    Hi,

    I love piroshki. I was sent this book to read. I wonder how she and I look from our very differing perspectives. Some years ago, I have given talks about my experiences as an American in the Soviet Union. I always worried if I had a Soviet citizen would they agree, disagree or get defensive over my comments. While I felt I lived in their world, I still lived in a rather privileged fringe of their world from any Soviet's perspective.

    It's a book I have long thought about writing.

    Regards,
    Cathy2

    I'm sure if you wrote it, it would be a very interesting book. What did you think of Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking? I love the title.

    I've never been a Stevie Nicks fan. Not that I didn't like her; she just never spoke to me and I felt I probably wasn't her audience.

    Last year, I randomly ripped one of her albums, and on it was a rendition of "Annabel Lee," which was the first poem I read in the first book I ever bought. The book was Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe. I was just into double digits, and this story of lost love, selfish angels and darkness really hit me. I didn't know words could be that powerful.



    I'm not saying this is a great poem, or maybe even a great Poe poem, but it really knocked the younger me for a loop. It was also an inspiration for Nabokov's Lolita. Poe was Humbert Humbert's favorite poet, and the novel was originally titled The Kingdom by the Sea, which is a poignant phrase from this, Poe's last known work.

    The spookiness is a good fit for Ms. Nicks' witchy attire, and I love it when contemporary musicians, like Nicks and Neil Young, revive Americana for a new audience.

    Saw the Spanish Orchestra of Harlem a few weeks ago at Pick Staiger. Wow. Very technically talented musicians playing infectiously fun music. They seemed genuinely enthused to be playing their wonderful brand of Jazz before an academic audience. Much different than the huge venues they often play.

    Cake. "I will survive." Better than Gloria Gaynor. No disco flash, just a down articulation of false hope, which may be the only kind we hope for.



    I'm tempted to pick up the bass again just for that one, very short riff.

    "See the meat pie is a traditional feast here, the week of the races ... I often make ten, and they're hard work, hard going, but when my boys are come back for the races and come home, I say, would you like a meat pie? Would I like two meat pies? they say ... our great great grandfathers ate it, and it kept the bones going, and they would eat it before or after drink, and it spared the woman of the house from cooking vegetables and potatoes and meat and everything; the meat pie covered everything.

    "I made mine yesterday; I devoted my whole day to them, and I had the door locked and no one came in to distract me, and I made thirty of them. And they're very handy, if you have a visitor---and you would often have a visitor---and they'd be hungry. Give them a meat pie, and they're fit for a day and a night."

    --- from the RTÉ documentary, "Is This the End of the Story?" on the decline of socializing and storytelling in pubs in Ireland

    John Cage 4'33"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTEFKFiXSx4

    I was honored to have a chat with David Hammond at the picnic. As I was attempting to explain myself he asked what kind of music I liked. I mentioned John Cage. He asked if I still listened to J. C. I assured him that I listened to the above piece often. He told me that when he was in grammar (?) school and 'forced' to listen to 4'33" it changed the way he heard things. I appreciate that. I thanked him for 'friending' me on Facebook a few days ago. He told me it was a mistake--he was trying to friend someone else. I pretended to walk off in a huff. He wouldn't let me go. We ended up having a great, though brief, conversation. Thanks David! I guess I can't win them all. :wink:

    A sentimental favorite of mine: first casette tapes bought for my first Walkman. Conducted by Trevor Pinnock. Listening to them again now from the YouTube link. Thanks.

    Katie,

    I bought this album after reading Paul Newman listened to it in his office. He made a comment about Glenn Gould could be heard humming along. I went home and turned up the stereo really loud to catch it.

    Johann Sebastian Bach - Goldberg Variations | Glenn Gould, piano

    I really enjoy this as well. I find it to be the music most conducive to productive thinking.

    If you haven't seen it, you might be interested in Thirty-Two Short Films About Glenn Gould. This was a biographical film that came out in the 1990's about Gould. The structure of the film was broken into 32 short pieces to mimic the Goldberg Variations.
