A music meme: how apropos. I (too) don’t normally pass these on, but this one is quite funny/poignant and, well, musical.
[Disclaimer: I skipped classical. “Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 2 No. 2: I. Allegro vivace” is hard to divine by name and it was quite literally every other song.]

Thoughts: What is it with Hendrix? I like him a lot, but he certainly doesn’t dominate my collection – I would like to think my parents think of me as a good son – My love is no secret – Apparently I’m a coward – Hendrix agrees that getting to bed soon would be good for me.
