last night I was at this sushi restaurant and they had a big flatscreen tv and were playing a concert by some group called Bond. 4 very attractive, rather young, scantily clad young European ladies playing violin, viola, cello, backed up by band. It was the worst shit I'd been exposed to in a while. they even played the theme from the TV show "Dallas". and apparently this is quite popular in Europe, which confirms much of what I already believed about the soccer-loving euros.
That seems like a very odd thing for American television to be broadcasting. Anything related to Dallas, and I just assume that it's programming from overseas. But it sounds like I'm wrong here? Oh, those crazy sushi restaurateurs and their taste in television.
I'd love to see some contemporary classical artists add like Philip Glass, Kronos Quartet, Clint Mansell, John Cage...something along those lines
i find it awful that you consider john cage a contemporary of philip glass and clint mansell. Cage was working on a totally different level than these "contemporary" neanderthals thirty years prior to them.
