Homage to a maestro (at least partly)

First, for a couple of folks on my friends list who list Shostakovich as one of their interests (and you know who you are), there's a LiveJournal community dedicated to him: shostakovich.

But what's better was the link I found in that community to the Uncyclopedia article on Shostakovich: http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Dmitri_Shostakovich.

If you think that's funny, check out the article on Philip Glass. I have not laughed that hard in decades. Seriously. And I don't even LIKE minimalism.

Thanks foer the tip about this site. It's pretty funny! By chance, I watched Koyaanisqatsi two weeks ago. Sober. It was a very different experience. For one, I didn't have to get up and run to the bathroom as much!

I remember way back when MTV played music videos all day long (yes, a very long time ago), they showed an excerpt from Koyaanisqatsi. Man, is that movie manic. I bet if I watched the whole thing, I'd get vertigo.

I want to say he has Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqatsi on CD, but don't quote me on that. And you know that he collects a lot of CDs. :)
