Quentin's Weeknotes 3/30/19-4/5/19

This week:

  • I read this great interview with Chris Cerf and Norm Stiles, who crafted some iconic songs on Sesame Street in the 1970s and 80s. These guys are clearly close friends and had a great time making kids music for adults and adult music for kids.  "Put down the duckie" is perhaps their most famous for its celebrity-filled video, but I'm fond, as they are, of "Dance Ourselves to Sleep", which, as you'll see below, is really funny and strange.
  • I've been listening to the music of Billy Eilish, who is making dark, surreal, genre-defying pop. Her videos are as bizarre and stylized as her music, and "Bury a Friend" is the creepy, monster-under-the-bed love story I didn't know I needed in my life.
