READING: via @NYTimes Is Music the Key to Success? http://nyti.ms/16YAbXU
May the Muses forgive us…. Music is an END, not a MEANS.
And especially not a means to successful outward mechanical
power. If only the philosopher of hyper-narcissism Ayn Rand
acolyte Alan Greenspan, who rumor has it plays a mean clarinet,
would have given up not just JAZZ, but also ECONOMICS.
Now THERE’s a world in which all the cocktail party happy-talk
might make a quick and well-deserved diminuendo to NIENTE,
and along the way just perhaps find a bit of real harmony!
