"Music is not illusion, but revelation rather. Its triumphant power lies in the fact that it reveals to us beauties we find nowhere else, and that the apprehension of them is not transitory, but a perpetual reconcilement of life." --Tchaikovsky

"A composer is a guy who goes around forcing his will on unsuspecting air molecules, often with the assistance of unsuspecting musicians." --Frank Zappa

"It's not having been in the dark house, but having left it that counts." --T. Roosevelt

"Don't let the sadness of your past and the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present." --Unknown

"You don't get over it. You get on with it." --Unknown

Facts about me:

Most of my posts are behind a friendslock. Feel free to add me to your friends list if you find me interesting. I will probably reciprocate. If you start finding me boring, offensive, or otherwise unreadable, feel free to take me OFF your friends list. I won't get insulted - after all, it's YOUR list. While it's rare, please don't be offended if I end up taking you off my list.

Disclaimer: If you don't like what I post, if it offends you.. or if it is contrary to your beliefs.. please remove me. I have a very sarcastic, very dry sense of humor, and I will post a lot of things that may seem serious and cranky, but in all reality, most are not serious. It's just how I am, it's just the way my humor system works. Ranting is oftentimes similar. While something might be a legitimate rant, it's most likely not as serious as it seems. Also: I am an oversensitive person. I do tend to have a short fuse in some areas of discussion. If you find one of those subjects, press it, and I ask you to stop, STOP. If you do not stop, you will be removed immediately. I will not tolerate "fuse re-igniters" or "button pushers." I'm sick of the drama it causes, I'm sick of being hurt that way, I'm sick of all of that. Despite all of this, I really am not a bad person. I care very much about my friends, and I am a compassionate person. But I will not tolerate people walking all over me. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, you are more than welcome to bring them up PRIVATELY with me.
