… and put my music out there to be bought by people who actually want to hear it to the point of parting with money for the privilege, I’m eventually going to have to go through this blog beforehand and cull the posts where I sound pissier than usual.

It’s easier to say certain softer things in music than words. If I try too hard to come across as all puppies-and-rainbows, there’s a strong chance that I’ll start blowing up pianos onstage to compensate.
