Why do younger men like older women?

Before I answer this provocative question, allow me to preface my answer by stating that my thoughts on this matter are my own opinions based upon observation and many years performing in various rock bands.
Younger men are attracted to older women because older woman are mature, emotionally stable, have more experience, are financially independent, have a low risk for unwanted pregnancy, and... they are eager and willing to do whatever is necessary to satisfy their young lover, including roleplaying, fantasy and just about anything the human mind is able to imagine.
*Note: If what I wrote offends you, I apologize. I realize that topics such as sex make some people uncomfortable, which is why I seldom discuss it on social networks. People believe what they want to believe about such intimate matters. However, if you are a musician who has traveled the world and performed large venues, you undoubtably can relate to what I have written here. Finally, just because I express these salacious opinions, does not mean that I condone the behavior or encourage this type of behavior. The truth is that I personally disagree with this type of behavior and I would discourage young men from getting involved with older women who are their mothers or grandmothers age, especially if these women are either married or currently in a relationship, which many are.

Why does life hurts too much?

Couldn't have said it better, life is just too painful to bear. It's been 5 years since I last went out with someone and of course I hear the usual platitudes of "It's your personality that matters" and that kind of stuff, which has proven to be ineffectual even in the college years. Most people cannot comprehend what being FA entails, so they cannot understand the deep-seeded issues that effect our personalities, health, and other factors. It just hurts too much that the platitudes you hear being contradicted throughout moments of your life and knowing that lowlifes who never put any effort to life get to reap the benefits of life's joys & wonders.
I fell asleep staring at the DNP pills I was going to take. I'll be 48 in a few months, and there are sixth graders with more relationship experience than I have. All I ever wanted was one chance. One fucking chance. Oh, sure, I'd botch it up and I'd be alone after that, but I could cling to the fact that I was given one chance and that someone actually claimed to love me. It probably wouldn't be enough, but I'm desperate enough to dream that it would be enough acceptance to start being able to lie to myself about being a good person and worthy and deserving of love. But I'm not human enough to even qualify for that kind of success before rejection.
All I have is music, and I'm evidently not good enough at it to pay the bills. Online, people will say to "get up and do this, go here, play here, write this, get his famous musician to record your work, perform there, just go and do it" like it's some magical thing that you can just walk up while in a funk and play in some famous hall perfectly or have some famous person give you clout with your music. I don't have the desire to practice or write anymore. Life is too much work, and when you're alone and have no one to share the joys and troubles with, it's just not worth it. I am weary and ready for it to be over. I think I'm going to sell or dispose of everything I own so that I'll die in an empty room. It's not much: a barely-running minivan, two electronic pianos, music textbooks, cables and microphones, printers and cheap computers. A few pots and pans from years when I was able to afford a place with a kitchen. A microwave. Clothes and bedsheets and towels. I don't think there is any happiness or success that would be able to negate all the bad that has happened. No one is guaranteed happiness; we are all guaranteed pain and suffering. It's like telling someone who has gambled away $20,000,000 to keep pulling the slot machine handle because there's a chance they might get a $300,000 jackpot a few years away.
I deserve all the bad things that have happened to me. They are all my responsibility. And because of that, no one is going to volunteer to help me undo them or make things right. That's too much energy for someone else, and I'm not valuable enough for someone to spend that time, money, and energy. Besides, some things can't be made right.

