This morning Alissa was watching Little Einsteins and they were shredding Beethoven's fifth. It was driving me completely insane*, so when I got in the car I put on the real piece on my MP3 player to allow my brain to heal. When I arrived at work there were still about five minutes left, so I switched to my nice headphones (no earbuds for Beethoven) and even though a co-worker was in the elevator with me, he respected my immersion in the music (real headphones seem to have that effect) and we merely exchanged nods.

Thirty seconds before the end of the last movement, the MP3 data had apparently gotten corrupted, and I was "treated" to about five seconds of random snippets before the final passage.

It ruined the whole thirty-minute buildup. The final chords were meaningless.

"The Lede" (the NYTimes blog, not to be confused with "The View") has a piece on neologisms. (I've stumped for "igry" in the comments section, but it wouldn't hurt for others to chime in. I know, you're all en route to Ann Arbor.)
