Puttered a bit with the piece-in-progress. Made a date to talk about animation, and the music to be attached thereunto. Listened to some late Holmboe symphonies, and the Rakhmaninov First & Second Symphonies. The Budgie Whisperer, irregal and loving it. Which would be worse: Elton re-writing "Something in the Wind" again (for Liz Taylor, rest her soul); or — Elton trying to write something new? Kafka McNuggets with misjudicial dipping sauce. And extra napkins.
