Music and Things

Critics who treat "adult" as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adults themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence....When I was ten, I read fairytales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man, I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up. - C.S. Lewis

Truer words have never been spoken. Thanks to my tax refund, I had some extra money, so I used that to order some music online. I found this cool album all based on Neil Gaiman's work, and I also got the soundtrack to Watchmen along with the soundtracks to the first two Little Mermaid movies (it was a two-pack). Isn't it great to be old enough to enjoy a variety of things?
