Music
In Greek mythology, the muses were the daughters of Zeus the king of the gods and Mnemosyne the goddess of memory. The muses inspired men to create what we commonly call the fine arts. In this digital realm, you will find music of both high and low culture, from literature to the visual arts to what we narrowly call music in English. Enjoy and be grateful for being human; for the muses have richly blessed our race.

Michael had just turned thirteen years old when this show aired. What a sad and twisted life that fame brought him.

Santa Esmeralda

My favorite scene in the first Kill Bill film is the climactic fight between the Bride and O-Ren Ishii. The background song, with its infectiously delightful clapping and flamenco flavored disco, is Santa Esmeralda’s version of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” from A.D. 1977:

You may watch the movie scene here (rated R), though you should rather see it in its full context, of course.

Waterloo Sunset

Happy Wednesday; I am lazy today. Here is “Waterloo Sunset” by the Kinks from A.D. 1967:

It is odd how much I like the popular music from the 1960’s but despise the civilizational decay and destruction of which it was the soundtrack.