How would you describe your personality? 🙂

I am shy at first when I meet someone, but once I get to know someone better and comfortable with them, I can chat their ear off and become annoying. I talk a lot…..
I am athletic. I like to play sports. Especially badminton, shinny (unprofessional hockey), volleyball and ultimate frisbee.
I am cheerful and positive. I like to talk to people, compliment people, and sometimes I am too positive and people look at me weirdly when I compliment them too much.
I am kind and respectful. I like to treat others with respect, and treat them how I want to be treated. I respect everyone, no matter their race, culture, ethnicity, religion, etc. I’m shy when you first meet me but once I’m used to you I’m going to act my normal self and keep you laughing 24/7.
I’m very sweet and kind. I help others when they need it and be here for everyone that needs me. If you need something important I will make sure I try my best to get it for you.
I love to sing. Singing keeps me calm and makes me happy.
I smile a lot. I love to smile and it lets others know you can get through the day if you just smile. Introverted but highly talkative if you make the first move; perfectionistic; straight-A student with not a lot of common sense, unfortunately; bookworm; musician; daydreamer; self-conscious; absolutely hopeless romantic! Long dark brown hair—if the light hits it just right, you can see my natural coppery highlights. Unfortunately, the light rarely hits it just right. My hair isn't naturally straight (I flat-iron it), but it's not very pretty when I air-dry it (as in it's straightish on one side and curly-wavy on the other side). Dark brown, slightly diamond-shaped eyes with long eyelashes (the bottom ones are very long, but the top ones tend to go out more than curl up, so you can't really tell). I've been told my eyes are pretty three times and once I was told I had “fish scale" dark lines in my irises, how to describe my nose lol. My lips are full and my teeth are straight from two years of braces. Both sides of my family have big teeth, so I have big teeth too. I have an oval face, thick eyebrows that aren't really that dark, and not really any cheekbones that stand out. I look really good in maroon/burgundy, olive green, and navy blue. When I wear makeup, I keep it natural-looking and don't wear heavy, bold eyeshadow or the “brick brows". If you need someone to bring you down from your high horse then I’m here. I’m the guy in the group who presents the problems to a plan or project so they don’t do anything rash. Switches between “morose, depressing and dour.” , “Unhinged, Sadistic and Evil.” and “Completely amicable and affable.” I have no Idea which one will come out when I talk to you.

What is your biggest regret?

nai269549’s Profile Photoʟᴇɪᴀɴ ♕
Trying to do too many things at the same time. Trying to get through things while already needed to go get help long time ago already. So pushing myself way too hard.
Be patient. Love yourself. Get to know who you are truly and learn to embrace that person. Before you know it the pandemic will be passed and you’ll be surprised how people gravitate towards confidence and self awareness! That I didn’t trust myself that my ex and her family were actually mentally abusing me.
Recently I realized I was too complacent at my previous job and I regret not trying to advance my career earlier. Hopefully I can turn things around this year.
Never trying to make more friends, or even ask girls out that I had a crush on in high school. Not asking people on dates like at all. I only did it once and she actually said yes (it didn't last too long because I moved) but if she said yes then who knows how many others would have, I didn't put myself out there. My first relationship, it was toxic and I was too young too deal with all the drama.
Being too invested in relationships.
Started smoking and later drinking. Thankfully I have quit smoking.
I hardly left my house, had no real friends. My biggest regret is not being with my mum in her final moments, I mean I would visit her every 2 days but it wasn’t good enough, I still hate myself for not being with my mum as she ascended to the place where only true angels go.
Drinking and blacking out and having a ptsd episode at my in laws house. I told them I didn’t want anything and couldn’t drink but they wouldn’t take no as an answer. Needless to say it didn’t go well. That was years ago.
Not learning an instrument as a child. It's so much harder as an adult. That I let people (mostly concerned family) talk me out of pursuing computer and electrical engineering in college. Med school never worked out, so if I could change one thing in my life, it would be that. I can't afford another bachelor's, but I'm learning to program now (never too late for that). I generally live with no regrets, but that is the biggest thing that comes closest to a regret.
In adult life, I'd have to say moving from California to Texas in an effort to satisfy my wife's insatiable material appetite and buying the big shiny house. Wife's gone now, house is gone now, and I live in a shitty rent house in Texas with no friends, and unable to move back because of agreements on geographic proximity concerning the child. In younger life, I was a very good musician. I got recruited to some really top notch music schools, but I listened to my high school counselor, and opted to go to a regular college in pursuit of a traditional white collar career. Turns out I just don't have the personality to survive long in an office environment, and I've got no outlet to express myself. I undoubtedly would've been much worse off financially, but my very being would have been a lot more satisfied.

Tell me your favorite musical artist and favorite song of theirs?

