Sticky toot

I have learned that I’m not always notified about receiving follow requests on mobile due to the app I’m using, but requests will show up as soon as I log in at an actual computer. So if you request to follow me and I don’t get to it immediately, it’s nothing personal! I just haven’t seen it yet, is all

Sticky toot

It’s come to my attention that some of you might think I’m exaggerating with this toot here. So, I present to you Exhibit A, taken from the cubicle wall next to my desk

"Why is it called 'Sleeper,' by the way?"
I had made time during midterms to get some practicing done, but my body, exhausted as ever, had other ideas. About ten minutes in, I literally started to fall asleep while playing
When I came to, I was picking out the main pattern that starts the song. Immediately I woke all the way up and wrote the whole song that night. One of those lucky, lucky moments where everything falls into place and all that's left to do is write the damn thing

Found one of my old instrumentals that I wrote back in college - still proud of it, too. I should really get around to recording a full performance of it one of these days
Here, enjoy "Sleeper" if you've got four minutes to spare: soundcloud.com/pianosmasher/sl

It is extremely liberating to not pretend that you know things you don't. It also opens you up to a lot more chances to learn shit. It rules

Tastes can change and grow with time, or they can stay static and rot. Sometimes it's a bit of both. Who we are changes what we need out of art
Isn't it weird to gatekeep something like that?

Taste is like talent
If you have it, you probably can't explain too much about how you got it/how it works outside of the abstract, and it won't take you far enough without developing it further
If you don't have it, there's no way to acquire it (you can't force yourself to like something, only lie about liking it), so it doesn't make sense to worry about not having it too much. And there are ways to develop something like it from scratch anyway, so why not put your energy toward that instead?

Might fuck around and listen to that 10 hour Brodyquest video while I work today

This day's gonna be a slow one
I just gotta remember how to take my time

Good morning! I know it's been a while, but in case you've forgotten: I am still grateful for trail mix

An unexpected benefit to this whole month, btw, is that I can sing along so much easier than when I'm just listening to a bunch of tenor voices and trying to jump up and reach something in their range
Dropping the octave and singing soprano/alto lines in the bass-ment puts so much less strain on my voice in comparison

My favorite answer to the Trolley Problem question is actually the entire runtime of Liam Neeson's The Commuter

Fever Ray's self-titled didn't grab me when I first gave it a chance on release in 2009, but having a Knife phase and wider tastes these days has helped it grow on me with each relisten this month. It's neat!

Everyone with a marble bust avi who complains about defending "Western European culture" has never listened to classical music that isn't on a Baby Einstein CD

Casually imagining a creature slithering around in my room, bored as fuck + waiting for me to get home
