It would be a joy

It would be such a joy to travel to 17th century Leipzig and tell the harried J. S. Bach that today he is arguably considered the greatest composer of all time and that his music is probably heard by someone every second of every day (just like I'll be performing his Mass in B Minor this weekend).

Or to tell William Shakespear that he is the greatest playwrite who ever lived to people in the 21st century and that even people who have never seen one of his plays may have seen "West Side Story" or "Ran" or even "Shakespear in Love" or used a phrase like "in my mind's eye" or "a rose by any other name ...".

Elvis probably knew how important he was. But it's not too late to let Chuck Berry and Fats Domino know.

It's too late to tell John Lennon. I'm sure Paul McCartney knows. But tell him anyway ;)

I think I'll do my next few postings to my myspace page. You don't have to be subscribed to that crappy service to read them (I don't think) but at least there my myspace friends will know about it.

Welcome me back!

I'm back! We'll see how long it lasts. Much has happened since my last posting, but some things remain the same:

1. My back still hurts, not enough to keep me down
2. I have played World of Warcraft most every night for most of a year now
3. I'm working on material for a new album. More information soon.
4. I still don't sleep well, but not badly enough to mess me up
5. I have a new job, similar to the old job
6. I'm starting to plan my 10th wedding anniversary with my wife already. Hard to believe it's been a decade.
7. We have the House and the Senate! And by "we" I mean the "Democrat" (sic) party ;)
