    Perhaps, North Korea will pick up on it....if they are monitoring my posts.
    The North Korean troops already display the goose step as they parade down the streets with their latest weaponry.

    It's possible to grow tired of ANY particular artist by overexposure. Overfamiliarity denudes art works of novelty and the feeling of discovery.

    I need to control myself from over-listening to those three splendid and transcendent last piano sonatas...

    Same here. I try to ration all of Beethoven's music, so that it doesn't lose its magical effect on me. I need his music to last me for the rest of my life. The only reason why I listen to other composers is to prevent myself from over-indulging in Beethoven. (Just kidding about that being the only reason, but there's a grain of truth in it! )

    There is nothing holy about Beethoven.

    This has worked for me: Ten days of antibiotic, twice a day. Formerly seriously sick of Beethoven. Now on the 11th day, I can listen to three minutes of the Eroica Symphony before I turn it off and listen to Ives' Third Symphony instead. A big improvement!

    The best thing to do is listen to OTHER COMPOSERS MUSIC therefore you can not be bored with one composer.

    When one's grown sick of Beethoven, one is tired of life.
