Oh rascal children of Gaza. You who constantly disturbed me with your screams under my window. You who filled every morning with rush and chaos. You who broke my vase and stole the lonely flower on my balcony. Come back, and scream as you want and break all the vases. Steal all the flowers. Come back.. Just come back..
– Khaled Juma, a Palestinian poet from Gaza.

More than 600 Palestinians are no longer with us in the space of 14 days, 25% of whom were children. May God bless the little darlings and may He grant their parents sabr. (via yarabirham)

The power of the Eucharist to unite people is amazing. Tonight I communed with someone with white dreads.

good luck! holst is a good composer to try to jump back into that kinda thing id guess. very folky and hymny.

Some of his stuff. This was written right before he died, so while it is mostly folk-ish, there’s a bit of the Wagnerian and 20th century influence there (but only a little bit). Mostly, though, I’m just an idiot, lol! Basically, I need to relearn harmonic analysis. We didn’t really do true Schenkerian analysis in school, so I should probably just learn that????

I’m trying to analyze a piece of music I’m hoping to teach this school year (Holst’s Brook Green Suite), and I’m realizing how I don’t remember jack shit about harmonic analysis… 

I was not a great theory student…

(I would have liked to crop some of these gifs (like the accent ones) to make them more accurate but alas, I lack the skills.)

the glissando one though…

I feel like this is relevant.

sigmastolen, relevant to your interests

I will probably use these in class…

I don’t think this song gets much better than this. Elaine Stritch performing “The Ladies Who Lunch” before it gathered all the baggage of being her signature song.

I’m hearing from reliable sources that Elaine Stritch has passed away. A moment of silence would be the least appropriate response, so instead, I’d like to propose a toast.

Here’s to the one and only lady who lunched, there will never be another like her.

I’ll drink to that.
