Jayne’s Build History Pictorial pt.1

This is where we started out back in January 2006.  The fella working with Jon is none other than Andrew Borger,  star drummer from Norah Jones “Feels Like Home Home” and Tom Waits ” Mule Variations” albums.  Andrew and Jon played for years together in the bay area, on drums and bass respectively, and can be heard together on the Preston School of Industry CD “All the Sounds Gas” on Matador Records as well as the Moore Brothers “Colossal Small” and “On and Out”. Andrew and Jon also worked construction together for many years up in the Bay Area. Thanks Andy for banging nails with us.  Perfect start to what would turn into a 9 month build.

    Preston School of Industry? As I’ve met Jon many times when my wife and I come in for dinner, I guess this now means I’m within 2 degrees of separation from one of my favorite bands, Pavement (and 2 degrees from Mr. Waits as well!). I love Jayne’s, but this is just icing on the cake…

  4. Education is undoubtedly a vital field, because everything in the world relies on knowledge. I saw that on a website someplace — a non-profit organization in the Philippines. Teachers strive at their craft (many of them, anyway). But there are several who appear to have a gift to inspire. My senior high school world history teacher was one particular. She had lived in China as a kid. When she taught in Rockville, Maryland, you could potentially feel the wisdom of all her experience. She didn’t have us memorize dates. That was the first truly great thing I had heard from a history tutor. What she said next took the subject several magnitudes higher in value. She wanted us to know the motivations of history — the deeply visceral, human areas of what can otherwise be a deadly dry subject. Jaime Escalante of “Stand and Deliver” fame, dared to dream big. Calculus for the typically dropout crowd? Pushing them to go on to college? Wow. And I have this book called, “Calculus Made Easy,” by Sylvanus P. Thompson, first published in 1910. It’s been through many printings all to make a simple subject simple. What are we able to do to create more teachers who inspire world-changing superiority? Einstein once said that imagination is much more important than knowledge. Knowledge can present you with the foundation. Imagination usually takes you to the stars. Don’t our children ought to get better?
