Walking home from work through park i chanced upon string quartet at bandshell. a couple of drops signaled possible rain and i was bored anyway so i walked up winding steps to twisted tree area and spied summer stage set-up--big mouse ears like buboes symptomatic of disney plague. got as far as east drive when rodent soundcheck drowned out birdsong and no doubt overpowered simple wood instruments back at the bandshell playing for old couple wrapped in blankets and curious skaters who pausd in their repetitive loops to appreciate the display. fucking disney, what do they care, blaring chirpy warbling tunes masquerading as the sublime when really what it comes down to is selling flavorless shit to brainwashed kids.
