want to play drums in a jazz group and dedicate more time to it when I get older. I miss my drumset and being in a band in general :/ (Random example, but) That jazz trio that plays in New Orleans Square at Disney Land might not get paid much, but that job that seems like so much fun! Just playing oldies or standards and making kids and families smile… Jamming and collaborating is one of the funnest things ever and I hope I can get back to it soon.

Brian Eno’s Windows95 startup sound slowed down 23x.
"The thing from the agency said, "We want a piece of music that is inspiring, universal, blah- blah, da-da-da, optimistic, futuristic, sentimental, emotional," this whole list of adjectives, and then at the bottom it said ‘and it must be 3.25 seconds long.’" — Brain Eno, June 2 1996
