Somewhere near the top of the list of "Things I Want To Be Able To Do With My Body" you would find
"Make music" or "Play the Guitar/Sax/Piano/" or "Sing" or even "Dance". Someday, maybe, it will
I was introduced to the piano at an early age, but I rebelled at the structure of the lessons.
I didn't want to practice, I wanted to make music Now, not after I had mastered my
unmusical lessons. Practice was boring, and I could
always come up with alternate ways of having fun.
I like 50's Rock and Roll, Piano Concertos, Latin Guitar, Jazz Sax... they're my favorites, but
I can even get into some Country, almost anything can get my interest with the exception of Rap.
When it comes to vocals, I prefer that they be in French or Italian or Spanish or Portuguese...
any language that I don't understand, but I prefer the Romantic languages.
English lyrics get me thinking thoughts related to the lyrics, and I wind up calling
an ex- or (future-ex) girlfriend instead of whatever it was that I was doing when those lyrics
kicked off a hormone release...

Some day I'll learn to make music, to play the piano or the sax, or a guitar.
Until then, I listen. Here's what's on the entertainment system at home.
I also have all my CDs loaded
on to my PC, using iTunes. I like how it organizes everything and gives me so many options
for ways to hear music.
If you play music on your PC while working, you'll like the
Microsoft Internet Keyboard because it has extra buttons for media controls (+/- volume, mute, previous/next play/pause/stop, etc)
so you don't have to mouse around. It also has some other slick features.
Remember when people used to get their music on CDs?
Wasn't that quaint?
