From the Album: Chavez Sings Fischer!

First track: Byrne, Donald - Fischer, Robert James (1957)

("I consider this to be my cover version of the greatest poem ever written, with some especially high notes.  (If you don't believe me, check out stanza 17.)  As always, a cover version can't be as great as the original, but I gave it my all.  Dylan always said to only cover the classics.  Well, this is a classic." ---Chavez)

The Batcave

Working on music, writing, reading, and watching old Columbia reels on the big wall.

Making loops and beats.

Beats and loops.

Put one on and move to the collage.

New Essential: The Trial of Patty Hearst

I was so excited when it finally came in the mail.

Expensive.  Huge book.

Around 800 pages.

But, the most exciting thing about the book is that this book does not describe the trial of Patty Hearst.  It is the trial.

Meaning it is the entire transcript of the trial, with listing of the exhibits used at the trial.

An unbelievable learning tool.

Arguments, advocacy, and examinations.

You couldn't ask for more.
