chet w Aquarius (songs from the Musical 'Hair') (34) RE: Aquarius 11 Jan 98


I agree wholeheartedly. Do things in your own time. Repeating the past has consequences that are hard to predict. I am, among other things, a woodworker, and even though I love old things (especially musical instruments) I wouldn't try to copy them now. I design things in modern terms, although I don't even know what most of the genres mean (post-modern, etc) but I want my work to be from my time. Even when I sing an old song, I don't try to change it for the sake of change, but if I have a good original idea to incorporate into it, I do it. One nice thing though, in bookstores that cater to college students and other hip types, I can now find books by people like Jack Kerouac that haven't been available for decades.

Carry on, Chet W.
