Name: Wouldn't you like to know
Penname: Violingeek, (also known as Random Person #27, Fritz, Corinne)
Place of residence: a dingy grad student office in the middle of a basement dungeon that they call a music building.
I am a grad student at the University of ...wait, you know, you almost had me there (but I'm still not gonna tell you!) studying violin performance and music theory. I like to read, write, play violin (duh), analyze music, swim, ballroom dance, watch archery and figure skating, play the sims, compose, and listen to just about anything by a Russian composer. If you're interested, my research interests include the analysis of early music, film music analysis and the role it plays in the creation of meaning, various aspects of Schenkerian analysis (kudos to any of you who actually know what that means. Double kudos if you like it too!), and the interaction of melodic shapes in different musical spaces.
Favorite books include: Harry Potter (all of them), Elantris, anything by Tamora Pierce (although some are better than others), Guns Germs and Steel by Jarod Diamond, Nectar in a Sieve, Elantris, Wicked, Son of a Witch, some Shakespeare, The Cartoon History of the Universe...There must be more, but I can't think of them right now.

"I'm telling you, Teal'c, if we don't find a way out of this soon, I'm going to lose it. 'Lose it'. It means go crazy. Nuts. Insane. Bonzo. No longer in possession of one's faculties. Three fries short of a happy meal. Wacko!!"-Jack O'niell, "Window of Opportunity"
"The heroes of all time have gone before us. The labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. Where we had thought to travel outward, we will come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we will be with all the world."-Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces
"This guy's walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can't get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, 'Hey you. Can you help me out?' The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, 'Father, I'm down in this hole can you help me out?' The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by, 'Hey, Joe, it's me can you help me out?' And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, 'Are you stupid? Now we're both down here.' The friend says, 'Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out.'"-Leo McGarry, The West Wing
