I am so mad at me that @johnroderick ‘s hat and I were not in Seattle for this show.

Chills. Wow wow wow.

Also for the record: Dave Bazan has one of the most expressive voices in rock.

That David Bazan guy? Yeah. First name basis. Just sayin’.

(I’m just super honored to have the (entirely insignificant and wholly fan-to-artist) relationship with Dave that I do have. He really is a hero to me and his music resonates within my soul.)

Philip Glass / Robert Wilson - Einstein On The Beach - Knee 5

8:05 for August 5th

Philip Glass isn’t for everybody, but he’s a hero of mine. This is a beautiful piece of art. It is the final piece from his 5+ hour-long masterpiece. Text by Mr. Samuel Johnson.

Finally she spoke:
“Do you love me, John?” she asked.

“You know I love you, darling.” he replied.
“I love you more than tongue can tell. You are the light of my life, my sun, moon and stars. You are my everything. Without you I have no reason for being.”

Again there was silence as the two lovers sat on a park bench, their bodies touching, holding handls in the moonlight. Once more she spoke.

“How much do you love me, John?” she asked.

He answered:
“How much do I love you? Count the stars in the sky. Measure the waters of the oceans with a teaspoon. Number the grains of sand on the sea shore. Impossible, you say. Yes and it is just as impossible for me to say how much I love you.

“My love for you is higher than the heavens, deeper than Hades, and broader than the earth. It has no limits, no bounds. Everything must have an ending except my love for you.”

There was more of silence as the two lovers sat on a park bench with their bodies touching, holding hands in the moonlight. Once more her voice was heard.

“Kiss me, John” she implored.

And leaning over, he pressed his lips warmly to hers in fervent osculation.

Happy 75th birthday to Philip Glass!

Don’t worry about that.

-Rod posted this before the news broke. You could replace his young daughter’s name with “Steve Jobs” and no one would know the difference.

Apple succeeded at changing the world because Steve didn’t follow the rules. We’ve all benefitted from that.

Q: Where were you when you found out that Steve Jobs had died?
I will remember this night like my parents remember the deaths of Kennedy, King, and Presley.  RIP Steve. You changed my life and the world in immeasurable ways and you will never, ever, be replaced.
