Frustration of the day: really fucking missing a 'verse I developed with a writer partner years ago, but the notes on it are so far from comprehensive there's no words, and there's also no words for how little I want to go into the chat logs.


Well, this is perfect

Full-blown rain-day, right in the middle of Sukkot.

Upside: this is exactly when rain should show up.

Downside: stars are supposed to be visible through the roof-covering of sukkot, and I kinda feel for everyone who'd like to (as customary) dine in theirs.

Thought of the day: the better song to introduce Jace to Leonard Cohen is not the usual suspect (actually, either of the usual suspects), but Chelsea Hotel.

(Brought to you by: the sort of a day where I'm thinking of Jace by the piano, and wonder if whoever wrote that scene understood what they're writing, and if whoever chose Chopin knew enough to understand. I'd've chosen, I don't know, Shostakovich, or Beethoven. Valentine would've been either into fugal structures, I think, or if he was going to go for virtuoso-style I think LIszt's passion would've spoken to him. But Jace isn't playing that and he's not playing Classical's equivalent of metal, he's playing fucking Chopin. And a nocturno, at that. [Fuck if I can ID which nocturno by ear, but I know what when I hear one, damnit.] Just touching a piano - not even the keyboard, just the outer wood - has to be like sharp nails and broken glass to him, and he's playing fucking Chopin. And if whoever made that choice wasn't in deep enough to know what properly playing that sort of music does to you - and that's before we take into account what early-to-mid-20s does to musicians - then I'm glad for it. Because it gave us that scene.)

("And clenching your fist for the ones like us, who are oppressed by the figures of beauty; you fixed yourself, you said, Nevermind, we are ugly but we have the music.")

(Don't ask about my day.)
