Scientists believe this journal may start getting actual use, for mine music homework, and deviations from music homework.

It's come to be watched by several mysterious peoples that I don't know (hihi), who can continue to watch or drop as desired. Perfect genius will probably not be present for the first couple of weeks at least.

But first, I battle the music software availability.

Blinded by the Light - Bruce Springsteen
Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground
Some all-hot half-shot was headin' for the hot spot snappin' his fingers clappin' his hands
And some fleshpot mascot was tied into a lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand
And now young Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget-me-not whispers daddy's within earshot save the buckshot turn up the band

And she was blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
She got down but she never got tight, but she'll make it alright

Some brimstone baritone anti-cyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
He says: "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in its funny bone, that's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner all alone watchin' the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone to remind him of the feeling of romance

Yeah he was blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
He got down but she never got tight, but he's gonna make it tonight

Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes
She said I'll turn you on sonny, to something strong if you play that song with the funky break,
And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe to go outside
And little Early-Pearly came in by her curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride,
Oh, some hazard from Harvard was skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier
Yes and Scotland Yard was trying hard, they sent a dude with a calling card,
he said, do what you like, but don't do it here
Well I jumped up, turned around, spit in the air, fell on the ground
Asked him which was the way back home
He said take a right at the light, keep goin' straight until night, and then boy, you're on your own

And now in Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a side car hummin' a lunar tune
Yes, and the avatar said blow the bar but first remove the cookie jar we're gonna teach those boys to laugh too soon

And some kidnapped handicap was complainin' that he caught the clap from some mousetrap he bought last night,

Well I unsnapped his skull cap and between his ears I saw
a gap but figured he'd be all right

He was just blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
Oh but mama that's where the fun is

Audio analysis personnel ready themselves to communicate with the sparkling, illuminated objects at the rendezvous point. A giant electronic board covered with colored strips and a powerful synthesized musical keyboard have been constructed at the site. The Air Force scientists duplicate the electronic sounds that they have heard in transmissions, mixing them with light sequences (on colored strips) to communicate. The computer and audio specialists play the loud clear sounds of the five-note sequence after the signal: "Sunset":

Start with the tone. (Pinkish-red) - G
Up a full tone. (Orange) - A
Down a major third. (Purple) - F
Now drop an octave. (Yellow) - F (an octave lower)
Up a perfect fifth. (White) - C
Lacombe suggests that the organist play the sequence with an increased tempo and try different frequencies for the five notes, as he marches out to the end of the runway. The three ships dance above the runway and respond with their own duplicate tones - they emit the musical sounds in the specific combination of five notes. And then they fly off, separating and soaring heavenward.

...

Give her six quavers, then pause.
She sent us four quavers, a group of five quavers, a group of four semi-quavers...
What are we saying to each other?
It seems they're trying to teach us a basic tonal vocabulary.
It's the first day of school, fellas.
Take everything from the lady. Follow her pattern note for note.
Jill is drawn forward and hurries toward the runway and the ship. One of the audio specialists realizes that they are actually communicating (or interlocked) in a joyful mood with the alien ship: "We have a translation interlock on their audio signal. We're taking over this conversation now." After the notes of the ship slowly die out, a large cargo door in the belly of the ship slides open - a blinding, brilliant white light emanates from within. The panel slides down and becomes a ramp.

...

One extra-terrestrial alien remains. Lacombe gestures to the alien with the Zoltan Kodaly hand signals for the five-tone sequence. The alien responds, pleasingly, to the hand-to-hand communication with a repetition of the same signals. The extraterrestrial turns. ...

A Minor Scale (Twice-baked Harmonic) — Similar to the harmonic, but changes the first half of the scale to be the same pattern as the second half.

[EDIT: except I was boneheaded and my brain (made of bone) was convinced that there were two identical halves in a major scale, so everything on this page was wrong, and the whole purpose of the page was full of gerbils. Let's re-wiggle the woggle thusly:]

Half steps: °° A ° Bb °°° C# ° D °° E ° F °°° G# ° A2131 2131
Half steps: ° A ° Bb °°° C# ° D °° E ° F °°° G# ° A131 2131 . 131 2131 . 131 2131

Oh. Wait. That doesn't work. Ok, it's the Half-Baked Harmonic Scale.

Now it works. Thrice-baked harmonic. Fearless music teacher reports: "1312131 is actually called a double (not half-baked) harmonic scale, among other names (I've seen it called 'Persian' and 'Byzantine' too, for instance)". So apparently someone took my invention back in time from the distant famous future. mk.

The Queen of Light took her bow
    And then she turned to go.
The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom
    And walked the night alone.
Oooh dance in the dark of night,
    Sing to the morning light.

The Dark Lord rides in force tonight
    And time will tell us all.
Ohhh throw down your plow and hoe,
    Rest not to lock your homes.
As side by side we wait the might
    Of the darkest of them all. Ohhh.

I hear the horses thunder
    Down in the valley below.
I'm waitin' for the angels of Avalon,
    Waitin' for the eastern glow.


The apples of the valley hold
    The seeds of happiness.
The ground is rich from tender care,
    Repay, do not forget. Ohhh No, no!
Dance in the dark of night,
    Sing to the morning light.
The apples turn to brown and black,
    The tyrant's face is red. Oooh
Hohh now! War is the common cry,
    Pick up your swords and fly.

The sky is filled with Good and Bad
    That mortals never know. Ohhh Now.









Oh well, the night is long,
    The beads of time pass slow.
Tired eyes on the sunrise,
    Waitin' for the eastern glow.


The pain of war cannot exceed
    The woe of aftermath.
The drums will shake the castle wall,
    The Ringwraiths ride in black. Ride on.
Ohhh Sing as you raise your bow,
    Ride on. Shoot straighter than before
No comfort has the fire that night
    That lights the face so cold.
Ohhh dance in the dark of night,
    Sing to the morning light.
The magic runes are writ in gold
    To bring the balance back.
Bring it back.











At last the sun is shinin',
    The clouds of blue roll by.
With flames from the dragon of darkness,
    The sunlight blinds his eyes. Eyes.


Ah-ah-oh. Oooh-ooh~ooh. Ahhh.
Oooh. Bring it back. Bring it back.
A-bring it back. Bring it back.
Bring it back. Bring it back.
Bring it back. Bring it back.
Oh now, oh now, oh now ahh.
Oh now, oh now, oh now.
Bring it back. Bring it back.
Bring it back. A-bring it back.
Whoah now, oh now, oh now ohh.
Whoah now, oh now, oh now.
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it,
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it,
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring~ahhh.

"Cherry Blossoms, cherry blossoms. On mountains, in villages. 
As far as you can see. 
They look like fog or clouds.  They are fragrant in the morning sun. 
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms.  In full bloom."
