-'the razor bunnies', makes me laugh now. Sometimes I think it was simply a place to wear our coustumes. We fought like mad - a little cesspool of anger and mental disorders - and lasted about 2 years.
Now (many years later), I'm listening to Esma (the Gypsy from Romania), the poet Neruda, and just lately, my sister has been sending me some Opera CDs and giving me the story behind the song, which is essential for me to properly understand the song. Oh my God, the passion. I get goosebumps just reading the lyrics. This is who's 'taking me away now'.
What kind of music do you write and like? Pretty funny job there Sean. What exactly is a biostatician? Are you a scientist? Did you pursue this because of your disorder, or did you happen to end up in this field?
Anyway, WORK REAL HARD for us,
