Re: I Am Sitting In a Room

I played this at a relatively low volume and didn't get the screechy effect that other people noticed. My ears are saved! For me this didn't start out as music, but as soon as the shimmers appeared and the words disappeared, my mind treated it as such. It was all crystalline and gorgeous and stuff.

Re: Instruments you wish you played

Just like Dirk, I wish that I played the cello. I mean, just check out these dueling cellists!

Re: Earliest music memories.

I was born in 1980. I first remember hearing Whitney Houston singing "The Greatest Love of All"; I was in the car with my mother on the way to kindergarten. We ended up singing that song at our kindergarten graduation. Then I sang it at my mother's wedding: I was clinging to her skirt and ...

Re: may someone other than friends someday know about my com

I just ran into this, and I'm totally stunned and impressed with the quality of what you're doing here. I'm totally going to start from the beginning and read everything. *squee!*

Re: Geraldine Doyle, the inspiration for Rosie the Riveter,

Hey, thanks for passing this along. Wartime was an interesting time for feminism and lots of other parts of our culture, and Rosie was a part of that. I never knew that she was based on a real person either; it was kinda fun to see the picture upon which the article was based. She was a lovely woman.

Re: The King's Speech

I watched this movie the same night that I watched The Black Swan; The Black Swan was SO BAD that I needed to watch something good to put my world back into balance. I'd read no reviews and seen no advertisements for The King's Speech, so I had no idea what I was about to watch. It was so lovely, al...

Re: Black Swan

It could be that the movie was more profound than I realized, but I kept thinking that I would have most enjoyed this movie when I was fourteen or so. I mean, Natalie Portman is gorgeous in this, and I love watching her dance and I was, like, TOTALLY into the sensuality of it all, but the story itse...

Re: Composing - a natural ability?

I think that composing happens in two parts: structure and communication. You can do some remarkably beautiful musical writing just by understanding how music theory and composition works, and I think that studying music theory is a great way to start. Just as important, though, is trying to communi...

Re: Found this cake on the innernet... xkcd!

Some cake decorators are hugely talented. That's a far cry from frosted roses and Spongebob.

Re: Gingerbread houses (with pictures!)

Oh wow, that's a really well put-together gingerbread house! I host a Christmas party every year. While I've never personally put together a gingerbread house, I do set out graham crackers, icing, and candies and invite my guests to collaborate and construct a graham-cracker house. They've come up w...

Re: You can save one book from a fire...

I'd save the Oxford English Dictionary; a world without proper spelling is no world for me.
