None of you dicks wished me a happy 105th birthday!

I’ve been dead for a whole fucking year? God fucking damn, time sure does fly. It seems like only yesterday I was getting wasted fucking drunk with Calvin Coolidge, and chasin’ bloomers upstate. Those were the days. God fucking dammit. Holy shit. 

Remember, remember the 5th of November, assholes!

Elliott Carter: Flute Concerto

Awesome.

You’re god damn right I’m fucking awesome. 

I hate how Jimi Hendrix is walking around here like he’s hot shit. Motherfucker basically killed himself at 27…I lived to be almost ONE HUNDRED AND FUCKING FOUR. 

I never much cared for his guitar playing either. 

I was just talking to Bach and he actually does kill a kitten every time you fucking write parallel 5ths. So cut that shit out.

elliott carter “string quartet no.3/string quartet no.2”

God dammit. Album covers were really total shit back in the day, weren’t they? I mean, look at this pile of fuck. And the pasted on track list on the front like this is the fucking Beatles original “Yesterday and Today” butcher cover. I’m not covered in fucking meat for christ sake. Take that shit off there. God dammit.

Bernstein with Carter, premiering Carter’s Symphony No. 1

“When I studied in Paris with Nadia Boulanger I had to go through up to eight parts of counterpoint. I learned all about how to do that. That sticks in your head and it has an effect on the way I think about music still although I don’t write anything like that now. The idea of counterpoint for instance is something that has invaded my music and very few people to date can write counterpoint. Maybe they don’t want to write it, I don’t know, but when they do it’s a mess. Mine is not so bad.”


I was standing way back behind those two in the picture because Lenny had just tried to touch Copland’s junk and he was having fucking NONE of it. And look at Lenny’s fucking porn-glasses. Jesus. It’s like he could step off the podium and immediately go back to work directing fucking Deepthroat.
