String Voice Dilemma? Viola? Cello? Help

My cello and I have been spending the last few months together.

I don’t think its the voice I want…

I still try to play it like a lead guitar.

I run out of neck space to get the voice I need.

(Why didn’t you start on a viola first?)

I wanted something with a scale length comparable to a guitar. Plus the viola would have this “chin rest foundation” issue with my make-up.

My dilemma?
Which is more important: having the voice or having no make-up smeared?

Drawbacks of the cello I have learned:

  1. Hurts my hands after fretting chords
  2. I have the habit of looking at the fingerboard
  3. Playing on the body part of the fingerboard to get the sound
  4. I am immobile when playing in public and people can harass a girl like me
  5. Voicing and parts too similar to bass guitar-which I left because it doesn’t express me

So at least I bought a cheap one. Violas are comparably less expensive than a cello.

~Sigh~

Life would be easier without music in ones heart, but would it be a life?

The same could be said of food/eating/meals.

This is the last straw, Amphitryon!

The answer, undoubtedly, is yes.

I have had this argument with my boyfriend a few times, and he just can’t come to accept it. It’s not fair, he said, to compare the music industry as we know it today to the music of the past, because we see all the bad music around us today whereas bad music of past decades has faded out of history and we don’t even know about it today.

This is a good point. However, if you take a cross section of the most popular songs of each decade, you can see from the top five hits of each year how the trend is really going. Take this list for example. It begins in 1946. We have jazz standards, some silly pop songs. Then we move to The Beatles, who, let’s be honest, were some of the finest pop music of the century.

Carlinisms for Decistion 2012

“Have you noticed that most of the women who are against abortion are women you wouldn’t want to fuck in the first place, man? There’s such balance in nature.”
George Carlin (1937-2008)

“Have you noticed that political candidates who are against abortion are men you wouldn’t want to fuck in the first place?”
-paraphrased observation by Lexikat

“Why, why, why, why is it that most of the people who are against abortion are people you wouldn’t wanna fuck in the first place? Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked. Conservatives don’t give a shit about you until you reach ‘military age’. Then they think you are just fine. Just what they’ve been looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers. Pro-life… pro-life… These people aren’t pro-life, they’re killing doctors! What kind of pro-life is that? What, they’ll do anything they can to save a fetus but if it grows up to be a doctor they just might have to kill it? They’re not pro-life. You know what they are? They’re anti-woman. Simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don’t like them. They don’t like women. They believe a woman’s primary role is to function as a brood mare for the state. Pro-life… You don’t see many of these white anti-abortion women volunteering to have any black fetuses transplanted into their uteruses, do you? No, you don’t see them adopting a whole lot of crack babies, do you? No, that might be something Christ would do. And you won’t see a lot of these pro-life people dousing themselves in kerosene and lighting themselves on fire. You know, morally committed religious people in South Vietnam knew how to stage a god-damned demonstration, didn’t they? They knew how to put on a fuckin’ protest. Light yourself on fire! Come on, you moral crusaders, let’s see a little smoke to match that fire in your belly.” – George Carlin 1996

“Catholics and other Christians are against abortions and they’re against homosexuals. Well who has less abortions than homosexuals? Leave these fucking people along for Christ’s sake. Here is an entire class of people guaranteed never to have an abortion and the Catholics and the Christians are just tossing them aside. You’d think they’d make natural allies. Go look for consistency in religion.” – George Carlin 1996

The Politics of Uteri

(or is Politica Del Carciofo a better title?)

Why do the most sexually unappealing and unattractive men want to control women’s uteri (uteruses-whatever)?

Did some really sexy girl turn them down as a teenager?

Rejection hurts that much? </3

She didn’t want to have sex with you, regardless of your money and inherited wealth?

(If you just had found a girl you could pay for sex with your money instead of impressing with your money…)

So you went to college.

Mom and Dad put you through the institution where “money was not an issue.”

(Pick any Ivy League school)

Look at you now!

You are all slicked out-still smelling of money, but with a new twist: You took your schooling to gain a position of influence on LAWS that would effect that leggy blonde girl who turned you and your money down so many painful years ago…since money cannot impress this harlot, then gaining legislative control of her body will be your plan for retribution!

(Again, couldn’t you just PAY for sex rather than Impress for sex??)

“If she won’t be impressed by my boyish charms (translation: rude and hence butt-ugly teenager), my inheritance of wealth (money by birth), then I will impose martial law on her vagina, making sure that if I cannot have fun with it, no one else in this nation will either-INCLUDING lesbians. Muhahahaahaha!”

Really?

You are so insecure about your penis-With the money to back it up, that you’d take this approach?

By taking this approach, you really have validated the leggy blonde girl of rejection. She knew that even with your non-impressive wealth, you had no personality, no kind attributes, no philanthropic tendencies that were worthy of giving you the time of day.

No amount of political skill, or Biblical text manipulation will ever remove the blinding fact that you are,

in fact,

an asshole/bigot/evil/bully/loser.

“Tutto é possibile per la bellissima cigna” in reference to Hans Christian Andersen

Il Bruto Anatraccolo was the first book I read in italiano. My pronunciation was bad, I only understood every other word. BUT…
When I finished reading, I was crying and smiling.

So it is safe to say that I clearly understood what I was reading. 

Il Bruto Anatraccolo Translates to “The Ugly Duckling.” My quote basically translates to “anything/everything is possible for a beautiful swan.”
