belle le triste

Bcz my head is screwed on a bit wrong, my first thought after having bits of that gleefully read out at work yesterday was wondering how a marble piano actually sounds


Off topic, a lot of additional information about the PLA immediately before Tiananmen has emerged: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/03/world/asia/tiananmen-square-25-years-later-details-emerge-of-armys-chaos.html?partner=rss&emc=rss


belle: you ask, I deliver.



Steinway will do you a piano with what I can only describe as marble wallpaper. http://www.steinway.com/images/piano-model/marbleized.png

And a bunch of scrappy, indomitable unemployed Chinese metalworkers will do you a steel piano, http://hkmdbnews.com/?tag=steel-piano, so I'm sure they would knock one together from marble if you asked them.


re Alex @2

The takeaway from that looks like it was 1905 rather than 1917. so 1989 Interesting as an inflection point between a dictatorship with obsolete revolutionary trappings, and the starting point of the professionalised reactionary dictatorship that developed since then.
