“I’m never getting on my knees for you again.” (-@lukebrandonx , feel free to ignore)

Milton raised his brows in surprise, the refusal and rebellion amusing him. He did like a challenge once in a while, but he knew as well that he always won.

“And why, I wonder, do you think this is up to you to decide?”

It’s New Music Tuesday!

Today’s score is Milton Babbitt’s Composition for Four Instruments, which was composed in 1948.

This score was in the Center for New Music’s papers, but it’s possible that the worked was never performed by the Center in concert. Looking at the score, rhythmic accuracy would be challenging. 

Grove Online states that in this work and Babbitt’s Composition for Twelve Instruments, “The presentation of the rhythmic sets is often complex.”

I think the instrumentalists who used this score would agree with that assessment.

So, this probably means absolutely nothing but it's something I missed before. In S3, in the Prey episode Allen and Tyreese are talking about the beef between Woodbury and the Prison among other things. Allen says to Tyreese that the guys in Woodbury are on edge because they've been attacked by a crazy ass cowboy and some chick with a sword. Have they truly been laying bread crumbs all along and I just never noticed or is my shipper heart in overdrive rn?

Anon, we have heard time and again that there are no coincidences on this show. Nearly everything means something. I went back and looked at some scenes from this episode (thank you Netflix app) and there were several things that stood out to me now (though they didn’t at the time) that became important later. Andrea and Milton both witnessed the Governor setting up the room where they would later die because of him. Milton even prevented Andrea from taking the Governor out in the chair she would later be handcuffed to and sealed both his and Andrea’s fate. The scene where Andrea escapes Woodbury was interesting because it started off with Sasha teasing and sort of instructing Tyreese about his sharpshooting skills (or lack thereof). There was the implication that Sasha was pretty proficient at that point and had been doing most of the work taking out walkers. Then Andrea came up and tried to trick Sasha and Tyreese into leaving their post so she could leave the town. Andrea mentioned that their help was needed to take down some walkers elsewhere. Sasha questioned why Andrea wasn’t helping since “[Andrea] [was] supposed to be a good shot.” Perhaps that was an early and surreptitious nod to Sasha later taking over comic Andrea’s sniper role on the show. Also, when Martinez took Tyreese, Sasha, Ben, Allen, and Shumpert to the walker pits he didn’t know that he was going to get a glimpse at where he going to later to die at the Governor’s hand. I don’t think it was the same walker pit. But it was a walker pit nonetheless. Martinez even got a preview as to how it was going to happen when Tyreese held Allen over the pit of walkers. It’s funny to think that Martinez was so flip about feeding the folks at the prison (whom he termed “rats”) to the walkers when he ended up becoming a rat himself. That’s pretty ironic or maybe it’s a coincidence. I’m not sure anymore thanks to Alanis Morrisette. 

So, Anon, I think Allen mentioning just Rick and Michonne was very intentional on the part of the show. Remember Rick and Michonne weren’t the only ones who attacked Woodbury that night. There was also the quite tall Oscar and a certain grimy fellow who, like Michonne, also had a very distinctive and recognizable weapon. Not to mention that same fellow also had to fight his Governor foot solider brother in the Woodbury Walker Thunderdome. Alas, he was not mentioned by whoever told Allen the tale of the attack. That wasn’t happenstance. I’ve said before that once Richonne goes canon we will all be able to look back and see all those “little moments” that signaled the bigger ones (and the biggest one) to come.
