So yeah, maybe it'll be a good show like the one I saw.


I witnessed a crash at my local airshow about ten years ago too. Huge fireball, and the pilot wasn't able to get away in time either. There were three crashes in total that year, two of which were fatal. Not sure what went wrong.

It wasn't nice, no. I mean I was a little too young for it to really sink in like it did with all the adults there, but all the same... :(

I just ordered a keyboard to force myself to learn to play an instrument. Figured if I spend a month's worth of money on it I'll be more likely to stick with it. :lol:

I'm the king of procrastination when I don't have anything forcing me to do stuff. :facepalm: Initially I told myself I'd wait for one of the flatmates to move out so I could properly concentrate in a "blank" room. That happened 5 days ago. Since then I've used the keyboard twice. :lol: I'm still on page 5 or 6 of the learner's book. :lol: I also bought pencils and paper to start drawing again(which I used to do a lot as a child and haven't done at all since I was 14 or so)...and drew once. :lol:

I do quite enjoy the keyboard itself though(Yamaha E343, really positive surprise for the price tag!), I just have to force myself to actually...do stuff.

It helps to get lessons from a professional teacher who makes you feel guilty when you don't do your homework. :P

I never understood when someone "plays" the piano. Anyone who can read music and has fingers can play the piano. I have no musical talent and I even know a few compositions.

Although someone who can read music and has fingers should be able to find which keys to press when presented with sheet music, most people require a bunch of practice before they can play a complicated piece well and with "feeling", and the amount of practice needed to master new pieces goes down as one's experience grows. In my experience, a person is said to have musical talent if he is able to pick it up with relative ease compared to his peers or able to play with unexpected emotional depth.

It sounds like you're a natural. Or a robot.

My parents paid for one for me for a few years. I got so much better during that time.

I can imagine! I wish I had done more with music during high school. Our music teachers were actually absolutely fantastic(a retired opera singer and a former choir conductor), they were kind, enthusiastic, fun and it was possible to pretty much get private lessons for free occasionally. I should have started learning something back then. :lol: All I did was sing a couple solos in choir performances.

...I wish piano/keyboard lessons didn't start at about 20€/lesson...
