Today, Tomorrow, and last June.

Got two more scores in the mail.
As Woody Allen once sorta said,
"I'm not afraid of rejection,
I just don't want to be there when it happens"


Just finished watching "Make 'em Laugh" on KCTS
and have come to the realization that Bugs Bunny must have been Jewish.

And therefore beings as how I'm not as sure footed a fool as he,
I must not be.

Even though my Grandma's name was Rosen.

Actually I am more my father's child which I believe is Caledonian.

Scots and Jews, eh?

Took the family out to dinner once,
in the end the waiter paid the bill.

Zing!

........

Waiting for the results to come in,
Are you an audience or an oil painting?

Pow!

I just flew in from the bathroom,
I have toilet paper stuck to my shoe

Anything for a laugh...

How about funny faces?
Look at this, just like Harpo.

Or this, get it?
What do you mean, boo?

Awright, awright, my five minuets are up, I'm leavin'
I told my agent I didn't want to play this hick town anyway.

You rubes probably don't know what a minuet is, anyway.



Yeah, neither do I.

I wanted to watch MAKE 'EM LAUGH on PBS too, but couldn't get around to it. Was it well put together, or just the standard old clips of funny folks over the ages?

My first in-laws were named Mermelstein, Milton & Marilyn, both dead now. My practice wife, Renea, felt it was rude and disrespectful that I studied the Torah and was learning Hebrew. Go figure.

Your stand up routine needs a little polishing, enit? By the way, how many minuets are there in an hour?

Gee a nice response of 51 commenters on your last posting, capped off nicely by the incomperable Anonomann. Don't get spoiled, though, it was probably an anomoly, anomaley, atomeley, or some such thing.

Over two hours my dentist drilled and poked and proded and tweeked and twisted in my pie hole. I have a sore jaw this morning. Maybe George F. tried to knock my ass out while I slept.

This is some crazy cyber crap, enit? I actually comment as myself and I get the Anonymous moniker like any schlupp out there. That settles it. I give up on trying to wrestle respect from this piece of digital hardwired bitchiness.

That is true, Vincenso, but you colorful characters out there in the ozone of cyberness get to say the rudest and craziest comments ever. I sort of have to behave myself, since I am fully identified by my "pitcher".

Soon there might be another swirl of anonymous activity, more bickering, more back stabbing, more gay and lesbian chatter, more political machinations, more rock and roll news, more insights, more horseshit ALL landing on Savant.

Most cultured young women of Emily's day learned to play the piano. It helped out at boring parties, and the radio hadn't been invented yet.

What was Anonmann making reference to? Does David send out his student's work for consideration here and there? That is cool. The return of your scores were the ones he sent out, or ones you sent out?

I put scores in the mail and send them to organizations who call for them in hopes that they will be selected for performance or prize money or some damn thing but mainly just to have something to do with the seven hours that I spend awake every tedious, boring day.

Hey world, it is Friday, ready or not. I have a medical treatment today, my first time of cutting down the (2) treatments monthly to just one. Kind of scary, but necessary to get my mind right.

It is good that you promulgate your own work, reinforcing your own creativity with the insane hope that someone out there will recognize the genius in your music and in you.

I swear, FFTR, has become the site for all the First People. Butch has worked the hell out of Joy Harjo's poems, and prose, and then got down with Navarro Scott Momaday, Peter Blue Cloud, and even Leslie Silko. Indian poetry is enjoying a Renaissance, they say, so get over to FFTR today and enjoy it.

It is OK for a white guy, a very much Anglo, to love Native American spiritualism, and poetry, and lifestyle, but it does make one wonder if Glenn is just yet another Indian wannabe. Like Burt Reynolds, Cher, and Johnny Cash, he does talk about having Cherokee ancestors. Those Cherokee were a lusty bunch it seems.

Now that Jannie has produced her CD, and Joy Harjo has done two of them, and Alex is working on her official second one, when will we be able to bou the Doug Palmer CD, maybe entitled REDWING RHAPSODIES?

Well we could bou it, but probably we will have to "buy" it. Are there not places that will produce CD's for you, assisting with the artwork and such?

Maybe if you started riding a motorcycle again, dressed up in leather, wore Ray-Bans, dyed your hair blond, and hung out in Pioneer Square playing your six-string, you would build up a bigger fan base, Doug.

Hallo, Glenn!
No, I did not mean Lane's composition prof. David, sends out Lane's scores for performance, though that would be GREAT!! Some professors and teachers do do this for theor more talented students (and Lane IS that!!), but I don't know if David does. What I DID mean is that Lane shoild get David's judgement as to whether (in DAVID's opinion) ths score is "ready" for submission, but the FINAL judge MUST be LANE!!

Hallo, Lane!
Getting scores returned that you have submitted is FAR better than getting NO scores back because you NEVER submitted tham!!!!
My maxim has always been: "Nothing ventured, nothing gained!!"!! Who knows unless you submit something if what you withheld might have been what would have won the prize (or, better, performance) that time!!??!!
Keep submitting; the next time might be the "BINGO" time!! Your work IS getting better and BETTER, especially your most recent String Quartet!! It is really "professional-quality"!!!
