Incoming Musical Debris from Planet Pitchfork


Joanna Newsom is notoriously mysterious; she's not the type you'll find Tweeting about her life, or even giving very many interviews. She seems to exist outside of the traditional music industry hype cycle, to a certain degree. So it's a nice surprise to discover that she will perform on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" next Friday, March 5. Newsom will perform "Soft as Chalk" from the recently Best New Music-bestowed Have One on Me.

ALL THINGS MUST PASS


Like other members of the Beatles, George Harrison came from a working class family in Liverpool in northwest England. He was born on February 25, 1943 and died at the age of 58 on November 29, 2001. Sometimes characterized as the “quiet Beatle,” he wrote such Beatles classics as Something, Here Comes The Sun and While My Guitar Gently Weeps .

Learning to Learn : John Cage's Lessons


john cage: some rules for students and teachers

RULE ONE: Find a place you trust, and then try trusting it for awhile.

RULE TWO: General duties of a student - pull everything out of your teacher; pull everything out of your fellow students.

RULE THREE: General duties of a teacher - pull everything out of your students.

RULE FOUR: Consider everything an experiment.

RULE FIVE: be self-disciplined - this means finding someone wise or smart and choosing to follow them. To be disciplined is to follow in a good way. To be self-disciplined is to follow in a better way.

RULE SIX: Nothing is a mistake. There's no win and no fail, there's only make.

RULE SEVEN: The only rule is work. If you work it will lead to something. It's the people who do all of the work all of the time who eventually catch on to things.

RULE EIGHT: Don't try to create and analyze at the same time. They're different processes.

RULE NINE: Be happy whenever you can manage it. Enjoy yourself. It's lighter than you think.

RULE TEN: "We're breaking all the rules. Even our own rules. And how do we do that? By leaving plenty of room for X quantities." (John Cage)

HINTS: Always be around. Come or go to everything. Always go to classes. Read anything you can get your hands on. Look at movies carefully, often. Save everything - it might come in handy later.

Dream Date with Scarlet and Bob

Prehensile

When the winter sends the snows between our doors

The music pours incense through corridors

The white horizon starts to roar

The Spanish chord of a distant train

The engine of an afternoon

approaching, bearing thoughts of yours,

Under quilts and pelts and freezing rain.

And if your windows reflect on mine

Our ricochet glimpses glint and shine

To numb the pains of temporary time.

Every crystal bud presages

A sanctuary hint of August's massage

As thawed and fresh unfrozen we meet

In adoration unadorned.
