Meta-Blogging: July 2010 Archives
Welcome to the 111th Philosophers' Carnival. For more information on the Philosophers' Carnival, please see here. Most hosts just present the posts neutrally, but sometimes they comment on them. I'm going to take the latter course this time around, although in some cases I'll have more to say than in others. I've extended a little grace and included posts outside the three-week range for this carnival if they otherwise met the criteria for inclusion and if the date wasn't too far back (the submitted post from May will not be appearing).
The 111th Philosophers' Carnival is coming up here at Parableman on Monday. Check the Philosophers' Carnival site for more information, including the submissions form.
Update Tuesday July 20: The carnival should be up by this evening (EST) sometime. Sorry for the delay.
a few days ago:
Ethan: (listening to radio) Hey, I have that song on one of my CDs, except it's in a different key.
me: What key is this in?
Ethan: It's in G.
me: What key is the other one in?
(He hasn't ever tried to play the song on the piano or use any other method to figure out the key.)
me: Hey, aren't you learning to play this song in your piano lessons?
me: Is it in the same key?
me: What key do you play it in?
me: What key is this version in?
I didn't check to see if he was right. He might have trouble with sharps and flats, and he may not be precise yet with it, but this is well beyond most musicians even after lots of training. So we can add this to the ability to drum a 7/8 rhythm at age 6.
