Recently, I have gotten addicted to the Beatles once again, as is normal for many people. I like the whole of their work, including classics, like Yellow Submarine and All You Need is Love, as well as their lesser known songs like Boys, including some others like Get Back or Helter Skelter. Now, the first time I was introduced to the Beatles was around 2nd grade, maybe 3rd grade, in music class, which didn't really teach how to play music, or very much about music; I may have heard it before music class, but I don't remember it very well. The experience of listening to the Beatles for the first time is hard to describe, but it is a great feeling. When I listened to the Beatles in music class, I actually did sort of choreographed (but not really) motions with a group of other people, and this was the first time that I ever got to bond with anyone, but alas, it didn't last for long. Oh well.

"I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob." - I Am the Walrus, a famous nonsensical song

I've read the TruthContest page for the Beatles, and I think that the writer is silly. For one, he states that what John Lennon means by "half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it just to reach you" in his song "Julia" is, to quote, "that half of what [the Beatles] say is meaningful, and the rest is just there to reach us." He pretty much just inverted the statement that John Lennon made and stated that as the meaning of John Lennon's statement. I would go off and talk more about it, but that would take too much time, so I would rather just send you to this supposedly enlightening page, that discusses the meanings of many of the songs by the Beatles.

As I have now gotten into music and making music, I have created a few midi tests, even though they are only drum tracks, since I suck making music for the other instruments, but there will be more on the way.

Anyways, I thought I would talk a bit about my experience with the Beatles, so... goodbye for now.

Recently, I have met the most stupid troll on the planet that goes by the username, FrasierFanatic1, and never in my life have I seen such a stupid person. He absolutely refuses to change his viewpoint, regardless of validity. He will not stop replying to anyone who talks to him, which leads to endless comment chains that have no meaning, and it is essentially impossible to get out of it. The longest discussion I have seen him create is about the "fact" that you can choose to be a homosexual, which of course is completely incorrect. Do not reply to any of his comments, or else you will be sucked in to an endless and cancerous "discussion." By the way, I, for some reason, like writing my messages formally. If you do not like it, do not read any more of them.

Conlang and Experimental Story

I am working on a conlang, as well as a excerpt-style story, both of which are, of course, works-in-progress. Please note that the conlang page uses a font and characters that may not display correctly; I will figure out a way to make it more user-friendly.
