Quote of the Day
The muse is not an angelic voice that sits on your shoulder and sings sweetly. The muse is the most annoying whine.

I have pictures of me sitting in the racquetball court in my pajamas with an acoustic guitar, and Wolfgang is probably just two-and-a-half-feet tall.

Eddie Van Halen

It's like, if you can't focus on a movie for 90 minutes without looking at your phone, then don't go to the movies!
