I have always preferred mythology to history. Because history is made up of truths which eventually turn into lies. Mythology is made up of lies that eventually become truths.

“Identifying oneself as a “grandma” is a growing phenomenon, particularly among twentysomethings who refuse to leave their apartments over the weekend.”
Hipsters have been embracing granny chic for a while now—”I’ma take your grandpa’s style” says Macklemore in Thrift Shop—but it’s ageist to assume there’s any such thing as a granny lifestyle, let alone that it involves nothing but knitting and vegging.
Today Bach’s dynamism fascinates young people. But who among them takes the trouble of dismantling, one by one, the ensemble of voices, the polyphonic complex in order to plunge into each isolated voice and extract all its flavor? It seems that what appeals most to them is the dynamic bloc. This kind of dynamism can be found in a concerto of Hindemith or of Falla because their density does not stand to be disassembled; there it exists through accumulation. But Bach’s dynamism is of a very different nature.
