Watching CSI (yeah, I know, I know, you’d think I’d watch only PBS) the CSI team is in the child prodigy’s room; she has a violin sitting upright, leaning against her chair. The bow is sitting on the chair.

Right.

That’s how a violinist would leave her instrument. Of course.

Sort of like the open house we went through once; the clarinet was on top of the desk, balanced upright (fortunately no earthquake that day). Uh-huh.

It’s always funny to see the way television, movie and magazine folks think of instruments and instrumentalists. I remember one magazine that pictured these lovely romantic pictures of a model with instruments out in fields and random places.

Just like real life.

Am I cynical? Only when appropriate.
