This is a blog not really about anything in particular and reservedly can be about anything. That said, being a musician, it does heavily feature music, art, aesthetic rants and inaccurate assumption-based mathematics being used to explain intangible things in the world.
In terms of rants, my arguments are are usually designed to counter the equally disdainful and yet strikingly un-passionate mediocrity and stagnation that pervades much classical AND contemporary classical music: fields I inhabit but fundamentally detest, like a cow in an electric enclosure.
Also, if you like sharks and believe they are friendly, peace-loving creatures go and try swimming with a hungry specimen. I won’t by any means condone mindless killing of these mindless killing machines, but will not, repeat, not go into water they inhabit under any circumstances, nor have the slightest sympathy for anyone attacked by a shark (of their own free will … boat accident victims and professional ocean-workers are exempt). Sharks are unlike other dangerous critters such as lions, pumas and bears – which we encounter naturally in our day-to-day lives – and thus we have only ourselves to blame for encountering them…
Otherwise, I hope you enjoy these musings.
