Triadic Memories

I forgot to relate this.

Last weekend I drove to campus, and New Jersey Avenue was shut down. So I parked elsewhere, then walked down to see what was going on. There were a few cameras set up, a dozen cars parked in the street, and joggers running back and forth through the traffic. Every so often some guy would yell and all the cars would jump forward, aiming for the joggers, who turned around and pantomined pissed-off-ness.

"Jay, get down here! They're filming a movie!" I called.

Jay arrived, as I was wandering around the background of the scene. I asked some guy what they were filming.

"Transformers," he said.

"The Transformers? More than meets the eye? Michael Bay's Transformers?"

"That's the one."

"So if we stay here, we might actually get to appear in a real Michael Bay movie?"

"Yeah."

"Let's get the fuck out of here," said Jay.

"Yeah," said I.

Well, it happened something like that. There was some blond chick there who apparently is famous in Australia, but she didn't do much for me. Too skinny.

I had a good talk with my momma this evening. My family's rocking.

Dr. Goldstein started Morton Feldman's Triadic Memories at 8 PM this evening. I've witnessed it once before.

Louie Goldstein to Scott Scheule:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I would like to let you know that I will be performing Morton Feldman's "Triadic Memories" at Wake Forest University on Sunday, October 8, at 8 PM. It is one of Mr. Feldman's long, late pieces. My current interpretation of this score clocks in at about 110 minutes. In my opinion, it is a very beautiful experience. As I'm telling the folks here on campus, it is a single-movement composition of stunning yet delicate beauty.


Scott Scheule to Louie:

I'm tempted to say once was enough for me, but it would be embarassing to get caught in such an obvious lie.


[20:23] Remy Boncouer: Louis Goldstein is now 23 minutes into his performance of Triadic Memories. He'll be finishing up next Friday sometime.
[20:24] Remy Boncouer: Depending of course on whether or not he takes the repeat.
[20:24] allikat107: hahahahahaha
[20:24] allikat107: ohhh, memories of triadic memories...
[20:31] Remy Boncouer: For me too. I've fallen asleep during many concerts, but I'm pretty sure that was the only one I actually started snoring in.
[20:31] allikat107: that was you??
[20:32] Remy Boncouer: Hush, no one knows. It's because I sing baritone, but snore soprano.
[20:33] allikat107: hahahaha

Why exactly would I label a post? Can someone tell me?
