      Don’t have a selection for Bloodhound, but what do you think about this for a selection for NAR?

      “This is a video of a performance of the piece of music that is called 4′33″ (ie, four minutes and thirty-three seconds). At the risk of spoiling the surprise, this is an orchestra playing silence in three movements for 4 and a half minutes. It is quite amazing to see an entire orchestra get paid to play nothing at all.”

      Sound like the NAR orchestra?

      I know about Cage, but that’s the first time I had seen a “performance.” If you want to gauge the success of the Marxist idea, there it is. Not the audience, not the orchestra, not even the conductor had the courage to stand up and say, “This is a vicious fraud, a complete betrayal of the entire catalog human achievement.” An atrocious, horrifying display a human gutlessness — but a complete triumph for those who did the gutting. How could Communist Marxists and National Socialist Marxists get away with 160 million political murders? You’ll find the answer by listening to that cowardly silence.
