READIN

Jeremy's journal

I was born with a mind that suffers from the incurable disease of worrying precisely about what could or might have been.

Note

(apropos of nothing) "I eat my peas with honey" by Ogden Nash can be sung to the tune of "I have a little dreidl".

An argument for retelling Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel.
It is inherently liberating for a writer to retell the story of Tweedledum and Tweedledee. The essential absurdity of opening your story "Tweedledum was squatting pensive by their camp fire..." can absolve the author of any further need for exposition or explication. The fictional world of his narrative will be heralded in all its richness and detail by the mere presence of the chubby, angry twins.

Variations on a theme

"To be honest, I can't think of any other nursery rhymes or children's stories as starkly Sisyphian as Itsy Bitsy Spider."
-- Tim S.
We must imagine the Itsy-bitsy Spider happy.
"The Little Engine that Thought It Could": an eternally optimistic Sysiphus variation.

Electric ragtime playlist

Check it out. Here are a couple of recordings I've done in the past few weeks, 3 songs and a couple of Hobo Nickel plugs -- Electric Ragtime!

Syncopations are no indication of light or trashy music, and to shy bricks at "hateful ragtime" no longer passes for musical culture. To assist amateurs in in giving the "Joplin Rags" that weird and intoxicating effect intended by the composer is the object of this work.

School of Ragtime, 1908
