Stepping Away from the Table


After an exhausting 16 or so comments on my quite reasonable concern over the President Designate's fractured take on education (including, apparently, Lou Reed's gardner--who might be Bill O'Riley) I think I shall refrain from more political commentary, esp. considering most misread what I wrote, or at least failed to answer the question. Besides, I've got music to write--which is, I am still convinced, a reasonable thing to be doing.

So this is me, stepping away for a bit to handle some pesky deadlines. The Odd Appetite concert was great--good music, excellently played (in an unforgiving room, alas)--and there will be plenty more to report when I return.

Until then, a few weeks hence, enjoy the sunshine, New Yorkers!

Did you know that Galapagos, Odd A's venue, used to be a mayonaise factory? I forgot to mention that last night when you were talking about the room. Not much in the way of accoustics, and distracting noise-leak from the band playing on the stage in the other room, but still a great show.

I bet you couldn't write something as complex and original as Lou Reed. Sorry. He's the only true American musical genius of any era. I don't know if he as a gardner, but I know he's got all sorts of helpers, nannies, and surrogates. But, God, what a goddamned GENIUS he is on the guitar. Wow.

You have not yet acknowledged Lou Reed as the greatest living musician/composer. If you do not do so within a week, there will be drastic consequences. There are chords he invented that are still used today and without which we would not have music as good as we do.

So do it! Now!
