Music, Movies, and Books

There are good and bad examples of all types of art. I guess that somebody had to do it well at some point for it to exist at all.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am willing to teach anything I know about English, literature, philosophy, science, and history. I play guitar and make electronic music, and would love to share what I know about that, too.

I love learning and believe that we can learn anything.
