What the...?

Hi everyone! I owe an apology to (almost) everyone who had a link on this here blog. I accidentally deleted all of the links when I went to redesign it. How do you like the new design, by the way? Anyway, if you had a link on my blog, and don't see it to your right, please post a comment with your web address, and I'll get it up there right away.

Music music music. I've been a fiend. Today, after doing everything I could on the job search, I tried to do what Bach did. I copied some piano music by Robert Schumann. Holy crap. I think it's the most boring thing I've ever done. I mean, I got two measures and my eyes started glazing over, my mind started to wander. I can't believe J.S. Bach spent his time copying other people's works.I simply don't believe it. Did you know that dude had 10 kids? Maybe more, even. No way he could have had 10 kids and still had time to copy out measure after measure of other people's music. If it'd been me, I'd've stuck my quill pen in my eye. It's simply impossible. But, maybe life was a bit slower back then, in the German countryside. You never know. Anyway, I'm going to try some more and then quit. Maybe it's like working out, you do some, it aches for ages, then you get used to it and you feel stronger. What do you think?

So, I'm almost finished with a piece called The Sailor's Cat. I've gotten to the double bar line at the end, but now I've got to listen for clunky notes, and probably rewrite the bass line. More on that later. For now, I've got to head out. More later!
