Composers, Comparisons, & a Light bulb

One of my favorite movies of all time is Amadeus. In my essay, “Music and Beer, (p. 60)” I talk at length about being taken to see that movie by my music teacher when I was a young child, and how the movie began my love affair with classical music and my adoration of the brilliant composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. To this day, I feel love anytime I hear any of Mozart’s music or play one of his pieces on my flute....more
I loved AMADEUS too, and think you have named the real point of it. Even if we are not as good ...more

Super Bowl Halftime Recap: Oil Meets Water

In general, I don't like talking about things so topical they literally expire in one day. I don't. But since I've got some time to kill before tickets go on sale, I'm going to give it a shot.If you know me, even a little bit, you know that I'm a huge fan of Bruno Mars, going back to the days of Nothin' on You. Let's also say that, since then, I've basically attained groupie status. His voice has so bewitched me, I've yet to break the spell. Basically, I'm in love with him, and nothing will ever change that....more

3 Lessons Entrepreneurs Can Learn from Taylor Swift at the 2014 Grammys

How swift was that? The 56th annual Grammys seemed to happen so fast, yet I couldn’t still forget how Taylor Swift rocked the night away. I’m not an avid fan neither a hater – but her music somehow inspires me personally. It was just personal until I read a lot of news about her manners during the event. I missed the whole show! So, knowing that the internet is the only possible way for me to watch it (or at least know the winners), I turned to my Twitter. And yes, there was Taylor Swift all over it, plus Madonna and the other showstoppers....more
