Moving piano back injury?
Whilst you play, your dearest friend slams the keyboard cover over your fingers.
There's quite a variety already.
Hitting your head on the case while tuning.

Bring the paianna! That's the fourth one I know of so far. I have an upright in my garage already. It is going to be the Year Of The Piano in BRC!
:D
I know where a fire suit like that (I mean JUST like that) can be had in Burbank for fairly cheap....

What if there was like this Totally Flaming Musical? ... :oops: Let me re-state that. :wink:
What if You were to organize a Symphony conducted in flame suits, with a bunch of instruments on fire?! A Cello on fire would be kinda cool. and I've seen a flaming Tymphany.
what piece would be played? Frank Zappas Battle of the grand wazoo? Flaming tubas VS. Lazar guitar.
ELO's Fire on high?
Now, knowing the crowd I'm speaking to this is probably old hat. but still...

I'm still trying to figure out why there are any sound systems out there not using flame speakers.

"Carla, the Grand Dame" Steinway will make her final "performance" @ BM. Just had my left foot amputated this week (really), but still have the right one remaining for "sustain" pedal. Not sure where to take her when I get there, but Terminal City has ultimate control of her demise. She awaits with glee---as do I----her just deserves.

Something slow and diabolic in nature. The visuals of fire (of course), the aural effects of an industrial wood chipper, the slow jerk and twitch under overpowering pressure from a car crusher....perhaps there is such a machine....grinding, flaming et al.

Cheers!

Welcome to the club. But as a bilateral AK, I might look down on your single BK status.

it's a fairly long story, but, took place in a club, two levels under the "old town" square, near the astronomical clock.
Very Gothic looking place.
I had my first real absinthe, therein............and several more........

as the night wore on, two gals jumped on the piano, and, started kissing.........well, others joined them, pretty soon...........it was an orgy on the counters and musical instruments...........Evidently, a large group of German college students, as explained to me by other patrons, who, would have spontaneous orgies in clubs.........hahahaha

"Welcome to Praha".............

The night took many turns, all very interesting.
