Is anyone listening via iTunes or a .pls stream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/14/17 9:15am listener james from westwood:

Doug, if it helps with the mixed feelings, the night my mom died, after she accepted palliative care, and after she endured eight trips to the hospital for COPD, 4 months in a nursing home, and 2 bouts of respiratory arrest and ventilator intubation, I slept more deeply than I had for 2 years since her decline began.
Also: You may eventually, soon or even surprisingly distant from now, just completely let loose with grief and accumulated tension. This is also OK. It helps.
YMMV on all of this as on everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/14/17 9:16am listener james from westwood:

I'm on iTunes. Was on the stream at 9, then saw here folks could hear. I opened a non-GTDR stream then flipped back to GTDR, and I was on. Maybe the same will work w the popup.

That you're doing this at all today is pretty powerful and admirable. My thoughts and condolences added to all the others.
My dad at 90 is doing relatively well, but with failing knees is too proud to use a cane for walks in public. At 90, why give a shit about appearances and an inhibiting self-consciousness? And why not be constructively self-attentive? Wellll, the question for (middle-aged) young 'uns, of course, is why ask such questions in vain about what the elders oughta do or not do?

My father was in ridiculously good physical shape. Had both hips replaced, but that was it. The hospital stay in 2006 for his first hip surgery was his first time in a hospital since toddlerhood.

My deepest, most sincere sympathies, Doug. Trying to catch up here after a few days away with my 90YO mother. Brought the kids, and there was a lot of childlike laughter for the three days we visited. But I know the worry that an aging parent can provoke. Boy, do I know it.

Another book title: John A. Farrell's new biography, Richard Nixon: The Life. Truly, a delightful read, replete with new details of Nixon's life, including Farrell's fair journalistic attempts to psychoanalyze a President well worth psychoanalyzing.

July 17 this year, the 50th anniversary of John's death, is also a Monday.
  Fri. 7/14/17 11:28am Dean:

Thanks, Doug. True. Farrell certainly humanizes him and gives him credit where due. This gives the reader leave to despise the man, rather than the office, which is understandably how we tend to relate to POTUS. For example, Nixon's racism (and anti-Semitism and sexism) was deep, and yet he occasionally struggled to overcome it. But when racism afforded him political leverage, he exercised it mightily.

Those edits of Baraka's poem are on the original documentary.
  Fri. 7/14/17 11:33am Dean:

I thought Stone appeared in the book, but he's not in the index. A footnote on a page midway through enumerates a "list of prime movers in American politics and government who cut their teeth with Nixon." BTW, the book is mostly end-noted, most of which are mere references to sources, rather than substantive glosses. The text flows uninterrupted.

Ah, roll over, Beethoven.

But Slominsky makes complete sense:

"...a Russian-born American conductor, author, pianist, composer and lexicographer. Best known for his writing and musical reference work, he wrote the Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns and the Lexicon of Musical Invective..."

Adding my thumbs-up for the Farrell Nixon. And the endnotes are worth reading. There's a by-turns horrifying and hilarious note re: Nixon and someone else escaping from one donor or other big macher's house after the butler rats him out.

Thank you Doug. (sorry i didn't say hi...i snuck in very late.)

@Doug, I would settle for Stone to be denied even a bed at the hour of his death. Drainage canal or industrial ore crusher is more suitable.

Many thanks, Doug, and safest of travels northeast!

Doug, where is the chest beating on Temple recording?
Avatar Fri. 7/14/17 1:01pm Doug Schulkind:

@Gtdsfan
Did I get that wrong? I'm pretty sure I remember it being discussed in the liner notes. I'm not at home with my copy or I'd look for it.
  Fri. 7/14/17 1:12pm Gtdsfan:

I still haven't listened to Temple. I am curious with track itveaz on.
  Fri. 7/14/17 1:12pm Gtdsfan:

Avatar Fri. 7/14/17 1:14pm Doug Schulkind:

Will investigate when I get back home. I'll be curious to see if my mind made the whole thing up. Fun!

On that Coltrane at Temple University set, it is the track "Leo" where Trane stops playing his horn and beating his chest while chanting.