For me, this is one of the most difficult questions to answer because I enjoy so many artists and composers, and at various times in my life I was attracted to different songs and bands. The other aspect of my musical taste centers around instrumentation, harmony, song writing, poetic integrity, improvisation, counterpoint, creativity and the actual performance. It is complicated. So let's simplify the process and focus on the Classic Rock Ballad. For me, the band would be Journey and the vocalist and composer Steve Perry.
Example#1 - Rock Ballad
Journey - Open Arms

I have many other examples for various styles of music.
Remember, these are not trivial questions and my answers are not arbitrary, but thoughtful responses based upon years as a performing musician. -Enjoy-

Long Answer: I recently started developing a crush that would never work out (First crush in almost 4 years, what a disaster). Also been thinking recently I might be autistic and that's kinda weighing on me as well. On top of this I have 2 exams coming up that I'm nowhere near prepared for. Couple that with my crippling fear of failure (to the point where I'm scared to ask someone how to use a new printer and have to hide in a toilet cubicle and end up having a panic attack in there.. over a fucking printer). Oh and the 30 or so rejections for part time jobs I've had in the last 5 or 6 months - I spent 3 years volunteering and as much as I would have loved to continue that I couldn't continue to give my time to unpaid work whilst barely having enough money for 3 meals a day as a student. I have a habit of over-thinking so whenever I feel down I stop to make sure I gather every reason why I'm sad and overwhelm myself with it, I always seem to fly to emotional extremes. Not being able to see my youngest granddaughter. Her mom is....terrible and we don't have contact. I can't even legally do anything because I am not actually blood related, but no matter what anyone says she is my granddaughter. I just hope her mom does not mess her up too much. I just wish I could see her.
I want to be an entrepreneur and novelist. Bottomline, I want a freedom, but I'm not sure yet if that's what I really want. Because in the past years I've been changing course from wanting to be a detective, a musician, an athlete, aaand more.
Plus, entrepreneur and writer are two hard things in my country. Entrepreneurs are started to be appreciated because the boom in tech startups and society has experienced the benefits from it. But writer? People labelled it as an underpaid job, some could even say "how will you feed your family?" if I'd say I'll be a writer. I know, a successful writer will get paid a lot. There are examples in my country for successful writers. But then, there are only few percentages of them. Plus, reading is not a big thing here. What's big here is when you are a person of high position in a company, or if you have a shitton of salary.
I have empathy for homeless people too. I acknowledge that often times they end up homeless from multiple circumstances that aren't always their fault. People assume all homeless people chose to be. It's not like that... unfortunate things happened to them. Now animals they are adopted/raised by their owner. It's no different than a homeless toddler. They're a near helpless product of their owners environment and they have no choice but to suffer with them unless they run off....

What’s a piece of advice someone’s given you that’s stuck the most to you?

My father once told me: "Son, never mess with another mans wife or girlfriend. There are many fish in the ocean." And as I performed for many years as a professional musician, I never forgot what my father had taught me as a boy. So anytime I found myself in a compromised situation, I always walked away... without exception.

HELLO! 😇 How do you feel about modern music? Is it better or worse than older songs?

arzorizvi’s Profile PhotoArzo Abbas
Well in my case i grew up listening to 90s rock music and that era was amazing like I remember the days when I used to free roam in GTA VC while listening to the ballads on V Rock radio station and the tv channels at that time like ary muzik, aag etc were amazing. The band culture scene was at its peak at that time. There were proper bands dropping their albums with cool art covers and band posters. You'd have to wait for months just to get a rs.20 wali pirated cd of Linkin Park or you'd wait for a live gig show to attend. So yeah, I grew up listening to rock music. Its a part of me now. Its in my roots.
I'm really sad about the fact that rock music is disappearing from mainstream charts because I think the sound of rock music perfectly defines the sound of the second half of the 20th century, perhaps in the way that jazz music, which was the mainstream pop music of the early part of the 20th century, defined that era. Now we live in a very electronic world, surrounded by electronic music. So yeah, it keeps evolving and as a musician, I'm depressed about the fact that its disappearing but also excited that music continues to evolve, to change and that there will always be numerous possibilities to it.

HELLO  How do you feel about modern music Is it better or worse than older songs

When and how do you listen to music? In what situations do you listen? How long do you listen? What do you do while listening? Are you concentrated on the music? Are there any friends with you? ...? In general: what are some of your listening expieriences?

