A composer/performer of Classical music. Born 1756, died 1791. A musical prodigy, he began to play the keyboard at age 3, and composed his first piece of music at the age of 5. His works are often regarded to be the epitome of the Classical era of music, perhaps because he the most well-known of Classical composers. Some of his most famous works include the Symphony no. 40 and his collection of piano sonatas.
I played Mozart's Sonata no. 12 yesterday for a recital.
Frederic Chopin, composer and performer of Romantic music (though he refused to be affiliated with the Romantic period), born 1810, died 1849. Composed exclusively for the piano, with a few pieces that had other instruments as accompaniment, or songs with piano accompaniment. His works are regarded by many as the epitome of Romantic piano compositions.
That Chopin Prelude was so beautiful that I bawled like a baby.
A character in the video game Final Fantasy VII
. He's a big angry black man with a machine-gun where his right forearm should be. Has limbs bigger than most people's bodies. Likes to swear a lot. Play the game to find out more.
Dude, you better not piss off Barret or you could get the shit beaten out of you.
read (v.) to translate written text into meaningful ideas within one's own mind. People usually read to gain knowledge or to awaken their imagination. Sadly, the act of reading seems to have been "bred out" of the human race. People these days would much rather desensetize themselves with stupid rap noise and violent, pornographic, and otherwise unintelligent forms of media. If you are in junior high and find it hard to read, do yourself a favor and get help. No offense! Reading is a great and powerful thing, and only by fully taking advantage of it can one open his or her mind to the possibilities of his or her own future.
Ranting is fun. Go read a book. No, your porno magazing doesn't count.
The protagonist of the video game Final Fantasy VIII
. Is especially noted for two things, namely, his "lone wolf" personality, and his unique weapon, the gunblade. He starts as a student of a mercenary school, but gets drawn into a conflict beyond imagination. I would go on, but hey, couldn't ruin the WHOLE thing, could I?
Squall Leonheart is one -cold- muthafucka.
An improv show. Can refer either to the British version (hosted by Clive Anderson), or the American version which was based off the British version (hosted by Drew Carey). The show is famous because "everything is made up, and the points don't matter." Comedians Ryan Styles, Colin Mocherie (I probably spelled his name wrong), and Wayne Brady are regulars on the American version, with a rotating 4th cast member. Common 4th-cast-members are Greg Proops, Jeff Davis, Kathy Greenwood, Chip Eston, and Brad Sherwood. They have had special guests on the American version such as Hugh Heffner, Lassie, Whoopie Goldberg, Robin Williams, David Hasselhoff, and more. They stopped making American episodes, which is too bad, because it was an incredibly funny show. Catch it on syndication sometime, you'll laugh your ass off.
My favorite character from Whose Line is Wayne Brady.
A town of about 15,000, located in northern California, in Mendocino County. If you live in Ukiah, you're either an anti-big business "liberal" teenager who thinks they know politics, or a shotgun-toting conservative redneck-type. There isn't a lot to do in Ukiah, but instead of finding something to do, the teens whine and complain that they don't have a mall or a skate park. The high school is pretty nasty up in Ukiah, even though most of the teachers are either funny or good (or sometimes both). They're just trying to teach a bunch of potheads who would rather be somewhere else. Oh, yes, pot. Enter a random backyard in Ukiah, and odds are you'll find marijuana (Ask the owner of the house about it, and he'll/she'll claim it's for "medical" purposes). Ukiah is an interesting place to visit, but don't count on moving there, since no one can afford it.
If you couldn't tell, I'm a native of Ukiah.
Ukiah is "haiku" spelled backwards.
