Eureka! Someone Else Has Found It!

Unquestionably, one major problem that composers face every day is how to wax poetic. No one, to the best of my knowledge, has written such a formula down. In my time, I’ve read numerous harmony and counterpoint books, many historical, theoretical and musicological essays and texts, searching for the answer to this perplexing riddle. And not one, ever, has been able to offer up an answer. Until now.

Savage lockstep rhythms alternate with evocative suspensions of time that allow individual voices to wax poetic.

How simple! How elegant!

Please, Mark Stryker, write a manual for us lowly and non-poetic composers. Enrich our music with answers to the ultimate musical mysteries.

Huh. Is that *the* way, or just *a* way?

'Cause I think liberal application of bourbon to the affected area is the best way to wax whatever that word was.

Ah, to wax poetic...the basis of the neocultural paradigm of reality to deconstruct sexism in the written word.

LOL @ Micheal Foucault.

Ahh, if I had a nickel for every time I typed that...

I would like to go on record as pro-liberal-application-of-bourbon.
