BBC, Decca, EMI Abbey road all have used Tannoy la!  
Here is extract from the link above.  
The Tannoy series of Dual Concentric™ speakers and enclosures have impressed many music industry luminaries over the years, like Arthur Haddy, the chief recording engineer at Decca, who heard the Monitor Silver (successor to the Monitor Black) in 1951 and ordered it for the Decca studios in London. Dr. Dutton of EMI visited Tannoy in 1951 and heard the Monitor Silvers installed in the GRF enclosures, and was so impressed he ordered the combination for EMI’s Abbey Road recording studios. Kingsway Hall, the BBC, and many others, followed their example and ordered Tannoy Dual Concentrics™ for their recording work. Tannoy’s became so prolific in the music industry that there’s a very good chance that those beloved recordings you’ve treasured all your life were originally mastered using Tannoy Dual Concentric™ monitor speakers, and they will still be at their most authentic best when played back over Tannoys today.

出 埃 及 記 32  
1 百 姓 見 摩 西 遲 延 不 下 山 , 就 大 家 聚 集 到 亞 倫 那 裡 , 對 他 說 : 起 來 ! 為 我 們 做 神 像 , 可 以 在 我 們 前 面 引 路 ; 因 為 領 我 們 出 埃 及 地 的 那 個 摩 西 , 我 們 不 知 道 他 遭 了 甚 麼 事 。  
2 亞 倫 對 他 們 說 : 你 們 去 摘 下 你 們 妻 子 、 兒 女 耳 上 的 金 環 , 拿 來 給 我 。  
3 百 姓 就 都 摘 下 他 們 耳 上 的 金 環 , 拿 來 給 亞 倫 。  
4 亞 倫 從 他 們 手 裡 接 過 來 , 鑄 了 一 隻 牛 犢 , 用 雕 刻 的 器 具 做 成 。 他 們 就 說 : 以 色 列 阿 , 這 是 領 你 出 埃 及 地 的 神 。  
5 亞 倫 看 見 , 就 在 牛 犢 面 前 築 壇 , 且 宣 告 說 : 明 日 要 向 耶 和 華 守 節 。  
6 次 日 清 早 , 百 姓 起 來 獻 燔 祭 和 平 安 祭 , 就 坐 下 吃 喝 , 起 來 玩 耍 。  
7 耶 和 華 吩 咐 摩 西 說 : 下 去 罷 , 因 為 你 的 百 姓 , 就 是 你 從 埃 及 地 領 出 來 的 , 已 經 敗 壞 了 。  
8 他 們 快 快 偏 離 了 我 所 吩 咐 的 道 , 為 自 己 鑄 了 一 隻 牛 犢 , 向 他 下 拜 獻 祭 , 說 : 以 色 列 阿 , 這 就 是 領 你 出 埃 及 地 的 神 。  
9 耶 和 華 對 摩 西 說 : 我 看 這 百 姓 真 是 硬 著 頸 項 的 百 姓 。  
10 你 且 由 著 我 , 我 要 向 他 們 發 烈 怒 , 將 他 們 滅 絕 , 使 你 的 後 裔 成 為 大 國 。  
11 摩 西 便 懇 求 耶 和 華 ─ 他 的 神 說 : 耶 和 華 阿 , 你 為 甚 麼 向 你 的 百 姓 發 烈 怒 呢 ? 這 百 姓 是 你 用 大 力 和 大 能 的 手 從 埃 及 地 領 出 來 的 。  
