Did you hear the song when you read the title??
We had dinner with friends recently. The topic of Krispy Kreme donuts came up. At least one person wasn’t familiar with them but observed that those who were, entered into a semi-hypnotic state when just discussing the light and fluffy donuts when they are hot from their creation. One person likened the fictional account in Amadeus of Antonio Salieri‘s lust for the gift the God had granted Mozart to the euphoria of a single Krispy Kreme glazed donut. Just replace words about the music with words about the donut:
And music, finished as no music is ever finished. Displace one note and there would be diminishment. Displace one phrase and the structure would fall. … On the page it looked nothing. The beginning simple, almost comic. Just a pulse – bassoons and basset horns – like a rusty squeezebox. Then suddenly – high above it – an oboe, a single note, hanging there unwavering, till a clarinet took over and sweetened it into a phrase of such delight! This was no composition by a performing monkey! This was a music I’d never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing, it had me trembling. It seemed to me that I was hearing the very voice of God.”
Our host even knew of Krispy Kreme’s iPhone App. You can receive a text message when a Hot Light comes on near you! Need driving directions? No problem! Need a fix really bad? You can set the HDDIs: Hot Light Detection Intervals!
