Thrilling Kansas victory bodes well for teen music and art initiative


With Kansas trailing Purdue early in the second half, and the dog curiously obsessed with the taste of her own front paws, our neighbor Marjorie Ford, wearing a furry cap she bought recently in Budapest came by to ask us what more we know about Jade Chamness and her Break Through the Static group that helps teens impacted by suicide.

Marjorie Ford against the wind

Preliminarily Marjorie talked to her daughter Maya Ford of the famous The Donnas and reported back that Maya too wants to help.

Meanwhile, after scanning electronically thru “Plastic Alto” to reveal Marjorie’s other appearances here, we surfed — not unlike the world class waves of Mentawai — from the Donnas to Green Day (did you know that Tre Cool pounded the toms with Torry C?) to Bratmobile to Molly Newman at cooking school to is Lookout still a label to is Larry Livermore still alive (YES! I was thinking sadly enough — and we started with suicide — about cancer victim and Maximum RocknRoll founder Tim Yohannon — Gilman Street, Lookout, Maximum RocknRoll — what’s the difference?) — to finally landing — not unlike Dorothy in a whirlwind — as Kansas closes to within six at 47-41 12:162Q — on a Malay punk band called Carburetor Dung from Kuala Lumpur.

There is more to the world than in your philosophy, Horatio.
Or, what’s the frequency Kenneth?
Or, as Tracy Chapman says, pride cometh before the fall.

edit to add, three minutes, basketball time, later: 49-44 Purdue at 9:44

edit to add, 9:40 or so basketball time, later: Kansas steals and dunks to go up 63-60 with 2.5 seconds left and commentator says “he should have dribble around run out the clock”. Kansas victory bodes well for teen music and art initiative in that one of the community leaders backing Break Thru the Static is Becky Bechman who is the grand-daughter of the famous 39-season Jayhawk coach Phog Allen, who I just learned also coached at the Indian academy in Lawrence, Haskell.
