Weekend 399.0 (Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down)

I think ‘Weekend Post 400.0’ needs to be something spectacular but I’m getting a little ahead of myself. I’ve been busy mining bitcoins¹ and helping my friend grieve after his beloved seagulls were promoted to the top flight (hence the lack of posts). I get oodles of spam about LIMESTONE but always ‘legitimate’ requests for […]

Weekend 390.0 (“Come on, let’s drive across to the Palisades”)

“…when you are stuck, with nothing in your head but your memories, and memories of memories, which form a map, some more recent than others, some about music, which you can almost hear, smashed into the spilling sounds of the segmented, centre-less city below, a vast imaginary landscape waiting to be discovered, about how you […]

Weekend 381.0

‘Even though an old proverb says, “too much special knowledge makes you stupid” I, as a craftsman, must say that having gone through an apprenticeship in the field of applied art, gives me certain advantages in the difficult art of design, as compared to those who partly or completely work from theoretical knowledge.’ – Kay […]

“The future sounds so crazy We all heard that song before Tomorrow’s a name that changed from yesterday to blame When a train just don’t stop here anymore I got starry eyed On a coaster ride Andy said, ‘Man, I need a break from the world outside.’” Scan is from The Hidden Art of Disney’s […]

Weekend 364.1

I saw the NY Philharmonic play Fantasia on Friday Night at Lincoln Center (David Geffen Hall). It’s the 75th Anniversary of Fantasia and the program included selections from Fantasia (1940) and Fantasia 2000 (1999). It was a fantas(ia)tic evening, but they didn’t play my three favorite pieces: Night On Bald Mountain (1940) Ave Maria (1940) […]
