Music, Footnotes & Ephemera

First section is chopped up from the title sequence to Tokyo Story (the Ozu film). Followed by The Bunker by Beirut and a polka from an odd little record by Federal Music Society. Then, back to the title sequence well: Shoot the Piano Player. We hear April by Akira Kosumura a couple of times. Blues for Elvin by John Coltrane. Grassland by Arkira Kosumura (which gets mixed in with a little snippet from the Eternal Sunshine Soundtrack). It ends on something else from the Eternal Sunshine soundtrack as well.

There’s a lot written about Weyman. The most fun things to read are the original newspaper accounts (there’s a fun one from the Milwaukee Sentinal on google books; you can find his obituary on NYtimes.com). But the most comprehensive thing I read was from a New Yorker profile from 1968 (which, incidentally, spends pages on literally psychoanalyzing Weyman).

    This is one of the best ones yet. The story structure is masterful and your telling really illicits a strong emotional response. Incredibly well dug up story – love the prankster tales.

    Great stuff as usual. However, I believe the killers were armed robbers, and not burglers. A small detail, but history is nothing if not a series of small details that add up to the big picture.

    Thanks for your efforts.
