10 things worth sharing: Advice from Mel Brooks, how to draw an Exquisite Corpse, a close reading of Auden, the anatomy of a song, and more...
First time I've encountered the Close Reading series - not a New York Times reader down here in Australia - I adored this - thanks so much for pointing the way! 🙏✨
I’m almost finished reading Dave Ghrol’s The Storyteller, so I’m eager to read more music books. Thanks for the tip on Anatomy of a Song, I’m curious to check it out next!
I love learning about the song influences! It sends me down the most fascinating rabbit holes to some great music.
And I love the Mel Brooks story—and I realized I did that very thing at a job I had years ago that I loved but the boss was nuts! 😁 I can attest it works.
Do those Pentel pens come in colors? What pen did you use for your blue spirals? Look for my son, Benjamin Henretig, at SXSW 2022. He's a creative, like you, and a documentary filmmaker. Hope he can attend your March 18th presentation. He's currently doing a major film series on NFTs.
