For years I used to go to the Festival of Animation when it would come to town. And I always cracked up at this one. It's not the best animation or music, but it's a classic.

That's okay...Stravinsky has been booed/overlooked/stepped on before. It takes time to sit back and appreciate something so rich and sublime. It's like a three-layer chocolate fudge cake. You can't wolf it down.

Take a moment and breathe. Appreciate it...let it sink in.

This is not a question or submission page. I'm trying to share something with you.

Dude, I have a kid. I've seen Fantasia a million times and I had it on VHS.

I can reinact the whole Sorcerer's Apprentice scene from memory.

I didn't. I have loud music playing that I don't think it would mesh well with. I'll watch it later, if I remember.

Honestly, I'd never really given Fantasia 2000 much consideration. The original was great, but with most Disney sequels being seventeen pounds of crap in a small, mesh sack, it never really hit the radar.

I saw the title and was thinking of that part in Ninja Scroll where all the blood rained down through the trees on those corpses, but then I saw the OP and it made me feel bad.

I should have known better than to share something personal. That's why I keep to myself, and am frankly a hermit. It backfires everytime. Sorry guys...wrong planet!
My apologies, I did not mean to be flippant. It's just that having a kid sort of turns you off of Disney stuff after watching it non stop for years. And I've seen that version of Fantasia.

Disney did beautiful work but I like a little more whimsy, something like the Snowman. It's not perfect animation but the style helps tell the story.

Enjoy.
That version of Firebird Suite has a bit of sentimental value to me.

Was the last song I ever played in the high school. Was a good group, did a lot of touring, one trip overseas and did a bunch of competitions. The final year, I was the principal player in the group with the Tuba. Used the song twice for closings, first was at a national music festival in Virgina, won that. Second time was the final concert and got a standing O.

During that year, I also was in Jazz band with trumpet, marching band with Sousaphone. Orchestra with Tuba, Brass Quintet with Tuba. Honors band, and at the end of the school year when everyone else went on a cruise to celebrate graduation I went home and went to sleep because I was going to Switzerland the next day with with an orchestra. That was the last time I ever played a tuba. Did one more tour with that orchestra a few years later, this time on trumpet, but wound up not being able to do much, due to still having a busted up hand from a crash on the bike and suffering from a bad respiratory infection.

All sarcasm aside, surely you can't expect to post something as "the best scene of all time" and not expect people to disagree or have their own opinions.

First of all, Court has added to my angst by posting more videos and burying my video even furthur.

Thanks man, geez...We have a ton of "what is your favourite youtube vid" threads, but don't worry. Just **** on mine.


Cbad...you're a cool person. You know I know that. A rare combo of traits in a person. I like you.


But as I said (and you are all very smart and understand english), If people were to criticize the work of art I posted, comment on it or even, for the love of all that is in the cosmos...WATCH IT...or simply skip the thread because they either:

1. Hate Disney

2. Hate Stravinsky

3. Hate Me.


Then that would be fine. Really.







But instaed, it is "post the dumbest thing I can find and **** on Dipper day. And what a bad day it's been. Really.

I'm not asking for pity or willing slaves. Just some dignified , non-political or religious conversation about the three most important things to me: Nature, Art, and Music.


*SIGH*


Jesus Christ I'm disappointed beyond measure for mankind at this point. A similar thing happened today at a music forum (A MUSIC FORUM!). Has the whole world gone mad? I have no one to talk to in a meaningful way. This is crazy.

I'm truly sorry you had a bad day, S. I for one (and I think pretty much everyone else) wasn't trying to be mean. I apologize if my posts were insensitive.

If you really wanted serious discussion on this, might the music area of the lounge been more suitable? I've only been in there a few times, but it seems that's where I'd go for something more substantial about music, film, etc. I kinda take it for granted that we all act like knuckleheads here (foo) - albeit, hopefully in an affectionate way.

I have a proposal. We have other somewhat "serious" threads about photography and artwork, why not start one about music?

From perusing the posts in those two threads, it looks like people post things that they created or find meaningful, and the tone is a bit more respectful rather than silly.

We have quite a few professional and wannabe musicians in this forum, I'm sure you'd find some kindred spirits to communicate with.

So forgive me folks, I will climb back into my hobbit hole. I am made of of deep feelings and it's hard to express myself or read people, so stuff like this just confuses me more than you can imagine.
For what it's worth, on the internet, you're not alone in that. The common belief these days is that Asperger's may account for a lot of the stereotypical "nerds" out there. Hell, I see a lot of myself in the descriptions of Asperger's, but I've taken just enough psychology classes to know not to self-diagnose.
