Blog with Hand-Raising

The composer Tom Johnson used to perform a Lecture with Hand-Raising, during which audience members were invited to raise their hands when they heard something they liked, upon which Johnson would repeat the approved passage. The text of the lecture, I believe, concern repetition. (Another one of Johnson's lectures was the Lecture with Singing, likewise with a self-similar text concerning the curious and inexplicable fact that everytime he gave the lecture someone in the audience would suddenly start singing.)

So from now on, this is officially a Blog with Hand-Raising. If you read something you like, raise your hand, and I'll repeat it. Starting now.

Oh come on. Stop with the singing.
