Making new music

Traditional musical instruments not challenging enough for you? You could always make up your own.

Introducing, the bassoforte.

Stick to your music pal.Your reviews on the state quarter designs are nearly 100% wrong.They are ill informed, half baked and sophomoric(sophmoronic?)But this is a great and free country and you are entitled to your taste and opinion.But in reality, as I am an artist,I don't really have a right to an opinion about,let's say, brain surgery,just a right to make a fool of myself offering one when I am simply not qualified. My opinion... although it's great that you take the time and interest to blog about the designs, you stick to your music, which sounds pretty good to me.One thing I think we agree on... this is a great country where we can share our opinions freely ,whether well reasoned, justified or not.take care...JAYEYE

Hey, thanks for stopping by, Anon 2:06 (or is it JAYEYE?). And you know what? You're absolutely right. I am entitled to my taste and my opinion, and so are you. But, if I were you, I wouldn't confuse subjective opinion with the objective scientific and medical knowledge needed for brain surgery.

As for the quarter designs, I happen to think my opinions are 100% right. Most of the designs are lame and could have been made better by simple changes, but I suspect most of them were designed by committees, not actual artists. But, as you say, that's just my opinion. Take it or leave it.

As for the music, perhaps you should pay a little more attention before popping off on someone else's blog. I'm flattered that you think that's me in the video on this post, but it's not. It's something I ran across while surfing, and I admired the guy's creativity so much I thought I would give him a little wider exposure through my humble blog. So, though I actually used to be a musician, I am one no longer, and the guy in the video is someone else.

Glad you enjoyed it, though.
