"The Drifters", too, was a nice book that captured the zeitgeist of the Viet Nam generation. Remember Little Casino and Big Casino?

I forgot about The Drifters.  I liked that one.

Hitler was like most people I've observed in undergraduate art school today. They can copy anything, but the real creative process eludes them.

You are describing far more than just art students.
Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.

GO,  have a listen to "the port of amsterdam" by john denver... i bet u find it Attones for the sappy simple songs lol. We like a lot of the same songs so im curious what u think.

Sorry Unc, Didn't do too much for me on first listen, kind of very loudly sung I thought with a lack of anything changing, sort of like a monotone rant. My search on the net keeps bringing it up as a David Bowie hit rather than Denver, but I found it.

To be honest I never heard of the song before tonight, and am usually not enamored with a song on first hearing. will give it another shot in the morning with coffee, as you say we usually are on the same brain wave, but have a feeling this is one of our differences of taste.

Well in terms of composition beethoven he isnt... but i like anyghing sung with passion and he channels ths hard lives  of 15th century dutch sailors  very well. the gold vein in the attachment is not an inducement to agree of course.

"Caribbean"  is a fine book, and full of well researched historical facts. I have a signed copy, autographed while  Michener was in Virgin Gorda. It's a great companion piece to read along with Herman Wouk's "Don't Stop the Carnival", which is my other favorite fiction book about the Caribbean. (I have a copy of that one HW signed to his brother and sister-in-law.)

"The Drifters", too, was a nice book that captured the zeitgeist of the Viet Nam generation. Remember Little Casino and Big Casino?

As GO knows, I'm sure, Michener was himself a big art collector, and owned scads of 60's era abstract expressionism. Austin was Michener's last real home, and many of those pieces are in the local art museum at UT.

They mostly suck.

In contrast, Michener's work gets better with age.

IMO, Michener gets a very bad rap. Ever read, "The Source?" It's about the history of the Jews and the land of Israel from before monotheism to the birth of Israel. The Source uses, as its central device, a fictional tell or archaelogical dig. Utterly fascinating for a 15 year old kid.

Hi Unc, I get your reasons for liking, but just too loud and what I would call shrill for me.

Whatever, we still have one of our favorites to enjoy.  :exp-laugh: :exp-laugh: :exp-grin: ;D ::)

No, I have yet to read "The Source". I'll have to add it to the list. I did go through a phase when I read a bunch of Jewish guys. Bellow. Roth, Potok. Those are the ones I remember from teen hood.

Later I'd graduate to Kinky Friedman. He's a true intellectual Texas Jewboy. "Armadillos and Old Lace" is his magnum opus, imho.
