YaReally is an esteemed commenter from the blogs Chateau Heartiste and The Rational Male. In the same vein as 'The Book of Pook' and 'The Tyler Digest' I have compiled what I think are his best posts and created this handy to read PDF filled with PUA knowledge bombs. Some say YaReally is Tyler Durden himself, though he denies it, it's easy to see the similarities between the two. Both have forgotten more about PUA and social dynamics than most will ever know
There's nothing at all wrong with Maurizio Pollini's 2009 performance of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1. The Italian pianist's intellectual lucidity, interpretive clarity, and technical virtuosity are apparent in every prelude and fugue, and his probing insights and penetrating analysis inform every note. However, there is almost nothing right with the sound quality of the recording. The piano sounds too distant, making it hard to hear precisely what Pollini is doing, but oddly, the ambient sound is too present, making every extraneous noise too loud. One should not hear the pedals being pressed and lifted, much less the clatter of the hammers and the twanging of the strings above the sound of the music. Worse yet, one can hear what sounds like every breath Pollini takes nearly as loudly as every note he plays. These are all grievous flaws that should have been eliminated, and their presence fatally undermines the brilliance of Pollini's performances. A reengineered version of these performances would be most welcome, but the present recording is so flawed that it virtually destroys Pollini's playing.
