studio musicians

Having just watched the final episode of LOST yesterday, I thought Alex Ross's blog posts about one of my favorite film composers today (Alias, Up), Michael Giacchino, deserved a link or two (wish I could read the whole article). I guess Patty liked it, too. Which brings to mind an interesting discussion we had a while back. There are a few sites and even a movie about studio musicians. I also really enjoyed watching Jimmy Kimmel Live last night--they even had a harpist join the band (I think maybe the one who played the score to LOST?).

I just had to fight the urge to correct a facebook friend's status. She said she was now happy to be an alumnus. I really wanted to tell her that she would actually be an alumna. But I didn't. Gabrielle = total dork.

Orchestras: Ladies' Day

This article was going around facebook today--very fascinating, makes me so grateful to the women who went before me. Also a little pissed off at a certain older conductor.

I actually kinda like those Swiffer ads featuring the anthropomorphized cleaning tools.