When I'm walking the dog. I walk her about 2 hours a day in 30 - 45 min periods, so I will generally download an album from Spotify before I go. I find during these walks I can concentrate on the music a bit more, which I like as I don't really have time these days to just sit and listen.
I usually toss a record on when I get home no matter what I’m doing. My idea of “vegging out,” is listening to music while reading, painting, gardening, or doing logic puzzles instead of watching television or shopping or something along those lines. A lot of times I’ll just sit there listening to the music and looking at the album art and reading through liner notes. HOW: Vinyl. I’ve been collecting for most of my life and I think started because what I was interested in was either in my parents record collection or it was easier for me to track down on vinyl than CD or MP3 at that point. I have always been awestruck by this entire curated piece of art that I was able to own. I really appreciate that an entire album was conceptualized as this experience to engage all senses and is presented as a complete piece of cohesive, thoughtful art. I really only listen to CDs or digital downloads when I’m driving. FINDING NEW MUSIC: This is going to sound absurd, but I basically just make friends with men at least twice my age and pick their brains. That demographic seems to “get” what I’m really lusting after in an auditory experience and can somehow always pull together some bizarre and obscure gem from the periphery to broaden my horizons. I’m a younger woman who is obsessed with the weird & wonderful and I really take the time to appreciate what’s out there. I grew up with a musician father and spent my childhood around great and substantial music, and I did not really get an introduction into popularly marketed commercial music. With that being said, it’s hard to find new music when you’ve spent your entire life with the privilege of hearing such a wide variety of spectacular music so most of my free time is spent gaining insight into the sources of inspiration for the pieces of work I really value most. It’s a lot of reading and talking to people who know better than I do. Weird, I know.
How: These days, primarily through Spotify. I first started listening to music seriously as a teenager, I would say. Both my parents were big music people, but by the time I was at that age, my dad mostly pirated stuff so it's not like we had a lot of CDs laying around. Though I do know they had a lot of cassette tapes back in the day. A lot of my early music taste was formed by the stuff my parents listened to, which was a lot of classic rock and pop and stuff from the 70's to the 90's. But even then, it was rarely in the way of full-length albums, as opposed to playlists and things of that nature.

Quelle célébrité t'excite ?

undefinx1790’s Profile PhotoUndefinXxX
I was never a fan of 5H so I have no particular interest in any of them, I mean they're all good looking (especially Lauren) but Camila is easily the best looking and I'm a huge fan of her not just because of how she looks, but as a person and a musician I think she's amazing.
Oliver Platt. My husband and I were just talking about this yesterday! Ever since 'The Three Musketeers' I have had the biggest crush on Oliver Platt. He's funny and chubby but only to the point of being cuddly. Another one I like is James Spader, but that's because of his role in Secretary.
This comment may seem odd itself, but Shailene Woodley. Although I admit that she's a very pretty woman, it's actually not that aspect of her that I find attractive. It's her insanely weird streak that I find awesome. She's (from what I've read) basically a survivalist. I mean, she kills all the meat she eats herself, she makes her own medicine, she gathers her own water from a spring in the mountains herself, she does hiking, and she's wildly into all this kind of stuff. She's one of those girls who I wouldn't be surprised if she could hot-wire a car. I don't do most of that myself (I'm into hiking, but not so much the other stuff). I just think it's a really weird yet incredibly cool thing for a person to do.
I feel strangely attracted to Joker and Riddler, their mind works in ways you can never understand. It's fascinating. Celebrity, Chris Evans, he has this freakishly kind smiling face you want to wake up to every morning. The way he smiles is like he can't get angry and he probably forgives you right away. Yep. I was doing a play in college. I had to do a mild rape scene. I just tore her shirt off and throw her on the bed before it was interrupted by the hero. The second full dress rehearsal and... Boioioioing. I don't think anyone noticed, but I silently judged myself. Turns out, the actress was attracted to me and a couple months later we dated and had consensual sex. I never told her, but I attribute it to her pheromones that she subconsciously let out. At least, that's what I tell myself so I don't constantly ask, "What is wrong with me?"
I didn't get aroused on stage, but I did forget to wear the prop boxers with the fly sewn shut. My junk came out as I was pulling my pants during a scene. It was a sunday matinee with a senior center group in the audience... and it was the only performance of the play my friends and roommates could attend.... and it was the day they decided to video tape. Good times!

