had a dream that it was the middle of the day and I just realized I’d slept through my woodwind techniques course.

immediately woke up to my alarm for woodwind techniques

According to Bruce Haynes, canonism is strictly a “Classical thing” (file this under “things that will make jazz musicians want to beat you up.” Also hello THERE IS A LITERAL ROCK HALL OF FAME, sounds like a canon to me.)

oh lordy this reading

How can it even enter your HEAD as a music scholar to say no composers have been admitted into the canon past world war I?

it’s just

it’s just FUCKING WRONG. How can you have years of study behind you and just say all matter-of-fact “no one past the first world war is seen as part of the canon”?

Stravinsky? Messaien? Bartok? Copland? Grainger, Ives? Fucking John Cage, any of the avant garde composers? Philip Glass? John Adams? Apparently no one sees them as canonical!

THIS CLAIM IS LITERALLY SAYING STRAVINSKY IS NOT CONSIDERED PART OF THE CANON.

WHAT THE HELL

Anyone who says the /entire/ classical music side of tumblr is all prim and proper will have the most vulgar renditions of theory and stravinsky’s dick thrown their way

and then someone will change their URL to stravinskysdick within the next few reblogs

or vulgarrenditionsoftheory

Which is an awesome name for a band.

there are guys in my dorm who decided to play cards in the elevator

see what intrigues me about college isn’t the intellectual pursuit or the bonding or whatever, its the fact that people have the freedom to do random shit like this

Garrison Keillor goes up to the counter orders a cappuccino and a croissant. He sits in the corner and looks across the street at the Chatterbox Café. Pastor Ingqvist and Ralph Anderson are standing outside. They’re talking about the silent auction down at Lake Wobegon High School today. Bertha Johnson’s pies are sure to be on sale. He stands up and looks around at the people in the shop. All the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.
