Recent blogger Johnny P. Johnny says, "Simon and Garfunkel are really the same person!!!"

Life is meant to be inspired by various creators of the past, present, and presumably the future. I only worry about claiming that the future is going to actually be any sort of inspiring while taking into perspective the current downfall of creativity and abstract thinking. For example, let's begin with music, most people and middle-aged Kamikaze pilots* like music right? I have also heard that plants love a good Rumba beat. Let's begin now: Johann Sebastian Bach, followed by Mozart,  The Dixieland Jass band, Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, The Beatles. As you can see, the more that time goes on the more musical barricades we break down. However these barricades weren't actually barricades, but were, in fact, intellectual stimuli such as literature and philosophy. Clearly when rock bounced it's way into the ears of citizens who wanted nothing more than to sit at home and listen to "Avenger" until 8 o' clock, making them "the rowdiest bunch of hooligans on the block." (That would, of course, be if rock had not hit it's high point in this decade.) Let's keep moving along the timeline of music. We find ourselves trailing the Beatles with Earth, Wind, and fire, as you can see, now it starts to get a lot more slanted on our speedy incline to our imminent demise. That demise being a world without the words, "Yes", "-ish" or "Batmobile." It may or may not be more frightening than Lucky the paranoid leprechaun actually being real. Ok, so after Earth, wind, fire, water, heart all combined and created the most eco-friendly superhero, we see the emergence of Justin Bieber. Case and point. And I am now framing that point and submitting it for a patent, no ideas. Stop it. Just No.

*I have very reliable sources in which tell me they especially prefer "Bridge over troubled water"  by Simon and his more famously named counterpart Garfunkel that was inexplicably released 25 years after their beautiful, best-ever written eulogy that caused tears. We would have published it all over America, but after it being translated it looked oddly like "November Rain" by Guns n' Roses, so we left it alone.

If you have not already, I would highly recommend that you sign up for Music 101 (preferably with Professor Hinckley) come this fall. It is quite delicious. And, after reading this particular post, I believe you will find it quite delicious as well.
