Catme 13/Glass Effect 79 — 4'33" through Google Glass (Homage to John Cage)*

There are those who find John Cage's 1952 composition 4'33" (below) absolutely stupid and pointless.

The overlap of those people with the Venn diagram of those who find my daily 4:01 a.m. Catme 13/Glass Effect videos — now in their twelfth week, the world's longest-running GlassTV series (you could look it up — but you wouldn't find a whole lot. But I digress...) — equally stupid and pointless.

Oh, and don't forget boring.

To you I say, "Here's your hat — what's your hurry?"


Cage remarked, "Everything we do is music."

That includes my Gray Cat videos.


*You will note that even though I made every effort to end my Google Glass video at precisely 4'33" — the elapsed time on the Glass screen at the moment I pressed the "Stop" button — the video turned out to last 4'35".

I apologize.

Perhaps insead a separate website CATOFJOE.COM for the painful obsessive, never-ending cat vids?

"Everything we do is music."

But not all music is worth hearing more than once, and no one wants to hear all the music everyone else makes.

Enough with the cat videos.

Hat in hand,

Tremendous dynamic progression, yet with thematic integrity, soul-stirring, compelling.

Can I go now?
