The Answer Was Inside of You All Along
Well, well, well.
I’ll be tech’ing a marching band next week. This is good news.
bibic asked: I like that you try to get people to think =) don't think people do enough of that... especially on tumblr. ;)
Humans are task oriented people. I mentioned this to Chase the other day, but a lot of the time I say things without feeling the full gravity of someone else’s words. I read this in a book called Performance Success about truly, well… performing at one’s best. Most of the problems we have with doing anything, and this is also in the book Making Things Happen, is that we’re...
You’re lying a field somewhere. There are lilies in a pond next to this field, but the grass is so tall that you have no awareness of this fact beyond the smell of water. It has been ten days since you’ve had sufficient water in your body, but you’re making due with the situation at hand. Feeling comes into your legs…
So we’re at another roadblock in life. You’re not between a rock and hard place anymore, but you’re seeing yourself in the mirror for the first time. This image is haunting because you don’t know who this person is. The self-image you once obtained is completely eschewed. You begin to see the world as a tarnished version of this as well, reality begins to seem unreal. I...

Why a Pop Song is a Horoscope.
Thanks for joining me here today in the world of Brandon Miller’s outlook on the current Music situation. I’m very optimistic about things and I think things are going to be coming around to boom very quickly, but it’s time to point out some of the realities (whether good or bad) about Music, the music Industry, and Musicians. Lyrics plague (and I do mean “plague”)...
Why Pop Music is similar to Horoscopes
To be explained soon.
I think the worst form of Ear Training is telling...
Right. Go LISTEN to Spanish and pick it up without asking any questions. That doesn’t make any sense.
The fact is that there is nothing as dreamy and poetic, nothing as radical,...– Paul Lockhart (via nerdthemusical) (via fuckyeahmath) Uh, Music, duh. Math is good for practical purposes. On a metaphysical scale, I’m going with Music.
I think it's funny when Orlando folks advertise...
It’s like, “Hai guise, I’m going to have to walk a lot and drive with the people who are making it harder and harder to live in Florida.” That’s nice, I guess. Oh, and there is a few cool buildings, clubs, theatres, performance venues. But I guess just saying you’re going is cool.

God isn’t interested in watching you enact some crackpot notion you have about...– Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat Pray Love) (via courtneypatterson) I’m going to read this book.

YOU KNOW WHAT IS REALLY ARTSY FARTSY?
TEXT IN THE FORM OF AN IMAGE. Because it’s not an image already… or anything.

simplyrachel: dingosatemybaby: incepted: ourloveisaplace: rockyhorrors: 1000scientists:likeneelyohara: I think a lot of us can agree on if you do not credit your posts/ get your posts from weheart it/ only reblog and text post, you should consider leaving tumblr, or changing your tumblr to something more suiting. I know this sounds ridiculous but I honestly think ( as i’ve said...

Can we evolve, please?
We’ve come to the age where actions control a person’s behavior.
Work today was shitty as fuck. Got shoved out of the way by my boss while making a pita. Man, I’m high class, making goddamned pitas. Then, Gig today was swell. Drummer could have used some work, but the sax player (a great friend of mine) and the pianist (good friend of mine) were incredible. Need to practice more to play with these guys more regularly. Music is my true love because it...
Let’s be reasonable. I am an asshole. This is not because I am a guy, but because I’ve chosen to be one. That being said, it’s like making the statement, “I’m a liar.” It’s a paradox. My ex-girlfriend could not be patient enough this evening to wait or to contact me in a way other than facebook chat, which inevitably drover her down the road of un-adding...

We become the worst kind of stupid.
Grand Death Auto Reprise
Sirens are shrieking birds coming from the hats of cop cars whizzing by the standers of by. This vehicle is all but giving out under the snow-blind haze of wisps and clouds falling from above. I’m not here. I am here. The car sandwiches against a wall with a short thud that pricks the ears like a razor going close by. I miss the tunnel by a split second flick of the wrist. My head is buried...

Schweeeeeeeeet. Finally. Alright. Cool.
Recent Keys to Music.
Here I go again giving advice I have no place to give, but it works for me. Ideas for really listening to Music (or doing anything in general): Give all of your attention to it. Turn off the lights: turn off the cellphone, the computer, the television, anything that might be a distraction. You and Music. Everybody else is gone. Use headphones. Don’t listen quietly. If you like having it...
I've carefully crafted a persona.
ONE DAY, YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE ME.
UNTIL THEN, I’LL KEEP HACKING YOUR EMAIL.
WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?!
RISKING SKIN CANCER? I LIVE ON THE EDGE!!!!
THEY CALL IT 'WORK' FOR A REASON.
THEY ALSO CALL YOUR BOYFRIEND ‘A SLUT’ FOR A REASON.
LIVE THE DREAM.
IT’LL LAST ABOUT FIVE REAL MINUTES ACCORDING TO INCEPTION.
THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK.
AND WASTE ANOTHER FIVE SECONDS? I AIN’T GONNA LIVE FOREVER!
