You're right. We should also mourn for those innocents our soldiers constantly go over and slaughter without asking questions, too. I like you, I think we're on the same page!

Wait, what do you mean we shouldn't mourn their deaths just because they're not in America?

Fuck America. Fuck the military. Fuck you. Fuck the president. Fuck congress. Fuck it all. If I could, I'd be gone from this shithole, schizo-ideology-run country tomorrow, or sooner.

If money's an issue I'll pay for you to leave if you promise to renounce your US citizenship. 100% real.

Sorry man, it's a felony. The government, for whatever reason, WANTS me to stay here, and even demands it, or else I get to contribute to their massive, unnecessary prison numbers. And the funniest part is, they don't want felons (no matter how minor!) to join the military. You'd think they'd be dying to have me on the front lines, but...nope!

It's not a felony to leave the US. What are you talking about? Oh I get it. YOU'RE a felon that's been ordered to stay in the US? Judging by your post I can see why no one wants you in the military. You're a pathetic faggot with extremely weak character. It's not easy to get in the US military. They weed pieces of shit like you out. The funny thing is you just don't understand how the military works. You only know the Huffington Post version. Well, hey don't want bullet sponges on the "front lines." There are no front lines by the way. You really don't get how this a works, do you? No worries. You don't have to worry about "listing" in the military. No, they want actual dedicated professionals--not cannon fodder.

You play an awesome victim though. You commit a felony and YOU are the victim of the big MEAN government who wants to keep you here or be mean and make you pay for your crime with the other criminals unfairly paying for their crimes.The horror!

Damn, son, you are the most delusional edgiest edger I've ever seen! Everything is someone else's fault. Not yours. It sure is convenient that mean ol' America is the cause of your problems or else you might have to *eek* take responsibility for your actions.

Thanks for giving me a business idea though. A business that facilitates the self exile of wastes of space in America such as yourself and convinces them to 1)sterilize themselves, and 2) leave the country and renounce their citizenship's all for the sake of evil corporate profits. Excellent!

Also, yes, I am a felon. I didn't say it's a felony to leave. The question was if it was a money problem - I simply replied by saying no, it is a felony problem.

Get outta here. I'm not trying to be edgy. I'm trying to say fuck America.

ISIS is doing nothing more than the US military - killing innocents in the name of a god and their own ideas of "freedom". I bet the innocent civilians in the Middle East are just as uproarious as you are. Culture is bullshit. =]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]

Sure did get your panties in a bunch.

You lose.

I haven't blamed a single thing on anyone. I just don't give a fuck about the military nor the country. I'm doing just fine. I just really have a strong dislike for where I live. I'm doing just fine, honestly. I make a comfortable living and I pretty much just do whatever.

it's definitely not minor, and it's an insult to the families of the victims to call it that. But, federal law on gay marriage directly affected way more people and was a much happier occasion. Not to mention the white house probably expected something to happen and made arrangements to celebrate a positive ruling. These deaths were not something they saw coming, so it's fair that the flag wasn't lowered as quickly as the rainbow lights were turned on.

Yeah, I agree with everything you said.

I didn't say one is better than the other, all I said is that from an instrumentalist's perspective, one is clearly more essential than the other.

IMO, by the end it comes down to the work they composed. Bach wrote a lot more solo stuff, Mozart wrote a lot of operas. It doesn't make Bach's St. John's Passion any worse, nor does it undermine Mozart's sonatas, but from the perspective of a learner who is trying to explore music, I think Bach's works allow you to take a journey that leads you to getting intimately familiar with your instrument and music in general.

Bach's music, imo, tries to rigorously explore how music itself works, while Mozart's work was about what you can do with music.

Disclaimer, I did grow up playing the cello and I spent years practicing Bach's cello suites. I discovered what music means to me while playing bach. Mozart, on the other hand, never wrote anything for the solo cello. I will not even pretend that I'm not biased.

But even more importantly, the point of my initial post was to point out something that I've noticed. Music professors seem to look at bach with a different type of respect (almost with reverence) than the way they look at bach.

Just my 2 cents.

To balance our perspectives, I'm a trained vocalist and have sung much more rep as a soloist from the classical and romantic periods than I have Baroque or Renaissance, although I am part of a Bach Cantata Chamber group. I adore both composers' works immensely.

I'm pretty sure that every single music professor in my university would unanimously agree that Bach's music is the most essential, fundamental music that every instrument-playing student should study and get intimately familiar with.

Mozart isn't considered equally important.
#78 - suburbansoldier (07/14/2015) [-]
I'm sure many a scholar and academic would say so, but to say that one composer is objectively BETTER than the other is too hard a conclusion to draw. Yes, Bach's keyboard and organ works were and still are quintessential to the keyboard repertoire today. Yes, Bach's work with fugue is still hallowed as the most important collection of works in counterpoint ever penned. Those are highly agreeable conclusions. However, Mozart's work with opera is still highly regarded as some of the best to have come out of the classical period. Mozart's improvisations and theme and variation works are still played in packed concert halls throughout the world. They were two incredible minds writing two very different times and worlds.
