"Play the Golden Gate Bridge," [blog/article]
SFGate Wrote:"Play the Golden Gate Bridge"

Up close, the Golden Gate Bridge is not the graceful beauty it seems from a distance. It is noisy. It hums with traffic and bellows sometimes with the sounds of foghorns.
At other times, the wind whistles through its cables, and in the background is a constant sound of the cries of seabirds, not to mention the Pacific Ocean.
Musicians look at the bridge differently. Mickey Hart, the former Grateful Dead drummer, sees the Golden Gate Bridge as a "giant wind harp." He plans to be at Crissy Field on...the bridge's 75th birthday, to perform an original composition.

with a rubber mallet earlier this month.

I'm surprised he didn't get surrounded and shot from multiple angles by drone black helicopters for being a tururist.

Um, what are you two caterpillars doing goofing off when you should be applying for law school? Bruce Sloane is not gonna be happy. For shame.

He's noble enough to know what's right
But weak enough not to choose it
He's wise enough to win the world
But fool enough to lose it
He's a New World man - Rush
