    As I said elsewhere, I am not a fan of that atonal stuff because it sounds to me like my anxiety feels, and I don’t need that. I may be unsophisticated or a Bear of Very Little Brain, I don’t care. Give me JS Bach any day.

    Love the John Cage reference. He visited my little community college, while I was a rabble-rousing young reporter for the college newspaper. Needless to say, I had great fun writing a review about the emperor with no clothes. I felt like Edward R Murrow but it probably would pain me to read it now.
