However, I was thinking of the 1 train going to 181st Street in Washington Heights making all the local stops as a more pertinent measure of distance.

The drummer Keith Moon used to smash up the drumset as well and blew up his drums on the Smothers Brothers show.

Hendrix was famous for burning guitars on stage. The iconic photo we all remember is from the Monterrey Pop festival.

Evidently, John Hiatt’s song Perfectly Good Guitar wasn’t the hit I thought it was.

In any previous time in history but this one, with Iran speaking as it does, Israel would have long ago turned Iran into a burnt match. With no apologies. It is only in this the modern liberal age that the barbarians must be allowed to surround the city, besiege it, gather at the gate and must be on the verge of breaking in, before anything can be done about them by a rescuing force. But Israel could and probably should have already turned Iran into a burnt match. Other than that, I agree. This video is unfair. Put pianos around the better areas of the NYC and compare that to pianos put in an Arab city in Israel. Then you will see the reverse.

It is about 15 subway stops from Carnegie Hall.

It’s everything the NYT loves about art, performance art, loneliness, detachment, despair the impermanence of everything. Just remember though, it’s precisely what they want see happen to Israel.
