09FEB2019 – Quote of the Day

This goes for everything in art, music, cinema and literature too, all a sham.


The notion that the public accepts or rejects anything in modern art is merely romantic fiction. The game is completed and the trophies distributed long before the public knows what has happened.

So true. That’s why we need to support quality art like this album: https://www.amazon.com/Contest-Winner-Tyler-James-Cook/dp/B01B8HWYX4

Piano-based pop-rock. My music has been compared to Billy Joel, Elton John, Ben Folds, Meat Loaf, and–by two little ladies at church–Liberace. That was really just a shameless plug, haha. You can listen for free to the whole thing on Spotify, too, and here: https://tjcookmusic.bandcamp.com/album/contest-winner-ep

“Too bad about the Liberace thing” Heh!

Ha! Yes, that made me laugh, too. They were very sweet, little old ladies; I think they intended it as a compliment. It was not because of any sartorial decision on my part, I think I just played the hymns with some panache.
