I'm Never Bored Part 1: Von Karajan

I'm never bored.

There's not enough time in the world for me to see, read, experience, and visit all that there is to offer in this world.

Who has time to be bored?

Let me tell you that Tchaikovsky's Overture of 1812 was the rock n' roll of their time kids. And Herbert Von Karajan is one helluva composer.

Music is probably my first love, my first passion in this world. I first heard Von Karajan's Overture of 1812 when I checked it out of the local library - on vinyl of course - when I was 16. It changed me. As most influences do, and lord I have a slew of them, I embraced the melody, the passion, the roller coaster ride that classical has to offer.

Where do you think Queen, Metallica, Ennio Morricone, and the like received some of their inspiration?

I would have liked to have shaked Von Karajan's hand, and thanked him. Just once.

I did meet Pavarotti once... but that's a story for another day.

I'm never bored.

Here's more Von Karajan youtube mix that is gorgeous.
