Japan's Beethoven admits he's a fake

SHAMED: Dubbed Japan's Beethoven, Mamoru Samuragoch yesterday confessed he didn't write most of his works.

A deaf composer, dubbed Japan's Beethoven, confessed yesterday to hiring someone to write his most iconic works, leaving duped public broadcaster NHK red-faced.

Namoru Samuragoch shot to fame in the mid-1990s with classical compositions that provided the soundtrack to video games like Resident Evil, despite having a degenerative condition that affected his hearing since childhood.

   Samuragoch became completely deaf at 35 but continued to work, notably producing "Symphony No 1, Hiroshima", a tribute to those killed in the 1945 atomic bombing of the city, AFP reported.

   Time magazine published an interview with him, calling him "digital age Beethoven."

   "I listen to myself," he told the magazine. "If you trust your inner sense of sound, you create something that is truer. It is like communicating from the heart. Losing my hearing was a gift from God."

   In March last year, NHK aired a documentary entitled "Melody of the Soul", in which it showed the musician touring the tsunami-battered Tohoku region to meet survivors and those who lost relatives in the 2011 catastrophe.

   Viewers flocked to buy his Hiroshima piece, which became an anthemic tribute to the tsunami-hit region's determination to get back on its feet and was known informally as the symphony of hope.

   But yesterday, the composer's life was revealed to have been a fraud, and an NHK anchor offered a full apology for having aired the documentary. It is not known what made him come clean.

   "Through his lawyer, Samuragoch confessed that he had asked another composer to create his iconic works," said the anchor.

   The broadcaster quoted Samuragoch as saying his deception had begun nearly two decades ago.

   Samuragoch paid for the commissioned works, said NHK, adding the unidentified real composer has yet to respond to requests for a comment.

Insomniacs of the world, rejoice!

The meditation app, Omvana, has been getting rave reviews.

But ever since it was released it had been flooded with requests from people who want something a little more... boring!

Something they say...that would help them not just meditate - but sleep. Soundly. Like a baby.

Dormio – the new app so boring - that it will instantly put you to sleep : http://www.dormioapp.com

'Politicizing Beyonce' course offered in US university

It is not clear how useful a qualification it will be, but a US university is launching a course on singer Beyonce.

   Called Politicizing Beyonce, the course is being offered by The Department of Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University in the state of New Jersey.

   Overseeing the class is Professor Kevin Allred, who said that Beyonce's career will be used to explore the issues of race, gender and sexual politics in the US.

   To this end, students in the courses will analyse her videos and lyrics.

   Prof Allred said it will help students think more critically about media consumption.

   This is not the first performer-related course offered by Rutgers as it previously held a class on the theology of Bruce Springsteen's lyrics.

   And those who feel they may be better suited for a course on Beyonce's husband could enrole at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.

   There, a course called The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Urban Theodicy of Jay-Z is being offered. - Wires.

"Testing...one, two, three. Well...well fuck, I mean; I just don't know what to say. I'm very glad to be here with you tonight, I'll be able to talk to you about some things...that I know a great deal about. Everyone knows that you are fucked up. And everyone knows that I am fucked up. But, does everyone know that you are more fucked up than me? Well, I know that. And you know that. But our purpose is to tell everyone that. Take for instance, the time you went to the bathroom, to take a shower. You had some soap, a towel, shampoo, washcloth, a brush, everything was set. But you had to call me to come turn on the water for you. You didn't know where or how. That is one instance of how fucked up you are. A second instance of how fucked up your are: You was going to cook you some breakfast. Well you went in there, and put some toast in the toaster, put a skillet on the stove, put some grease in it. You got you some eggs out, some bacon. Poured you some orange juice and some coffee. Got some jelly and some butter. Fried eggs, salt, pepper, got some bacon on the grill. Everything was fine - except for one thing. You had to call in there...to show you how to use a fork. Now a third instance; the way you're fucked up. You got dressed, ready to go to school. Everything was fine - got outside, got in your car. Key in the ignition. Except for one thing. You had to call me to come show you."

No.18782 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hi, /music/.

    I'm learning how to play the guitar, and, by now, I can play chords with rythm in a decent way.

    Tell me which songs should I play, which sound fine with only chords and rythm.

    My favourites so far are:
    Won't get fooled again - The Who
    Get back - The Beatles
    Don't stop me now - Queen

    BEGIN!! And thanks in advance.
