Re: Making some noise on quieting

The tragedy of this is that people are unable to
entertain themselves with their own abilities and
conversational skills. I guess everybody has
empty space between their ears, and it has to
be filled constantly with recorded sounds.
As a musician, during my student days I was
invited to quite a few parties and asked to bring
my instruments (fiddle & mandolin). I never used
amplifiers. There would always be other musicians
present who knew some of my material or whose
material I could follow improvisationally.
Others were asked to bring food & beverages, but
I was always exempted from this obiligation because
I brought live music.
What a great tradition. Too bad it died. Now the
typical college party is a giant sound system or a
loud rock band and a keg of beer.
