    I will be celebrating Mozart's birthday by listening to nothing but Mozart all day today. Starting with Die Zauberflöte.

    But perhaps I won't listen to the requiem as it isn't exactly the right day to do that...
    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.

    ^Oh great. Another one I missed. Happy birthday for yesterday Chopin. You couldn't orchestrate if your life depended on it but you wrote some damn good solo piano music!
