That makes today St. Celia's Day.
The patron saint of music and I just happen to have inherited a crateload of gatefold-orama vinyl.

I begin my day with The Groundhogs Thank Christ For The Bomb

indeed it is and praise be to St. Cecilia - the patron saint of music.

might have expected the man with the ghetto blaster and pyramid logo to reply to this......

I used to have a job which involved sorting pieces of paper - each with a 7 digit number on - into numerical order. Nevermind 4 or 8 or 16 minutes, we did that shit for 8 hours! A day! It did not get less boring, it got more boring. Sometimes I would join in the chat about Eastenders even though I didn't watch the fucker, just to relieve the mind-numbing boredom of it all.

John Cage is just marveling about the wonders of exponential growth... those avant garde buffoons.
