[music |Yo-Yo Ma - Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007: I. Prélude]


Since the weekend is reserved for lite posting, I thought I would share a song with you. I was first made aware of this song via the The Soloist. I'm pissed that they bumped the release date for the movie for two reasons:

1. I will have to wait until March 13, 2009 instead of getting to see it on November 21, 2008.
2. It's not coming out during Oscar season, so it will be difficult for Robert Downy, Jr. to get his Best Actor Oscar.

The trailer really pulls my heartstrings. I get the feeling that The Soloist is a movie that I will chock up watching. The only good thing about the new date is that it is at the start of the blockbuster season, so maybe they will trade Oscar eyes for dollars. Hopefully.

Without further adieu, I present to you Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007: I. Prélude performed by Yo-Yo Ma as featured in The Soloist trailer. Enjoy!

I have a burgeoning collection of Yo Yo Ma CD's and this certainly sounds like once which should be added to the mix, though I must admit feeling nothing emotional concerning the viewing of the trailer.

Wow! Am I that much of a sap? Am I drawn to storytelling in general? Is it the case that you are just insensitive? Time will tell as the comments come in and opinions are gathered.

As for the CD, it's a two disc set. I purchased the work (Suite 1) as iTunes would let you break the album up into works. I must confess that I think I wasted money on the work as they only track that I will listen to is the Prelude. Let me know if you want to borrow the work.

Speaking of iTunes, we discussed the Harry Gregson-Williams' score to Deja Vu. You said you'd take a listen, see if you liked it and would let me know something. I know you've been busy, but the jury's still out on that one. Do tell what you think when you can.

Hmm... interesting.

Sorry buddy. Not in the mood. I'll be getting online via high speed internet on Monday if all goes well; so if you still wish me to listen to it send me an e-mail to that effect.

It's amusing that you want me to send you an email reminder but you won't do so when you want me to do something for you.

Are you online?

I wouldn't send you the e-mail about ScaryPete because I wasn't online! :-P You knew that when you told me to send you the e-mail and you also knew I would have to re-start the computer in order to send you said e-mail.

You're an ass; I knew that your screen name was online; but it wouldn't be unusual for your name to be online but you're not there or are there and are watching a movie so I was TRYING to prevent you getting annoyed with me because I IMed you and interrupted your movie.

For the record I despise that avatar.
You always pull it out of your ass whenever it doesn't fit the situation then try to blame someone else for you being lame by saying that they're ragging.

I don't use this avatar when think someone is ragging. I use it when they are bitching.
