In a blog essay posted on the Web site of The American Scholar before Mr. Mitchell's death, Mr. Zinsser said Mr. Mitchell's approach to broken-down pianos (which musicians sometimes encounter on tour) illustrated his approach to life. "I learned long ago that it does no good to complain," Mr. Zinsser recalled Mr. Mitchell telling him. Instead, listen to the keys and put their flatness or sharpness to use. "You say, 'What does it do?' " said Mr. Mitchell, sounding an imaginary clinker on a piano. " 'Will it do anything? Let's check it out' - NY Times obit, reference to http://theamericanscholar.org/what-does-it-do/#.Uj3ivWR4ZEu

Welcome Ken A!

There is a Weenie Campbell - but no one has ever seen him.  We've devoted our lives to figuring out who he is  and where he comes from.   ;D

(Hopefully, someone will write up the history of Weenie Campbell -- Frontpage?)

Yes, we like to optimize, as mentioned -  housing is complicated and difficult (State Bureaucracy), Jed is the guy to talk to.  There is clout in numbers though - a "conference" of 30 rules.

cheers and glad you made it.

Slack offered 'hopefully':

> Hopefully, someone will write up the history of Weenie

I am somehwat familar with the legend of Weenie Campbell. And as it happens, despite the fact that Weenie is currently on tour in blues-starved rural Romania, I have been able to arrange a telephone interview. So if anyone has questions for or about Weenie, I'll try to get the answers.

Man, I hope he doesn't do a no-show because these international conference calls are tricky to set up.

Cheers,
