This is pretty scrambled, but:
lefsetz mentions something about jian ghomeshi and tom petty
jian ghomeshi, as part of moxy fruvous, did an earthwise show, that is to say, I organized the show, although it was a free show at Stanford Tresidder, about 1999.
The link is to, randomly enough, or not, a play on “green eggs and ham”.
Meanwhile, and this might be an outlier, the Geisel estate made a huge gift to Dartmouth who in term renamed the med school for him. (Which I once mocked as Red Pill Blue Pill)
I also recently was reading, for first time, Paul Celan, and went to Palo Alto Childrens Theatre “Seussical” to try to further a thought-exercise I was calling Red Fish Blue Fish (something that rhymes with “red”) Fish (something that rhymes with blue) Fish. Think: Holocaust.
So maybe Jian Ghomeshi, Tom Petty, the journalist musician in Brooklyn or Wisconsin who records for Tzadik (John Zorn) and I exchanged emails with, will also combine on something that looks at our darkest years with a new light. I mean Dan Kaufman of Barbez.
