Society unravels and you jest. I hope you're there next time to participate.

Being a big fan of Mozart, I also dabble into works of Tchaikovsky, and that's when the trouble starts. I cannot help myself. I then give Shostakovich a listen, and it's anarchy run amok. They should put warning labels on this stuff before it's too late. First, the mall unrest, next chaos in the 5-start restaurants & posh office buildings. We're doomed! ;-)

Funny at first... then too long. Then too much effete snobbery. Didn't convince me to actually think about your choices of music either.
