The Work Room is active with people trying to find Intersection partners: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1014035.html
and there is a handy spreadsheet that was created to keep track of the partners, and who is still available: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_IrAytsdt66JR_PFMBqI2rxVR4VbWUWqnWip877U7nw/edit#gid=0
There's a song on The Shin's new album, that they played live, that has been really echoing in my head. It's called Midenhall, and it's about that time in his life when he started discovering a love for music.
Well, there's a lot more to the song, but that's the bit that's been getting to me:
"Then a kid in class passed me a tape
An invitation, not the hand of fate"
Having someone introduce you to new music - I know I can remember being in class and having a friend give me a tape of a band I *needed to hear*. I wonder how they do it now- send files? I know a certain teenager watches a lot of Youtube videos, but those don't tend to be bands...)
Anyway, I really like the idea of music being an invitation.
