Brooklyn, October 5, 1941

This is different. It is musical dissonance to the extreme. Below is a live performance of a piece called "Brooklyn" performed by Blair McMillen. It is performed with a piano, baseballs and a glove. Just check it out, you'll see what I mean.

The YouTube description adds more:
"Performed with baseballs and a baseball mitt, "Brooklyn" was written in remembrance of a highly controversial event in baseball history: the "dropped third strike" by Brooklyn Dodgers catcher Mickey Owen with 2 out in the bottom of the ninth. This enabled the batter to advance to first base, the Yankees scored three runs later that inning, and moved on to win yet another World Series."
That must have been a harrowing series to witness.

  1. Best Back Massager Other electric back massagers are handheld and look very much like a regular shower-head. A button is pressed and the tip either vibrates, rolls, beats, or kneads. Handheld electric back massagers are great for isolated aches and pains and are more flexible in treating muscle pains for it can be used to treat thighs and arms as well. Some handheld electric massagers come with infra-red devices that claim to sooth and rejuvenate tired muscles. These handheld massagers are great for massaging not only yourself, but your loved ones as well.
