Normally I’d be kind of excited for a hurricane. But I’ll admit I used to read a lot of weather books; so when it says a hurricane is colliding with a stationary front, it dawns on me how epic that is. This has never happened before in my life. I said this yesterday on Facebook and I’ll reiterate: it is times like these I’m grateful that guitars and pianos don’t require electricity. Do your worst, Sandy.
Anyways, school kinda got cancelled today. I say “kinda” because only one of my two classes actually got cancelled; I slept through the other one. I don’t think I set my alarm, but at any rate, I don’t think I missed anything.
I’ve fallen asleep on a couch 3 nights in a row now. It wasn’t even intentional. Each of those nights, I was like “alright lemme just close my eyes for a bit…” and next think you know, it goes from 10:21 PM to 12:10 PM. I sleep a lot, clearly.
Whoops. I just got side-tracked for like 20 minutes. Tumblr does that to you, huh? Anyways
Well, hello. To whom it may concern, I’m Chris. I go to school for music and industry and stuff. I really enjoy it; it’s a really nice change of pace— but enough about me.
There, see? The title didn’t lie.
So recently while doing an interview, I was asked the question, “what does music do for you?”. Is it odd that it took me a minute, not that I didn’t know what to say, I was just trying to find the words strong enough to best illustrate what music really means to me. In the end, my answer was simple:
Sorry if that sounds super fancy cornypants cliche, but it’s my best and most honest answer. So honest, I’m considering getting its powerful meaning inked on my skin for life. One day, maybe. I mean— oh, I don’t know. I guess there’s no way for it to NOT sound a little corny. Maybe I’m just really good at interviews?
Probably not, I’m not that arrogant.
I feel like I should attach, or rather “upload” a photo?
