Three Blind Mice Records

Three Blind Mice is a Japanese jazz record label founded in June 1970 as a showcase for Japan’s emerging jazz performers. More than 130 albums have been released since then. So far they have won the Jazz Disc Award five times in Japan. Produced by Takeshi Fujii (producer) and often recorded by the Yoshihiko Kannari, TBM created jazz records by Japanese players since the 1970s and became known for its audiophile sound quality. TBM’s records captured a very important, vibrant era in the development of Japanese jazz. Stars like Isao Suzuki, Tsuyoshi Yamamoto, George Kawaguchi, Terumasa Hino and Mari Nakamoto recorded their very first albums with the label. Artists also include Shuko Mizuno’s ”Jazz Orchestra ’73”, Toshiyuko Miyama and Masaru Imada.Although many of us imagine Humpty Dumpty as a smiley, egg-like character, some have argued that it represented a massive cannon that was hauled to the top of a wall and used by Royalists against Parliamentarians during the English Civil War.

Prisoners here would be visited the night before their hangings by the bell man of St Sepulchre’s, who would hold a candle in one hand and ring the execution bell in the other. He would then recite a poem:
Even at face value, this rhyme about a plummeting baby hardly comes across as upbeat. But some say it is really about King James II of England, who, in a bid to produce a Catholic heir and resist the ‘wind’ blowing from Protestantism, supposedly smuggled another man’s child into the birthing chamber. If he did, the plan didn’t work: like the cradle, the House of Stuart was doomed to fall.

What is the darkest nursery rhyme?
Goosey Goosey Gander Well one version of this popular rhyme had some very disturbing lines in it, reflecting a time when Catholic priests had to say their forbidden Latin prayers in secret: ’There I met an old man, who wouldn’t say his prayers, so I took him by his left leg and threw him down the stairs.
One theory holds that they represent three Protestant loyalists who were accused of plotting against the Catholic Queen Mary in the 16th century. She didn’t cut off their tales, though. Instead she burnt them at the stake.

The story goes that a shot from a Parliamentary cannon succeeded in damaging the wall beneath ‘Humpty Dumpty’, causing it to tumble to the ground. And despite the Royalists (‘all the King’s men’) attempting to raise Humpty Dumpty back up again, it was so heavy that they ‘couldn’t put Humpty together again.’
The rhyme ’Mary, Mary Quite Contrary’ might be about Bloody Mary, daughter of Henry VIII, and her murder of Protestants. Some say that the ‘garden’ is a reference to the graveyards that were filling with martyred Protestants under her reign, while the ‘silver bells’ represent thumbscrews and ‘cockleshells’ are instruments of torture attached to male genitals. And those pretty maids? They could be the people lined up to be executed. Food for thought.

Behind that chirpy melody of ’Three blind mice’ is a tale about a vicious, knife-wielding farmer’s wife. But was she really a farmer’s wife? And were her helpless victims really mice?
But behind their light and fluffy exterior, many tell dark tales of death, disease, violence and religious persecution. Here is our guide to some of the darkest nursery rhymes of all time.Dating back hundreds of years, nursery rhymes have long played a huge part in our early development. They help to introduce us to language, they support reading skills, in many cases they give children their first taste of music.

What does 3 mean in fairy tales?
Three is the smallest recognisable pattern, which makes it easy to remember. A plot based on “threes” also creates suspense more effectively than events occurring in twos or fours. Memorable tales were more likely to be repeated from person to person and survive in the oral tradition.
Apparently ’Here we go round the Mulberry Bush’ is actually about Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire, commemorating the walks around the prison yard that the female prisoners and their children would take every day. Some insist that the titular mulberry bush is the same one that continued to grow in the prison grounds until 2017, when it died of a beetle infestation and canker, a year after it was shortlisted for the Tree of the Year prize. Whether or not that’s true, the prison, which dates back to 1594, has chosen a Mulberry Bush as its emblem. Which seems appropriate.

