On Alan Moore: I think everyone, especially any and all creative folks, should take the time to watch this short interview answer by Moore. It remains one of the most profoundly inspiring, moving things that I keep coming back to over and over again. ytb.trom.tf/L9kV1eydsKU?t=4m49s

I couldn't figure out where the comma(s) in "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" should go, so I hit myself in the face.

Out of 9 justices, 3 were appointed by a man who tried to overthrow the US government (& elected via minority). Those 3 will decide whether the US will legalize forcing people to give birth against their will. Legitimacy requires consent of the governed. They are dismantling it

👇🏼This is better than my snarky tweet.
Hey team: Buy more music from friends and cool people on Bandcamp and listen to that instead of using Spotify so much. It helps them out a lot more when you get throw down some cash! (And if you need recommendations on which music to buy there, ask. :p)

Jordan Peterson is our generation's most prolific thinker. He thinks up to 500 thoughts PER DAY. Not only that, he says every single one of these thoughts OUT LOUD, even if nobody is listening, even if he's been asked to leave to room 4 or 5 times already. He won't stop thinking

Is there a library in Ireland that’d be able to give me access to the sheet music of the score to Psycho? Alternatively, is there somewhere I could access it (legally) online? (Maybe @HerrmannMovie would know?)

I had two reviews in the JM last week. This is a solid album of interesting works for solo violin.
