Four Minutes of Being at the Westlake Mall


  1. If John Cage and Andy Warhol had a child, Quinn, you would be him!



  2. Sure … why not? Re: Cage—I can name one piece by him, a Piano Concerto. Not because I know it, but because of what it did for Lutoslawski. “”those few minutes were to change my life decisively. It was a strange moment … I suddenly realized that I could compose music differently from that of my past.” After all, one never knows / How the Holy Ghost blows.

  3. John Cage, Concert for Piano and Orchestra

    I can’t say it’s the best thing I’ve ever heard, but it’s not so bad. I’d rather listen to this than, say, One Direction. Whose music is mostly diatonic, I think.

    • Dude (Dude!), it sucks.

    • But you definitely have me: This or OD (does the Drew Brees commercial count?)…

      Would you rather put a handful of ticks in your mouth or lick a homeless man’s armpits?


      • Quin Finnegan says

        A handful of ticks sounds like something Cage might have tried in one of his pieces, so yeah … that seems to me a pretty clear choice!

  4. Quin Finnegan says

    And …

    4:27 of Being with Andy Warhol Eating a Hamburger

    So, yep. I think you’re on to something there.

  5. Rufus McCain says

    Some of the best acting I’ve ever seen.

  6. Quin Finnegan says

    Yeah, I’m most proud of how we worked in the guy with the cart. You hear it … you hear it some more … and then, just when you’ve given up hope of ever actually seeing it … BAM!
