“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Romanticism 20: Keats and Shelley and OOO

OMG Allan Holdsworth's “Water on the Brain” starts this, which I was playing for a student who was curious about my Holdsworth hat. It has the best bass solo, by Jeff Berlin. And Chad Wackerman (great name for a drummer right?!).

Then I went into “What is an object?” and the class went quite well as you will hear...

I almost bought a version of the Wedgewood Portland Vase online. And I played a bit of Futurama.