12 為 甚 麼 使 埃 及 人 議 論 說 他 領 他 們 出 去 , 是 要 降 禍 與 他 們 , 把 他 們 殺 在 山 中 , 將 他 們 從 地 上 除 滅 ? 求 你 轉 意 , 不 發 你 的 烈 怒 , 後 悔 , 不 降 禍 與 你 的 百 姓 。  
13 求 你 記 念 你 的 僕 人 亞 伯 拉 罕 、 以 撒 、 以 色 列 。 你 曾 指 著 自 己 起 誓 說 : 我 必 使 你 們 的 後 裔 像 天 上 的 星 那 樣 多 , 並 且 我 所 應 許 的 這 全 地 , 必 給 你 們 的 後 裔 , 他 們 要 永 遠 承 受 為 業 。  
14 於 是 耶 和 華 後 悔 , 不 把 所 說 的 禍 降 與 他 的 百 姓 。  
15 摩 西 轉 身 下 山 , 手 裡 拿 著 兩 塊 法 版 。 這 版 是 兩 面 寫 的 , 這 面 那 面 都 有 字 ,  
16 是 神 的 工 作 , 字 是 神 寫 的 , 刻 在 版 上 。  
17 約 書 亞 一 聽 見 百 姓 呼 喊 的 聲 音 , 就 對 摩 西 說 : 在 營 裡 有 爭 戰 的 聲 音 。  
18 摩 西 說 : 這 不 是 人 打 勝 仗 的 聲 音 , 也 不 是 人 打 敗 仗 的 聲 音 , 我 所 聽 見 的 乃 是 人 歌 唱 的 聲 音 。  
19 摩 西 挨 近 營 前 就 看 見 牛 犢 , 又 看 見 人 跳 舞 , 便 發 烈 怒 , 把 兩 塊 版 扔 在 山 下 摔 碎 了 ,  
20 又 將 他 們 所 鑄 的 牛 犢 用 火 焚 燒 , 磨 得 粉 碎 , 撒 在 水 面 上 , 叫 以 色 列 人 喝 。  
21 摩 西 對 亞 倫 說 : 這 百 姓 向 你 做 了 甚 麼 ? 你 竟 使 他 們 陷 在 大 罪 裡 !  
22 亞 倫 說 : 求 我 主 不 要 發 烈 怒 。 這 百 姓 專 於 作 惡 , 是 你 知 道 的 。  
23 他 們 對 我 說 : 你 為 我 們 做 神 像 , 可 以 在 我 們 前 面 引 路 ; 因 為 領 我 們 出 埃 及 地 的 那 個 摩 西 , 我 們 不 知 道 他 遭 了 甚 麼 事 。  
24 我 對 他 們 說 : 凡 有 金 環 的 可 以 摘 下 來 , 他 們 就 給 了 我 。 我 把 金 環 扔 在 火 中 , 這 牛 犢 便 出 來 了 。  
25 摩 西 見 百 姓 放 肆 ( 亞 倫 縱 容 他 們 , 使 他 們 在 仇 敵 中 間 被 譏 刺 ) ,  
26 就 站 在 營 門 中 , 說 : 凡 屬 耶 和 華 的 , 都 要 到 我 這 裡 來 ! 於 是 利 未 的 子 孫 都 到 他 那 裡 聚 集 。  
27 他 對 他 們 說 : 耶 和 華 ─ 以 色 列 的 神 這 樣 說 : 你 們 各 人 把 刀 跨 在 腰 間 , 在 營 中 往 來 , 從 這 門 到 那 門 , 各 人 殺 他 的 弟 兄 與 同 伴 並 鄰 舍 。  
28 利 未 的 子 孫 照 摩 西 的 話 行 了 。 那 一 天 百 姓 中 被 殺 的 約 有 三 千 。  
29 摩 西 說 : 今 天 你 們 要 自 潔 , 歸 耶 和 華 為 聖 , 各 人 攻 擊 他 的 兒 子 和 弟 兄 , 使 耶 和 華 賜 福 與 你 們 。  
30 到 了 第 二 天 , 摩 西 對 百 姓 說 : 你 們 犯 了 大 罪 。 我 如 今 要 上 耶 和 華 那 裡 去 , 或 者 可 以 為 你 們 贖 罪 。  
31 摩 西 回 到 耶 和 華 那 裡 , 說 : 唉 ! 這 百 姓 犯 了 大 罪 , 為 自 己 做 了 金 像 。  
32 倘 或 你 肯 赦 免 他 們 的 罪 … … 不 然 , 求 你 從 你 所 寫 的 冊 上 塗 抹 我 的 名 。  
33 耶 和 華 對 摩 西 說 : 誰 得 罪 我 , 我 就 從 我 的 冊 上 塗 抹 誰 的 名 。  
34 現 在 你 去 領 這 百 姓 , 往 我 所 告 訴 你 的 地 方 去 , 我 的 使 者 必 在 你 前 面 引 路 ; 只 是 到 我 追 討 的 日 子 , 我 必 追 討 他 們 的 罪 。  
35 耶 和 華 殺 百 姓 的 緣 故 是 因 他 們 同 亞 倫 做 了 牛 犢 。  
Exodus 32  
The Golden Calf  
1 When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods[a] who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.”  
