I especially loved, “also, are you ever off the ground?”

(And notice a younger looking Woody Allen there.)

Thanks to sociosound for bringing this to my attention!

[name here]‘s cat seems to hate the Mozart oboe concerto as much as she does

… to hear the oboe tone described as piercing:

An oboe is a woodwind instrument that produces a clear yet quite a piercing sound when played.

(Read here, on an ezine article about purchasing an oboe.)

Couldn’t we use a different word? Pretty please? Piercing sounds … well … painful. And while we oboists like to make a listener cry, we’d prefer not to do it because we’ve hurt their ears. We would rather hurt their hearts.

We are nice that way.

Not sure what counter melody is behind the B3 (not C3), but it’s a solo reed like an oboe or a bassoon. Musicology Geek Out!
