Play it again Sam


'Later that year Zuckermann abandoned his harpsichord business and America in disgust at the country's involvement in the Vietnam War.'

It's a good story about how a search to find Olivier Messiaen's birthplace in Avignon leads to a conversation with the man who used to provide harpsichords for John Cage, but that sentence belongs in an old Woody Allen story.
Writes Boring Like A Drill.

So what's wrong with old Woody Allen stories?

Nothing at all! I enjoy Woody Allen stories, especially the early funny ones.

Only joking Ben. I was actually rather flattered to be compared to a Woody Allen scriptwriter.

I wonder how much traffic we would have generated if I'd used Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask as the headline?
