members here who can give you advice on how to handle unsupporting parents and how to appear more manly. Feel free to ask questions. I'm sure you'll get answers. If you haven't already, join the chat here. You'll be able to chat one on one with knowledgeable trans men who can give you good advice. Good luck.   MaryEllen

      Hello, I am a 19 years old girl from Venezuela, since I was a little kid I've always liked to dress like a boy and play with boy's toys, I had a girlfriend during my early teenage phase, my parents (religious) got extremely mad with it but till today they haven't brought up the topic again so I assume they forgot about it. My parents tried to force me to be "girly and flirty" multiple times by buying me clothes I disliked until I turned 15 and stopped caring about that, I've always felt more comfortable dressing like a boy or "androgynous" because I dislike dresses, skirts, sandals, adjusted shirts (I don't like looking myself on the mirror and watching my boobies). Lately I have been fantasizing a lot (EVERYDAY) with being a man, even on my sexual fantasies I'm the guy, which made me wonder if I'm actually trans. I have done things like pretending I am a man online when I was younger, I have taken it too far at the point of editing my voice in calls to sound like a guy, at some times I thought I was actually a guy, It's hard to explain with words, I guess when you tell yourself a lie for too long you start believing it. I wish I could contact a gender therapist or something but:  I can't afford it, the economic situation in this country is horrible.  There are not gender therapists in Venezuela, the society is years behind, so even if I could afford it I can't get to one. I wish I could find out if I'm actually trans or I'm just confused (maybe because of my depression), this situation gets me terribly bad, everytime I look in the mirror I mess up with my hair to see how would I look with a short hair (my mom doesn't want me to get a haircut), I see myself as a man, I don't like looking at my sexual parts, I feel they don't belong to me and I would prefer to have a -censored- penis. I came out to my grandma and my best friend but that hasn't helped anything since I can't start doing anything to actually feel better, it's sad having to pour my sorrow on internet but I'm really desperate.

      My first shave with the safety razor went great, by the way! My face has never been smoother! There is still room for improvement, but because it was my first time, I just gave it two with-the-grain passes to get the knack of it. When I feel I've got a good handle on it I'll go cross-grain on the second pass for a closer shave.

      Since I've retired I try to pick up the slack wherever I can!  Ha!

      And here I was thinking that the sleeping in was my task. I'm glad you covered for me, Jani!

      I'm about as liberal as they come, but I have no problem with responsible gun ownership for personal protection for those who choose to do so. It's not something that I personally feel the need for, but I respect those who choose to exercise that right. 
        I do think this must seem a bit strange to our forum friends out side the USA, though. 🙂  
    • Katie_marie
      That’s perfect advice SugarMagnolia! Thanks!
    • SugarMagnolia
      That's so great, Katie!

      I agree with the search idea above.

      I'd also suggest taking it one step further and thinking about what parts of your body to play up, not just hide. That's different for all of us, but it can sometimes be helpful in putting together outfits. Ultimately, you can't hide your body but you can play to your strengths and that will make the process a little more enjoyable. 😀

      For example, I don't have much in the way of curves and would be classified as having a rectangular body shape, but I do have long trim legs and so showing those off appropriately (no short shorts or mini skirts!) is something that I can feel good about even as I work to minimize my shoulders, not draw attention to the size of my feet and provide the illusion of cleavage. 

      I'm not sure how helpful this info is for you, but I wish you luck and joy in finding your style. It can be a lot of fun!

      Julie

      I had the very real experience of a Trans friend telling me that some three of four days before they had been approached by a police officer asking if they knew a <Male Name> shortly after a person we both knew had been badly beaten up, but thankfully had lived without too many lingering problems.  I vaguely remembered a part of our victimized friend's long ago male name  but the person talking to me had never known them as anything other than Trans female.  My unhurt friend  did have information on suspects for the attack and went to the Police department who eventually did get the culprits but that was several months down the line.   SIGH.
