2: 2018-07-02: The message of country music is “It's alright to be little bitty.” The aspirations of any song character are to hold a steady job, own a truck and raise a family. No one quests for a “higher love“. No one cares to leave the perfect small town where they grew up.

49: 2012-07-09: The ultimate test of a piece of music is whether an untrained listener feels compelled to listen to it over and over.
50: 2012-06-29: @xtinewu You're protesting the new Walmart in Chinatown. It's just a little bitty Walmart, but it's the principle. Music! Banners! Action!

52: 2012-06-27: Some street musicians you want to pay to STOP playing, like this guy with the detached leg. (Cleveland, right now)

55: 2012-05-09: There is no love without music, but music alone cannot sustain love. There also has to be a common mission.
56: 2012-04-27: A great song isn't just about the music but about the words and what they mean. This is where most musicians are clueless.

59: 2012-04-14: The nice thing about not knowing a word of Japanese is I don't have to listen to any inane banter. It's all just music to me.
60: 2012-04-12: RT @Kurt_Vonnegut: Virtually every writer I know would rather be a musician.
61: 2012-04-03: Writing music can be an exercise in apophenia. You listen to the noises in your head, pull out imaginary patterns and soon you have a song.
62: 2012-03-27: Things I know nothing about (proudly): sports, fashion, wine, cuisine, TV shows, contemporary music, celebrity gossip.

64: 2012-03-20: Music is a medium for a message.

70: 2012-03-03: All that matters in music is the sound coming into your ears.
71: 2012-03-03: Good music, comedy and movies are so rare that they only seem to come from past decades.
72: 2012-03-03: The first purpose of music is to get people to listen. If you can't do that, nothing else you do matters.
73: 2012-02-29: Music/movie award shows would be far more interesting if they had any track record of predicting future classics. Better a roulette wheel!
74: 2012-02-24: Music is a stimulation of the nervous system, like drugs. You wouldn't expect it to give your life meaning any more than drugs do.
75: 2012-02-24: Music is a medium for a message, like the printed word. It has no meaning apart from the purpose you use it for.
76: 2012-02-24: @shimols On the contrary, music IS pointless. See next tweet.

81: 2012-02-05: Coldplay is one bright light in the dark abyss of 21st Century music.
82: 2012-02-04: Music is a psychology experiment: How do you tickle the neurons of the listener in such a way as to bring them back for more?
83: 2012-02-01: A stock bubble is a game of musical chairs where a lot of people money while the music is playing. When the music stops, everyone loses.
84: 2012-01-24: You can't unsee a bad music video of a good song. It poisons you with explicitness.
85: 2012-01-23: Popular music is the soundtrack of people's lives.
86: 2012-01-23: Music isn't just tinkling on the keyboard to find something good. It is repeating and emphasizing those good things once you find them.
87: 2012-01-23: Every piece of music is a balance of repetition and novelty. Too much repetition is boring. Too much novelty is chaos.
88: 2012-01-20: Esse quam videri ("To be, rather than to seem") —Motto of the Berklee College of Music

