I know it’s a serious subject, but…

This line cracks me up for all the wrong reasons:

“Music should never be used as torture,” said [Roseanne] Cash. “It’s beyond the pale. It’s hard to even think about.”

Now I like Roseanne Cash’s music, and her dad is a god to me…

…but really, if the music business does not wish to get entangled in torture, we’d never hear stuff like this. (funny bad — maybe the Geneva Conventions don’t apply)

Or this. (really, really, awful.  Warm up the courtroom at the Hague.)

Or, especially and always, this. (You know what’s on the other side of that link. Don’t go there. Just don’t.)

    I’m well. Working a new gig at a Brooklyn start-up, writing very wonky articles about the EPA, energy efficiency and subsidies. Exploring other options that shall not be named at this time. Mostly, I’m all right.


  3. One hears such sounds, and what can one say but… ”Seebach.”