2 Aaron answered them, “Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me.” 3 So all the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron. 4 He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, “These are your gods,[b] Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.”  
5 When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of the calf and announced, “Tomorrow there will be a festival to the Lord.” 6 So the next day the people rose early and sacrificed burnt offerings and presented fellowship offerings. Afterward they sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.  
7 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go down, because your people, whom you brought up out of Egypt, have become corrupt. 8 They have been quick to turn away from what I commanded them and have made themselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. They have bowed down to it and sacrificed to it and have said, ‘These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.’  
9 “I have seen these people,” the Lord said to Moses, “and they are a stiff-necked people. 10 Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation.”  
11 But Moses sought the favor of the Lord his God. “Lord,” he said, “why should your anger burn against your people, whom you brought out of Egypt with great power and a mighty hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians say, ‘It was with evil intent that he brought them out, to kill them in the mountains and to wipe them off the face of the earth’? Turn from your fierce anger; relent and do not bring disaster on your people. 13 Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance forever.’” 14 Then the Lord relented and did not bring on his people the disaster he had threatened.  
15 Moses turned and went down the mountain with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands. They were inscribed on both sides, front and back. 16 The tablets were the work of God; the writing was the writing of God, engraved on the tablets.  
17 When Joshua heard the noise of the people shouting, he said to Moses, “There is the sound of war in the camp.”  
18 Moses replied:  
“It is not the sound of victory,  
it is not the sound of defeat;  
it is the sound of singing that I hear.”  
19 When Moses approached the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, his anger burned and he threw the tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of the mountain. 20 And he took the calf the people had made and burned it in the fire; then he ground it to powder, scattered it on the water and made the Israelites drink it.  
21 He said to Aaron, “What did these people do to you, that you led them into such great sin?”  
22 “Do not be angry, my lord,” Aaron answered. “You know how prone these people are to evil. 23 They said to me, ‘Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.’ 24 So I told them, ‘Whoever has any gold jewelry, take it off.’ Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!”  
25 Moses saw that the people were running wild and that Aaron had let them get out of control and so become a laughingstock to their enemies. 26 So he stood at the entrance to the camp and said, “Whoever is for the Lord, come to me.” And all the Levites rallied to him.  
27 Then he said to them, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Each man strap a sword to his side. Go back and forth through the camp from one end to the other, each killing his brother and friend and neighbor.’” 28 The Levites did as Moses commanded, and that day about three thousand of the people died. 29 Then Moses said, “You have been set apart to the Lord today, for you were against your own sons and brothers, and he has blessed you this day.”  
30 The next day Moses said to the people, “You have committed a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.”  
31 So Moses went back to the Lord and said, “Oh, what a great sin these people have committed! They have made themselves gods of gold. 32 But now, please forgive their sin—but if not, then blot me out of the book you have written.”  
33 The Lord replied to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book. 34 Now go, lead the people to the place I spoke of, and my angel will go before you. However, when the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin.”  
