*ducking head* I like the Brodsky quartet.


Why must you duck your head, Spooks? I love the Brodsky Quartet too. EC and Steve were on TOTP2 last night (you get A&E LBR, we get TOTP2; something's not right there :D ) and they played Still with the Brodskys behind them. Absolutely wonderful. If they're universally detested then that's the first I've heard. The stuff they've done with Bjork has been awsome and I was hoping EC would take them on this tour with him.

I also had trouble downloading North, got to 68% done and then just hung. I haven't tried again yet and so don't know if my code will work again, but as I have the DVD version it's no great loss.

POP: Maybe it's just that I've always felt vibes on the board that so many people hated TJL, I guess I just assumed they might also dislike the Brodskys. Perhaps not true. I don't sit around and listen to classical music all the time, but it has it's place in my life and I find the Brodskys to be very entertaining.

Their website is very nice also: http://www.brodskyquartet.co.uk/

I downloaded it the other day with absolutely no problem, but when I tried to play it . . . my computer tried to commit suicide! A million explorer windows opening and refusing to close. I had to shut the whole thing down.

I havent tried it again yet . . .

I must be one of the few on a Mac, so my code is useless. Let me know if anyone wants it.

I think I've given up on the download. A huge waste of time. GRRRR...

If anyone can email me an MP3 of it, I'd appreciate it, and would be the distributor. Cause we've all bought the damn record and can't get the bonus we paid for.

And my new camera is giving me troubles... crap. When even my beloved technology is betraying me, it's time to hit the tequila.

Boy am I feeling like shit tonight.

Sorry about your camera, Mug. Us shutterbugs need our cameras!

And I downloaded North just fine, by the way. :)

Mug dear, my friday night was shite also. spent it at the office trying to do my homework. i did learn something though. check the measurements given BEFORE you start drafting it up. 'cause the instructor is out to trick you.

hope the camera learns to behave! i get so frustrated when technology fails me.

i can't download it either. tried this afternoon, and it said something like "wrong code". yeah, sure, whatever.

i hope you are feeling better!

Thanks much to you lovely folks. Lots of crap going on for me, but I shouldn't complain, and am doing a bit better. And my camera is getting better (which is to say I'm getting the hang of it...).

WOW, am I late--I just got "North" last night, and I love love love it!

By the way, my code does work, and I have the song "North". It won't copy, though. Sorry. Also, the code is case-sensitive...
