Cage Mercury





Farrokh Bulsara, born 70 years ago today. Reminder: Queen stole Live Aid. I would like to thank Mark Bowman, Tom Atkins, the Musser brothers, Vince and Jeff Tequila (Landru or Elric, help me out, what was those two assholes last name? UPDATE! Taquinto?) and all the other jackasses at the basketball court in Duvall Park who gave me grief when I was 14 for liking the faggot band Queen (and multiple other symptoms of non-conformity), I would not be the person I am today without their assholosity. Fine metaphors abound. And no, I can't find the version of (Brian May's) Tie Your Mother Down I want, though love to *udrey *artman, wherever you are.

John Cage, born 104 years ago today.

Once O’Hara returned to New York after finishing graduate school at the University of Michigan, the two attended John Cage’s 1952 New Year’s Day concert put on by the Living Theater. Cage played “Music of Changes,” an atonal, rhythmless work for solo piano.“I was completely taken by surprise,” Mr. Ashbery said. “It was just arbitrary bangs on the piano over quite a long period of time. And long pauses. I had been in a drought with my writing. I felt I hadn’t written anything good in almost a year. It really gave me ideas about how to write poetry again.
