Shop Talk (a continuing series)

"Find the Arrows" by Neil Novello (c)

Last night: Man Ray.

So. Who do I owe everything to today?

Poems by Harryette Mullen and Bernadette Mayer in the mail!
And the various daily/weekly/monthly reviews I receive.
And the search screen of the public library at the ready.
And poetry, two-three-four, newbies from a Philly mag.
My favorite: Sara Mae

There's nothing like:

Six Drawing Lessons, by Wm. Kentridge
Francisco Goya
A Sunday-size crossword puzzle
Carlos Chavez: Violin Concerto, Piano Concerto, Waltzes, Symphony #2, string quartets,
Clara Schumann’s music for piano,
Anton Bruckner’s Symphony #4


Clara:  1819-1896 
Anton: 1824-1896 

Closing out with
a)     Dizzy Gillespie and Oscar Peterson
b)     Stanley Clarke at Griffith Park

My books are available on Amazon.


  1. Thanks for posting the Man Ray films...never saw his work before.

    And the Hank Jones "I remember" is on my Randy playlist.

    Bruckner's Symphony 4 I was listening too last night on the cable system's "Music Choice" classical selections.

    Just like Choice Bits, these musical bits are great.

    Is there a link to Poems by Harryette Mullen and Bernadette Mayer?

  2. I can give you two and I'm sorry for the cut and paste, I don't know how to make them clickable here.

    I think you'll enjoy them.
