Any links to the "masterclass sources" you guys are talking about?
Am also curious but the true meaning of a masterclass. I encounter it in my daughters’ ballet stuff. Usually after a competition or a program, there is a “masterclass” where all participants attend. What makes it different from just a “class”?
Are you guys referring to "The Rodent" by any chance?
I alway thought that Masterclasses were the classes needed after your Bachelorette Degree to obtain a Masters Degree.
I was rummaging through some boxes the other day and discovered a bunch of educational videos on Betamax. Still in their cellophane wrappers. Unwatched.
Are these barnfind masterclasses?
Here is a thread for you....
I play fiddle in several fiddle groups. Two members in two of those groups teach beginners how to play fiddle music. Neither of these people have the slightest idea of pitch, or rhythm! I shudder to think how a newbie could achieve a level of skill under such circumstances!
The most tediously overused adjective I have noticed on the internet and TV is "amazing". Everyone and everything is f uckin amazing.
"how was your costar's performance?"
"oh he is amazing".
There is a self-declared "Master Watchmaker" that posts videos on the forum sometimes, and then whines a bit and tells people to shut up. I'll bet he would teach a master class if someone kissed his ass enough.
There was a guy at the marina down the street from us in Cebu City that was an expert fisherman and knew exactly what kind of bait worked on certain fish.
I'm assuming it's about this...
Actually no, it's generally done for young students. The rare privilege of being taught a lesson by a master is a special thing.
That's so incredible. Totally bizarre. Like, literally surreal. We've been on a journey, but it's an emotional rollercoaster.
And what about all those watches that are 'under rated' No, they are just un loved. and un sold, not under rated or under the radar.
That one is pretty good, but mine is “Epic” epic this or that.
My equivalent radio hate is "obviously". ("This is obviously amazing". Man, it's radio - nothing is "obvious" until you tell us about it!
Sorry. Zoom meeting coming up, just offloading. Penalty no-internet day liable to be imposed.
I once listened - on a BBC radio broadcast - to a live description of the Edinburgh firework display (after having consumed the best part of a bottle of whisky so my memories may be a little hazy now) .That really was a masterclass. Imagine using words alone to paint a picture of exploding rockets to those unable to attend. And I was there watching them too. Surreal (another word that is now devalued through overuse).
I'll get my coat....
Google Adsense is slowly but surely turning the web into a swamp. Before youtube, everybody and his sister would start useless websites and pepper them with ads. When people heard that an 8-year-old boy made 22 MILLION dollars in one year reviewing toys on youtube, everybody rushed to create useless videos--thus we have influencers, masterclasses, etc. To get an idea of how far this has gone, I just did a google search for "how do I close a door." Believe it or not, the first hit was a youtube video titled "How to Close a Door." Somebody needs to invent "Web 2," where advertising is strictly forbidden.
