... decades later with punk rock ... We also have to take into account the historical implications of the imaginary journalistic profession . From a musician's point of view, I don't think anyone wants to give these self-appointed arbiters of "taste" too much credit re: influencing the pu...

And don't forget, "ano" is a possible root for "year", thus: "Tristano" - "sad year". To make matters more intriguing, LT's mother's maiden name was: "Malano" - "bad year". I have been told that he used to joke about it, "sad year and ...

Yes, the Sermon must stand as it is ... and may it stand like those monuments on Easter Island have been standing The urgency is owi...

another wrap

Lets also tie one of my loose ends, the religion question. I think it applies because your book suggests change . And I put forth the proposition that religion stands in the way of any such change . It was culture shock: Moving from a reasonably tolerant area to a socially retarded one at a young ag...
