Forum Games / Headline News - A Collection of Crytpic References
« on: August 10, 2018, 03:15:41 PM »
Every so often I like to update the news banner with a reference to a song I like. However I realize not everyone will get the reference so whenever I update the News Feed I'll post the old ones here along with a link to the song in question. There isn't a fixed schedule for when I change the references, so keep an eye out for them, and if you get stumped feel free to ask me on the NSM Discord or just give it a google.

Increasing numbers of protests have one man lamenting that "war is not the answer, for only love can conquer hate." He went on further to say amidst picket lines and picket signs "don't punish me with brutality, talk to me so you can see what's going on."
"What's Going On" from What's Going On (1971) by Marvin Gaye

This is a fun ditty. A few comments:

Dynamic markings for voice parts always go above their staff, this is to avoid collisions with the text. The vocal line is also missing some slur markings, mostly around those held notes.

Based on the range I'm assuming this is best suited for a tenor? If such is the case use a suboctave treble clef for the vocal line. It could also be done with a baritone, but given most of the action is around middle C I'd err on a tenor singing it in this key and range.

Other than that it's a fun song, and if I still sang I might've given it a go. The galloping nature makes it a fun patter song, though I can tell it'll take a lot of work to make sure the text isn't muddy at this tempo.

Morbid curiosity took over one day and I watched Cars 3 (it was available on Netflix). I honestly think it's the best of the trilogy, if only because the story was so much better than the previous two. It also helps that Mater is barely in the movie, because I've always felt he was obnoxious.

Looks like he's just dual monitoring, my setup is pretty similar.

Emulators are always an option, but if you want to use proper hardware I recommend an Elgato to record gameplay with, the original model can record just about every console since NES, while the HD model only records from HDMI. It's what I use in tangent with OBS for the recording software (which is free) because the Elgato program is a bit wonky at times and Audacity for recording commentary. You'll also probably want some sort of video editor which my also need some investment depending on how fancy you want to make it.

Just note recording DS and 3DS gameplay is not easy nor cheap at the moment and emulation for either is either not great or nonexistent.

Music / Re: Get me into classical/piano music

Well if you're looking for specific works I have a few you might want to check out.

Ludwig van Beethoven
Gotta start with the Beethoven Symphonies. All of them are worth a listen, but the big ones are Nos. 3, 5, 6, 7, and 9. I'll just post the fifth for now, as it's pretty much the "quintessential symphony" in my opinion, and probably the best representative of Beethoven's music.
Symphony No. 5 in C Minor

Alexander Borodin
This guy didn't write much, but he was a chemist so I figured it was appropriate since you're studying Ochem.
String Quartet No. 2, special highlights to the third movement "Notturno: Andante"

Johannes Brahms
Brahms wrote a great amount of music, and I believe somebody already mentioned the Hungarian Dances (No. 10 is a personal favorite) but I think, like Beethoven, the symphonies are the way to go. Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, it's basically his love-letter to Beethoven.

Frederic Chopin
Chopin is fundamental if you're building a classical library, though 90% of his music is for the piano alone.
Scherzo No. 2 in B-flat Minor

Claude Debussy
He's been mentioned before, but I'll throw out one of his few orchestral works.
La Mer

Frederick Delius
This guy's a bit of an unknown, and a recent discover for myself, but Dvorak gets all the attention for writing American-inspired music.
Florida Suite, particular mention to the third movement.

Antonin Dvorak
Speaking of which...
Cello Concerto

George Gershwin
Always gotta give it up for my man Gershwin, everything of his is great, but of course...
Rhapsody in Blue

Gustav Holst
Everybody knows The Planets, but I'm gonna include it anyway.
The Planets

Franz Liszt
This list needs some more piano music, and while Liszt isn't a lyrical as Chopin he's just as important for piano music. The Hungarian Rhapsodies are classic (personal favorite is No. 6) but I'll go with...
Piano Sonata in B Minor

Gustav Mahler
This guy combines the scale of a Wagner Opera with the precision of a Beethoven Symphony and is just pure magic.
Symphony No. 2 in C Minor, "Resurrection"

Modest Mussorgsky
Another guy who didn't write much, but with another essential piece.
Pictures at an Exhibition (there is also an orchestral version by Ravel worth checking out)

Sergei Prokofiev
While his "Romeo and Juliet" ballet is probably his most famous work, I'll instead stick with one of his concerti. (Though by all means give at least the second suite a listen.)
Piano Concerto No. 3 in C

Sergei Rachmaninoff
He's come up already, but here he is again.
Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor

Einojuhani Rautavaara
Who? A modern composer, recently deceased (07/27/2016) who's work could use a little more attention, though his work is a bit much at first glance.
Piano Concerto No. 1

Camille Saint-Saëns
Insert French jokes here.
Carnival of the Animals

Maurice Ravel
Another Frenchie who's often overshadowed by Debussy as both were considered "impressionists", but he still wrote great music nonetheless. Bolero gets all the attention, so I'll go with something else.
Concerto for the Left Hand Alone

Ottorino Respighi
Finally have an Italian on this list, wow!
The Pines of Rome

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
Rimsky-Korsakov was probably the most professional amateur composer out there, but that doesn't mean his works are amateur.

Franz Schubert
Schubert was an early disciple of Beethoven, being one of the composer to brigde the gap between the Classicists and the Romantics.
Symphony No. 9 in C

Richard Strauss
No, not Johann, but Richard. Possibly the greatest composer of symphonic poems, he sits somewhere between Wagner and Mahler in terms of scale and emotional depth. He also wrote  a few songs which are absolutely sublime.
Also Sprach Zarathustra

Igor Stravinsky
Best known for causing a riot in Paris. I'd start with this, though.
The Firebird Suite

Pyotr Tchaikovsky
Possibly the most emotional composer out there, but where to begin?
Romeo and Juliet Overture

Giuseppe Verdi
This man defined Opera in the latter half of the 19th century, so it's no surprise that this selection is possibly his most famous excerpt.
Aida - "Gloria all' Egitto, Triumphal March"

Richard Wagner
From Beethoven to Wagner, this list is pretty comprehensive, but not complete without a Wagner opera. Or should I say four "music dramas"?
The Ring Without Words, a musical summary of Wagner's four operas from The Ring Cycle, which is basically all you need to know about Wagner.

So, there's my list of recommendations. Have at it.

Fixed that for you.

Yeah, but equipment costs are not equivalent, it's like saying you need to buy a car in order to drive it, or have a phone to make a phone call. Like, of course you need the console to play video games. The thing is with this you're essentially spending $80 to play it, when if was a standalone product you'd only spend $20, maybe $30.

It may be a new gaming experience, but it's an expansion pack, not a standalone game. Unless you can play it without already owning a previously released game, it's nothing more than new content.
