I just shared my Ludovico Einaudi playlist on my Shared Playlists page. 🎵
Road to Perdition, a beautifully crafted film
… ‘cause it’s all so fucking hysterical.
There are a few movies I re-watch every year or so. Road to Perdition is one, along with Godfather I & II, Gladiator, the Chris Pine-as-Kirk Star Trek films, and Last of the Mohicans.
I’d return for the sublime Paul Newman/Tom Hanks piano duet alone, but throw in the gangsters and depression era time travel, and I’m hooked.
I will not be ‘famous,’ ‘great.’ I will go on adventuring, changing, opening my mind and my eyes, refusing to be stamped and stereotyped.
This is what I have to say about Bach – listen, play, love, revere – and keep your trap shut. —Albert Einstein
My favorite, the ultimate, composer.
Weekly New Music Playlist for May 4, 2018
Apple is a rock of common sense, sobriety, dignified engineering supremacy, prudent financial and supply chain management, effective marketing and customer-oriented retailing. It’s a traditional business that does most things well, demands a high price for it and receives that high price.
I added Alternative Classical, Classical AM, Melancholy Piano, and Relaxing Classical to my Shared Playlists page. As always, you can listen via Apple Music or Spotify.
Happy May Day
Photos continue to be a really important part of Micro.blog, especially as more and more people are disillusioned with Facebook and Instagram. Here’s how I see it: a network of independent photo blogs is a much better replacement for Instagram than yet another closed photo silo. Sunlit is just one piece of the puzzle.
What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign?
“This is one of the most intriguing questions on the list. It is not clear whether Mr. Mueller knows something new, but there is no publicly available information linking Mr. Manafort, the former campaign chairman, to such outreach. So his inclusion here is significant. Mr. Manafort’s longtime colleague, Rick Gates, is cooperating with Mr. Mueller.”
There is still a lot of thinking on the right that if big corporations are happy, they’re going to take the money they’re saving and reinvest it in American workers. In fact they bought back shares, a few gave out bonuses; there’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker. — Senator Marco Rubio
