My favourite Brubeck album is Time Out from 1959 and its follow-up Time Further Out from 1961.

And for those who are not full on jazz fans try "Bernstein Plays Brubeck Plays Bernstein" from 1961. A fantastic collaboration between the Dave Brubeck Quartet and the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Leonard Bernstein. Side 1 features "Dialogues for Jazz Combo and Orchestra," a four-part suite composed by Brubeck's brother, Howard Brubeck, while Side 2 contains five Bernstein-Stephen Sondheim compositions from "West Side Story."

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Never try to teach a pig to sing - it wastes your time and annoys the pig.

"These are the things to keep in mind. These are not just academic exercises. We're not analyzing the media on Mars or in the eighteenth century or something like that. We're dealing with real human beings who are suffering and dying and being tortured and starving because of policies that we are involved in, we as citizens of democratic societies are directly involved in and are responsible for, and what the media are doing is ensuring that we do not act on our responsibilities, and that the interests of power are served, not the needs of the suffering people, and not even the needs of the American people who would be horrified if they realized the blood that's dripping from their hands because of the way they are allowing themselves to be deluded and manipulated by the system."
