  1. I'll tune in when I can. I'm interested in the drug and meditation ones, in particular.
  2. I think the moral of the story is flawed, but I find the thinking of the character intriguing being that I'm interested in therapy and enjoy studying maladaptive thinking and behaviors.
  3. I love this movie because I find the story touching, beautifully told and I think the sets are brilliant. The score also adds a nice touch! While I think the film went with the right ending, it's not one I support. It's all about evasion from reality and building up tall tales about your life to make it feel greater than it is rather than making your life great within reality. Anyone seen it and agree? I've also read the book, but I don't recall it as well.
  4. I think I'm done with those two, I'm happy with the way they came out. I was just curious about your critique; I was a bit confused by your post above relating to those two pieces. Some people, as I said, thought they were some of my best. The different criteria we carry, implicitly or explicitly, in assessing various Art work makes all the difference in what we feel about it.
  5. Would you just prefer a more interesting harmony on these two works?
  6. Mind you, I took lessons from age 3 to about 16, but studied the Suzuki Method which focuses on training the ear. But I can sight-read, just not stupendously. I do not score out my music, I simply record them, and when I need to re-learn a work, I do it with my ears.
  7. You have very nice tone on the piano. The piece was very much a Blues progression!
  8. I didn't realize I was watching videos of you. For the Cherry Blossoms and Funnel Cake pieces of mine, I don't understand your critique, could you elucidate it? It doesn't seem like the progression is right.
  9. I know the stanza you speak of, it is what I would call the part B section. I'm only familiar with those chord changes by ear and having heard lots of Jazz. I can understand what you are saying though! Do you compose and/or play, you seem to know a lot about music!
  10. I thought you might like this one Dream_Weaver. It's less predictable all around, which you have indicated as being a value to you!
  11. I'm not a chef at all, but I attempted a new recipe I found on YouTube today and they came out great! My father enjoyed them plain while my mother and I enjoyed the sweeter side of life by adding a bit of powdered sugar on top. They tasted best while still fresh; they got a bit soggy afterwards.
  12. The Fountainhead Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Dracula
  13. Frankenstein by Mary Shelly.
  14. Yes, I agree Caramel Popcorn is the most interesting piece on my page. I thank you for your thought out assessment of my pieces, however, my target audience is the elderly in nursing homes, so more of my songs will be predictable and in line with Blossoms and Cake. Everyone's take is different. I played both Popcorn and Cake for my mom today, and she preferred Cake by far and said it's one of my best.
  15. Thank you for listening and liking Dream_Weaver, I'm happy you enjoyed the rather eccentric piece.
  16. And thanks to the both of you for listening!
  17. That's an interesting take. I do like playing rather slow so it becomes more meditative, though, but I appreciate your comments.
  18. Very nice indeed, thanks for sharing!
  19. I have had the recent revelation that I am a New Age Artist. The genre is known for it's tranquil sounds and peaceful feelings. I've narrowed down which old works I want to keep, and found a vision for the future. I am more aware of my technical ability and boundaries than ever, and am composing at that level. My technical abilities aren't for those that like to be dazzled by fast scales, but if you enjoy a strong melodic hook, please do listen. I felt the need to create a new thread on this similar topic because I am having a fresh start to my musical journey. You can listen to my youtube channel if you'd like, it's linked below. Thank you, Nakulan https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyUv3y1LKuZfwbOgBiV30dA/videos
  20. Yes, I'm aware. That's why I said based on what they have chosen to show us.
