Once the head of a music school I was attending at the time introduced me onstage as “having come from a heavy metal background to refine” my playing by studying classical music. 

It pissed me off, and since he was actually my professor for several classes, I let him believe I was an ignorant metalhead with some kind of rare gift for the whole semester. I wore chainmaille and black clothes and leather and of course my hair and beard were really long. 

I was only busted in like DECEMBER when he caught me in a practice room working on the Arutunian trumpet concerto and recruited me for the brass ensemble.

I’ve wanted a cheap FM synth for a while now and came across this the other day for $3. I’m no musician by any means but this thing has been a blast to play around with,

oh man that takes me back. When I was 3 I bugged my parents about wanting to be a musician. I was certain that the way to get there was piano lessons. I bugged them for a year and they got me into lessons and bought me one of this exact model to work with.
