Many thanks to those who came to see my grim talk at the Peabody Institute. I am relatively sure that at some point I said "Carlos Kleiber" when I meant to say "Erich Kleiber." Also, Judd Greenstein writes to point out that the Godfather of Noise is not Boulez but Rahzel. Boulez and Rahzel should work together, as Bourahzellez.
Take note of: Random-in-NYC's brilliant made-up Sufjan Stevens albums; a new blog called A Beautiful Theme; and the rather beautiful semi-pop songs of Gabriel Kahane (who describes himself temptingly as "the bastard child of Alban Berg and Rufus Wainwright"; see esp. "Libertine").
