Sean replied to P. Dictus Magister's discussion Chatholic church music for relaxation. in the group Catholic Men
"Which one?  There are dozens.  My favourites are the Orbis Factor and the Missa De Angelis.  Byrd has a beautiful one for his Mass for Three Voices, but that isn't chant."
Sean replied to Matthew Martino's discussion Getting Published
"About your immediate situation- run.  Money comes to the author, it never leaves him.  IF they want money to publish your book, they are a vanity publishing outfit.  Have nothing to do with them.  Good luck- I mean that…"

"I actually did the Dies Irae sequence at a funeral once.   Truth is, we Cahtolics once owned music.  We invented Western music as it exists today, and many of the greatest composers ever wrote music for the Church (though, sadly,…"

Sean replied to Bearwolf's discussion Why Do They Bother Going To Mass? in the group Catholic Men
"This sort of ting is always a trial, but at the end of the day, what they do has nothing to do with what you do.   If they do not show proper respect, what does that have to do with your attendance and your worship?  This is the sort…"

Sean replied to Chris Porter's discussion The lost art of being a handyman
"In part, yes. Also, television and now the internet. It seems to me that we're not losing being handy because we're specialized, but also because we're getting lazier and have more and more distractions."

Sean replied to Ramsay Bolton's discussion The Evolved Man of the Future

Saxon replied to Sean's discussion So, what do you sing? in the group Manly Singers
"Like you, I am a baritenor, with emphasis on the tenor. My singing range is C#2-E5, but my comfort range is narrower (currently roughly G2-G4). I like the "singing" styles of singing, the styles that focus upon the actual art of song. That…"

Christmas in the Workshop

Posted on December 19, 2011 at 7:19am 0 Comments

I am not one of Santa's elves, but at this time of year I do a reasonable impression.

This year, I am making a couple of hope chests for my daughters.

The challenge in these pieces lies in…


My insanity plea, update,

Posted on April 12, 2011 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

A little over a year ago I posted about one of my ongoing woodworking projects-a homemade pipe organ.  I thought I would drop in an update:  I have finally completed the pipes, all four hundred and change of them,  for the keyboard.  I am now left with a decision:  Should I build fifty pipes for the pedal argan, or should I leave it keyboard only?  The pedal organ pipes would be the largest, and at… Continue

It's Shakespeare Day!

Posted on April 23, 2010 at 7:30am 8 Comments

Today is the 446th anniversary of the date traditionally assigned to Shakespeare’s birth. It is also the 396th anniversary of his death, but people being what they are, we tend to look upon the birthday rather than the deathday aspect of the matter, thus, perhaps, play some lip service to the long acclaimed notion of the ever-living, immortal bard.

But why do I speak of Shakespeare, the man from Stratford, and his life and death, when many believe that he did not, could not, in any… Continue

Lessons in Manliness

Posted on March 22, 2010 at 11:30am 1 Comment

My father. Born in Hamilton in 1922, died in Mississauga in 1996. In the almost three quarters of a century that he lived, he saw the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Post War Boom, the Cold War, the end of the Cold War. At the beginning of his life, cars were a luxury, and carts pulled by horses still rumbled regularly through the streets of Hamilton. The sound of an aeroplane flying overhead was enough to make people run out of their houses and look up. He…

Thanks. I figure a guy who takes time to welcome random people to a web community he's not in charge of is probably a guy worth knowing.

Out to Build Bridges

This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group.  But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate…See More
