You’re a musical guy. Why are you so upset at the world?

I know life has been tough…..but can you mitigate the toughness, at times, with beautiful music?

Brian Wilson & Thucydides. antithesis. war and peace. interesting.

91 is great record. I hope i can match it.

Music is a great resource. And strikes to the core of what is Human.

My wife and I saw that movie in the theater. That scene got the whole theater laughing out loud.
