This is episode 2.

There is no feedback as of yet (I'm recording this on Saturday, September 13th, 2008,) not that I'm expecting any because the episodes haven't even aired yet. Get real after all.

Last week was a mishmosh of Chopin and assorted minor hits (Like I just just got winged by Handel man, and it hurts like [bleep]!)

As much as I'd want to do otherwise, I'm supposed to distract you, while not directly engaging your minds in open rebellion and plotting insurection against the "Powers That Be"

(And who said an education was a safe path to knowledge? Not me. [

I'm a child of the 'Sixties when foment and dissent were in the air.{

Which 'Sixties, the nineteen sixties and all those student rebellions that scarred the educational system of France to this day,;

the eighteen sixties with the Civil War, the War of Secession, raging all around claiming lives;

the seventeen sixties and the war of independence giving birth to this very country. (

No, education is never a "safe" path, but it is often is the "only" path to a better tomorrow. :-)}])

We begin with a future classic,

"The Future" by "Leonard Cohen" from the album:"The Future" (6:43)

There's still no promos.
