    Santa Claus

    The difference between imaginary friends and Santa is that the kid invented the friend whereas the parent tells the child about Santa. Fiction works are known to be make-believe as well.

    Do you let your kids believe in Santa, or do you teach them about reality from a young age? RIght now, without kids, I don't believe in allowing children to have this delusion.
  3. Yes on all counts. Is that in contradiction with Rand's ethics?
  4. Happy Halloween! Here I am performing "The Michael Meyers Theme Song" from the film, "Halloween". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-r0rRBJeGkg&lc=z23uttep5nuagpkdracdp432ld4nfgmcv1zqreebxcpw03c010c
  5. "Northern Lights" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8o7VM_ApTc&feature=youtu.be
  6. I'll tune in when I can. I'm interested in the drug and meditation ones, in particular.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Would you just prefer a more interesting harmony on these two works?
  11. 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.
  12. You have very nice tone on the piano. The piece was very much a Blues progression!
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
