Who? I'm dying to know.
Tell me something interesting about yourself, Alex from Arlington, and I'll give you a clue.
I know because I googled it!
You are not alone.
I walk to work (9 miles) about once a week and I have over 40 hours of gamelan recordings on my iPhone. Does that qualify?
Nice! In fact that was so interesting I'm going to give you the answer: Art Garfunkel.
Interesting! There are many dimensions to that guy. Have you seen Bad Timing?
No. But I'd heard of it due to the Keith Jarrett connection (Jarrett's Koln Concert features in the soundtrack). So I did some Googling and came across this intriguing (for a Keith Jarrett fan) comment:"Nicolas Roeg had some interesting things to say about working with Jarrett on the 'Trade Secrets' interview that's on the Criterion Bad Timing disc."
Keith Jarrett pops up in books too:http://www.edrants.com/remembering-david-foster-wallace/.... I’ll never forget the day I first heard of David Foster Wallace. I was a high school student in a writers group made up of employees of the public library. One night Jen, a twenty-something poet who I worshiped, brought in Wallace’s book Girl With Curious Hair. “Listen to this,” she’d said, and then she read aloud the first few pages of the title story. I can still hear her voice reading those first lines: “Gimlet dreamed that if she did not see a concert last night she would become a type of liquid, therefore my friends Mr. Wonderful, Big, Gimlet and I went to see Keith Jarrett play a piano concert at the Irvine Concert Hall in Irvine last night. It was such a good concert! Keith Jarrett is a Negro who plays the piano.”
