    +/- Question

    In todays Buffalo News (5-5-07) page B2 Maxim Afinogenov is has a +/- rating of -1.

    How do they come up with -1?

    He may of been on the ice when the Rangers scored their only goal. that would give him a -1 rating but he scored the game winner.

    Shouldn't his =/- rating be even?

    This article is about the famous musical piece. For the uncontrollable upward movement of the F-86 Sabre, see Sabre dance.
    The "Sabre Dance" is a movement in the final act of Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian's ballet Gayane, completed in 1942. It evokes a whirling war dance in a Kurdish dance, where the dancers display their skill with sabres. Due to its exceptionally exciting rhythm, the Sabre Dance established a place for itself in common concert practice, leading also to various adaptations in popular music.
    It is famously used as the theme to the silent film series Keystone Kops. Plate spinners and other human tricks innovators highly contributed to the movement's popularization in the United States, such as on The Ed Sullivan Show, where it was played while plate spinners performed their act. The "Sabre Dance" was also covered by performers such as jazz musician Woody Herman, vocal trio The Andrews Sisters, rock and roll musician Dave Edmunds, heavy metal guitarist Wolf Hoffmann, prog rock group Ekseption, Tony Levin, and British punk rock bands The Boys, UK Subs and Toy Dolls.
    The tune is frequently featured on the TV series The Simpsons, usually to emphasise fast pace of some situation (e.g. Bye Bye Nerdie) or during an activity containing sort of acrobatic skills (as in Tennis the Menace). In addition, in an April 2006 Family Guy episode Peter "distracted" Lois by whistling Sabre Dance while on a unicycle. The National Hockey League's Buffalo Sabres use Sabre Dance as their theme song. It is also the music played while Late Night with Conan O'Brien's recurring character the Masturbating Bear masturbates on stage. The MSNBC TV program, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, features the music during Oddball, a nightly news feature of bizarre stories, often referring to the tune as "this strange music". The Coen brothers' 1994 film The Hudsucker Proxy also makes use of the music, in a scene in which a newly-invented hula hoop is picked up and used by a young boy for the first time. The piece was arranged and integrated into the wider score by Carter Burwell, who also made use of Khachaturian's other most famous piece, the adagio from Spartacus, as the movie's main theme. Vegas Vacation, A Simple Wish, Hocus Pocus, Radioland murders, Blues Brothers 2000, and Kung Fu Hustle are just some of the films that use Khachaturian's Sabre Dance today. In Spike Jones's song Pal-Yat-Chee, the singer himself imagines the murder scenes in the opera resembles the Sabre Dance.

    This is funny. Someone found this thread and saw the links in post #18 about music.

    Requested if I could add a link back to an article they have.

    How to play punk rock Guitar


    Led by groups like the Sex Pistols, The Clash, the Ramones, and the Buzzcocks, punk rock rode a wave of reactionary sentiment against more buttoned-up music and mainstream culture to become the dominant genre of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The revival of pop-punk in the early 1990s also made stars out of a new generation of punk rockers, including famous bands like Green Day and blink-182.