I agree. As a musician, I appreciate many musical instruments; however, when I perform, I play the guitar, my one true love. How one can claim to play multiple instruments or love multiple partners simultaneously, has never made much sense to me.

Can taste in music change your opinion about a person?

Unfortunately, yes. I am trying to overcome that but, being a musician, it is difficult when people listen to music that I personally do not think qualifies as music and is something that I would never perform or would quit performing if I was forced to perform it. I won't mention any styles because I do not want to offend.

What are your thoughts about making mistakes? And what if you’re the one making a mistake? Like how do you deal with them? ☺️

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
Thank you for this excellent question!
What are my thoughts about mistakes? I am an expert at mistake making.
How do I deal with my mistakes? Well I do what any normal person does....I blame somebody else. lol
I am joking.....It was a joke!
Do you know why I say I am an expert at making mistakes? Because I am a musician and to become proficient playing an instrument, you must be able to admit your mistakes, because as an aspiring musician you will make literally thousands and thousands of mistakes i.e. chords, scales, sight reading, harmony, ear training, and performing songs. If you are afraid of making mistakes or if you feel compelled to blame other people whenever you do make a mistake: Never Become a Musician.
Music has taught me many important lessons. One of the most valuable lessons music has taught me is to be honest with myself, listen to what I am playing and admit when I have made a mistake.
What do I do when I make a mistake?
1. I admit it and take ownership for it.
2. I correct the mistake.
Not admitting that you have made a mistake will prevent you from improving and will most definitely lead to mediocrity. If your goal is to be the best that you can be and to strive for perfection, acknowledging and correcting your mistakes is essential.

How do/did internships (if you have/had them) usually go for you?

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
Hello Yentl. The closest thing I have had to an internship was when I attended night school for Electronic Engineering and I was working during the day setting up, configuring and repairing network systems for Motorola/Codex. The "internship" was great because I received pay plus benefits and much of what I studied was directly applicable to my job as a technician. I always perform better when course work is 50% theory and 50% practical (hands on).
I also had the same type of experience as a musician where a band hires me contingent upon me attending practice sessions and learning all of their material. Once again, this is comprised of both theory (music) and then hands on (performance). So the hands on aspect of an internship which then rolls into employment is an outstanding way to develop your skill set while also generating income and pursuing a career that you find both interesting and rewarding.

Hello Alexander. Wow I am in awe of your guitar collection. Thank you very much for sharing it. Having a collection like that I am sure you play great. I love Telecasters. I have to admit, I'm not a good guitar player and I don´t know much about amps or effects but I´m a good listener (+)

James, it is true that I have been playing since I was 10 years old and the fact is that I should be a much better musician than I am; but, I made a decision after obtaining a degree in music to pursue a career as a network engineer to provide for my family. The good news is that my son Shawn (who plays sax) is far more accomplished as a musician than I am. In fact, my best friend Matt who recently died, was another tremendous musician (pianist).

StainTheRocker’s Profile PhotoStain Silmarillion (James)
James, no te preocupes. Hablo inglés y uso un traductor. Como músico, siempre me molesta cuando la grabación o lo que el público escucha sufre de una calidad de sonido degradada por lo que escucho en mis auriculares. En los viejos tiempos, antes de la salida directa, teníamos amplificadores en el escenario y podíamos escucharnos a nosotros mismos, pero no necesariamente a los instrumentos del otro lado del escenario. Así que siempre ha sido el objetivo crear el sonido "perfecto" en el escenario y luego transmitir ese sonido exacto a la audiencia y las pistas grabadas. Se necesita un gran ingeniero de sonido con una audición excelente y una sensación de audio de calidad (tono, balance, ecualizador y efectos) para reproducir y amplificar el sonido con precisión.
James, don't worry. I speak English and use a translator. As a musician, it always bothers me when the recording or what the audience hears suffers from degraded sound quality from what I hear on my headphones. In the old days, before direct out, we had amps on stage and we could hear ourselves, but not necessarily the instruments on the other side of the stage. So it has always been the goal to create the "perfect" sound on stage and then convey that exact sound to the audience and the recorded tracks. It takes a great sound engineer with excellent hearing and a quality audio feel (tone, balance, EQ, and effects) to reproduce and amplify sound accurately.

