I see your taste in men runs right along your taste in music.

I looked at her other pictures. I retract that.

How about
Litha Efthymiou?

I have her twin sister as a friend on myspace.

I also have this one super hot Slovakian girl on myspace whose uncle (or was it grandpa? i forgot) was a composer. She linked me to his music, and I listened to some of it, though I couldn't understand what the titles meant. On her profile's music player, she has doom metal, Penderecki, and is a fan of Schnittke, Mahler, and Prokofiev. Of course, you just don't meet people like this in real life.

Now... if she were a composer, I'd have her picture in this thread!  8)

For a second, I thought that comment was directed at Saul, which made me laugh.

Saul I would have voted for you myself, you are easily the best looking of the bunch.  I looked at all the composers portraits in Wikipedia and they are an ugly looking bunch, the least offensive-looking IMHO was Edvard Grieg.



Thank you Teresa!

I don't know: I've dated a couple of girls like that in the past. :)

Sure you can.  Just hop an airplane and visit her; sounds like she'd love to get together with you.  Would be an excellent adventure.

Yeah... hundreds of dollars in debt later...

of course, the only girl that wants me to get on a plane and visit her is this boring girl from Columbia. I hate to say it like this, but she's kinda like half the reason I stay offline for Facebook chat.  :-X

Wouldn't it be worth the debt? Life is for living.

It would be worth the debt the week or so I'd be there. After that, no...
(of course, this is all theoretical anyways- not like she invited me to her country, nor would I expect anything wild like that)

The only other country I'll be going to anytime soon will be Japan, sometime next year, if I'm able to work at this job I'm trying to get long enough to where $2000 doesn't hurt me too much financially.

I once met a girl online who likes Mahler, Bach, Stockhausen, and S&M, among other things. After six months, she flew TO ME in Los Angeles (she was in China) and we had two weeks together. I won't say any more than this before it gets too hot for this forum, but you do meet all kinds of people in real life. There are billions of people so there are endless possibilities. You just have to let yourself go sometimes.  ;D

What is Music? How do you define it? Music is a calm moonlit night, the rustle of leaves in Summer. Music is the far off peal of bells at dusk! Music comes straight from the heart and talks only to the heart: it is Love!  --- Rachmaninoff

I have no interest in men whatsoever --- but they somehow look good to me.  :)

Styles change; but Bizet needs a makeover and Rachmaninov looks like a vampire.
