I saw The Pirates of Penzance at the LosAngeles Music Center in 1982. Andy Gibb played the lead. Above the stage were two huge portraits of Queen Victoria and President Hayes.

Gibb did a superb job, but unbeknownst to us, he was on his way down. A few weeks later, he would be dropped from the cast when the production went on the road. A problem with drugs eventually ended his show business career and then his life.

Appropriately it's a leap year. There is a character in The Pirates of Penzance who was born on February 29th--and apprenticed to a pirate until his 21st birthday.

"Come, friends, who plough the sea,
Truce to navigation, take another station,
Let's vary piracy
With a little burglary!"

I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical;
I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical,
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical,
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news,
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse.

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus;
I know the scientific names of beings animalculous:
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Caradoc's;
I answer hard acrostics, I've a pretty taste for paradox,
I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of Heliogabalus,
In conics I can floor peculiarities parabolous;
I can tell undoubted Raphaels from Gerard Dows and Zoffanies,
I know the croaking chorus from The Frogs of Aristophanes!
Then I can hum a fugue of which I've heard the music's din afore,
And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore.

Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform,
And tell you ev'ry detail of Caractacus's uniform:
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,<
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

In fact, when I know what is meant by "mamelon" and "ravelin",
When I can tell at sight a Mauser rifle from a Javelin,
When such affairs as sorties and surprises I'm more wary at,
And when I know precisely what is meant by "commissariat",
When I have learnt what progress has been made in modern gunnery,
When I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery—
In short, when I've a smattering of elemental strategy—
You'll say a better Major-General has never sat a gee.

For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury,
Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century;
But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.
WHEW!!!

HE IS A KE-EN-YAN!

He is a Ke-en-yan
For he himself has said it,
And it's greatly to his credit,
That he is a Ke-en-yan!


THAT HE IS A KE-EN-YAN!

For he might have been a Roosian,
A French, or Turk, or Proosian,
Or perhaps Itali-an!


OR PERHAPS ITALI-AN!

But in spite of all temptations
To belong to other nations,
He remains an Ke-en-yan!
He remains an Ke-en-yan!

BUT IN SPITE OF ALL TEMPTATIONS
TO BELONG TO OTHER NATIONS,
HE REMAINS A KE-EN-YAN!
HE REMAINS A KE-EN-YAN!
There you go. :)

I saw Bill Hayes (he of soap opera fame, and earlier, Sid Caesar’s Show of Shows, now retired) in the Mikado (he was (Nan Ke Poo)at the Railroad Fair in Chicago in 1949. I was just a kid and he a young man.

You could download a copy of "Audacity" and record the whole thing...while you sleep. You'd just need to start it at 10pm and let it run. Even a recording that goes from 10pm to 6am would only be about 500Mb in an MP3 file.

Ahhhhh! I LOVE G&S!!!!

There is always one or two of their operas in my Netflix !

Pirates and patience are among my favorites, of that there is no manner of doubt, no possible probable shadow of doubt, no possible doubt whatever.

I always liked “Alone Again, Naturally.” Oh wait, that was Gilbert O’Sullivan.

re: bfl

Are you referring to:

1. A logarithmic unit of sound intensity equal to 10 decibel?

or

2: The Babylonian god of the earth; one of the supreme triad including Anu and Ea; earlier identified with En-lil?

I tend to think it’s #1.

LoL. I’m not THAT familiar with The Pirates of Penzance.

My son, a “Little Genius” type with a near-editic memory ,saw a production of The HMS Pinafore and has been singing the lyrics — ALL OF THEM — ever since in the car. (You should hear him sing the female parts — hilarious!).

His favorite:

For in spite of all temptations
To belong to other nations,
He remains an Englishman!
He remains an Englishman!

At the moment, he’s now singing Haywire Mac’s songs about bums — Big Rock Candy Mountain in particular. I’ve told him NOT to sing the dirty lines!

One evening as the sun went down and the jungle fire was burning
Down the track came a hobo hiking and he said boys I’m not turning
I’m headin for a land that’s far away beside the crystal fountains
So come with me we’ll go and see the Big Rock Candy Mountains