Is the three blind mice pattern bullish or bearish?
While Brandt describes it as the “three blind mice” chart pattern, the pattern highlighted is identical to the three black crows chart pattern. Notably, It is a bearish pattern that indicates the reversal of an uptrend.
How could anything with the word ‘goosey’ in it be described as sinister? Well one version of this popular rhyme had some very disturbing lines in it, reflecting a time when Catholic priests had to say their forbidden Latin prayers in secret: ‘There I met an old man, who wouldn’t say his prayers, so I took him by his left leg and threw him down the stairs.’

Though the attack has never been proven, a collection of Old Norse poems written in 1230 contains a verse that sounds much like the nursery rhyme, translating as ‘London Bridge is broken down. Gold is won, and bright renown.’ So maybe…
They believe that the ‘ring-a-round the rosie’ is a coded reference to the red circular rash common in certain forms of plague, and that the ‘posies’ were the flowers that people carried around to fend off the illness. As for the ‘a-tishoo’ and ‘we all fall down’, it doesn’t take long to figure out what that might mean.

Why do umpires not like three blind mice?
Playing “Three Blind Mice”—well, it’s “just not done,” O’Connor says. While he admits that “from an outsider’s view it’s funny,” to an umpire “it’s a derogatory thing that’s only going to incite the crowd. … It’s not cute when you’re the guy on the field and you don’t know what the reaction’s going to be.”
What is that ‘chopper to chop off your head’ all about? Some say it’s Henry VIII’s marital issues, and the way he went about solving them. However, it seems that those last three lines of the rhyme ’oranges and lemons’ weren’t originally in the nursery rhyme, so it’s more likely that they’re referring to events at Newgate Prison, which once stood on the current site of the Old Bailey, next to St Sepulchre’s Church (hence ‘the bells of Old Bailey’ in the rhyme).The meaning of ’London Bridge is Falling Down’ has long been debated. Many believe that it refers to the state of disrepair into which London Bridge fell after the Great Fire of London in 1666.

Among the various interpreters of ’Jack and Jill’, some claim that it’s about a young couple in Somerset who would sneak up a hill to do more than fetch a pail of water. According to the story, the girl died in childbirth, and, apparently, the local surname of Gilson is thought to derive from Gill’s son.

Not all modern folklorists are convinced by the plague-origin theory, with some suggesting the rhyme ’Ring around a Rosies’ is actually about the ban on dancing among Protestants, and the way that people went about circumnavigating it. Still, it’s certainly the spookiest interpretation, so for the purposes of this article, let’s go with it.

Last year, the alliance recorded 117 pups born in a record 31 litters. Many of the mice will be reintroduced to the wild this spring, the alliance said.The mouse once had a range stretching from Los Angeles south to the Tijuana River Valley but the population plunged after 1932 because of human encroachment and habitat destruction, the alliance said.

Is three blind mice a fairy tale?
Three Blind Mice (Favorite Fairy Tales): Cosgrove, Stephen: 9780824982720: Books.
A Pacific pocket mouse named Pat has received the Guinness World Record as the oldest living mouse in human care at the ripe age of 9 years and 209 days, the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance announced after a certification ceremony. (Feb. 10)

What is the Guinness World Record mouse?
A Pacific pocket mouse named Pat — after “Star Trek” actor Patrick Stewart — received the Guinness approval Wednesday as the oldest living mouse in human care at the ripe age of 9 years and 209 days, the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance announced after a certification ceremony.
“This recognition is so special for our team, and is significant for the species,” said Debra Shier, who established and oversees the conservation program. “It’s indicative of the dedication and incredible care we as an organization provide for each species, from the largest to the very smallest.”

