A Key Lime stream of consciousness
Authentic Key Lime Pie is not
green but yellow. Limes grow
badly (and yellow) in the Keys;
scrub trees produce unmarketable
fruits. Key dwellers make do and
Making do with soft drinks in
plastic bottles instead of cans
saves an incredible amount of
money. A six-pack of 12 oz. cans
costs about 4 cents per ounce,
while a six-pack of 16 oz. plastic
bottles costs about 2 cents per
Plastic surgery in its mildest
form is ear piercing.
Igor Stravinsky's ballet "Le Sacre
du Printemps" is profound caco
phony. To some it is ear piercing.
Primitive rhythms drive the sacri
ficial maiden to dance herself to
death in a pagan spring ritual. At
the work's premiere, Parisians
rioted. They didn't know genius
when they heard it.
Our pagan spring rituals don't
generally cause riots, just town
council meetings. All we want to
do is dance (and drink) out at Pi
Kappa Phi; Stravinsky has nothing
to do with it. I just don't see the
I do see a problem, however,
with waiting for Godot, something
we all seem to be doing when
we're not taking part in pagan
spring rituals. The cold truth is
that Godot may never show up
at all, or he may be a balding Bon
Jovi fan with absolutely nothing
Like John Cage. He wrote "I have
nothing to say, and I say it." So
instead he composed a piece for
12 radios. (Each radio is played by
two people, one controlling
volume and the other controlling
frequency according to the mus
ical score. Whatever sounds emit
from the contraptions are the
music Cage envisions.)
Randomness is a virtue. Every
thing has a hidden connection to
everything that the mind may see
without being conscious of it.
But why is wholesomeness a
virtue? Having the "simple health
or vigor of normal domesticity" is
nothing to stop the presses for.
Wholesome family entertainment
most likely has no redeeming
artistic value, or else the entertain
ment in question would be adver
tised for these qualities rather
than for its wholesomeness. Much
of what is billed as wholesome
family entertainment is worthless
Like Pat Robertson. What has
the man got going for him besides
being fairly wholesome family
entertainment? Anyone who
advocates higher birth rates in
order to save Social Security
dwells under a rock. He also
opposes child care by anyone but m tne sun witn a Jimmy Buttett
