From time to time, I ask myself if I might better spend my time managing the family finances versus finding the latest way to apply web 2.0 to advocating "new" American classical music. For some reason, that question is particularly acute tonight. And in a bit of irony, my online Wall Street Journal account expired today and attempts to renew fail with some kind of internal error.
So, in an attempt to diversify, I've started to think how I can make people aware of the wealth of American classical music, except without using the web. No answer yet but I'm afraid it will somehow involve face-to-face (or even door-to-door) contact. Yikes.

Back on message, Julius Eastman's emphatic and gripping The Holy Presence Of Joan D'Arc is my nominee for awork of the week, given our current financial struggles.
And here's hoping for a calmer, more tonal financial market tomorrow morning...
- aworks disclaimer: past performance is no guarantee of future results, although eastman's work sounds darn good, tonight anyway.
- lala: the holy presence of joan d'arc. also appropriately recommended, eastman's piano piece gay guerilla
- and in a reminder we are still in a political season: You know, an 84 / 9 legit email to spam ratio is pretty good for a Yahoo! account. At least in my experience.
