A little more on Satie

A very good friend turned me on to this lovely little website a few months ago, and I stumbled back on it today while going through my inbox- that once a year event. It’s always fascinating to consider your long dead artistic heroes as *gasp* actual people who had to fill their lives with all manner of things that weren’t necessarily musical or artistic. Often times this seemed to have been accomplished with some sort of debauchery (I hear Wagner regularly went on some pretty epic panty raids, although I’m sure he referred to them much more intensely and in German…), but I suppose Satie’s sensibility would beg something seemingly mundane. Anyway the site itself is worth a look, as it’s full of good nuggets.
