It seems obligatory for the novice blogger to marvel over the goofy Google searches that bring readers in. I’ve already noted “pure sunglasses stravinsky,” and I can now boast of “morton feldman prostitutes,” "rienzi nazi," “wacky polyphonic tone,” “doctor faustus nietzsche art discussion” (yikes), “ashtrays sings," and “gergiev weird conducting.” The two most popular are “pavement song meanings” and, at least twice a day, “karita mattila salome.” More people like Caroliner than I ever would have guessed. Basically, to dredge up a sample of my writing it helps to have one word that’s very high-falutin' and one word that’s a little bit loosey-goosey. This is the only site in existence containing the words “Ustvolskaya" and "gobsmacked," for example. Adorno muscleboys, you have a home.
