well this is very sweet
On the day of Hitler’s suicide, a squad of American soldiers found themselves face to face with the eighty-year-old composer and conductor Richard Strauss. Alex Ross reflects on the story of the encounter: http://nyr.kr/UqKUES
“Why do I find these tales mesmerizing? Perhaps it has to do with the awkward relationship that any child of the postwar American empire has with the old European colossus of classical music. No matter how deeply we bow before it, we feel like intruders, pulling into the driveways of the great composers and threatening them with eviction.”

the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to
pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags
in another plastic bag despite the fact that I will probably
never need this many plastic bags in my adult life
I thought I was the only one. Now I’ve learned to recycle my plastic bags but those two years of moving in and out of the dorms, I would get everything all sorted and then realize I had an enormous pile of ziploc bags all stored in a ziploc bag, with absolutely no use. Just because.
Elaine Stritch rests her bike, reads a note, almost causes a riot.
NEW YORK, June 26—TOLD TO KEEP HER SHIRT ON – Blonde Elaine Stritch, understudy to Ethel Merman in the Broadway hit, “Call Me Madam,” wears halter and shorts which cause her arrest in Central Park. Today she was fined $1 and told by Magistrate Emilio Jones, “A beautiful girl like you could cause a small riot and cause a large crowd to collect by removing your shirt.” “Well,” she replied, “I was there all day and nothing happened.” (AP, 1951)
An inspiration to aspiring dames, broads and good-time girls everywhere. RIP, Ms Stritch.
She was phenomenal.
I’ll love you forever, Mrs. Donaghy. <3