If you knew that you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

The first thing that I would do is pray, and thank my God for blessing me with a healthy and joyous life. The second thing I would do, is inform my family and closest friends, while asking them to celebrate my life, our friendship, and the good times that we were fortunate enough to share together. The third thing I would do, is take my trusted companion (princess) for a long walk along the beach; to meditate, while listening to the ocean waves crash and the birds sing our favorite melodies, as we watch the clouds roll bye and behold the good-bye sunset.
Finally, I would request those who loved me, to read a few of my beloved poems during the funeral mass, while also asking my dear musician friends to perform three of my favorite songs; so that family, friends and my trusted companion, can bid me a final farewell.

Do you think Michael Jackson had hits or was he massively overrated? Some say he copied elvis

Everyone is influenced from someone. MJ and Elvis are two different people. Elvis was Rock and Roll whereas MJ was Pop. Elvis came off as more of a hunk whereas MJ came off as more of a musician. Both talented singers, but totally different stage presence. MJ grabs his crotch doing the moonwalk, but he doesn't do it because he wants people to see it. He does it because that's his style. If the fans love it, he'll do it, and that's what MJ did best.
Saying MJ had no hits is like saying Boney M never did cocaine. It's just not true.

The blue ocean that the red sun
Used to wash its face turns black
The white sky that had clouds and
Rain and the wind turns gray
I leave the darkness that finds my heart
Even the cold shadow that covers the night starts to harden
If the ice melts
A warmer song would have come out
But why is the ice so cold?
Why is it so cold?

Ton plus grand regret ?

Lea_chts’s Profile PhotoLéa
I was once on a train and I witnessed a man viciously verbally abusing a boy around the age of 7 or 8. He was yelling at the kid, calling him stupid, telling him that he was worthless, and no one loved him. When the kid started crying, the man laughed and called the boy a pussy. He told him that his mother didn't love him and that if he was going to keep crying, he should just kill himself.
There are a series of unfortunate events in my life upon which I look back and think to myself, "If only I hadn't made that decision." Thing is, there is always a decision preceding it that ultimately led me down the wrong path anyway. In adult life, I'd have to say moving from California to Texas in an effort to satisfy my wife's insatiable material appetite and buying the big shiny house. Wife's gone now, house is gone now, and I live in a shitty rent house in Texas with no friends, and unable to move back because of agreements on geographic proximity concerning the child. In younger life, I was a very good musician. I got recruited to some really top notch music schools, but I listened to my high school counselor, and opted to go to a regular college in pursuit of a traditional white collar career. Turns out I just don't have the personality to survive long in an office environment, and I've got no outlet to express myself. I undoubtedly would've been much worse off financially, but my very being would have been a lot more satisfied.
Six years ago I broke up with a long time girlfriend, she was coming out of a severe deppression due to the death of her parents in a car accident, we were fighting one night, I don't even remember why, I just remember it was a stupid meaningless fight. It was 2 am, she told me she never wanted to see me again, then grabbed her keys to her motorbike and left. She was drunk too, She drove out to the beach and drowned herself. I still know I could have and should have stopped her.
That I let people (mostly concerned family) talk me out of pursuing computer and electrical engineering in college. Med school never worked out, so if I could change one thing in my life, it would be that. I can't afford another bachelor's, but I'm learning to program now (never too late for that). I generally live with no regrets, but that is the biggest thing that comes closest to a regret.
I wasn't a bad kid. I didn't do drugs, steal, or anything really stupid like that. I was very well behaved. I just didn't do my homework. I was a fast learner, and would get A's and B's on my tests, but since homework was like 80% of my grades in high school, I was failing classes. I knew I wanted to be a software engineer when I was only 15. But since I didn't do my homework, even after spending an extra year in high school, I didn't have enough credits to graduate, so college didn't happen.

What was your childhood dream job? Did you follow that dream? What was your dream job as a kid and what made you realise that job wasn't right for you?

