"Songs won't save the planet...

..but neither will books or speeches"

-Pete Seeger


I like music: country music, folk music, rock music, pop music, hip-hop music, rap music, classical music, music I only like on the dance floor, music I'll sing after a few drinks, music I'll sing after no drinks, music that was clearly written for children, corny music, and lots and lots of sad music.

And I like to talk about it. Velkommen.

I’m so sad about Joan rivers

I didn’t realize her age. She’s so active and funny!! I love her. She’s been a friend to Israel, of course, so extra blessings for that.

I’m reading Sylvie Simmon’s Biography of Leonard Cohen and I must say that this image encompasses his life perfectly. Little Leonard hiding in the corner, and quietly taking in the scene while women fill up his world. I see Joan Baez in the center and Joni Mitchell to the far left.

“As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all. Becoming friends with Lena – without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for – has made me realize that I’ve been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so.”
