What Hath Alex Ross Wrought?

Postmodern singer-songwriter extraordinaire Corey Dargel has submitted a photo of his cat next to Music Downtown. The only problem is that his cat looks so much like my Ruby that skeptics are likely to conclude that they are the same cat. But if you compare the markings, you can see that Corey’s cat is more spotted, Ruby more swirled:


Thanks to all those who submitted photos of their cats with Music Downtown, but since some of those animals are clearly not cats, and the books ranged anywhere from Sun-Tzu’s The Art of War to Pat Robertson’s The New Millennium, none of them were within the guidelines. [Note to Glenn Branca: if you think it’s not obvious that that’s you in the cat suit, you’re kidding yourself.] Still, all who entered will receive a complimentary copy of my new book, Uptown Music Sucks.

    seems to me books with a bit of teeth (say Kyle Gann’s Music Downtown) should be using Rottweilers or Pitbulls –or what about a rattlesnake, or better still a crocodile to promote the book rather than all these damn cats…
