Pedro's Corner

Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

Anyway, I'm not into it. Coffee and tobacco are about as psychoactive as I get.

there's a tiny little town off independence pass called twin lakes. it is literally just a few businesses on the side of a highway, next to a trailhead for mt elbert. its a good 2 hours into the mountains from denver. not a lot there really except a little shop or 2, a general store and this little vw bus turned out into a coffee truck. doesnt go anywhere, just stationary. so you drive forever through nowhere and just come up on the crazy hippie type people who just sell coffee on the side of the highway. good coffee too. look at em blasting funkytown out there.

I've always wondered what would have happened if, instead of playing Wagner, US choppers had played this as they dropped bombs on Vietnam. Would it not have been considerably more impressive?

The moment would have definitely been more poignant.. the graveness of the event, juxtaposed against the symphonic classique of the sonate.. akin to Apocalypse Now and Paint It Black.

The oboe concertos would have been even better.



What would it have done to the psyche of the pilots?

But I guess the moment itself is what justifies the thought, without any consideration of implications.

Just the image.

No dumbass it would have been completely and utterly ineffective. The whole point was to scare the shit out of the gooks. That shit would only calm them and help them concentrate better.

The Albinoni would only make it scarier, the point more contundent.

Wagner has something to prove. "Wo, look at me, so scary, check out these basoons!"

You both make good points.. there’s a very good reason why napalm was banned for use against civilians, and any choice of music wouldn’t make it any less lethal or scary.

I preferred the Sonate, the Oboe Concertos is too jolly for me..

The oboe has that sound of the rising sun baked into it.

Vivaldi has some oboe concertos to, but he never captured them quite like Albinoni did. He thought of them as simple accompaniement for strings, didn't fully hear the Sun in them.

Let's put some words together here
For the patronage and the friends dear
For the flowers blossoming somewhere
For the gentle flake falling some time near
This is for the ladies, always dressed in style
For the maniacs, degenerate and foul
For the angels touching the tip of my pen
And the devils adding howl unto howl
For sitting by a lake under pink sky
And pissing in it later as the cold bites
For marching forward regardless of the weather
And bayoneting every one regardless of their mother
For listening for the screeching owl
Late at night when the blackness scowls
And counting stars while the blood is pumping
In your ear as your enemy prowls
This is for the company of all your lovers
May God bless them and keep them lovely
The caresses of the wind as you stare out into
A sea so endless it could swallow continents
For the color red and brown and blue and orange
For every time you witnessed courage
And every baby that you heard crying
This is for the trees and the birds and the death and the sadness
And for merrily strolling on regardless
Keep on keeping on you beautiful sons of bastards
You ladies, all of you in my heart with madness
Keep keeping the keep and stylish
God bless you all, good night then

Only a chinaman can wear shorts and high white socks and make it look dignified, like a corduroy suit.

I didn't post this one before because I was too close to it still. But I kinda like it now.
