I meant to make a laudatory post last week to the effect that, where other than The New Yorker might you find a smart, funny, informative article on a literary figure as obscure as Alfred Lord Dunsany

I took that test when we applied to adopt! Picture was from the 30's: any idiot could tell that you were supposed to translate the stallion and the shirtless man in the picture into something sexual.

Mitchell is right on this precise point, though: as a classical music fan, I find its use in classical venues to be an outrage.

The only thing that can be embarrassing is if they give a show and no one buys tickets. As long as there are fans with money to throw at them, they'll keep on. Wouldn't you, if you were still raking in the $$$?

 

(I have to admit to barely knowing what Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, et al sound like. I was never their adoring audience nor do I hate them. I am totally indifferent to them. I'm sure that breaks their hearts.)

joel still does live shows. it's recording that he's given up on. i don't think anyone would have mourned if springsteen had done the same right around /tunnel of love/.

I'd like to think that the next Springsteen CD will mark a return to greatness, but I think you are pretty right on. He and his band do put on great live shows nonetheless.

Technical question: is anyone else having trouble with the website while using Firefox? I just was checking that I was linked, and nothing about that came up on my screen. I had to use Google Chrome to get on. What was esp. strange was that the tech person I spoke with said she was using Firefox and had no problem.
