    Glenn Gould - On the Record

    This short documentary follows Glenn Gould to New York City. There, we see the renowned Canadian concert pianist kidding the cab driver, bantering with sound engineers at Columbia Records, and then, alone with the piano, fastidiously recording Bach’s Italian Concerto.

    Directed by Wolf Koenig & Roman Kroitor - 1959

  4. Sexy Lamp song by Thundering Asteroids

    kellysue:

    Sexy Lamp Page one. Panel one.
    All the tropes are getting held up.
    My breasts or my backstory,
    Let’s see which is more developed. I’m the character you’re writing.
    The only one that’s female.
    I feel like Smurfette.
    I guess that makes you Gargamel. Don’t fridge me, bro.
    I’m not a plot device to stroke your ego.
    I’m not your damsel or your tramp,
    And I’m not your…
    Sexy lamp. Write me dialog,
    That’s more than pure emotion.
    Give me clothes that,
    Might survive a small explosion. Midriff, high heels.
    I won’t be chasing anyone.
    Please tell the criminals,
    Not to shoot and not to run. Don’t fridge me, bro.
    I’m not a plot device to stroke your ego.
    I’m not your damsel or your tramp,
    And I’m not your…
    Sexy lamp. Even with a cheat sheet,
    You couldn’t pass a Bechdel Test.
    It seems you need to see me,
    Oppressed or undressed. I’m not from Venus.
    I’m from the same planet as you.
    Write me like I’m human,
    Or give me to Kelly Sue. Don’t fridge me, bro.
    I’m not a plot device to stroke your ego.
    I’m not your damsel or your tramp,
    And I’m not your…
    Sexy lamp. Don’t fridge me, bro.
    I’m not a plot device to stroke your ego.
    I’m not your damsel or your tramp,
    And I’m not your…
    No, I’m not your…
    Sexy lamp.

J.S. Bach, Leipzig.October, 2013.

Got to get my shit together and go on a Bach pilgrimage at least once in my life. Next year. Yeah, that’s it, next year. Or the year after. Or maybe I’ll just stay holed up with my books and CDs.

  9. When Is A “Work For Hire” Not A “Work For Hire”? →

    We are unfortunately all used to publishers retroactively claiming work they published was done for hire, or creators doing work for hire without knowing it or understanding what it means (even nowadays. Read this).

    Now in a schocking twist, we see a commissioner buying work for hire without knowing what it is…

  10. Legally, anyone who represents someone else (attorneys, realtors, accountants, employees, artist agents and artist managers, etc.) are all considered “agents”. The people they work for are called “principals.” The Law of Agency governs the relationship between agents and principals. While the Law of Agency imposes duties on both agents and principals, for purposes of this discussion, there are four key concepts:

    (1) An agent works for the principal and, while the agent can advise the principal, the agent must follow the instructions and directives of the principal.

    (2) An agent can never put his or her own interests above that of the principal.

    (3) All of the “results and proceeds” of the agent’s work on behalf of the principal belongs to the principal.

    (4) Any contractual provision, written or oral, that contravenes rules (1) – (3) is null and void.

    In short, when a manager represents an artist, the manager has no proprietary information. In other words, those aren’t your leads and contacts, they are the artist’s. While your leads and contacts may start out as your own, once you contact someone on behalf of an artist, the artist is legally entitled to know anyone you have spoken to on his or her behalf, including the details of such conversation.

Please reblog this whoever, wherever you are… it’s a futile act, it won’t get any more people through the door on the night but having it splattered all over Tumblr would amuse me greatly and be kind of nice
Thank you
P.S. The show is in Nottingham in the UK, so I appreciate this prevents many of you coming along, I mean, I know you would if you could…
