Talk of the Town

Then and Now.

To answer one of my favorite culture vulture's queries: Even with all the crud we're bombarded with, I still am happy to be in the Here and Now. I love John Adams and Miles Davis as much as I love Rachmaninoff and Fanny Brice. There's still plenty of good out there; you just have to work a bit harder to get to it.

To take it even further: I like antibiotics, the internet, my mp3s (transferred from old 78s) of my heroes playing the piano, and regulated as opposed to bootleg liquor. Less of a chance of going blind from the former than the latter.
