So it’s beginning to look a lot like…Easter! The sky was so blue today it looked like “Happy Little Trees” Bob Ross spilled some cerulean all over it. We have just a few blissful, fleeting days to enjoy it before the summer descends, so tool around the metroplex this weekend and make this town your b*!ch.

There are famous rivalries and jealousies in world of art, da Vinci and Michelangelo, Gaugin and Van Gogh that cost him his ear; Pollock and de Kooning’s was more about a war of the critics that championed them; and now the battle of the graffiti artists Banksy and King Robbo that deface each other’s art. About Brahms and Tchaikovsky, perhaps their misunderstanding of each other’s aesthetic is like the arguments between Ingres and Delacroix, about classicism versus unbridled Romanticism.
Though the men shared the same birthdate, May 7th, besides a love of drink, they shared not a regard for each other’s music. Brahms once infamously fell asleep during a rehearsal of the younger composer’s 5th Symphony, and the aristocratically elegant Tchaikovsky was scabrous in his expression of disdain to Brahms.