The mouse was thought to be extinct for 20 years until tiny, isolated populations were rediscovered in 1994 in Dana Point in Orange County but the species remains endangered, the alliance said.Though it doesn’t receive the publicity of larger and more charismatic species, the Pacific pocket mouse is critical to its ecosystem because the mice disperse the seeds of native plants and their digging encourages plant growth, the alliance said.The radio play was first broadcast on the BBC in 1947. Agatha Christie then adapted the 30-minute radio play in 1948 to a short story, published in May in Cosmopolitan magazine, and later in the 1950 US collection Three Blind Mice and Other Stories. The short story version was never published in the UK on Christie’s insistence that it should not clash with the 1952 stage adaptation, famously renamed The Mousetrap. As long as the adaptation ran in London’s West End (as it has for over 60 years) the short story wasn’t to be published.

How many blind mice ran after the farmer's wife?
Three blind mice Three blind mice! See how they run! They all ran after the farmer’s wife, Who cut off their tails with a carving knife. Did you ever see such a thing in your life As three blind mice?
The idea for the radio play came, as was often the case with Christie, from a real-life news story in 1945 about two brothers abused in foster care, one of whom died as a result. It was a case that shocked the nation and resulted in the changing of the laws surrounding foster care a couple of years later.When Queen Mary was asked what she would like for her 80th birthday, she requested a new story from one of her favourite writers, Agatha Christie. The BBC got in touch with Christie and asked if she would like to write a short radio play for the Queen, which she happily obliged to and created Three Blind Mice. She donated her fee of one hundred Guineas to the Southport Infirmary Children’s Toy Fund. Unfortunately no recording of the original performance exists.

We unlock the potential of millions of people worldwide. Our assessments, publications and research spread knowledge, spark enquiry and aid understanding around the world. Hearing a story has a more stimulating effect on our brain. When we hear a story, our brains react as if we are experiencing the events in real life. For example, the empathy centres in our brain come to life when we hear about the protagonists’ sadness; on the other hand, olfactory and motor cortex can be activated by descriptions of smell or activities. In this sense, stories transport us to alternative worlds and our brains enjoy it. Three is the smallest recognisable pattern, which makes it easy to remember. A plot based on “threes” also creates suspense more effectively than events occurring in twos or fours. Memorable tales were more likely to be repeated from person to person and survive in the oral tradition. Many of these fairy tales we love reading even today. Notice how traditional folk tales often feature sequences of threes:So, we know that fairy tales are memorable, easy to repeat and engage listeners on a deeper intellectual and emotional level. How can we use this science in class? Here’s a simple recipe for a rich reading experience.

And, the icing on the cake is that the students’ reading adventure can continue beyond school. Encourage your students to talk about their favourite fairy tales at home. We hope you enjoyed reading.

Download the story of the Gingerbread Girl’s Adventure and try the ideas in class. Once your students are familiar with the story you can raise the challenge and introduce story theatre. As the story is read (by yourself or another student), the rest of the class mime the actions, re-tell the story using prompts (word cards or illustrations), until finally, they can narrate the story, act out scenes with dialogue and props for a full theatre production!
In the surrounding landscape the patterns include shapes of animals, objects or plants. Our faces form recognisable patterns. Stories too are a type of pattern, a pattern of events or information. Our brains derive meaning from these patterns, making sense of information, predicting sequences of events and the roles of participants.

According to scientists, stories are the oldest form of human communication, dating back to prehistoric times. More than half of our daily conversations are around exchanging stories or gossip. So, what makes stories so popular? The answer is in a pattern. Our brains have evolved to prefer working with patterns as an important survival skill.

Thanks to modern fMRI technology we also know that stories stimulate the human brain in a way that is different to other types of linguistic input. A common conversation activates two parts of the brain: that involved in listening (auditory cortex) and that concerned with deciphering language (Werner’s area).

