Let it go, let it go, let it go

O.K. I've eliminated the link to the music on the society of composers site.
They wanted me to resubscribe 'cause my dues are 3 mos late but their site motor or whatever you call it hasn't worked for a while and besides, they cost money, and I could only post four mp3s (MySpace hosts six and Facebook an unlimited number)
So what do I need them for?
Same music.

I have linked a new music site however, check it out.

  • Special Christmas Music from Ballard


  • Inspirational music that inspired my youth.
    In an inspirational manner.

    Snow here, it's quiet for awhile as very few cars are rushing along Rainier Blvd at the moment, although soon enough clanky chain music will be rattling past my window.

    Maybe, later in the day, I can walk to the bottom of the hill and watch all the folks try to slip and slide upwards as mother nature insists on sliding them downwards.





    And now I'm going to go practice my logrhythmics exercise program.
    Wherein I assume the pose of a log and wait out the season with a blanket over my knees and a book over my face.

    Christmas sans caffeine.

    The composer's site should be paying you dues for the privilege of posting your compositions, enit?

    Somehow I suspected that Stan Boreson, who is still alive I assume, would have something to do with it. For the droppers-in, Stan Boreson had a children's show here in Seattle in the 50's, and early 60's. He played an accordian, and sang in a zanny Norweigan/Swedish accent. He had a mascot dog, No-Mo, for No-Motion, cuz it was a Bassett hound that just lay there for the whole show, and a take off on the popular hydroplane of that era, the Slo-Mo. The snippets on his site are hilarious. Thanks for linking to them, for showing a true Christmas spirit.

    Well, it's about time you got some snow accumulation. We've got a couple of inches down here in the South Sound. On the local TV news this morning they showed a gridlock on ALL the freeways, jack-knifed semis, roll overs; like the world gone mad. Winter is wonderful.

    Do you still have that Santa's helper hat you once had? You should wear that when you walk to the bottom of the hill to taunt the traffic.

    The picture, once again, looks like Arizona or New Mexico, but you will probably inform us it is in Oregon too. A cliff is a cliff is a cliff, I guess.

    Melva got another day off as her school district declared another snow day. Great for now, but when she has to make them up in late June, she will get cranky.

    Holy Gobs of Goo, there are 98 fricking comments on yesterday's posting. What's up with that?

    This whole week the comments sections have been buzzing like a space heater at two in the morning. It is refreshing that Lane allows space for we celebs to air our woes and toes.

    I used some of my best quotes on yesterday's posting. I, for one, am exhausted. I wonder how Leonard Cohen, Lawrence Frelinghetti, E.E.Cummings, Edgar Poo, Oscar Wilde, Marilyn Hacker, Richard Brautigan, Raymond Carver, Sherman Alexie, Charles Bukowski, Bertolt Brecht, George Armstrong Custer, Tiny Tim, Elton John, Truman Capote, O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake, Tab Hunter, Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter, Richard Chamberlain, Pablo Neruda, and Allen Ginsberg, to name a few commentors, feel?

    Yeah pal, I hate it when the putzes misspell my name. Bukowski is a proud Polish handle, besides it demonstrates the lax way clerics or readers are doing their jobs.

    Paintings may communicate even better for people, because they are lazy; they can look at a painting with less effort than it takes to read a poem.

    Larry, the trick is to compose a painting abstractly so that the viewer has no idea in the world what it means.

    As you can tell by reading my postings, music is now my life. So I couldn't agree with you more. Not so much so that I will pay good money to belong to the stinking Society of Composers site however.

    Hallo, Lane & Glenn,
    Glenn's first paragraph in his first comment here says it like it should be; when East Germany was still Socialist, composers of Lane's quality automatically became (free!!) members of "The Composers' Union" (Komponistenverband).
    And when the composer was previously a blue collar worker (like an automechanic) he was treated with special respect in that "Worker and Farmer State" (Arbeiter und Bauern Staat)!!
    Tschüß,
    Comrade Anonomann

    That's impressive Anono, but did he also get to buy four houses and collect enough rent to be able to compose his own music on his own terms?