93: 2011-12-29: No amount of musical training can teach you to write an interesting song everyone is compelled to listen to.
94: 2011-12-26: The essence of music is people making noise and figuring out what sounds good.
95: 2011-12-25: The greatest joy of Christmas is that it means the Christmas music is going to stop.
96: 2011-12-17: These two orange pills are the perfect cure for all forms of Christmas music, reducing symptoms by 80%!
97: 2011-12-16: Music is the subcarrier of language. Before an infant knows any words, he learns the song of his parents speaking.
98: 2011-12-13: Music is a software problem. The singer gets all the glory, but the real credit should go to the programmer who wrote the notes and words.
99: 2011-12-13: Never trust a country music singer who tells you how faithful he's going to be. Them good 'ole boys got a poor track record.
100: 2011-12-12: The trouble with current music, in any era, is it's selected mainly by young people, whose tastes favor the loud, sappy or obnoxious.
101: 2011-12-12: [OTOH:] Current music has always been mostly crap. Time just distills the good stuff for us, and that's what we remember.
102: 2011-12-12: Singers today are venerated today for their tabloid tribulations, not their music.
103: 2011-12-12: The 2nd half of the 20th Century was the Golden Era of popular music. Post-Y2K—the Dark Ages!
104: 2011-11-28: Music is not an end but a means.
105: 2011-11-20: "Practice makes perfect" isn't the whole story. Plenty of people practice a musical instrument without improving. What are they missing?
106: 2011-11-11: Has anyone scientifically studied the relationship of body fat ratio to ambient country music? Correlation or causation?
107: 2011-11-06: Has the music died? Is there even one song released in the past four years that they'll still be playing 20 years from now? Name it!
108: 2011-11-02: So many are struggling to succeed in movies and music. Their main enemy is their inability to see their own work as others do.
109: 2011-10-29: What defines Rock was not so much a change in music but a willingness to embrace irony and subversion.
110: 2011-10-29: The Beatles more or less invented musical irony. Before them, popular songs mainly expressed trite, conventional emotions.
111: 2011-10-23: Most great works of art (from photos to music to movies) contain some form of irony—that is, the opposite of what is expected.
112: 2011-10-23: "Musician" does not mean "creative". It only means you can play the notes. Creative is writing the notes.
113: 2011-10-23: Even Top 40 listeners don't really want new music. They're buying a familiar product—Britney or Beyonce—and don't care what they produce.
114: 2011-10-23: Music is the ultimate comfort food. No one really wants anything new. They want the old and comfortable.
115: 2011-10-23: The sad thing about music today is you have tour to make money. Recording in the studio won't do it. New songs won't do it.
116: 2011-10-23: Why must the music die?
117: 2011-10-23: A mystery of music: Why are so many bands One-Hit Wonders? One hit ought to give you resources to make more, but inspiration seems to die.
118: 2011-10-23: The main art of music is creating new songs, not re-performing old ones.
119: 2011-10-23: Of all the big names in Rock, how many have produced great new music all their lives? (vs playing the old stuff whenever they need $$)
120: 2011-10-15: Affirming the age-old connection between music and weaponry.
121: 2011-10-05: RT @xtinewu: The most important thing- Tell your own truth in everything you do. #film #music #art #life
122: 2011-09-17: In music, as in life, most are mere performers, repeating the work of others. Few are composers and fewer still are good at it.
123: 2011-07-09: If some cowboy tells you he'll "love you forever" in a country music song, BUYER BEWARE! Them good ol' boys got a pretty bad track record.
124: 2011-07-07: Musicians tend to breed with other musicians, scientists with other scientists. Over time, this will yield many distinct human sub-species.
125: 2011-07-04: @xtinewu "Set up my new bada$$ shredder. Muahahaha!" <== Can't let that sheet music fall into enemy hands! <eyes shifting right to left>
126: 2011-06-30: Never underestimate the ability of music to encourage foolish lifestyle choices.
127: 2011-06-27: Music is language without the meaning, conveying only the emotional component of what is being said.
128: 2011-06-27: Before an infant knows words, he hears the music of his parents' speech. His innate musical sense drives him to replicate these patterns.
129: 2011-06-27: Music evolved as a system of language learning. Humans basically sing to each other when they speak.
130: 2011-06-25: RT @sbellelauren: as an AEA member & musical theatre actress i change my mind about gay marriage there is no way i can afford all these ...
131: 2011-06-25: The secret of composing good music is recognizing the point where authentic emotion turns saccharin.
132: 2011-06-12: It is easy to accurately evaluate a comedian or musician while sitting in the audience, much harder if you are that performer.
133: 2011-05-12: Look at all the past stars of pop music? How many are still producing? Paul Simon. That's it! The others are merely resting on their past.
134: 2011-04-11: Nearly every content business—from newspapers to music to porn peddlers—has been gutted by the Internet.
135: 2011-04-07: RT @vacca23: @BadDalaiLama EVERYTHING is funny with Benny Hill music playing behind it.
136: 2011-03-30: On My Bucket List: Become a country music mega-star has-been, playing casinos across the country to pay off my IRS debt.
137: 2011-03-20: Music without words is a refined product, like high fructose corn syrup. It gives us all the emotions of language without any content.
138: 2011-03-20: Music is the subcarrier of language, essential to its transfer. Before a baby knows any words he knows the music of them
139: 2011-03-20: It's hard to have meaningful thoughts about your own problems when music is programming your thoughts for you.
