All the cool kids are pretentious people born out of wedlock.

The pursuit of classical musical training is invariably linked to the absence of a stable father figure.

Maybe that explains why I'm exploring jazz and world music (and other genres) then. I'm not meant to be a classical musician.

I'm totally joking, by the way.

You're not quite there yet. Maybe if you listened to less hip hop?

I'm particularly fond of jazz. Classical musicians are bloodless and boring. But I'm sure their mothers are very fond of them.

Merry Cat is correct. In her first post, that is.

I dated a classical musician once.

That said, I do love jazz. Did I mention that I just went to see Dave Brubeck in concert last Monday?

That dude is so into his weird theory, I don't think he'd get anything.

He's a charmer. I'd love for him to experience some Dickensian haunting in which he'd discover how different his life might have been, had he actually repeated a variety of experiences. But I guess if you're determined to be an intellectual Scrooge, your brain gets used to the deprivation of oxygen.

Maybe "intellectual" is too strong a word to apply to poor Pavel.

Hey, Scott/Sage is logged on. Where have you been all my life? Well, these last months anyway.

I think he's just an arrogant kid with a high IQ for his age who still hasn't figured out how to properly interact with human beings.

In other news, I want to tell all those whiners in the Zack & Wiki thread that maybe, just maybe, the reason there won't be a sequel is because it wasn't all that great of a game. ARRGH!

LOL! Trust you to notice, Jelena!
I've been working a lot and growing hair, basically. In April I cut off 11 inches of hair and sent it off to Locks of Love (after removing all the white hairs from the black ones, of course), so I guess by now there's a bald kid somewhere who's sporting a brand new, very bushy black wig. I suspect that kid now has a sudden and inexplicable urge to play obscure and outdated first-person adventure games every time he or she puts the wig on.
