My dad gave me his house key today with this cool antique keychain!
lynchianbedhead asked: *You* know that music theory is interesting, and *I* know that music theory is interesting, but do *they* know? There's also the fact that my own music theory ideas/perspective is a bit mathier than the general approach, and the average person has an unfortunate but understandable aversion to math given how most math education works. But understanding the math of music leads to some interesting conclusions and really strips away the arbitrary stuff that gets taken for granted.
Do you hear that, everyone? Math makes music more fun! No, but really!!!
According to your replies, that poem I posted last night got me two criers and a sigher.
I’m taking that as a good thing.

Yes, I probably do need these. An APP conference purchase, mayhaps?
Do you know about the cable cars in San Francisco?
Sometimes I like to think our love is like them.
And I don’t just mean it
I want to ride you over
but I’m getting carried away,
like the cars
carry so many people away.
It’s not the cars themselves that do it,
you know —
there are steel cables underground,
and enormous grinding gears
pulling them always
up and forward,
through years and years.
And people come
smiling from all over the world
to see them
and to be moved by them
to impossible heights
on impossible hills.
I think our love is like that.
that 964 miles could be a hill
if not for the strength
of those deep running cables.
And maybe our love can be
like a national monument
that makes people smile
just at the sight of us,
and the sound of the way
our bells ring together.
I like to think of all the impossible hills we can climb.
sarahalyse asked: The one thing I'm sure about for my theoretical future wedding is using this line from Much Ado About Nothing in my vows: "Silence is the perfectest herald of joy. I were but little happy if I could say how much." Swoon.
Ohhhh yeah. That’s a good one. That’s just the kind of thing I’m looking for, too. Not that I’m going to steal your idea, of course.
Care to share?
I’m not even trying to write my vows yet.
I’m reading about how to write wedding vows and I’m already crying.
Some days I wish I could do this all day, but only if I didn’t have to see or talk to any of the idiot customers, ever. So I pour extra hearts to make up for how much I don’t <3 them.