140: 2011-03-20: At what point is the "enjoyment" of music just an escape from other things?
141: 2011-03-20: RT @shwaywhat: @BadDalaiLama but there are symphonies written that have great meaning. If you can't hear emotions and feelings in music ...
142: 2011-03-20: .@MotherCatt "Appreciation of music, art, serenity, food should not be sought?" <== Correct! They are meaningless in isolation from life.
143: 2011-03-18: The worst thing about Hawaii is the Hawaiian music piped in EVERYWHERE. Cloying, vapid, saccharine—worse than country!
144: 2011-03-15: Nothing touches the heart like country music. It's like triple coronary by-pass surgery with a dull scalpel.
145: 2011-02-22: Being a surviving Beatle means you can never go anywhere without hearing your own songs, usually turned into hideous elevator music.
146: 2011-02-05: On the set of my upcoming music video, "Weekend Pirate". Argggh!
147: 2011-02-04: On My Bucket List: Dedicate my life to science... or medicine, or music, or animals, or God, or the Amazon rainforest... or SOMETHING!
148: 2011-02-01: The human brain is a holistic processing system, seeking higher-level patterns in the data. Where computers see bytes, we hear music.
149: 2011-01-24: ...All my songs need is a singer, an arranger, a band, music... I can't sing well myself, but I'm doing my best, just to demo the song.
150: 2011-01-21: RT @babilano: @BadDalaiLama If you drank some of this you would agree that music is more than just tunes & lyrics: http://en.wikipedia.o ...
151: 2011-01-20: The main distraction of music is... the music! What really matters is the words and tune. The rest of the music is secondary.
152: 2011-01-12: Music is all around us, in everything we say and do. That's different, however, than pumping the same songs into your ears, over and over.
153: 2011-01-12: .@astrangersashes "Music is a muse. It makes you think, it inspires, it helps you create..." <== Indeed, but not if pumped in continuously.
154: 2011-01-12: If you want to understand music, the first thing to do is throw away your iPod and music collection. That's merely music addiction.
155: 2011-01-12: Music has a dangerous hold on the nervous system. Instead of thinking real thoughts, you have an iPod pumping drugs into your brain.
156: 2011-01-07: The only thing about music that has to be "real" is the human voice. Everything else can be computer generated.
157: 2011-01-07: How does hearing a song "live", with cheering fans and poor acoustics, make it better? That's a religious experience, not a musical one.
158: 2011-01-07: Most of music culture is irrelevant. All that matters is the words and sounds that come into your ears and what you remember of them.
159: 2011-01-07: When musicians only play other people's music, they are no better than biological recording devices. What a waste of resources!
160: 2011-01-06: The best thing Spinal Tap could have done is kept making music. All music starts out as parody, but then the magic kicks in and its real!
161: 2011-01-06: Music... crack cocaine for the ears!
162: 2010-12-25: I'm in Jerusalem, right? It is supposed to be controlled by the Jews. SO WHY CAN'T THEY STOP THE DAMN CHRISTMAS MUSIC?!?!
163: 2010-12-18: When you reduce TV, radio, news, websurfing and music to a minimum, you regain your brain and can begin to think again.
164: 2010-12-15: Music isn't just music. It's our worldwide religion! More people can sing a Beatles tune than any hymn.
165: 2010-12-15: Music is the subcarrier of language. Before an infant knows any words, he learns the song of his language.
166: 2010-12-13: Music is a software problem. The singer gets all the glory, but the real credit should go to the programmer who wrote the notes and words.
167: 2010-12-13: Never trust a country music singer who tells you how faithful he's going to be. Them good 'ole boys got a poor track record.
168: 2010-12-12: Whenever a member of a legacy rock group gets a degree in astrophysics, it makes me sad. They had so much more impact with their music.
169: 2010-11-28: Music, television, web surfing, shopping, sports, political debate... All are a mask for the fact that you haven't done a damn thing.
170: 2010-11-26: The most hideous musical form is the "cover", where one singer repeats the famous song of another. It only proves their bankrupt creativity.
171: 2010-11-26: “Music is a safe kind of high." Jimi Hendrix via @astrangersashes — It can still be an addiction drawing you from more productive things.
172: 2010-11-17: Those who can't go to sleep without music or television are afraid of their own thoughts.
173: 2010-11-10: Music can be a powerful addictive drug—a brain parasite—occupying the mind and preventing it from doing more useful things.
174: 2010-11-10: Language - Meaning = Music
175: 2010-11-10: Music is the subcarrier of language. Infants instinctively follow the tones and rhythms of words, only later learning their meaning.
176: 2010-11-10: Classical music and jazz are for people who prefer their music devoid of meaning.
177: 2010-11-02: When you become a professional musician, the first thing you lose is your hearing.
178: KilroyCafe: 2010-12-02: The greatest challenge of sleeping in airports is blocking out the Christmas music. Earplugs don't work. Jingle Bell Rock. Arrrrggg!

180: KilroyCafe: 2010-09-03: Classical music was designed for the wealthy to give them the illusion of culture without any meaning.

182: KilroyCafe: 2010-08-27: Elvis supposedly changed music, but he wrote none of his own songs, so didn't the writers actually change music? Wasn't Elvis a fraud?
183: KilroyCafe: 2010-05-12: Taste — be it for food, fashion, music or sex — is always an illusion. It is the promise of something more than what you actually get.
184: KilroyCafe: 2010-04-30: That someone can play an instrument does not imply they know anything about music. It only means they can follow someones else's notes.
185: KilroyCafe: 2010-03-07: When you dedicate your life to a single medium (music, photography, writing, etc), you end up with fine technical skills and nothing to say.
