WHY would you even think of that? Is it for a project for which you're getting academic credit, or for your own (bizarre, yet facinating) entertainment?

eerily silent, but music blasting. blasting atypical things, too. bluegrass and such.
She's going to think you're a serial killer. I think the Sherlock Holmes thing is going to help her arrive at that decision. I give her three more days...IF she's strong-willed.

it has nothing to do with academic credit whatsoever. it's completly for my own bizarre entertainment. i'm oddly fascinated by the importance and occurances of music (whether it be holmes actually playing the violin, or mentioning there's some sort of concert he's attending and dragging watson along with him). not fascinated enough to spend 50 bucks at amazon.com for a 1st edition copy of what i assume to be the out of print "sherlock holmes and music" written by one mr. guy warrack. from what i've read (and i've read quite a bit now ) that book is pretty much the bible on the subject.

i'm sort of oddly fascinated by the role music plays in the show house...and since the character is loosley based on holmes, it stems from that. i suppose i'd have to have a reason for my odd fascination regarding that character, too, though. well, that's just my own obsession with music.

speaking of which, i've been listening to steve earle obsessively all day. and dropped about 100 bucks between today and yesterday on a bunch of cds. steve earle, johnny cash, stiff little fingers, the misfits, social distortion, and beck.
