  • How Candide Was Brought Up in a Magnificent Castle and How He Was Driven Thence - Everything2.com
    oracle of the family and little Candide listened to his instructions with all the simplicity natural to his age and disposition Master Pangloss taught the metaphysico theologo cosmolonigology He could prove to admiration that there is no effect without a cause and that in this best of all possible worlds the Baron s castle was the most magnificent of all castles and My Lady the best of all possible baronesses It is demonstrable said he that things cannot be otherwise than as they are for as all things have been created for some end they must necessarily be created for the best end Observe for instance the nose is formed for spectacles therefore we wear spectacles The legs are visibly designed for stockings accordingly we wear stockings Stones were made to be hewn and to construct castles therefore My Lord has a magnificent castle for the greatest baron in the province ought to be the best lodged Swine were intended to be eaten therefore we eat pork all the year round and they who assert that everything is right do not express themselves correctly they should say that everything is best Candide listened attentively and believed implicitly for he thought Miss Cunegund excessively handsome though he never had the courage to tell her so He concluded that next to the happiness of being Baron of Thunder ten tronckh the next was that of being Miss Cunegund the next that of seeing her every day and the last that of hearing the doctrine of Master Pangloss the greatest philosopher of the whole province and consequently of the whole world One day when Miss Cunegund went to take a walk in a little neighboring wood which was called a park she saw through the bushes the sage Doctor Pangloss giving a lecture in experimental philosophy to her mother s chambermaid a little brown wench very pretty and very tractable As Miss Cunegund had a great disposition for the sciences she observed with the utmost attention the experiments which were repeated before her eyes she perfectly well understood the force of the doctor s reasoning upon causes and effects She retired greatly flurried quite pensive and filled with the desire of knowledge imagining that she might be a sufficing reason for young Candide and he for her On her way back she happened to meet the young man she blushed he blushed also she wished him a good morning in a flattering tone he returned the salute without knowing what he said The next day as they were rising from dinner Cunegund and Candide slipped behind the screen The miss dropped her handkerchief the young man picked it up She innocently took hold of his hand and he as innocently kissed hers with a warmth a sensibility a grace all very particular their lips met their eyes sparkled their knees trembled their hands strayed The Baron chanced to come by he beheld the cause and effect and without hesitation saluted Candide with some

  • Give up - Everything2.com
    for good singing over electronic music Where sometimes I find that electronic music lacks warmth is missing a soul I do like a lot of it though and sometimes that s just what I m after singing can add an extra dimension to the music and give it a depth which may not be possible with music alone Frenetic sounds overlaid with subdued vocals can provide such a perfect contrast A world of power and noise flashing lights and the absence of silence crashes headlong into the imperfect tone of a human voice Programmed perfection is blended with human frailty and the result can be incredibly beautiful as though the competing sounds are different enough to allow you to appreciate them both rarely competing for sonic space living in a different world but somehow meeting at just enough places to not separate completely Give Up covers a lot of musical ground From the oh so close to corny duet that is Nothing Better to the frantic fuzz laden A Natural Anthem somehow the album comes together into a complete package This Place is a Prison slow and emotion laden reminding me of a wooden ship smashed by an ocean storm to The District Sleeps Alone Tonight which should be depressing if not for the driving beat of the music which doesn t ever allow it to become the self pitying song it could have become Something special happens in this album There are songs which don t manage to rise to the heights of those surrounding them I m not sure whether that s due to them being weak songs in themselves or simply due to the fact that they re surrounded by such strength I just hope that this collaboration is not simply a one off project I need more of this The Postal Service Give Up 01 the district sleeps alone tonight 02 such great heights 03 sleeping in 04 nothing better 05 recycled air 06 clark gable 07 we will become silhouettes 08 this place is a prison 09 brand new colony 10 natural anthem I like it 2 C s thing by Hazelnut Tue Mar 19 2013 at 19 39 58 With the tagline a game about failure and regret Give Up is an independently released flash game that first appeared in 2012 which is strangely compelling yet horribly difficult By which I mean the game s own creator can t even beat it so what chance do you think you have It s fairly simple you are a little blue stickman with infinite lives You have to double jump your way over various obstacles from the entrance to the exit The levels start very simple and gradually build up into being more and more difficult with elements being added or taken away progressively as time goes on There s also a loudspeaker in the middle of each level which makes derisive comments as to your progress and advises you to just give up And there

  • You Know My Name (Look Up the Number) - Everything2.com
    oh isn t everything just so bittersweetly beautiful type of way a way that as is evidenced by this sentance cannot be communicated in plain text As the last ultra satasfying uber evocative chords of the song fade out you realize there is one more track to go and wonder what it will be The LCD switches to 15 The accompaniment starts up piano and nice round percussion playing a I iii IV V sequence and it s perfect just perfect this is shaping up to be a feel good song like California Girls a perfect album ender Now that you ve felt profound watched the grey light stream through the windows wondered about the mysteries of Life the Universe and Everything you can come out of hypnosis and get up off the carpet feeling happy The perfect yin and yang that elusive mix of feeling every album should aim for Then the vocal comes in It is indescribably horrific YOU KNOW MY NAME it is shrieking LOOK UP THE NUMBER It continues inexorably segueing into horrific lounge singing then horrific jazz esque something then horrific incatagorizable This is not the song you are looking for It is a joke song you slowly realize a gimmick An extraordinarily elegant and well executed gimmick these are after all the Beatles but a gimmick nonetheless There is no resolution There s no happy profundity There s only John Lennon making fun of gay cabaret singers in a quavering british voice And you can t just stop the CD at 14 oh no All the buildup all the expectation that would normally accompany listening is ruined just like Mostly Harmless ruined So Long and Thanks for All the Fish just like Back to the Future was ruined by Back to the Future II From now on you can never listen to Past Masters Volume Two front to back like you listen to everything else you have to cut it into chunks listen to a single solitary song here and there sandwiched between other single solitary songs from other albums to prevent it from feeling like a piece of a narrative Someday maybe it will be tomorrow maybe it will be next week next month maybe 5 decades in the future but someday somehow I will hunt down and kill whoever is responsible for this whatever lowly Apple Records beaurocrat made that track ordering decision You can t hide from me And if you re already dead then so help me God I will find your corpse exhume it in the dead of night reanimate it and fucking kill it again I ll have you hung And boiled And drawn and quartered And when I ve finished with that I ll take all the little pieces and I will stomp on them Seriously I mean it s like having Spiderman get hit by a bus on the way to his final confrontation with the Green Goblin I like it 1 C Is it me
