It’s Friday, you know what they say: Here come the warm jets. Or at least that’s what Brian Eno says. Eno shows up on MwBC from time to time. His music is an obsession of mine, kind of like David Byrne’s, or Ale Asylum’s Mercy Gran Cru. I didn’t really know that anyone could be as obsessed with Eno’s effortlessly cool music until I discovered Continuum’s 33 1/3 book series.
I’ve heard really bad things about a lot of the other books in the series, but the in-depth analysis of Eno’s Another Green World is truly a work of art. Geeta Dayal studies electronic music and has two degrees from MIT (and a graduate degree from Columbia). Dayal really takes Eno’s music a step further, using it as a filter for her experiences and generating an entirely new worldview. She even read Julia Child’s The Art of French Cooking two entire times while only listening to Another Green World. That’s some serious dedication to Eno, and French cooking.
So let’s honor that dedication, and Eno’s own dedication to the study of cybernetics, with a Louie’s Demise from Milwaukee Brewing Company.
-Just a general observation. Has anyone else noticed that Goose Island is a lot more active on Twitter now?
