My friend said the same thing about Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka, was a Pirates fan but didn’t see this.

I’m creeped out by the outcome and effect in Hollywood. I’m impressed with its impact on the world in 2005.

I was mostly drawn in by Johnny Depp’s acting, pretty much, and interesting co-acting response. It was quite drawn in by its quality and quantity. All that experience in acting built up. He lived the dream, and now that dream is gone, Hollywood, France, but I wouldn’t wanna be him and get tattoos and practice maybe substance abuse.

Johnny Depp does seem to believe in older people and normal people who are popular. He doesn’t think he’s better than everyone else and like no one deserves anything. I wonder how long that will last.

In real life.

So, like you must know by now, I did piano. My college had an afterschool program for children who played piano like 4 or 5 days a week. My private instructor actually taught it, and piano was my major instrument, along with doing other things like taking private organ lessons.

I feel it’s become accepted that I’ve transitioned as a lost soul or something or other from piano to violin, as violin is considered more specific musically and more collaborative, in the making.

My piano instructor in college taught me more about perfecting simple technic/technique and things like how a line in piano is the same as an instrument in the orchestra or band playing the same song. Basically.

My organ teacher in high school sure beat around the bush for that choir all those years and is there doing it to this day, retired from teaching Talented Music in public schools in the area. Anyway, she taught me how to perfect my legato on organ or rather to eliminate it and be more detached. I did my pedal exercises faithfully, and I was all good and well, “up to snuff,” as I like to say. She hinted me in on things and I was a whiz to pick it up. I got good at trills by the time I came back from college a year.

I wanted to take Music Appreciation in college when I was still in high school but only could take Art Appreciation. My dad kept boasting about Beethoven’s 5th, “dun dun dun dun” having taken Music Appreciation. I took music history courses etc. myself as a music major and did speeches on it. I also did some learning of Music Education and even got to use it as one of my majors in music for awhile.

It’s very true that highly accomplished musicians, singers, and whatnot enjoy feedback from people who don’t play.

What highly accomplished musicians, singers, and whatnot don’t enjoy is people who want to break into the field chasing after or clinging to them. It’s a mystery, and it’s history.

When a music professor told me to go away, I didn’t and felt confused being rejected in college, and she said I was worthless. It makes me suspicious because I was just kicked out of singing, Vocal and Instrumental Music Education, and piano as a major instrument. That means they were up to no good. The Music Education teacher said I was “sneaky,” like it was a coveted program in which I was unwelcome. I don’t know for sure if they knew I loved my programs and the school. They said I was welcome to try another post secondary school, like another one in the same city. However, their program was “cuter.” No one seemed to talk about it or have to think about it much at my level. My roommate pitched in that it was mean if [after I was accepted] for a year that their turning me down was wrong. She was an Education major, and they closed the Education program, when we were even encouraged, my class year in general, to minor in Secondary Education. I think what would be appealing would be to get a Bachelor’s in directing for film. I know sometimes they have big people in the business cater to children in the field, as well. In fact, I decided the other day I should move to L.A. It would be a dream to move there when I was in New Orleans. I came home to Orlando, where we moved after Hurricane Katrina destroyed our house and New Orleans. I thought Disney filmed there, but they didn’t film things like Pirates of the Caribbean there!

I think music as a skill or connection is an experience of transcendence to other forms of reality.

Professionally? For something like violin or whatever you really need to have started probably no later than 7 or 8 years old.

People want to know “what’s good.”

No one’s too old to play music as a hobby.

Why hobble along, like a life dragging chains?

It’s literally a battle between good and evil, good being Early Baby Boomers and their “faithful subjects” and bad being Late Baby Boomers and their rebellious “minions” who won’t comply with older generations like Early Baby Boomers included.
