"good old Golden Rule days"


*The illustration is the 1907 sheet music for "School Days" written that year by Will Cobb and Gus Edwards. A sentimental remembrance of those bygone days, the version we played by Louis Jordan was recorded in 1949 and took jumpin' liberty with the verses, but kept the chorus intact!

**The (Golden) Rule of Three was a shorthand version for a particular form of cross-multiplication, often taught to students by rote. 

***I  fondly remember getting psychologically tortured by the fine nuns of my Catholic grammar school, being physically beaten by the role-model Jesuit priests of my early high school years and transversely, the names and faces of the few teachers and broadcast instructors and professionals that were great at their jobs, taught me well and made a difference in my life! 

"Teach Your Children well, their father's hell, did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams, they one they fix, the one you'll know by"

~Listen, Listen, Listen~

Transmission 8714

Wake up
Today will be shorter than the last
Your heart beats faster than the seconds that pass you
Nightime will soon arrive.

Just as brightness merges into night, the lines that separate our themes are as close as the twilight between the beats of a blurred pulse. Transform with Laurie Anderson, Wayne County & The Electric Chairs, Massive Attack, Brian Wilson, Q65, The Eyes, Jim Carroll Band, Japan and William Burroughs.

"before the darkness there's a moment of light"


* According to the American Heart Association, the average heart at rest beats 60 to 80 times per minute.

**Twilight is the illumination of the Earth's lower atmosphere when the Sun itself is not directly visible because it is below the horizon. Twilight is produced by sunlight scattering in the upper atmosphere, illuminating the lower atmosphere so that the surface of the Earth is neither completely lit nor completely dark. The word "twilight" is also used to denote the periods of time when this illumination occurs.

***Psychologist William James, in his 1890 text "Principles of Psychology", wrote that as we age, time seems to speed up because adulthood is accompanied by fewer and fewer memorable events. When the passage of time is measured by “firsts”- the lack of new experiences in adulthood, James morosely argues, causes “the days and weeks [to] smooth themselves out…and the years grow hollow and collapse” (sigh). A good argument to try more new things (or old things with new people) and slow it all down!
