    Exceedingly minor point – Pete did not write "Little Boxes".

    Irrelevant interruption: The Hartnell paperback from the Kickstarter campaign just arrived. While I continue to read through the epub and mobi versions from Smashwords, this is a handsome publication indeed. Good show. Should be proud etc etc. Cheers.

    Malvina Reynolds wrote "Little Boxes".

    Pete Seeger was Malvina Reynolds in an alternate universe. So what Phil said was right … from a certain point of view.

    nah, Seeger never would have written a song as smug and condescending as "Little Boxes" in any universe

    "Little Boxes" may be less smug and condescending in other universes.

    Is ticky-tacky a viable building material in other universes?

    Pete Seeger is fantastic. One of my most patriotic moments was at 7 AM the morning of Barack Obama's inauguration, waiting on the Mall, watching the recording of Pete Seeger from the night before singing This Land is Your Land. Woody Guthrie may have written it, but Pete Seeger could sing the heck out of that song.

    I actually interviewed for an outdoor educator job on the Clearwater. It sounded really cool, but I wasn't that sad about not getting it because that boat is really tiny for the amount of time you spend on it.

    Pete Seeger had quite a remarkable late career, remarkable because he too all intent and purposes blew it by trying to get Bob Dylan unplugged at the 1965 Newport Festival. In essence he tried to switch off rock the day it was born.

    But of course Dylan worshipped Seeger and wouldn't have been up there if it wasn't for him.

    RIP comrade.

    According to Billy Bragg, Seeger had nothing against electric, and applauded an electric set by Muddy Waters at the same festival. He wanted Dylan to unplug because feedback from the amps meant the audience couldn't make out the lyrics. And if you can't hear what a protest song is saying, what's the point?

    With our Education Secretary's ill-informed blathering about the First World War, "What Did You Learn In School?" is particularly poignant right now.