Nu har man löst lite av tristessen under gråvädersdagarna. Den där Hasselskog som nämts var visst med i högen med en stor vit sticker:Hi-Fi Demo Disco Special 45varv Indian Summer och Whole Lotta Shaki´n Going´On. Baksida förtäljer att: Skivan du håller i handen är graverad på den modernaste graverutrustning som finn i dag. Ljudstyrkan ligger betydligt över den normerade skivnivån. ”Allt detta för att ge dej möjlighet att höra hur bra Hi-Fi ljud på grammofonskiva låter, avspelat på dagens högkvalitativa stereoanläggningar” De´ni, det var 1976 och ett direkt löfte från AB Electra´s Cutting Room.

K-man: Direct Disco var också med men den är förpassad, då jag inte uppskattar varken musikstil eller brallorna som skär in i baken. Måste kännas hemskt att gå om kring sådär!

Thelma Houston & Pressure Cooker I Got The Music In Me är en klassiker och var kanske det verkliga genombrottsalbumet för Sheffield Lab. Bör i fint skick vara mycket eftertraktad på samlarmarknaden. Ett höjdaralbum!
De andra 4 skivorna jag listade tillhör de absolut mest kända av amerikanska direksnitt (direktgraverade skivor) och de låter mycket bra även om man inte kan förneka att speciellt Scheffield Lab har ett visst sound – som Dave Grusin tog med sig till sitt eget bolag GRP (Grusin Rosen Productions).Midnight Sugar är en helt fantastisk skiva och den mest kända av de som TBM gav ut och den finns/fanns även som nyutgåva på 45 varv och den finns också som två utgåvor på First Impression Music (XRCD och SACD).

Hjälp mej att reda ut en bunt nyförvärv i fint skick. En massa udda saker som jag inte har en aning om. Är inte ,eller i varje fall fram till nu, varit någon diggare av denna musikstil, därav mitt okunnande. Känner inte till många av de udda skivbolagen: Tre blinda möss, neon o.s.v. En diger klassisk bunt finns också med en god del ”direktinsprutade” inspelningar. Ett dussin olika test skivor av den mest udda art. Hjälp sökes, tackar på förhand.
– Detta är säkert Mobile Fidelity’s Utgåva av London CS7110 som släpptes 1979. Som jag skrev i ”Vinylskolan” är London den amerikanska utgåvan av Decca och denna inspelning är från tiden precis innan Decca köptes upp av Polygram (1980). MFSL tyckte väl att det var en speciellt bra inspelning/tolkningAtt Three Blind Mice ligger på samma skivbolag som Eggstone och det hörs väldigt tydligt på denna singel. Om jag skulle få uppdraget att likna Three Blind Mice vid något annat band så skulle det första bli just Eggstone men jag kan också höra lite av Cardigans. En väldigt lyckad kombination i och för sig men det känns som att man har hört dessa båda låtar Baby Boy och Under the sun en gång tidigare. Men för det är ju inte bandet i sig dåliga. De kan den musik de spelar och de spelar den mycket bra. Om de bara hittade en egen stil så skulle det bli bättre. Fans at Jackie Robinson Ballpark immediately booed the fully sighted Seneca, who Deadspin later deemed “the most sensitive umpire in baseball history.” The unpaid intern, who was fined $25 by the Florida State League for getting thrown out of the game, parlayed his infamy into a handful of media appearances. He even made it to SportsCenter. The trouble for umpires is that we only hear about it when they pitch a fit. Ignoring “Three Blind Mice” doesn’t warrant blog posts, sports radio segments, or mentions from Paul Harvey. But it’s worth saying that not all officials have skin as thin as a Pirates-era Barry Bonds. There are indeed umps who possess an unexpected ability to take a ribbing without retaliating. Or maybe there’s another explanation. Perhaps it’s just that their hearing is as bad as their eyesight.The fan may have been a part of the Dodgers Sym-Phony, a ragtag band that kept up a running commentary on the on-field action with a rotating cast of horns and drums. “Three Blind Mice” was long part of the Sym-Phony’s repertoire, along with “The Hearse Song” (“The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out/ The worms play pinochle in your snout/ They eat your eyes, they eat your nose/ They eat the jelly between your toes”).

