:shock: I was only being facetious. But would Robert be open to the challenge? :?

Re: Did anyone else pick up Disney+ Streaming?

Tawm, from the article you quoted (in The Hill): BuzzFeed News noted that a scene from “Fantasia,” however, has been edited out because it depicts a dark-skinned centaur named Sunflower taking care of lighter-skinner centaurs. “Song of the South,” a post-Civil War story of a young white boy who move...

Re: (Disney +) The Mandalorian (Potential Spoilers)

Sorry, Tawm ... I don't have Disney Plus. It's not even available here in (M)Ozzie-land. :(

(I know I can't offer any thoughts - I just didn't want to see you to think nobody cared).

Re: GK2, first impressions ... and ***SPOILERS***

Why not? I don't have his email, though. Do you? :) And hey, I've been performing music - both classical and not - for 15 years. Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Purcell, Verdi, Benjamin Britten, Dvorak - I've done 'em all. Maybe there will be a role in it for me. *crosses fingers* (Hey, I...

Re: GK2, first impressions ... and ***SPOILERS***

Prima donnas like that guy are water off a duck's back. He bothered me at the time; now, not so much. The "motormouth" songs? :lol: These are only a very small part of Gilbert and Sullivan, just one per operetta, and only ever given to the comic baritone soloist. The other soloists, and the chorus, ...

Re: Programing Games

Why do you hate basic, Collector? :? Maybe it's just me - but the first programming language I used was BASIC on ye olde Commodore 64, back in the days when dinosaurs ruled the earth. :P

Re: Summer Daze at Hero-U Kickstarter.

Hmm. I don't know how to email them, and I don't use Discord. Where would I find their email? I looked on their website and can't find it.

Yes, I certainly do own Rogue. I like it very much, and I never had any trouble playing it. (I got it through Steam - maybe that's why?)

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

Visual Basic is pretty simple. :P Mind you, Tawm, it's not really for the kind of games you have in mind ... but I used it to create a pretty smart program that played Tic-Tac-Toe and never lost.

Mind you, this was in the late 90s ... :P

Re: Did anyone else pick up Disney+ Streaming?

Not available where I am ... :?

Besides, I've got far too much to do! I live by myself, so I don't have a lot of spare time - certainly not enough to sit around and watch over 600 programs. :P Heck, I hardly have enough time to watch ONE program a day, and that's usually 20 minutes of the news. :lol:

Re: Summer Daze at Hero-U Kickstarter.

That sucks. I haven't even tried the demo myself. Maybe leave a comment on the Kickstarter comments page and they can get you some tips? Er, do you mean here , MI? It tells me that only backers may leave comments. What is a "backer"? :? Sorry, I'm new to Kickstarter, so I don't know. If it happens,...

Re: GK2, first impressions ... and ***SPOILERS***

Say, since you did light opera, what did you think of the scene where the guy who plays Engelhart begs to the conductor for an extra aria just hours before opening? :D Honestly? The request is obviously ridiculous. An aria - a proper aria - takes hours to write and rehearse, first with the piano an...

Re: Summer Daze at Hero-U Kickstarter.

Well, now that I have finished GK2 ... I'm downloading it to try now! :) Will be back later to share my thoughts ... very excited! I'm as excited as pastry lover who thought the cat had done its business on his muffin but it turned out to be an extra-large blackberry. ;) ****** EDIT ****** Well, poo...

Re: GK2, first impressions ... and ***SPOILERS***

Finally, finally, finally ... after nearly 25 years (since it was released in 1995) ... I finished GK2!!! :D There were some things in GK2 that didn't really make sense. For instance, staging a new Wagner opera in two months? When I was a member of a light opera society, it took longer than that to ...

Re: GK2, first impressions ... and ***SPOILERS***

Thank you, BBP. :) I've read the companion article to GK2 and your article on Wagner. I've performed some of Wagner's choir music (from Parsifal , Meistersinger etc.) and taught myself a little about Wagner, and I agree with you about him: the music is cold and didn't inspire any emotions for me. Ev...
