Distractions, reflections

David Ing, at large … Sometimes, my mind wanders

2007/06/30 Rickie Lee Jones, Danforth Music Hall

Rickie Lee Jones has been receiving some recent notoriety on her newest album, The Sermon on Exhibition Boulevard. With her tour making a stop at the Danforth Music Hall — a soft seat theatre where we could reserve seats! — I snagged some seats near the front for Diana and myself.

Rickie Lee was in good humour, and played most of her new songs, as well as deconstructing some of her well-known hits. One feature that we hadn’t seen before was her using a bow on her guitar for a few tunes.

His bass player ( Joey Maramba?) also used a bow a few times.

Rickie also played a keyboard (and later the grand piano), accompanied by her lead guitar player (Peter Atanasoff?).

I enjoyed hearing Rickie Lee create — and recreate — music that I’ve heard in recordings many times. It’s great to hear musicians continue to evolve their art. I had read that she though that her last album, The Evening of My Best Day, would be her last, due to financial issues with her management. I’m glad to see her back in Toronto with a smaller band. Talent prevails.

      Satire can be an antidote, says Prof. #PaulBabbitt @muleriders , to #bullshit (c.f. rhetoric; hypocrisy; crocodile tears; propaganda; intellectual dishonesty; politeness, etiquette and civility; commonsense and conventional wisdom; symbolic votes; platitudes and valence issues).

      If we don’t first know “what is system is”, how do we approach an intervention? #MichaelCJackson OBE and Dr. #LuisGSambo appreciate the difference between “systems thinking” (plural) and “system dynamics” (singular), and suggest expanding theory with Critical #SystemThinking in Health Systems Research. An ignorance of history is, if anything, even more pronounced among those authors […]

      The field theory in psychology by #KurtLewin 1943 derives from classical field theory (viz. electromagnetism and gravitation), predating quantum field theory (viz. subatomic particles). For psychology, Lewin wrote in 1943 how history (and a subjective view of the future) matters. It is correct that field theory emphasizes the importance of the fact that any event […]
