Found Words – The Yarns

April 30, 2009

Wadstock numero tres:

The Yarns.

One bit of advice for The Yarns. “theyarnsuk” while possibly interpreted “the yarns uk” is easily confused for “the yarn suk” which makes less grammatical sense, but catches the eye. I reserve judgement until Saturday.

Wadstock band numero dos:

Found Words – Einstein

April 29, 2009

“One of the strongest motives that lead persons to art or science is a flight from the everyday life…. With this negative motive goes a positive one. Many seeks to form for himself, in whatever manner is suitable for him, a simplified and lucid image of the world, and so to overcome the world of experience by striving to replace it to some extent by this image. This is what the painter does, and the poet, the speculative philosopher, the natural scientist, each in his own way. Into this image and its formation, he places the center of gravity of his emotional life, in order to attain the peace and serenity that he cannot find within the narrow confines of swirling personal experience.”

-Albert Einstein, as quoted in “The Great Influenza,” by John M. Barry

Written Words – Wadstock

So there’s a music festival of sorts Saturday at Oxford. It’s called Wadstock. I don’t really know anything about it, but a college mate of mine is playing in it, and he picked us up some tickets. 12 to midnight, and I’m trying to do a little prep work to see what bands I like. Expect a series of Wadstock bands and links, and of course, reports afterwards.
