Your blog sucks. I really hate learning about this music and literature crap. Perhaps your next entry could deal with something interesting, like thumb strength?

I was really surprised when I first heard this song because I thought it sounded really familiar. Tell me if this selection from Michael Nyman’s soundtrack to “Prospero’s Books” does not sound a lot like the beginning to “Different Trains.”

Dude, Different Trains is the shit. I love how he went through and figured out the pitches of people’s voices as close as he could get them. Reich definitely is good at his craft.

Man, keep it up with the Reich. This stuff is awesome.

At some point I really need to go back through your archives, because I’ve been neglecting my erudition here.
