Foreplay is important. And don’t let anyone ever convince you of otherwise. Sometimes you have to walk before you can sprint, as they say. It’s more fun to slow things down and get into it before really getting into it.

It is so easy for us, as musicians, to accept our faults but not to praise our achievements. 

Confession Fifty-two

Whenever I go to a symphony or concert of any kind all I can do is stare at the bassist. 
First violinists: "OMG what do you mean we have to rest for FIVE MEASURES???"
Second violinists: "Hey why do we never get the melody? Come on, man."
Violists: *Shitty, out of tune notes*
Cellists: "Haha we kick ur asses violinists ur such divas"
Bassists: *Too stoned/otherwise apathetic to care about playing the same two notes the entire piece*

Charming visualization from this altogether delightful children’s book about space – an imaginative and illuminating primer on the cosmos to spark awe in the souls of budding Sagans. 

When I got to Neptune I asked myself, “Then what’s Pluto?” and then I got sad and realized how old I am.

Shostakovich composing the 7th Symphony (1941)

About the 7th Symhphony, “Leningrad”, actress Galina Serebrjakova writes:
"Hell and Heaven, crime and innocence, the voice of reason and that of insanity, light and darkness: Shostakovich reflected all of this in his brilliant Symphony. It is longer than any possible motif, it is an immortal narration of the whole humanity, as is Dante’s poem."

I feel so proud when friends tell me their parents like me. Like damn right they do, I am a delight.
