I'm Being Taught at Yale!

As you may have read in yesterday's Page Six, Yale University is currently offering a course in nightlife which features texts by me!

My work has finally gone to college!

Doctoral candidate Madison Moore is teaching "Dance Music and Nightlife Culture in New York City," for those who can afford to be on the list.

The course includes studies of classic nightclubs, trips to New York, and speaking engagements by DJs.

Most importantly, the students will immerse themselves in texts by "venerable scholars of the open bar Michael Musto (whose recent piece 'Why I Hate Nightlife' is a tortured love letter to the scene) and Anthony Haden-Guest."

I'm thrilled that my stuff has been admitted into the hallowed halls of the Ivy League, since that's actually where I started (learning Jane Austen's body of work at Columbia in between frantically running off to gay mixers).

And I hope this launches a trend and leads to entire universities built around the art of studying clubbing.

The Happy Hour School!

House Music University!

Club Kid College!

Downtown U!

I will surely be dean of something at one of these -- or at least I can throw the orientation bash.

Dear Michael, I haven't your unyielding good taste.  I wish I could have gone to Columbia, too, but father wouldn't hear of it.  He needed help behind the notions counter

Oh my God! This is all too reminiscent of "Sex Kittens Go to College" (1960), with Mamie Van Doren, Tuesday Weld, Brigitte's sister Mijanou Bardot, Conway Twitty and Vampira!

Not to mention  "She's Working Her Way Through College" ('to learn a lot of knowledge that she'll probably never ever use," went the title song lyric) starring Virginia Mayo and Ronald Reagan.

And DickDorm, of course.

Oy, didn't I predict that something like this was bound to happen? And in these very same (web) pages. Congratulations to you! (And through you to me as well.) But it shouldn't stop until we reach that plateau called Musto Studies, OK?

Every 18 year old should take out a one hundred thousand dollar loan for this course, and similar courses!

It'll look good on a resume for a that first time job that pays $30 dollars an hour.

This is what colleges should teach kids in today's job market!

I would have gone to college if they had a nightlife course instead of biochemistry and engineering.
