Crytidz – a Message from the Good Doctor

Because I post stupid shit that doesn’t even make sense to me most of the time, one of our brothers here at hostageland sent me a link for this little beastie:

Rock Around the Croc: Rondo Form

Welcome back to your weekly installment of “you are uncultured swine and I’m trying to put you some freakin’ knowledge for once even though I’m sure my efforts are wasted” Sunday. I’m your host, the woefully under-qualified Sobek, and I like pretending I know stuff about music. Today we continue our exploration of the Classical era, and the forms that composers used in creating symphonies. So far we’ve looked at Theme and Variations Form and Minuet and Trio form. Today we look at Rondo.

That being said, we’ll start with probably the most famous Rondo of the classical era, Mozart’s “All Turca”:

MMM 405: Uruk

You probably haven’t heard the name “Uruk”, but you might have heard the name “Gilgamesh”.  Uruk was the city where Gilgamesh was once king over the Sumerian Mesopotamians.  It looks, well, a little run-down now, but this is a ziggurat surrounded by 450 acres of the city from which we believe writing itself may have first come.  The ziggurat was built somewhere around 4500-4100 BC, and the city is believed to have been continuously occupied from 5000 BC to the time of Christ.

MMM 385: Ba’albek

Etymologically, there’s reason to believe that the city in modern Lebanon (famous for these ruins, and known as Heliopolis to the Greeks and Romans who once built and lived here) is named for the Ba’al of the Old Testament, the competing but false god prayed to by many neighbors of the Israelites.  The largest stones in the images below are the massive mastabas upon which the Greeks built their temples to Jupiter and Bacchus, which archaeologists tell us were added much later, though how much later is still up for dispute (dating stonework is harder than, say, skeletal remains).   Due to their strategic location in Lebanon, these same temples were used as garrisons and forts during various conflicts, including the Crusades, and there is evidence of “recent” (AD ~1200, iirc) repair to some wall segments by the Moslem forces who used them militarily.

This is known as “The Stone of the Pregnant Woman”.  It weighs 1820 tons.  No crane, no machines, no diesel fuel, quarried from bedrock and moved at least half a mile (though downhill) to where it now sits, half-sunk in the soil.
