Misc. Items of Interest (To Me, Anyway)

Violin bad girl Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg now has her own record label, NSS Music. NS-S is the subject of the documentary Speaking in Strings. (Note: At least one of the captions in that film misspells "Juilliard" as "Julliard.") If you've viewed the film, you know she's a little bit wacky, but how can you have great art w/o at least a little bit of wack?

If you are really really really into George Bush, then you might like to listen to The Environmental Sounds of Crawford, Texas. I like this comment from the creator on the album's Amazon page: The original idea was to release old recordings that even Rhino wouldn't consider.

Want to seem erudite? When I do, I just check out the Samuel Johnson Sound Bite Page. I wonder what Boswell would have done with a blog.
