Hello! I am Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. I know what you're thinking- "how are you alive? Aren't you supposed to be dead?" Well, as you can see, I am not dead- how peculiar! I have some time, so we can certainly engage in conversation. You may ask me anything you wish to know about me, and I will answer to the best of my boundless ability! ♪~~~~~~ STATUS: Life as usual. MOOD: Tired. (RP/Ask account for W. A. Mozart. I rp with anyone. This blog can sometimes be NSFW. Tracking tag: musikistleben)
Here’s a little introduction of the new composer socks from Brooke!:
"Fun fact about me: I’m an accomplished classical pianist. I started taking lessons when I was 8 years old and as a reward from my teacher for practicing every day, I was able to pick out a prize from the special closet. Early on, I decided I would collect "statues" of my favorite composers. Over 20+ years later, I’ve still got them tucked in my piano bench.
Meet my little friends, Haydn, Mozart, Bach, & Beethoven:
I recently discovered these incredible Composer Series socks, which are designs of the same awesome foursome I had collected back in the day. Another fun fact: I like to wear the Bach socks while playing Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. Also, I’m a nerd.
In any case, the detail in these socks are so amazing:
As a film, it is very good, it deserves every bit of praise, I’m also grateful that it has introduced many people to my music and continues to do so. However, it does give a false image of me, but I will ignore that for the sake of this anniversary.
//totally watching it on the 30th anniversary. a fellow mozartian arranged a “watch party” for september 6th which i thought was the actual date of the anniversary, turns out it isn’t (i checked, thank you very much for letting me know), so i’ll be able to actually do a stream.
you heard that right, i’m streaming amadeus again.
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.
//The Internet has always been a place to communicate and express ideas. Cable companies want to destroy that free and open Internet and only give this right of expression to the few that can pay extra fees for it.
Is this fair? Is this right?
What kind of government would allow this?
It’s time to contact US Senators and tell them to support restoration of Net Neutrality rules. Sign this petition and send comments expressing why Net Neutrality is important. Every signature, every comment, every call counts. If you’re not in the US, sign this international petition here.
