Fossil Tuning and The World Cup

On Saturday, we went to Louis Cifer on Danforth for the World
Cup runners-up, Belgium, England.

We were the only ones there. The sports bar sits around 200. We
sat in the upper level, across from the great screen, the best
seats in the house. This morning, back to Louis Cifer for the
final. The place was sold out, but the hostess recognized us. We
best seats in the house. The game was breath-taking! Louder
cheers for Croatia but cheers for France as well. A penalty and
handball, really? France won 4-2. Surprises at every turn. The
New Yorker writes about France and the Triumph of Negative-
Capability Football. Exactly! I thought of a Klein bottle. One
of the high points of our stay!

because the tuning is from the original tuning, strings slipping
over 130 years, each displacement carrying with it the history
of wood and weather, history of steel and what of the tension,
temperature, what of the past playing when the instrument was
new, what of the indwelling sound?
