I think Han Na Chang will serve you well.  But first wait until Hannah Montana and Grand Theft Auto blow over (or up, pending your violence level)…

Look when she’s not playing, she’s almost looking bored.  As we all know, looking bored is a trademark of cool.

Who wears a red prom dress and then take out a blue mopping towel to wipe her most prized possession in front of hundreds and hundreds of people  Insane?  Crazy?  Stark raving mad?  I mean, is there so much sweat dripping down that she needs to wipe it dry?  She’s “not all there”–surely another sign of ultimate coolness.

It’s because SHE DOESN”T CARE!  Duh!  This girl can play.  And faster than anyone else.  Look how she’s flying through and half of the time she isn’t even looking at  her fingers or the cello!!!!  Which hand do you think she has more control of?  The right that has to hold the bow and make it jump non-stop, or the left that has to press the strings for a raging millisecond before moving on?  Is she skipping lunch or something?  And what the hell is she smirking about?  She’s almost mocking them.  She practically beats on her cello and I’m surprised that she hasn’t broken all of them that she’s played on.

So much hope, energy, and individualism.  By the way, this is NOT how Haydn is usually played, and he’s probably turned over a few times in his grave, but not even a dead man can tell her what to do.

When you are between 12-18 years old do not listen to your stupid teachers who say you should do art this way or that way because they are stupid and old and pathetic and they JUST GIVE STUPID ARBITRARY RULES.

Do you know what Ph.D. theses are?  They are about finding new stuff, things that nobody has known before.  If everyone followed rules, and just regurgitated like trolls, there’d be no doctorates of philosophy given out–EVER.

ADULTS ARE HYPOCRITES–THEY TELL YOU TO FOLLOW THEIR RULES AND THEN THEY TELL YOU THAT YOU’RE A GENIUS IF YOU COULD BREAK THEIR RULES WHILE FOLLOWING THEIR RULES.  Go figure.

Yea, her mouth is really weird.  When you’re playing with that intensity your mouth will pucker too.  Forget about the eyes being the “window into someone’s soul.”  When you notice AN ADULT SPEAKING TO YOU WITH A HAND OVER THEIR MOUTH IT’S BECAUSE THEY DON”T WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE THINKING ABOUT, AND WHATEVER IT IS, IT’S USUALLY SOMETHING THAT THEY ARE CONFUSED ABOUT HOW TO DOPE YOU!!!!

Be bored.  be insane.  Be fun.  Be yourself.  Be a genius.  Otherwise why be.  You might even want to hurl that cello of yours off the stage and hit that very stupid girl or boy.  Text me, let me know how bad the broken nose was.