35 And the Lord struck the people with a plague because of what they did with the calf Aaron had made.

Notes of Sorrow in Changes at Steinway  
July 12, 2013  
First, Steinway & Sons closed on the sale of its Beaux-Arts Manhattan building on West 57th Street, where the likes of Sergei Rachmaninoff and Vladimir Horowitz once practiced. Three days later, it announced that it was planning to sell the whole company to a private-equity firm that owns more than 15 other medium-size manufacturers, making everything from windshield wipers to sewing machines to coffins.  
For pianists who obsess about all things Steinway — is a brand-new Steinway as good as one from the 1920s, and are those made in Germany preferable to those made in New York? — the developments had the force of a one-two punch. Pianists cherish memories of the first time they set foot in the building and its famous basement, where generations of professional pianists have chosen the Steinways they played at concerts and recording sessions.  
They also worry that new owners could meddle with Steinway’s time-honored and time-consuming manufacturing methods. Steinway spends almost a year building each grand piano, and pianists fret that an assembly line speedup at the company’s two factories would spoil what they prize: the delicacy of a Steinway’s touch, the colorations of its sound.  
“There’s concern any time there’s a shift,” the pianist Gary Graffman said. “There’s no way of my knowing: will they take as much care with each piano as they have in the past?”  
It is a question that has reverberated through the music world since the $438 million deal for the company was announced last week. The offer, which came from the private equity firm Kohlberg & Company, would take Steinway private. It has been traded under the stock symbol LVB, for Ludwig van Beethoven, since Steinway went public in 1996.  
Steinway is now 13 days into a 45-day “go-shop” period, during which it can consider other bids, and at least one portfolio manager whose firm has a stake in Steinway has said the price is too low. Shares of Steinway closed at $36.18 on Friday, $1.18 above Kohlberg’s $35-a-share offer.  
Kohlberg is “not contemplating any changes to any of the manufacturing operations,” said a Kohlberg investment partner, Christopher W. Anderson, adding that there had been no discussion of closing or moving the factories in Astoria, Queens, and Hamburg, Germany. He would not comment on whether Steinway’s top management would remain after the takeover. (Kohlberg’s chairman, James A. Kohlberg, has been a director of The New York Times Company since 2008.)  
Beyond the balance sheet, Mr. Anderson, 38, has an interest in the company’s products. “I grew up playing on a Steinway,” he said in an interview this week: an upright that once belonged to his great-grandmother. And on Friday, he posted a letter online to Steinway’s dealers in which he said one of Kohlberg’s “main goals for Steinway” was to “preserve and support everything that makes a Steinway piano special.” He also said that by going private, Steinway would be “free from the short-term financial constraints of publicly-traded companies” and would have more latitude to “plan and invest with a long-term perspective.”  
The deal would give Steinway its fifth set of owners. In 1972, the Steinway family — descendants of the immigrant instrument maker who started the company in 1853 — sold it to CBS. That marriage eventually soured, and in the 1980s, Steinway was sold to an investment group from Boston. Steinway changed hands again in the 1990s, when it was bought by what was then Selmer Industries, a band-instrument manufacturer with plants in the Midwest and South. The combined company was led by two investment bankers who had controlled Selmer, Kyle R. Kirkland and Dana D. Messina.  
Mr. Messina served as chief executive until 2011, stepping down after he and John M. Stoner Jr., the president of the band-instrument division, made a bid to buy everything but the company’s piano operations. Steinway began a review of strategic alternatives that ended last December, when it turned down the Stoner-Messina offer and said the company was not for sale. Then came the overture from Kohlberg.  
Under Mr. Messina’s replacement — Michael T. Sweeney, a former president of Starbucks in Britain who is chairman of the holding company for The Minneapolis Star-Tribune — Steinway’s financial picture brightened. The company posted a profit of $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2013, up from $590,000 in the first quarter of 2012. Piano sales rose 2.9 percent worldwide.  
