CLASSICAL PIANO/REPERTOIRE: Recordings
THOUGHTS OF A CLASSICAL PIANIST: My Classical Piano Blog
Saturday, March 17, 2018
I'm looking forward to some new projects that John Cho is going to be involved in, for awhile I was curious as to whether there were any recent updates. Among them is "Searching", a film I heard was another must-see. After his performance in "Columbus" (an artistic, dramatic film to say the least), it should be interesting.
We all go through the motions, some worse than others. We realize that we have much more in common than we think. My flaw is I tend to keep in any annoyances, anger or what is bothering and not really share them. Otherwise, how can I express them reasonably without exploding. Fortunately, the piano is an outlet that I can transform negative energy into a positive one. Music definitely has therapeutic properties, and that's the power of it. I've learned to channel that more reasonably and calmly. I suppose they call that euphoria heh.
I finally tried Budae Jigae. As far as caloric intake is concerned, I better not have it again for awhile although it was damn tasty.
Revelation of the Century: When I fart, I just let it rip. Muhahaha.

I do wonder at times whether there is any hope at all for permanent change. Change begins within ourselves and being determined or motivated to bring about change. When we fall back on our bad habits and the same, old mistakes, it just makes you wonder if there is ever possibility at all for change. I believe in the words 'Never Give Up' or 'Never Done', but I am certainly not really living it. If I truly believed in that, there should be conspicuous progress. Unfortunately, it's usually the 'Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back' kind of deal. That is pretty much certain for society in general anyway.
Sunnier and warmer days ahead. Looking forward to a new hiking season.
I wonder how many knew Stephen Hawking from Homer Simpson's quip "That WheelChair Guy".... muhaha. On a serious note, RIP.

I've always believed that a person should pursue or be involved in whatever makes the person happy. Be a think-for-yourself type person, not a follower or a drone. If it means playing video games or Pokemon cards for a living, why not heh. In order for us to take that next step in changing or improving, we have to confront our phobias or anxieties. It doesn't imply that you have to do risky or extreme things. On the contrary, just doing or accomplishing a task or an activity is enough. It does seem like a never-ending cycle of being stuck in a rut, but eventually we have to break out of it.
I might have to check out "I'm Sorry To Bother You" as well. Right, who needs the aggravations and interruptions of wrong number calls and telemarketers heh. I certainly do not.

"Hi, Kathy Mitchell here... for 'Dump' Flex Tape. It's flippin' fantastic!....". Three infomercials in one muhaha.
It's the WoW Arena Cup weekend, such is life heh.

After a few more Etude recordings / uploads (Op 10 No. 3 and / or Op 25 No. 2 - depends), I might return to a familiar composer.
As the saying goes, whatever floats your boat or to each their own. For sure, there are too many "follow the crowd" types and not enough unique or "think for yourselves" individuals and creators. Ryan Higa - his huge subscriber base and views is validation enough. But his awards show parody was amusing.
The film "Gook" on Netflix. If there is anything to watch on it, it is that! Perhaps E7 of "Altered Carbon" - might need to check it out at some point.
