"Where words fail, music speaks" (Hans Christian Andersen)

"It was the word beyond speech." (Hermann Broch, ending of "the Death of Virgil")


Classical music

Avoid crowds: Stay away from symphonic orchestral and choral music whenever possible.


Popular (+ semi-popular) music

Popular but, remarkably, also meaningful anyway and nonetheless


Music television until the sun burus out. Video killed the radoio star.

Christian music

Christian believers are not all prigs.


Communist, workers movement, and military (i.e.: political motivation) music

The masses need to be motivated, but be careful here, like Odysseus vis-à-vis the The Sirens.


Abominated

This is noise that corrupts and lays waste to every thing and every body. Listen instead to concrete buildings being demolished. Tulle, audi! (CDI)!


Why did I think Franz Josepf Haydn was an asshole?

Americans moved into Levittowns! Levels were split! Lawns were mowed! Mary Hartman saw the waxy yellow buidup on her kitschen floor! Big Macs were eaten! SUVs flourished! Americans got in their cars, and commuted (not death sentences)! We were: "Runnin' on empty, runnin' around!" (ref.: Jackson Browne song) ~ America's greatest contribution to the history of world architecture: The single family split level [or raised ranch...] suburban tract development house on 1/4 acre or more of grass lawn so why not just make it astroturf?

Because in my childhood rote piano playing pedagogification, one of the stupid things I had to learn to play was "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" which derives from something by Haydn. As a child I did not have the idea that there could be music that would deserve to exist, just like my parants' split level house's lawn had no constructive meaning for me.

Anchors away my boys

Theirmistaking me for one of them who must like what they like, or at least totally indifferent to what I was, but them getting off on being what they were.... It did not end with that ditty which in no way made me feel awe for the starry heavens. "Twinklw, twinklw little star" just made me continue to lack-of-feeling much that the whole social surround I was stuck in was not worth much (unless a person is in a stupor, the world must mean enough to said person for the person to continue to will inhaling and exhaling earth's air, or else they would pass out due to asphyxia. Go team!). It was much worse than that:

Bell bottom trousers,
Coat of navy blue.
He wore a sailor suit,
And [?s]he loved it too....

Did who were themselves gifts from God ideate they were educating their little combination toddler size doll and cat to kick, by subjecting me to that musicrap? And this particular piece of dreck was particularly repulsive to me because I had been -- at leasat one of their mouths had previously emitted words informing me that: -- that sailor suits were fastened with lots of buttons on them, not innocuous zippers, and I had a phobia (neurotic fear) of b-u-t-t-o-n-s. Ich! Consequently! No way did I want anything to do with a sailor suit, which had b-u-t-t-o-n-s!

"Anchors away my boys, anchors away! Sail navy down the field and beat the Army, beat the Army gray...." Really? I didn't give a shit about Navy beating Army, any more than later in my teenage years I would care about St. Paul's Day Carcel for Pubescent Male Virgins except-for-don't-ask-don't-tell-sex-for-jocks beating Gilman: And I wasn't any domestic servant: "b-o-y", either! ~ What did those third person plurals ideate I was? Something like them only smaller? They could have got down on their hands and knees and begged forgiveness for not being better than they were and have respectfully asked what they could do for, not to, me and apolgized again for all the trouble they had caused me and, then: placed me with better parents who could have more appropriately raised up not rear ended me, and then they just have gone away forever. Taking Anchors Away and Thompson's method with them.

BMcC signature seal stamp. Modelled on 18th century messenger's letter box in collection of Suntory Museum, Tokyo. Japanese write poems and prayers on slips of paper which they tie into knots like this shape although with longer legs. Prayers are often tied to branches of trees which can look like they are covered with snow. "Symbol of a symbol, image of an image, emerging from the destiny that is sinking into darkness...." (H. Broch, "The Sleepwalkers", p.648) Always remember. Add value. (This image created not later than 21 May 2003)Invenit et fecit
