the statues are permanent and the people are impermanent
but which are more real?

New York-based sandcastle artist Calvin Seibert (previously featured here) recently traveled to Hawaii where he created more of his awesome abstract, geometric sandcastles. They’re an impressive and tantalizing distraction for those of us still surrounded by wintry weather.
Click here to view more of Calvin Siebert’s recent sand sculptures.
on the one hand, sandcastles are the ultimate symbol of impermanence
on the other hand, these photos were taken in february and will likely be passed around the internet for years and printed photographs are, in a way, a permanent physical record.

Michael Jackson - Beat It (Demo) (The Ultimate Fan Extras Collection)
Demo of Beat It composed using only Michael Jackson’s voice
As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”
mj is a great subject for the debate about whether we can/should separate our opinion of someone from our opinion of their body of work
because, say what you will about his behavior and possible mental state, he is one of the greatest pop singers in american history, just from the perspective of the control and range and precision of his voice. as an instrument, it is so impressive. please give this a listen.
