Random thoughts leading to a not-so random conclusion

If you can, open up a new tab and play this song in the background while reading this. It might make this read more enjoyable:

Me and my friends had a deep stoner conversation about the 5 senses the other day. We started talking about which sense would be the worst not to have. Everyone said sight. While not having any sight would definetely ruin my life and almost all my day to day activities, I think not having any hearing would DESTROY my life. I cant imagine living a life without music or living in utter silence.


I really like listening to classical music and movie background music when im high(reqruim for a dream is my favorite, it blows my mind). It just makes everything so peaceful, yet epic at the same time.


Beethoven is a fucking badass. His music has been listened to constantly for over 200 years. Which artists of today will be able to have that mark? Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, and only a few others probably. and EVERYONE has heard his music. You and I have been hearing it in schools, in movies, in other songs, in almost every aspect of life. Its not just one countries song either. Almost everyone in the world has known his name, for over 200 years. Your dad listened to him, grandpa, great grandpa, and great great grandpa too.


I think the cruelest joke ive ever seen life play was taking Beethoven’s hearing away. It was his entire life, man. He had his first public concert when he was 7 years old. But beethoven said “fuck you life” and became even more of a badass… most of his greatest work came after he lost his hearing. I think its because losing his hearing drove him absolutely insane. But in a good way. having only his own voice inside of his head made him look deeper inside himself. And what came out was beautiful and true.

Beethoven losing his hearing is truly inspiring. It’s like the music continues to play inside his mind and he “hears” it.

And that’s a very inappropriate joke that condescends his genius:

Louis Spohr was a pupil of Ludwig van Beethoven. Spohr was a very talented composer in his own right and is generally thought to be the first conductor to use a baton.

The following is a transcript of the last “knock knock” joke to be played on his mentor and former teacher, Ludwig van Beethoven. This dialogue took place in the early 1820s during one of Spohr’s final visits with his old friend.

Spohr: “Knock knock!”

Beethoven: . . .

Spohr: (louder) “Knock knock!”

Beethoven: . . .

Spohr: (even louder) “KNOCK KNOCK!”

Beethoven: . . .

@vizznou, yes this must be some shocking experience. To sense something for the first time.

When I was a kid, my biggest fear was blindness. But when I got older, I realized that I was always blind.
