I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

great painting music, bryce..
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:12pm um:

now there's clearly a laser gun being fired. laser guns in vermont. who knew?
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:13pm Carmichael:

Jeez, someone finally took the kettle off the boil!
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:13pm ben drinken:

did goldstein do a stick season and mud season? mud season is in the early spring when all the snow melts and we get rain turning the ground into thick mud. stick season is in the late fall when all the pretty leaves are gone and you just see sticks and dark skies.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:14pm bruceleh:

Great coding music too, none of that silly lyrics or beat to distract me.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

what's the next season, you suppose?
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:15pm um:

i do miss the smell of mud season, though. i used to live just under the border of vermont, in western mass.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:18pm Ike:

Mud season is grodey. A hiking buddy once got a great deal on a weekend condo in Killington -- because it was mud season. I tried to tell him. We ended up hiking knee-deep in melting snow patches with oozing muck underneath. But other than that, I *love* VT.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:18pm βrian:

Vermont misses me.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:20pm ben drinken:

oh, surgaring season. but it is about the same time as mud season. smells great with the woodsmoke in the air boiling sap.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:20pm BSI:

Having done time in Maine, I knows me some mud season.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:21pm Hugo:

This is off an interview:

The experience of living out in the woods put you in touch with things many of us have forgotten, I imagine.

Oh, I think I can say that our value system is way off. We're so fortunate, but we're so wasteful. The environment is only going to give us so much. We're too much of a consumer society, we don't think about the waste we make. I have a lot of strange habits and they all come out of living in Vermont. When I shave I take a little bowl of hot water. I don't keep lots of water running. You don't just dump waste on the street – can I use this for something else, start the fire with it or something. When I go shopping why do I need a plastic bag every time? I take my own bag. All this came out of living in the environment.

Living without electricity also means living without recordings of music, of course.

Yes, but even today I only have a certain number of CDs. Some I listen to again, but many I listen to and pass on. I don't listen much, I'm too busy playing. Living in the woods opened up my life, opened up my ears to all kinds of nuances of sound, the wind in the trees, textures. I try to capture that in The Seasons: Vermont. It's like the Judson Dance Theater experience again: these are our lives, and we're living in the world of sound and light and smell. It's not high art, it's more the experience of who you are totally, rather than thinking about some idea of perfect. I'm not interested in perfect. It must be very boring. I just want my life to be continually open, so that in death I'll just disappear. Leave no footsteps behind, no memorial. Just like a cloud, passing.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:21pm nic:

vermont is well known as being the only US state that allows open carry of laser guns.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

in Cleveland we have rust season. Doesn't smell as nice.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:21pm leatherface:

as a kid in bernardston, ma. it meant bike riding season would soon begin.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:22pm Robert:

Was that cap pistol a branch breaking?
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:24pm leatherface:

one can carry laser guns openly. but with said laser guns one is only allowed to shoot obnoxious new yorker types who head to vermont to "hunt".
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:27pm ben drinken:

many vermonters leave out T's in speech. sometimes I hear people talk about goin hn'n (hunting). almost like a grunt.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:29pm βrian:

A favorite Vermont memory:
"By jeesus, that was louder 'n a cow pissing on a flat rock."
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:34pm bruceleh:

Nah, the next season is the Iodine 131/Cesium 137 season.
It might last a while, too.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:35pm Handsome Harry:

There's that cow again.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:35pm tahomajohn:

Sound like venomous vermin vivifying virtual vaccuous vendettas to me. But what do i know.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:36pm up on the farm:

"when i walk in the barn he was standin' up on a wheelbarrow having his way with one of the heifers. so i says 'you want me to wheel you down to the next one when you're done?'"
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:38pm ben drinken:

up on the farm: that's in mayo season
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:39pm up on the farm:

  Fri. 4/15/11 1:46pm bryce:

  Fri. 4/15/11 1:48pm Joe voltage:

My folks would freak out.
  Fri. 4/15/11 1:49pm Joe voltage:

  Fri. 4/15/11 2:06pm βrian:

Am I the only one dancing?
  Fri. 4/15/11 2:15pm BSI:

Nay, Brian: The koi are doing a spastic, apocalyptic jig. They form bolts of golden lightning across the pond. ...... their leader speaks....... they demand a sacrifice....
  Fri. 4/15/11 2:34pm Celtic Wolf Bane:

this playlist is ridiculously awesome and is getting me through work! thanks!
  Fri. 4/15/11 2:37pm bryce:

  Fri. 4/15/11 2:47pm Brian in UK:

Mr Bryce, have you ever let Peter Maxwell-Davies' Eight Songs for a Mad King through the door? It has oblique links to Pierrot Lunaire.
  Fri. 4/15/11 2:48pm bryce:

no i haven't — but that's a SUPER CRAZY stage show!!!!
  Fri. 4/15/11 2:49pm bryce:

i think. isn't that the one?
  Fri. 4/15/11 2:52pm Brian in UK:

I saw the world prem in '68' or '69 in London. It sure was tantilising and demanding. The musicians in cages whilst George the Third hovered around them.
  Fri. 4/15/11 2:55pm bryce:

hahaaaaaaa amazing......
  Fri. 4/15/11 2:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:
