    *blinks*

    I got a flute this year. A real, professional-quality, thousand+ dollar flute.

    If you've never heard one of this quality - tuned and hand-adjusted, pads aligned just so, headpiece of the exact length for the warmest tones - then you're missing out on one of the best sounds that you're ever going to hear from an instrument.

    *goes off to play the Star Wars medley again on this thing... mmmm*

    I'd post a clip of myself playing if I had a camera or microphone to capture my playing with. And I am -so- out of practice with a halfway decent flute that it's not funny. *chuckle*

    Ian Anderson.. I'll look the music up.

    My landlord just smashed it. He got pissy at the DVD player, I asked if I could help him fix it, and he yelled 'no' at me. So I went in my room and to calm down from the yell, started playing the flute. He stormed in (I leave the door unlocked - well not anymore), took the flute, and smashed it against the wall before I could do a damn thing about it.

    I have over a thousand dollars worth of flute pieces on the floor now.

    Merry god damn ****ing christmas.

    WTF. Take some kind of action against him. $1000 is felony range in some parts. At minimum I would call the police.

    There is a reason another man thinks he can treat you like that and get away with it. Not just because he is your landlord either. I'd look into it before it causes more problems in your life. Who knows though maybe hes just a lunatic.
