Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Chico and Santa

"I was fresh out of basic training (Fort Ord, CA) when I saw Chico Hamilton at the Gilded Cage in Sacramento, in 1965. I was with another soldier from my training unit who was in uniform. I was in civvies. (We would drive together in a couple days to Fort Gordon, GA for our AIT.) We were sitting down front during a Chico drum solo when he looked over at us, sized up my friend, and started playing a march rhythm, acknowledging us in the middle of his solo!"--Lee Santa
