Wikipedia: “The Ginsu knife is often seen cutting through metal cans, a nail, a radiator hose or a tree trunk, before cleanly cutting a paper thin slice of tomato, though few consumers would ever find a need to do all of those things, especially in rapid succession.”

Things I didn’t know about Timothy McVeigh: “McVeigh was also interested in computers, and he hacked into government computer systems on his Commodore 64, under the handle ‘The Wanderer,’ which was borrowed from the song by Dion DiMucci. In his senior year, he was named the school’s ‘Most Promising Computer Programmer.’”

I am listening to Steely Dan’s Katy Lied for the first time and also realizing for the first time that the title is “Katy Lied” as in “Katy Told a Lie”, not as in “Katy Song” (Lied = song, in German).

T— attended a John Cage lecture/performance in Minnesota in the 1970’s. Cage delivered one of his chance texts (something from M?) then took questions. A man stood and introduced himself as a music professor at a local college. He said he wanted to expose his students to contemporary music but was reluctant because he didn't know what contemporary music was good. Cage’s advice: “Listen to one hundred hours of contemporary music. Then you will know.”

Things I did not know about James Tenney: “Tenney also starred nude in a 1965 silent film of collaged and painted sequences of lovemaking between him and his then partner, Carolee Schneemann, called Fuses.”
