Nobody ever built a statue to a music critic.

Really?

Ever hear of Bernard Shaw?

How could you not like Debussy's "La Mer"? It's majestic. It would be like not liking Victor Hugo (who also had a tremendous affinity for the sea)!

Hi -- Around 11:30 tonight, you said a great quote. Unfortunately, I can't remember it since I was in the car. It had to do with the "parents" of various arts. Science's parents are 'this', math's parents are 'this'... and Music's parents are the "undetermined" ones or something of the like. Would love to know what the quote was. It was while talking about Don Giovanni.
Love you guys, glad to be a sponsor <3