I don't really have a dream job today - being retired now that isn't necessary. My dream job as a child? I had several but the top ones were always musician and pilot. Neither came true, well I did do a tour of Europe with a band when I was 18 that was my only truly professional gig. I was an amateur / semi pro musician for years. But as that simply costs you money rather than earns it I doubt it counts. I don't even get royalty cheques any more now. I just did a job that paid the bills and I was ok at. The pilot thing did sort of lead to that, as I left school I was offered a trainee software engineer position at a local firm that made avionics and my interest in aviation at that time led me to applying there etc. I wanted to be a musician. But I have a learning disability that makes it really hard to learn things at a normal pace, so I'd keep getting frustrated trying to learn songs when I was little. By the time I understood how to teach myself things and actually get it to stick I realized that making a good income with it would be incredibly difficult/impossible. I want to go to school and become a sound tech or producer, but there's not much money in that either. I don't know, the things I'm interested in aren't good enough for a full time job so I've made my peace of having a shitty retail job forever. Maybe be a producer on the side, one day. Edit: I wanted to join the army too, but mini 11-14yr old me thought self harm would fix my problems! So now that's completely out of the question, lol.
I wanted to teach music starting sometime around middle school. I was immediately discouraged by teachers/friends because of everyone's music experience in school. It turned me off of the idea for a few years until I was nearing the end of high school and had some of the best experiences with music with my school's program. I am now in my third year of undergrad for music education, and I just started my first round of clinical teaching at our university's lab school, teaching a first-grade class. I fell in love with teaching children and feel like I am making a positive impact on their lives, regardless of whether or not they continue on with music later on. It feels like my students love the hour I have with them each day and are always looking forward to it!
I never got that bike license, but from 2002-2006, I travelled over 26,000 miles up and over and across the US from the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean on a bike with my then boyfriend. I lived my dream of touring the mountains and deserts and small towns and ghost towns and back roads of the United States, all on a 1992 ElectraGlide FLH. I met people and saw things I could never have imagined as a kid wanting to go across the country. The best part of it all was that all of our trips were made in early June or Mid to late September. We missed the motorcycle/tourist seasons.

(sent on 8/8/21) if a musician or actor was outed for being ab*sive, would you still dedicate time to listening to their music/watching their acting? can an artist be separated from their art?

poetalunam’s Profile Photoleigh ;
Well over the years there have been many artists and actors who have been outed as doing some pretty horrible things such as being abusive to their partner or just being overall weirdos in the industry. And people still supported them or listened to their music / watched their shows and so on. Look at chris brown and how many times he has been in the news articles for being abusive to his partners and while he gets backlash and hate .... he still has fans who support and listen to his music and such.

If that particular person is able to do so. For example, I could still listen to Marilyn Manson and not wince or think anything about it while others may not be able to do that. I can separate those kinds of things. I just watched Se7en last week and obviously didn’t think about ol’ what’s his name. ☺️

Example: Let’s say you gave it all & yet it wasn’t enough, then WTF now? Where tf u gonna go from there? Don’t frickin’ start over again cause u know that’s dumb & a waste of time! Thoughts 💭?

You raise and interesting question that I suppose many people struggle with i.e. how do you set realistic goals? Since some of us have never been formally taught how to set goals, we tend to learn from experience what works and what doesn't. Said differently, you must learn to set "realistic goals." These goals should be based upon your interests, experience, education and support system (including mentors, financial resources).
Let's look at an example:
Musician: when I was young, I wanted to be a great guitarist, but I had a few obstacles to overcome: (a) Lessons: I studied guitar at an early age but my instructor was not a professional musician (mistake#1). (b) Experience: I played in local bands but we played by ear and mostly had no idea what we were playing (mistake#2). (c) Mentor: I had no mentors to guide me (mistake#3) (d) Music Degree: Yes I obtained one through persistence and a refusal to quit, but it's usefulness is questionable (e) Reality: at some point, life takes over and consumes you while obliterating your dreams and goals, if you allow it. This is probably the most discouraging aspect of what I am saying. Don’t quit, but be willing to negotiate with yourself to create reasonable goals for yourself.
My father gave me the best advice when he said: "son, play music for fun and because you love it." You see, being the best guitarist was not a realistic goal for me for reasons that I had little control over. Then add to that personal limitations, and you experience what you so aptly called a: "WTF” moment, where you wonder if all of your hard work was a gigantic waste of time, right?
These moments are life lessons and they occur to help us adjust our goals and the course that we must constantly navigate to reach our intended destination. My advice is to NEVER give up on those things (hobbies) that you love and are passionate about. Instead, learn to establish realistic goals based upon reasonable expectations along with your experience, education, talent, interest and financial resources.

