I do this because it's fun. Lately I have been sometimes feeling obligated, like I was working much too hard. The world will be fine if I don't blog. So when I'm working too hard at it, I make it fun by trashing something.
So the question is why doesn't anyone laugh? What could possibly be funnier than defending equal temperament? Unless it's trashing Gluck? Come on. Haven't you wanted to say music history is all a fraud, that completely different people than the ones you are reading about are interesting?
My son says that somewhere a silent nerd is laughing.
