Alien invasion overtures concert: practical solutions for the salvation of humankind

Let’s be real, this blog doesn’t generate a lot of comments from anyone other than my family and friends, which is fine because my family and friends have good shit to say, as evidenced by the comments they left. The truth of the matter is, for all the requests for audience participation (all two of them), I was just gonna pick who I thought was the best anyway, so it really didn’t matter in the grand scheme of things I suppose. With that in mind, I present my choice for Earth’s musical champion in the Great Intergalactic Overture Battle 2013 and the program order as I see it:

God damn right.

God damn right.













All music by Gioacchino Rossini:

La gazza ladra
La scala di seta
L’italiana in Algeri
La cambiale de matrimonio
Il barbiere di Siviglia
William Tell

1977 Chicago Symphony Orchestra
1977 Carlos Kleiber, conductor
2004 toothpick that Valery Gergiev conducted that Shostakovich 11 with the World Orchestra for Peace with, baton

I mean, look at that list of overtures, and that’s literally only the half of it. That tubby motherfucker was overrun with good ideas and he knew what to do with them. I’d also like to apologize to Ray Still in advance for the night terrors this will cause. Gotta do what you gotta do.

We win!

  1. Gioacchino Rossini era un benedizion’ di Dio (translation: GR was a blessing from God).
    Of course an Italian should win. Every note worthy piece of literature, poetry, opera, music, Sophia Loren, Ugo Paron (Erik’s Grandpa) and FOOD, in general, began in Italy. The fact that they have never had a terrific government, should in no way prevent the Italians from being primo in everything they do.
    Brava Italia! Bravissimo Gioacchino Rossini!!

  2. Nice!
