    Are people really getting these cases from their cell-phone "auto-correct" features, or are they making them up?
  • NihilNominis

    the second one - ?

    Jublilate Deo
  • Chonak,

    I can vouch for mine, that they use the phone's "auto-correct" feature. Let me tell you, people in public give you weird looks when you're speaking Latin into your phone . . .

    Passer invenit (sibi domum)?

    It isn't really auto-correct, but voice to text, right?

    Ok. How about this one? (probably too easy again)

  • Julie, your last one is terra tremuit.

    Clerget, your last one is te lucis ante terminum.

    Nihil, as a proud supporter of the Butlerian Jihad, I must remind you of one of the chief commandments of the movement: "Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of the human mind."

    Granted, you are doing the reverse, but perhaps that out outcome was inevitable . . .

    Props for the Dune reference. It's my favorite book, and movie.
    Thanked by 1StimsonInRehab
  • Ditto, Clerget. (I know I'm in the minority here, but I think the extended TV version is better than the film version. Explains so much more of the backstory.)

    My favorite is the 4-hour version of the 1984 film with Kyle MacLaughlan, Patrick Stewart, Max von Sydow, and Jurgen Prochnow: a virtual who's who of the 1980s.
  • That's the one I mean! :D I had completely forgotten about the Sci-fi Channel version . . .
  • Great book/flick, and I agree about the Alan Smithee version.

    Perhaps a Name That Hymn Tune Game?

    __u__g___
  • francisfrancis
    Posts: 8,234
    here is one...

    you put the note names of the opening line or less or more, and we have to guess the hymn TUNE name...

    To help your transposing ability (and ease of typing), all melodies should appear in C major or A minor... of course, I am not giving you the rhythm to make it a little more challenging.

    e.g.

    E, E, F, E, D, G, G, A, C, C

    Can be simple (as above) for well known melodies, but try to stump us with those less known ditties!

    No, Mark. Sorry. The spaces didn't come out right for some reason. Try again:

    Well, it's a hymn tune, and it fit! "While by the sheep we watched at night" is the English translation of the traditional German carol. The tune is traditional, arranged by one Hugo Jungst. By coincidence, just happened across a choral arrangement last week—otherwise I would not have heard of it.

    But, okay:

    STUTTGART

    Now back to work!
  • OK - guess this hymn tune:

    Jimmy Stewart won this one fair and square in a contest, but his no-good brother stole it. Now he wants it back - whether it is "old" or "new".

    Instead of note names, why not use solfege and not worry about the "key"?
    Thanked by 1StimsonInRehab
  • Mrs. Cooze - I assumed Francis was using the using the "European system" of Gregorian chant where "do" always equals "c" - no matter the actual pitch. (Dom Johner became much easier to read once I figured out that this was what he meant.)

    #4 AR HYD Y NOS

    #3 is killing me! It is almost identical to the melodic outline of MUNICH as I know it, but it's missing an extra repeated E that I'm accustomed to (pick-up to third full measure) and has one too many G's (beginning of third measure)—at least as I remember it. Anyone?

    The first two do also seem familiar—but I should be staring at Finale files right now! But I'm sure I'll be back—thanks to Stimson, JulieColl, francis, et al., for yet another excuse to procrastinate!
