What happened to BT? To pass the time until he posts I offer the following review. Hey Marv, Home computer died! So until I get another I will just be stoppin in the library for minimal stuff. Its not the most inspiring place to expound philosophically. I sorta feel like we have hijacked Keith's si...

In spite of BT and my manful attempts previously to distinguish art for art from protest, I fear they're indistinguishable. Therefore, the best I can do is prove that BT's heavy investment in art for art is quite as subjective as mine in protest art. One last thing before I state my case. Remember,...

Here's an Easter egg in memory of Lennie. It's a preface to an unobtainable GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JESUS which I self-published in 1982. It's entitled Lucky Toss Nets God. Nice segue to what I want to say. Its got just about everything in it. Symbols and symbolism. Idolatry. Theology and political sci...

Owing to sluggish sales, I feel I should plug my book. ... Sermon On The Flats: The Egalitarian Alternative To Fortune Worship (psst press). <end of commercial> Yes, this is the Sermon thread after all. Its about time we got back to it.

The gathering at Lennie's studio occurs BEFORE the overdub is an issue. For the record in question has just been released and few have even heard it not to mention reviewed it. If Leonard Bernstein has acquired a copy, it's because he's an enthusiastic fan of Lennie's. Leonard is aware of the techn...

This is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to any events or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental. The Evil Musician The EVIL MUSICIAN was hiding out in his SECRET LABORATORY, with all of his SECRET tape machines. "Heh heh heh, I will FOOL THE WORLD!", he laughed to himself wit...

BT, there's winning through denial and winning through adoption. One wins through denial by simply brushing aside an opinion you don't share. Each to his or her own opinion, right? Winning through adoption is pretending that the opposed opinion is yours and proving yourself wrong. Would you please ...

The overdubbing thing comes up a lot. If they really felt that way, they could have just boycotted the multitracked records. But its amusing how the same industry puts Les Paul on a pedestal and calls him a genius for doing the very same thing. (And I'm not knocking Les Paul - I caught one of his gi...
