“They started a new family. I now have half brothers that are Maori.

“Yet, some Maori tell me I should be thankful Maori let me live in their country and that I should be paying Maori rent, and that NZ belongs to Maori.

Apparently, my half-brothers should own my drinking water, too, because their skin is a little browner than mine.

‘Mohammedans Target Music’

“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche

“The sheer ubiquity and variety of music found throughout the globe – Mexican mariachi, New Orleans jazz, Navajo night chants, Peruvian panpipes, Indian raga, Seattle grunge – suggests…that it is an innate part of humans, woven into the fabric of our very being.
