That’s a *&^ Idea

Tonight was the first night of actual classes for my MM adventure. I think I’m going to start a list of things that profs at Cal State are allowed to say, that I would love to say in my classes, but never could. First on the list, the prof for Advanced Composition, talking about what made Beethoven such a compelling melody writer.

Play the first 4 notes of the 5th Symphony.

“Your hear that, nobody’s waiting around for the musical idea to show up. That’s a f’ing musical idea!”

    I don’t want to give too much away, in case he does a google search for his name and comes across this post, but my answer starts with a “Y” and ends with “es, he is an absolute nutter.”

    HEEEEY, DR. DEGRAFFENREID!!!

    Oh, hey, I meant to ask you, can I have all of your papers and other work from this class, so that I don’t have to shed one single ounce of attention to ace this stupid course?

    Cool? Yeah?
