    Ha! Hot darn it's good at the top. Man, if I'd only known, I'd have joined the Wagner clique too.

    But, no. It's too little, too late, isn't it? I'll never be cool, will I?

    I probably ought to start liking rap.

    Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.

    Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with
    those not sufficiently prepared. Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art.

    Since Britten was ahead before Very Senior Member's vote, I'll put him above Rossini.

    Thanks for participating Txitxo. All of these composers have already been permanently placed on the list and cannot be voted for. You may vote for any composer which has not yet reached 400 points.

    He/she/it meant to put Ligeti at ten points and Cage at nine.
