36 Years Ago

36 Years Ago, Vienna 1971—A Student Journal

Day 300: Big music day at Mai Fest

Day 300 — Big music day at Mai Fest
28-May-1972 (Sonntag–Sun.)

Gundula Janowitz
Vienna, the city of music, lives up to its name today—the Vienna Boys’ Choir, Mozart with the Vienna Philharmonic, Böhm conducting and Gundula Janowitz singing Weber’s Der Freischütz are all on the menu. Wow!

This is 300 days of blogging today. Come on Google, you say content is king. Give me a #1 ranking. (I used to be in the top 3 for a short while.) That said, we do use Google as a time machine to travel back to some of today’s concerts.

Day 200: In 36 years, life hasn’t changed

Day 200 — In 36 years, life hasn’t changed
18-February-1972 (Freitag–Fri.)

Life hasn’t changed in over 36 years. I was amazingly prophetic in 1972. I take you on a tour of my prophecies regarding my back, stomach, ego, brain, work, stress, eating chocolate, and girlfriends. It’s as if I stepped through a time-space continuum portal (with some warping) from 1972 to 2009.
