One pianist recounted a friend saying hearing this piece made him feel an overwhelming urge to commit suicide - it feels like depression captured musically (though there's a bit of that in most Rach). I actually slightly prefer Idil Biret's version, but she takes the middle section at a slower speed than most, and Ashkenazy's is an easier introduction (better sound quality too). To me though Biret's tempo, while less pretty and immediately impressive, captures the discomfort of depression a lot better - the agony of sitting with shitty feeling after shitty feeling as each stretches on interminably, the periods of emptiness as you wait for the next discordant crash while the last reverberates around you. Agitation (speed) is easy; sitting with the discomfort is much tougher. Broken flow - ugly but truthful.

This is a very nice recording though. Also I think my preference is subjective bullshit - probably just partial to Biret cos I heard her first.

Silently, I wish to sail into your port, I am your sailor
Quietly, I drop my weight into your sea, I drop my anchor
I sway in your waves, I sing in your sleep
I stay till I'm in your life

I realize now you're not to be blamed my love
You didn't choose your name my love
You never crossed the seven seas
I realize now you're not to be blamed my love
You didn't choose your name my love
You never crossed the seven seas

Oh, sweet creature
I know exactly how you feel
Your clock is ticking, tick tack tick tack
Your heart is beating tum tum tum tum tum

Silently, I wish to sail into your port, I am your sailor
Quietly, I drop my weight into your sea, I drop my anchor

I realize now you're not to be blamed at all
You didn't choose your name my love
You die a little in my arm
I realize now you're not to be blamed at all
You didn't choose your name my love
We never crossed the seven seas
I realize now you die a little in my arm
Before you even taste my love
We never crossed the seven seas
I realize now you re not to be blamed at all
You didn't choose your name my love
You die a little in my arm
I realize now

My avatar is just being gray and snowy

If you have questions about being rich in norway you'd have to ask someone else. If you think everyone in norway is rich as fuck, well I guess you've just been presented with the info that everyone else has, propaganda or what not. There's plenty poor people in norway, who struggle to get by. There's this idea the systems norway has is so good it provides for everyone and helps everyone. This is not the case. You can be fucked over in norway if you're born into a middle class or lower family + being ill or have other disadvantage. Heck, if you have no address in norway for 2 years you're registered as moved out of the country even if you are living on the street. So, homeless people of 2 years are not registered as citizens, giving way to better statistics as in unemployment rate etc

Norway is not a paradise, it's a parasite just like everywhere else

hope you are doing fine if it's that bad, are you?
anyways (not that i'm thinking of doing this) but how likely is it to go there and find a job if you are not graduated in engineering or some hi-tech thingy? cuz i can see myself doing that almost anywhere except for norway

i keep dreaming about having a house like this one. show is in netflix there's a full episode for norwegian architecture stunts.


just sayin, let me stay on topic

ofc the 2nd track wasn't as good, nothing is ever better than drama!

the clown is honkler. he pops up to alert you when honk is occuring so that you know you have entered the clown world. honk is the manifestation of any of the multitudinous absurdities therein

yes i am still a powerful witch so you'd better stop asking questions or i'll glamour you into servitude. minuend oversees my minions and will exact discipline from you at any cost
