Last year, on this page, I composed and published the score to a new piece, one a day, each day, for the month of November. As foolish as I am, I won't repeat that particular folly, but I will take requests for this month... So what'll it be? A score? A scam? A rant? A recipe? A limerick? The key to the cabinet that Clov couldn't find? An enigma without a variation? The right-hand part to Ravel's left-hand concerto? The secret to a life well spent? The sum of my ill-gotten gains? The true price of good fortune? The taste of mustard on a raw turnip? Why you can do anything if you have six trumpets? The sad and secret life of the ne'er-do-well Johann Gottfried Bernhard Bach? The effects of radiation therapy on Morbus Ledderhose? Seven ways to force a card? How to slice an onion without tears?
