Whilst walking down Hobart Boulevard on this cool summer's eve, the moon shone in it's full glory, I looked cool with my shades on (even at night
), my feet were clad in comfy flipflops, and I was curiousily perusing my surroundings. Occaisionaly I would pick up any large pieces of trash and deposit them into the proper receptacles. I was enjoying myself, even though these earbuds totally suck at music reproduction, and the Ipod they were plugged into has been dropped, and even before that couldn't touch my Emu 1212m.
Why the smile, then?
Because music comes first. I think we all should keep that in mind. If you are already generally happy with life, you will enjoy whatever music you hear, even if it is from 1$ earbuds.
If you have an undiagnosed/untreated mentally illness, suffering from a broken heart, or just generally unhappy, et al, no amount of God's gift of hearing will make music sing for your soul. You've got to have your own pounding heart and glowing soul before you can truly appreciate the musician's.
I realize this is mentioned on this forum many many times, but thought i'd reiterate it because it's so important.
Just my humble opinions, mods can delete/move/edit if they wish.
