I'm a bit busy this week, so I will distract you by sending you elsewhere, not unlike the President announcing a Supreme Court nomination and a bird-flu counteroffensive on consecutive days after the indictment of Scooter Libby. Greg Sandow is writing an on-line book about the everlasting Classical Problem. Sieglinde has a prose poem in praise of the divine Levine. Marion is one — congrats! The Overgrown Path is a pleasure as ever — see this post on Ligeti's top-five list. The death of Skitch Henderson makes me sad. Ionarts has background on the Robert Wilson Ring in Paris. I can't possibly believe ACD would like it. Speaking of Scooter, The Fredösphere has tried his hand at "The Song of the Aspens," and uTopian TurtleTop is contemplating a setting, but a full adaptation is still awaited.
