daily kaddish: on Wagnertube


So moving chaos continues here at Beit Malkhut East, and I’m still tired and grumpy. One horn is in its case because we’ve been going to daily gigs. The other is still in its case from having been hidden away for its own safety. I’m tired and cranky, and getting the studio Mac out of its box and back into ProTools duty is about all I can stand.

Meanwhile, my Wagnertube co-owner Alicia has returned two tuben to me (they’ve just gotten back from a rental), so I’m tripping on them as I move about the cabin. I decide to get one out for the daily kaddish. So here it is, a Jewish prayer performed on an instrument invented by the famously (perhaps conveniently) anti-Semitic megalomaniacal genius of an asshole Mr Richard Wagner, who might be rolling over in his grave at the thought of such a thing.

I’m okay with that.
