    I am bein' deluged (happily, not complaining) by a German from another
list whose poetic-_schwer_ language - even in translation to English - is denser
than _dick_ Weber & Schoenberg all rolled into Brecht and Beckett.
    And I have read Weber' sociology texts in English translations, but this
takes the cake in terms utter "linguistic overload" (or O.D. - overdose).
    I think it might be bit easier to get the original German from him and
have one of you more capable German-fluents ::mutters "masochist-types" under
breath:: deal with him... eh?

So, since living is scrounging, the result of our efforts is to amass a pile of rubbish." - Chuang Tzu/Zhuangzi, China, 4th Century BCE "The most beautiful order is a heap of sweepings piled up at random." - Heraclitus, Greece, 5th Century BCE "...So what is life for? Life is for beauty and substance and sound and colour; and even those are often forbidden by law [socio-cultural conventions]. . .Why not be free and live your own life? Why follow other people's rules and live to please others?..." ~Lieh-Tzu/Liezi, Taoist Sage (c. 450- 375 BCE) "Taoism in a nutshell: Shit Happens. Roll with the Punches.

California surferBeatnik, c.1950's/1960's Voices of the Past: At its peak, the Tang Dynasty (618-906 CE) of China a mixture of cultural influences were reflected in the music of the times.People traveled from other countries, including Japan, Mongolia, India, Korea & Turkey, to learn about the Tang culture.But the multi-racial, multi-cultural era waned at the end of the Tang.China,one of the greatest cultural & military powers in history, began to close in on itself, the rulers closed the country's borders - fearing the destruction of their civilization.The rich, diverse music of the Tang, along with that of the surrounding cultures, was lost or destroyed. Bits have been found & the rest is theory & re-construction...
