Postscript to Nixon

The image of Nixon and Mao playing ping-pong comes from a website called--and full of nothing but-- Celebrities Playing Table Tennis. Pliable at On an Overgrown Path put up a photo of Schoenberg. Erich Leinsdorf is kicking up his heels here. The Rita Hayworth shots ain't bad either.

In the comments at Overgrown Path, I linked to one of my favorite composer pictures on the web: a shot of Villa-Lobos shooting billiards, lining up a behind-the-back shot with a cigar in his mouth and his hat pushed back on his head. Follow the thumbnail to where it's housed--KUSF radio's "Classics without Walls" show.

That's right -- two posts in one day! Is the blog on a comeback? Don't bet on it, but we'll see.

I love these! If you're Leinsdorf fan, John Gibbons has blogged about his view of music criticism here:
