[update: I fixed the link to the Rice Krispies commercial -- sorry about the bad link!]

Posts to come:

Hamburgers and rock and roll.

Twenty pounds of baby.

Throat singing extravaganza.

In the meantime, tragedy and comedy elsewhere:

T: An astonishing personal account of the performance, recording, and CD release of a January 1938 concert where the Vienna Philharmonic, Bruno Walter conducting, played Mahler’s 9th; I can't imagine a better evocation of recording's power to leap across time.

C: Via an Altercation correspondent, this Rice Krispies commercial from 1964 with music by the Rolling Stones -- great rock and roll and lively visuals too (the Stones aren't in the picture).
