Where was the blown-out-of-proportion title? Where did it never come from this time? What’s not the deal? Running out of rhetoric and provocative phrases to attract spam agents? Did we forget our meds again? (no)
Just getting a little tired of myself, finally (again) feeling bored. But I remembered refering to this tune the other day, and how much it can mean to realize that sometimes the examiners — in most of the seriously critical-judgment scenarios that we face as hurdles — are really mostly messing with your head to see if it falls apart, and you actually have better things to do than to let them, but don’t know it.
In college, Brubeck was nearly expelled when one of his professors discovered that he could not read sheet music. Several of his professors came forward arguing for his ability with counterpoint and harmony, but the school was still afraid that it would cause a scandal, and only agreed to let Brubeck graduate once he promised never to teach piano.
So that reminds us maybe somewhat of Albert Einstein and how school went. Dazingly, not always brilliantly when seen from the higher ups. Them up type people look down, since that is the only place besides their important selves that needs looking at. Or not at. Down at. Da town?
You need to hear some voices of many watered instruments in your fountainheads, that’s what. Please help yourself to one-half dozen minus one. All of that quad plus one is yours. Have a handful, too.

Don’t use them all in half of a place, now.