I do not really have one till last year. Well, i love to analyze facts and searching, but also come up with ideas sometimes... Ima bad in history and anathomy, so no forensic med or archаeologist. Was dissapointed in architecture, coz it's boring. Too shy to be a good musician. Tried to turn my hobby into a money, but quickly burned out.
So my love is physics&geoinformatics, i really like to dig it in my imagination and hunt the real treasures. I'd love to be a scientist. Maybe also learn some chem. Or would be a street racing star - who knows...

Hosts who rent out the appartment you live in - where do you stay?

I have done everything. At friends, girlfriends, even the back of my van. I remember that night where I drank too much and needed my bed while the girl I was supposed to sleep at didn’t have enough. Last thing I remember was leaving the bar alone and when I woke up in the morning I was in my van with both back doors opened and my bicycle was on the curb. Rough hangover but in the end I made myself a room in it and went sleeping in different area of my town, had breakfast in new restos everyday. Since I needed a shower everyday I subscribed to a gym and begin to workout. Spent my summer like that and now I have 15 listings.
It all started when I got an overpriced apartment after making a lot of money thanks to facebook ads. My ads account eventually got shut down for running dating ads and I couldn’t afford my apartment anymore. I started by renting it on weekends to pay it and eventually renting it full time to gather money for a new business. I never thought airbnb would be it but after a while a good opportunity for a second listing came, then 3, then 6 now I got 15 and 8 get home owners approaching me to operate for them.
There's an Airbnb in SF that I rent out whenever I come to town. The owner is super nice, so accommodating, and it's for all intents and purposes her main living space. Not only that, if we have a car, we can park in her garage, in downtown San Francisco for $8 a night (no mark up to the price her building charges residents!!). After getting to know her we found out she has a boyfriend who also lives in SF and when she has guests she stays at his house. Works great for us, and we have a beautiful apartment to stay in downtown.
But mostly my other listings - I have multiple listings so I just move around between the houses when they are open, so technically there are personal belongings in all of them. I use the above options as reasons to rent them all out on weekends.
I have only been doing this short time but I now only allow check ins on friday for the whole unit to push for weekend bookings. I have a separate listing for my guest bedroom for Sunday-Thursday check ins. I live close enough to work that I walk and don't mind having a room mate those days. I am fully booked May and June so my tactic has been working.
I have a friend who rents his apartment in LA on AirBnB. He's a semi-pro musician. Tours a lot. Rents his place out while he's on tour. Moving to LA from NYC didn't work out as well as he'd hoped, so now he's effectively bicoastal, still hanging onto that LA apartment just in case something happens that will keep him in LA. His gigging schedule is too unpredictable for him to get a full-time subletter for his place in LA while he's away. Hosting smaller increments via AirBnB is more amenable to his lifestyle. I have a neighbor who holds a lease on three places -- a 3BR apartment, a studio apartment, and an art studio (the latter of which is not meant to be lived in).

#OnThisDay, 18 Shawwal, is the urs of Hazrat Ameer Khusrow. He was a Sufi musician, poet and scholar. He was an iconic figure in the cultural history of the Indian subcontinent. He is regarded as the "father of Qawwali" (a devotional music form of the Sufis in the Indian subcontinent), and introduced the ghazal style of song into India, both of which still exist widely in India and Pakistan. He was the most beloved murid of Hazrat Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliah. His shrine is located in Nizamuddin Dargah, New Delhi, India. May we all get his blessings.

☀️ Spending a whole day with a stranger, famous or not, would require some kind of structured activity.

The stranger blanked for a second, before chucking that totally-not-unsettling chuckle, and strumming the Lute. A dark cloud arised from his plucking-- and before anyone knew it-- was that...music?
Congrats! You can now hear the OST playing from the fourth wall! And the only catch is that in order to survive, you must follow the beat!!!!! How WonDeRfUUUUUUL--
Is Shadow wasn't affected, he should be able to tell that now the monsters were walking to the beat. The conductor himself actually as bobbing to the beat as well-- like a classic video game sprite.
