As a child, she wrote insults for children to use on one another, for the cost of a dime. She beat up a boy in high school who was bothering a younger girl, and also hit a nun. Solanas said that her grandfather was a violent alcoholic who often beat her.
Then, there's a Peter Himmelman concert where you never know what will happen.
Himmelman pauses after a song to ask the audience for questions. He shares his sharpest memories and deepest feelings with them.
The singer-songwriter will often spontaneously improvise lyrics and music to a fan suggestion. Then he'll tear apart the improvisation and fashion a better version. One time Himmelman sat down at the piano and fashioned a tune out of F.
Another time, he cooked eggs on stage in between songs and asked the audience to monitor the progress until they were ready. Then he served the eggs to his audience.
Once, Himmelman led his audience out of the club to a nearby park where he finished off his set. I'm attempting to dispel this existential sense of loneliness just for a moment, even if it doesn't last long.
Other Himmelfans are attracted to the artist's deep Jewish roots: Himmelman keeps shomer Shabbos-although that does not appear to have adversely affected his musical career.
Other Himmelfans consider him in the upper echelon of contemporary singer-songwriters. Yes, he's got great yichus: More to the point: Himmelman defines the popular songwriting craft: It's an unlikely -but perfect- fusion of spirituality and carnality.
As a long time Himmelfan, interviewing Peter by phone turns out to be as much a spontaneous event as his concerts. A paycheck says 'Peter we like you, we hear you'. A paycheck gives you a sense of freedom from the doubt that plagues every artist- that they're no good.
Somewhere in the back of your mind, there are days you feel like you're an imposter. So the paycheck disabuses you of that notion. If a song has to be made manifest by a date, then the song is going to have to be written. If there's no check, then you have to create these structures yourself.
From my perspective, that has been formed by Chassidus. Paying the bills can be as spiritual as davening in shul.The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels changed the world.

The first draft of this post was written on Feb 1, , 1 day before the point drop in the DJIA. (I write my posts weeks ahead).The post was written in response to reader’s comment, a concern along the lines of “I’m Scared Of A Crash Where Should I Put My Money?”..
Appropriately, his concern became the title of the post you’re currently reading, and then the market. There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside of you. – Maya Angelou. We can do no great things, only small things with great love..
– Mother Teresa. There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. – . I must admit my title for this article sounds scandalous and scammy, like something a Las Vegas-based email spam company would send out.
But it’s also completely accurate, because I really can teach you the best way to make money from the stock market all in one short blog post. Should I write this comment? Should I delete it? Zach_fell already wrote a comment parody of the original post, and he nailed it.
I mean, He. Fucking. Nailed. It. But I'm still typing this, so I guess the decision is already made. So I write this for the chance to amuse somebody. For the chance to amuse myself.
