I have the original Tin Ear, that is to say, the First and Prime Tin Ear. So I like music that is guaranteed good because I have no way of finding out for myself. Old stuff like Haydn that there is positively no doubt about. On my own I wouldn’t know it from Music to Clean Up By.

I don’t have any preference yet though I think I like the kind that is straight up and down better than what slides around, if you know what I mean.

We are broke out with records now as Thomas sent me a box full out of his basement. All I can say about it is that all classical music sounds alike to me and all the rest of it sounds like the Beatles.

-Flannery O’Connor
