Quote

Because novels don't get yanked out of the front of the brain, they can't be bullied into existence by increased focus or a Calvinist work ethic. A lot of what you need is in that great junkshop of memory and experience and emotion that's located in the back of the mind, and it's a place that can't be systematized, made orderly. You can't go in there looking for one thing and hope to find it. All you can do is browse, see what looks interesting, hold it up to the dim light and ask yourself what its relevance might be to the task at hand.

Eric Lippert, explainer extraordinnaire, has started a series that we might call "Fabulous Adventures in Music." Knowing Eric, we can assume that his descriptions of, say, the physics of music will be as enlightening and entertaining as his exegeses on programming and math and code security. Check it out.

Bonus points for those who get the Jobim reference.