To keep pace with orders in Europe and Asia, Steinway has increased its work force by almost 20 percent in the last year at the Hamburg plant, and Mr. Sweeney said that leaving either New York or Hamburg “would be pushing the self-destruct button for an investor.”  
He said the building on 57th Street was another matter. He called it old and forbidding — it opened in 1925 down the block and across the street from Carnegie Hall — and a financial burden. Steinway is shopping for space in Manhattan, convenient to Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and Mr. Sweeney said he wanted a showroom where the pianos would look like “sculptural objects,” along with a recital hall and practice rooms.  
Steinway must vacate the 57th Street space by the end of next year, and many pianists are sorry it is leaving. “I’m sure I’m with everybody else on this, that it’s a shame that building will no longer be Steinway Hall,” the pianist Emanuel Ax said. “One of the two times that I met Horowitz for five seconds was when they did a celebration in that building after his 1965 return” to performing, at Carnegie Hall. “That was very, very meaningful.”

A 1PekingRoad.com member visited me in Shenzhen over the weekend. After supper, which was sumptuous, I gave my long time acquaintance (mamasan) a jingle to make sure that she had the most gorgeous girl reserved for my buddy, who was a 60+ old fart and had not been able to break away from his wife for the longest time.  
The old fart and I shared a 2-bedroom suite. It was around mid-night: a lady in early twenties with big breasts and wide hips (丰乳肥臀) showed up at the door. The mamasan called and asked if the merchandise was acceptable. I asked my buddy and he said it’s a go.  
The lady got undressed, and waited for him to come out of the bathroom to come to bed. When he emerged, however, he had nothing on except a rubber to cover a 12-inch erection, and was carrying a pair of Bluetooth earplugs and nose plugs.  
Rather confused, she asked, "What are those for?"  
The old fart replied, "There are just two things I can’t stand – he sound of a woman screaming and the smell of burning rubber."

回覆 (177): No more G spot
No more G spot, it's now called Cul-de-Sac. Get your terminology right next time you describe your "coupling".  
Nobody goes to the G-spot anymore. It's a total Clit and Rectal crowd. Everyone's going to the Cul-de-Sac now. It's actually called the Vaginal Fornix, but no one calls it that. It's that place where the vagina dead-ends, sort of, like, behind the cervix. Like, if you were going to the cervix? But you kept going around the back? You can't see it unless the uterus is raised, like, turned on. It's supposed to be hard to get in. Maybe for you. I mean, guys have to be at least average size. There's a password: butterfly, like, the position where the girl has her legs all the way up, and then she has to suck in right as she's coming. That's what Barbara Keesling from Cal State Fullerton says. She wrote Super Sexual Orgasm: Discover the Ultimate Pleasure Spot: The Cul-de-Sac. She's all, "It's called light-socket sex... Seriously, you get the fireworks sensation of the lights behind your eyes. You get unusual sensations in your retina that we would call, like, fireworks. You get shooting colors. And it also makes you weak in the knees when you go to stand up afterward. And it also gives you a kind of uhhh, uhhh panting type of sensation." And I was all, "No way," and then she was like, "Penetration in the cul-de-sac goes to the spinal cord on a different nerve than the G-spot or the clitoris." But I talked to this doctor guy? Dr. Orlandis Wells OB-GYN? He was all, "Yes and no. Every woman's sensitivity spot is different. The G-spot and the cul-de-sac are often painful for some women who enjoy the labia stimulation better." And I was like, "Who said anything about the labia?" Gross!  
回覆 (176): opposing condoms....
According to the new study "Canadian and American Sex Therapists' Perceptions of Normal and Abnormal Ejaculatory Latencies: How Long Should Intercourse Last?" adequate coitus lasts anywhere from three to seven minutes, not including the Pledge of Allegiance. This data, from all the normal people who see therapists for sexual problems, corresponds closely to earlier studies, which put the average at five to seven minutes. (We can safely blame the two-minute discrepancy on the Canadians.)  
