Re: 1199: "Silence"

It's time that all musicians on this planet get sued by John Cage's lawyers for copyright infringement! All of those pirate bastards use samples from 4'33'' without paying royalties! Heh. I used to have a Flash cartoon series about a local TV news team, and the top story in what would end up being ...

Re: 1199: "Silence"

<pedanticstatement> Technically, 4'33" is not silence- it's the sounds that occur in the time frame bracketed as its performance. She doesn't need to be in a white cube, which in fact is not silent, assuming stick figures breathe and have beating hearts. Cage was interested in the fact that the...

Re: 1192: "whistlin'"

hwæt I mostly found odd be-did that the final 3 16th-notes have beams of two different thicknesses. As far as I ken, that has no musical meaning. But I could be wrong, and if so, I hope someone woll explain that bit of notation to the rest of us. I think Randall's alt-text is a disclaimer that &quo...

There were a few pixels in newpix 173 which could either be splashing or stick figure...foot? End of leg?

Re: 1190: "Time"

Words! Yay! BUT WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?! (What if it has absolutely no meaning at all and we were all just suckered into making this immense conversation for nothing?) Someone referenced Cage's 4' 33" earlier...a more appropriate art music reference to the comic and our responses might be Ives'...

I liked the earlier crazy straw designs better, before they got all commercialized and standardized.

Re: 1079: "United Shapes"

As someone who grew up on Cape Cod, it's always an arm. I like the elephant trunk, but it's shaped exactly like a flexed right arm. Maybe the dude could be riding the Powerthirst Plane made out of biceps. Incidentally, that's one of the ways my wife and I first bonded- I'm from Cape Cod, she's from ...