In 1941, the Cubs expanded the possibility of song-based heckling by introducing the first ballpark organ. Though Wrigley Field ivory tickler Roy Nelson stuck to friendlier fare, the musicians weren’t as kind in Brooklyn. In May 1942, Ebbets Field’s Gladys Goodding welcomed Bill Stewart, Ziggy Sears, and Tom Dunn to the field with umps’ least-favorite nursery rhyme. “It was a request number from a fan,” UPI reported.
In the cases when an organist or, more commonly these days, a button-pushing intern does get heaved, the question of jurisdiction always comes up. And the answer is: Yes, they can do that. The PBUC’s umpire manual says, “Organists are not to play in a manner that will incite spectators to react in a negative fashion to umpires’ decisions” and stipulates that a violation “can result in the umpire dismissing the violator from his or her duties for the remainder of the game.” Counter to the minor-league law of the land, MLB’s official rules are less explicit. Though there’s no specific mention of music, they do grant umpires the “authority to order a player, coach, manager or club officer or employee to do or refrain from doing anything which affects the administering of these rules, and to enforce the prescribed penalties.” Think of it as baseball’s necessary and proper clause.While Gooding and Melgard heeded the warnings of their leagues, Vince Lascheid, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ organist from 1970 to 2003, preferred to live dangerously. Though the NHL ordered him to cut the song from his repertoire, he said he still snuck it in every now and then to “see what would happen.” Nothing ever did.Consider Mario Seneca. Last month, the minor league umpire ejected a Daytona Cubs intern after the 21-year-old University of Illinois student dared to play “Three Blind Mice” over the park’s public address system in protest of a close call. As you can hear in the video below, Seneca points to the sky and shouts “You’re gone!” The reaction of the Cubs’ broadcaster: “That is absolutely awesome!”Seneca, meanwhile, has made no public comments, allowing the sports media to make like an angry manager and rain spittle on his expressionless face. Justin Klemm, executive director of the Professional Baseball Umpire Corp., which governs minor league umps, says this silence is intentional. “Mario has decided not to talk about this and we’re respecting his wishes,” Klemm told me.For the men in blue, ignoring “Three Blind Mice” is easier said than done. Goodding eventually stopped playing the song. The reason: A formal complaint from an umpire led the league office to tell her to cut it out.

Just because umpires can eject rabble-rousers doesn’t mean they always do. O’Connor says sometimes a warning is all that’s called for. “You’ve got to handle the situation as it comes up,” he says, denying that there’s a strict rule for umps who hear those telltale tones. “Every situation is unique when you’re officiating.”

Go see a special live performance of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen in Washington, D.C. on Monday Oct. 1. Click here for more information and to buy tickets.“The Brooklyn Sym-Phony used to be the worst for us—they would always play ‘The Three Blind Mice’ when we’d walk out on the field,” Beans Reardon said in a 1949 interview. “And that would eat up a feller like [umpire] Babe Pinelli. I said to the Babe, just ignore ’em, and he did and they stopped after awhile. Fans like you to growl back at ’ em.” Despite the quotidian nature of these vision-related insults, “Three Blind Mice” has always had a special power to enrage. Umpires have been chucking anyone with the temerity to so much as hum the song since at least 1936. According to an Associated Press report from July of that year, umpire and Norman Rockwell subject Beans Reardon “chased [pitcher] Jim Weaver off the Pittsburgh bench” for singing the song, proving that if catchers wear the tools of ignorance, umpires don the tools of sensitivity. O’Connor insists that snapping on Snapp was the right call, and not just because he’d already warned him against playing the song. Playing “Three Blind Mice”—well, it’s “just not done,” O’Connor says. While he admits that “from an outsider’s view it’s funny,” to an umpire “it’s a derogatory thing that’s only going to incite the crowd. … It’s not cute when you’re the guy on the field and you don’t know what the reaction’s going to be.”

