but she would only love one at a time [Mar. 12th, 2007|02:54 am]

I just cannot stop with the Pedro the Lion.

What I want to know is: what's the difference between these songs and the Schubert lieder and Bach cantatas that I love for the same reasons? I don't know. And yet, I'm listening to this, not the Schubert and Bach, so: whaddoes that mean?

Apparently, I can also not stop with the being awake at the three in the goddamn morning. After you all left SNDC tonight, Paul and I decided we're going to get recording gear for Happy House. So, that's good. Really, really good. I wonder how many people there are out there who think they need therapy, when really they just need microphones.

recording gear??!

⋅ Hurray for Happy House Recording Gear!

⋅ But remember, they may need both therapy and microphones.

› Also, it was absolutely lovely to have you play piano for us. I wanted to say something but it never fit into the conversation, so here it is. For me, it was wonderful to get a chance to hear you play, and it reminded me of when I first got to know my Cousin Rick (remember from the wedding toasts, "Hi, I'm Rick Sherman, Harvard class of '49."). He had arranged for me and the Alt Break folks to meet him and his wife at the City Club (like a country club, but in the city!) in Berkeley. He spoke of how he and Pat enjoy going because they often have local classical artists play in a small music drawing room. It was good because the small space with good acoustics gave you the privilege of hearing someone with remarkable talent perform when normally they either don't get to (don't know the right people) or the situation doesn't favor them (a small but lovely voice in a giant concert hall). I felt that way about hearing you play last night. It is so wonderful to get a chance to hear a friend of mine who has talent and passion for music and lyrics play for us in her home on a baby grand piano.

I hope you find out what you need to do to tweak your newest song to your satisfaction!

You can totally borrow my mic if you need. I never use it and it's lonely. It's a stereo cardioid condenser mic.

Plus, therapy is fun. Don't think of it as something you need! :)
