 From Salinger, A New Dash Of Mystery
Seymour, of course, was the oldest of the Glass children, who in the 1948 short story ''A Perfect Day for Ba nanafish'' (collected in ''Nine Stories'') put a gun to his head and blew his brains out.

 Keeping the Faith: Drink Deep
Seymour's fingers were as smooth and straight as his mother's had been, although not nearly as small.
Seymour drew his fingers around the goblet of his glass and momentarily imagined the wine burning through the metal of the glass and eating away his imperfect fingers to the bone.
Seymour did not see within his father's eyes a look of dawning recognition, or a sudden burst of realization, but rather the dim of acceptance long settled.

 Hapworth 16, 1924 - by Dan Geddes
Lest we doubt that seven-year-olds typically write 20,000 word letters, we quickly recall that this is the same Seymour Glass who entered college at 16, earned his Ph.D. at 21, and put a bullet through his brain at 31.
Moreover, since this is young Seymour's letter, all errors of judgment, taste, or grammar can be attributed to Seymour, who admits to be writing at a "swift, terrible rate of speed," rather than to Salinger.
Seymour wants his librarian to send him a staggering catalog of literature, his running commentary of the works providing most of the unintentional humor, and perhaps 25% of the entire content, of the story.

 The New York Review of Books: Justice to J.D. Salinger
At the time, readers had no inkling that Seymour Glass —as the young man was called— would become a famous literary character, and that this was anything but a self-contained story about a suicidal depressive and his staggeringly shallow and unhelpful wife, Muriel.
The Glass family apartment is at once a faithfully, almost tenderly, rendered, cluttered, shabby, middle-class New York apartment and a kind of lair, a mountain fastness, to which Salinger's strange creations retreat, to be with their own kind.
The frank pleasure Bessie Glass takes in the sight of her son's body is represented as the breaching of a boundary, as "something perverty" (in Holden's term).

 Books of The Times
Buddy Glass is its author also, but this time he is recording a monologue in which he thinks about Seymour, talks about Seymour and almost nominates Seymour for beautification.
We learn from this turgid and static discourse something about Seymour's eccentric approach to games and clothes as a boy, something about his career as an infant prodigy (he was a college professor at nineteen), something about his love for Chinese and Japanese poetry and a good deal about his proficiency as a poet.
Seymour had mastered the art of writing Japanese haikus (three line seventeen-syllable poems), only he doubled their length.

 Seymour Glass (Official Thread) - Shakefire.com
With acclaimed producer Howie Beno (Ministry, Red Hot Chili Peppers) behind the boards, Seymour Glass delivers the melodies to rock the radio dial and the poetic words to stir the soul, but it's the band's innovative marriage of grit and grace that smashes open the doors of inspiration.
Setting Seymour Glass apart from other bands in their genre, whichever that is, may be the prominence of piano in their bittersweet mix, making even their most tragic moments soar.”
Fortunately for NYC’s Seymour Glass, they do not fall into that category…Combining elements of the Deftones and Muse, which could be a recipe for disaster, Seymour Glass uses great hooks and spiraling piano arpeggios to create their own unique and polished sound.

 The Music Box: Seymour Glass - Note to Self (Album Review)
By appearance, name, and, for that matter, any conceivable aspect other than actual recorded music, one would peg Seymour Glass as a cookie-cutter emo band.
For starters, Seymour Glass — which takes its name from a character created by author J.D. Salinger — is willing to take risks by employing song structures that are far from predictable, and lead singer Artie Kitchen successfully avoids the annoying qualities that plague his peers’ less-than-soothing endeavors.
In addition, Steve Pepe crafts guitar accompaniments that are catchy without feeling trite, and the incorporation of acoustic piano into several of the arrangements resurrects an art that has been lost in the current age of all-too-generic pop-rock.

Yet another reason to be glad that the poster ban was overturned [bb] a few years ago: flyers showing up around town in which people work out their literary frustrations.
I really really hope that these are the work of someone who just can't get over the death of the eldest Glass sibling and wants to talk to other people about it (J. Salinger and/or afficionados should direct their e-mail whyseymour@gmail.com) rather than some sort of viral marketing for a hardcore band from New York.
This makes me happy, and I am choosing to believe that it was indeed made by someone who is still upset by the way things happened for the Glass family.