Meanwhile, in the Midwest, legendary Chicago Stadium organist Al Melgard was earning a reputation as the Gladys Goodding of hockey. Often credited as the first to match music to the action on the ice, Melgard played “Clancy Lowered the Boom” when referee Francis “King” Clancy called a penalty and “Don’t Cry Joe” when an opposing coach argued a call. He’d also welcome referees onto the ice with “Three Blind Mice,” a practice that continued, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported in 1958, until then-NHL president Clarence Campbell “pleaded” with Melgard to stop playing the song because it “was bad for the morale of the referee and linesmen.”
Those are the modern words to “Three Blind Mice,” that pleasant enough English nursery rhyme that we all remember from our youth. Back in the early 17 century, when the folk round was first published, that language was completely different. Words like scrapte and licke made it seem more sinister, as did the purported reference to Queen Mary ordering the execution of defiant bishops. Today, the song has lost those sharp edges for everyone but one small group: those beleaguered souls who make a living calling balls and strikes.If Seneca won’t defend himself, Kevin O’Connor will. An umpire evaluator for Major League Baseball who spent 10 years behind the plate himself, O’Connor had a similar brush with notoriety in 1985. As he tells it, O’Connor was working a game in the Florida State League when a coach got in another ump’s face about an inning-ending call at first base. “That’s when Wilbur started playing ‘Three Blind Mice,’ ” O’Connor says. “I threw him out immediately and I was backed by the league 100 percent because I told him earlier in the season he couldn’t do that.”

Wilbur was Wilbur Snapp, a ballpark organist whose quick thinking and subsequent heaving won him mentions from Willard Scott and Paul Harvey, along with requests to sign autographs as “Wilbur Snapp, Three Blind Mice organist.” When he died 18 years after he got the thumb, the New York Times saw fit to run his obituary: “Wilbur Snapp, 83, Organist Ejected by Ump.”

The second Blind Mouse hates to be intelligent, having been blinded by truth, I suppose. He has a deadly fear of seeming highbrow. This afflicts men more than women in this country, where the kingdom of the mind is largely in the hands of the Amazons. ‘We are each of,’ says Plotinus, ‘an intellig
ible world,’ but it is considered very ill-bred to admit it. Thus, if someone is discussing a play or a picture or a book, he will avoid fine discriminations and feel it enough to distinguish between the ‘swell’ and the ‘lousy.’ There must be some things in the world which are neither swell nor lousy: for instance, the novels of Jane Austen, the pictures of Hubert Robert, the music of Gluck, the Institut de France. But the second Blind Mouse does not find them. Or, if he does, he is ashamed to say so. For the discovery of even one of the grosser nuances might be a mark of intelligence; and that would degrade him in the eyes not only of his fellows but of himself.
The third Blind Mouse is more pathetic than the others. He is the person who is afraid to be himself. By the time a person has reached maturity his character is pretty well determined and most people by then have access to their inner natures. Yet, instead of taking stock and being faithful to their real desires and abilities, most of them try to be anything other than what they are. Here again social pressure has its influence; there are certain approved occupations in every group and it is next to impossible to persuade anyone to engage in any other. Mothers, fathers, rich relatives, teachers, clergymen, friends, professional writers — everyone is ready and eager to advise the young on what they should be. But they already are. And all the advice in the world won’t turn a girl who really wants to be a woman into a happy archæologist or a highly paid secretary or a musician. In the case of girls, womanhood is definitely looked down upon; a woman who is in love with her husband and happy in educating her children feels disgraced. How often one hears remarks like these: ‘What a pity Clara has done nothing with her music!’ ‘ Poor Helen has n’t written a line since her marriage!’ ‘Mary used to be the life of the Current Events Club, but now it’s nothing but John and the children.’ No one stops to think that Clara and Helen and Mary are much better off — and society is too —• than would be the case were they playing Liszt in a concert hall or banging out short stories on a typewriter or delivering ‘reports’ on the Future of Democracy.
