Today is the birthday of Mikie. I can't remember what exactly caused him to leave Smiley. I do recall him insisting that I shouldn't forget his birthday!

That was at PSF. A lot of water has been passed under the bridge since then. Tongue

It's a funny old world, to be sure. Anyway. Many happies, sir. police

Great to see Rocker keeping up the BB Magazine Scans topic after so many of the earlier scans went missing.

Vielen dank!

Just got back after a week spent in the beautiful Russian city of St. Petersburg. What a place! Roll Eyes

Incredibly perhaps, we never visited The Hermitage--too little time and so much else to see. We did visit a fantastic Ilya Repin exhibition at the Russian Museum though.

Perhaps the most extraordinary museum we visited was The State Museum of the Political History of Russia. That really was an eye-opener! Shocked

I should add that we attended a performance of a relatively obscure Prokofiev opera, Betrothal in a Monastery, at the Mariinsky Theatre.

A never-to-be-forgotten experience--not least because of the caviar on toast during the second interval!

When we were in St. Petersburg the week before last I took this picture of a plaque on the wall at Ulitsa Marata 9, where one of my idols, the composer Dimitri Shostakovich, lived from 1914 to 1933:



And then we ate Borscht at a brilliant restaurant almost next door...

Dear browser, it's very kind of you to look in here but really you would be better off checking out this splendid topic:

http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,26762.msg654743.html#msg654743

If you only have time in your busy life for a few tracks, scroll down through the SoundCloud page linked in the OP to "Poro", "Il pastor", "Orlando", "Ariodante" and "Messiah". But it's all wonderful stuff.

This is the topic that requires your attention right now. I hope more folks dive in there with ideas and opinions to help get this labour of love off the ground!