"Very few people have intercourse per se [Latin for by thrust] that goes longer than 12 minutes," says sex therapist Barry W. McCarthy. Essentially, ejaculatory inhibition, which is also called "delayed orgasm" or "junkie orgasm," has less to do with actual time than an inability to ejaculate when you'd like. And premature ejaculation, which is also called "rapid ejaculation" or "your ejaculation," refers to intercourse that lasts less than a minute or two.  
McCarthy says you can slow things down by honing your technique through what he calls "nonintercourse sex" (what the rest of us call "jerking off"). You also might want to try switching positions and varying the speed and pattern of your thrusts, and then you might attain the required 18-minute minimum no legitimately normal person ever fails to meet.

.......Several working and former actresses interviewed said they opposed condoms for another reason: They chafe.  
“The average length of intercourse for most Americans is 10 minutes,” said Nina Hartley, a former nurse and well-known actress in pornographic films since 1984. In her work, she said, “it’s 30 to 60 minutes of thrusting. It doesn’t matter how much lube you use, it’s uncomfortable, it’s a friction burn, and it opens up lesions in the genital mucosa. I could handle two to three condom scenes a month. But actors are paid by the scene, and I couldn’t do three in a week.” ..........

回覆 (170): Falla: La Vida Breve
The best TSO performance I've heard in the RTH, under the baton of Maestro Fruhbeck de Burgos. It's like another orchestra. I never realized (forgive my ignorance) a great conductor can totally transformed an orchestra like the TSO as much as last night.  
It had everything: the Spanish/Gypsy free flow/romance in general, the precision of the massed strings, the fire power at the crescendos, and the inherent bitterness of Falla's tragic La Vida Breve.  
Our Mendelssohn Choir also aptly added the darkness to the overall ambience of a tragic opera, and the occasional thrill of Falla's music whenever called for.  
The singers were all amazing, especially with Dame Herrera's role as Salud. Her big mezzo-soprano voice successfully portrayed an utterly shattered, totally devastated gypsy her lover Paco's ruthless betrayal.  
The flamenco dancer from Spain also delivered a fantastic performance, and received roaring applauses during and after the opera.  
A concert opera that was absolutely enjoyable!  
回覆 (170): Victoria de los Ángeles
Victoria de los Ángeles’ repertoire was very narrow, relatively speaking. I would venture to say that anything non-Spanish is outside of her domain, within which, however, I have yet to come across anybody as expressive with skills as refined.  
She was very much underrated primarily due to her physical appearance. Yes, it’s an entertainment business so you have to be gorgeous looking and have to have humongous tits sticking out (呼之欲出) a la Madonna.  
My sister was accepted by Julliard but my dad had gone belly up many years before so she had to resort to Taiwan and ended up marrying a poor Malaysian Chinese musician. Even if she had gone to Julliard, she would not have gone anywhere afterwards anyway ---- being a non-white, not being nice looking and not having BIG tits…………..

feikeung 兄:  
I'm attending the concert of your favourite opera, this Thursday here in Toronto. It won't be a staged performance, and will be only in the form of a concert opera.  
However, it will be conducted by Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos, with all the singers, whom he brought along with him from Spain. Miss Los Angeles will be missed.  
Wish you were here!

kh33, your crystal clarity is rare and appreciated!
回覆 (163): Lance Armstrong
Lance Armstrong has been stripped off his 7 titles of Tour de France because of doping.  
He denied the accusations. He made no apology.  
He was hailed as an American hero, an icon.  
He is a typical American.  
He is a cheater, like Marion Jones.  
The Chinese badminton mixed double pair was banned from competition in London Olympics for unsportmanship behaviour.  
They made an apology, sincerely, even though they took no drugs, broke no rules.  
They were condamned by the foreign press, more so by the local media.  
These condamnation also pointed to the whole Chinese sports team, even to the whole nation.  
So, which is the real 強國.
