Most Ridiculous Quote of the Week

"There is absolutely nothing artificial about Glenn Gould's playing."

--Bruno Monsaingeon

Polite response: a certain stylization is actually somewhat characteristic of his work. Less polite response: I mean come on, what kind of Kool Aid are you drinking? Is there anything NOT artificial about his playing?


Favorite Meal of the Week

Runner-Up Favorite Quote of the Week

A photographer friend is looking desperately for an apartment, and has been in email contact with all sorts of persons to that end. He received the following philosophical missive which seems to stray off the subject of subletting considerably:

"Thanks for giving the world nice photos and for being Gay. I'm not Gay, but I support full Gays rights, and I wish that I would wake up in the morning and find the 95 percent of the world population has turned Gay. The world would for sure be a better place. This might save the world because it's too over populated and mother nature doesn't have a chance."

What's wrong with "artificial" anyway? After all, the root of "artificial" is "art".

maybe he meant that if he woke up and 95% of the guys were gay, he'd finally have a shot at any woman he wanted.

i love egg salad, but i would've topped it off with a glass of scotch.

try egg salad with watercress instead of iceberg, i think that would go better with sour mash

The egg salad sounds yummy, but I wouldn't dare order such a sandwich from the corner coffee shop.

Does Gould's grunting count as being non-artificial?

Ellie said...

Oh my...

More often than not this blog gives me a headache. I'm still trying to sort out if that's a good thing or not. :)

I vote for egg salad with a decent cup of English tea. Americans drink far too much alcohol as it is. Why ruin a wonderful egg salad sandwich experience with something as trite as alcohol?

Really? White bread and iceberg lettuce? I'm surprised. I'm accustomed to musicians eating organic. Oh, wait. I live in California. hmmm. My teacher is from Berkeley. That would explain it.
May you always enjoy good health despite limitless chips, Swiss crepes and white bread.
