Amazing! I don't have tourettes but could relate to a lot of stuff. Awesome videoMe too! The part where Nic asks the young fellow if he felt driven to play music really hit home and I couldn't help thinking of my daughter.

Since adolescence, my daughter has not been a morning person. She would emerge from her bedroom, hair askew, eyes barely open and a look in her eye that discouraged all comers; it wasn't a pretty site. But even in this semi-alert state, even before coffee, she would shuffle over to the piano, curse at the glare of the sunlight like the creature of the night she is, and play magical music to wake up. She plays because she must, not because it's there and something to do.

That's me when I'm home (have access to a piano). I wake up, and all I want to do is sit down and sing and play. Just play and sing whatever comes to my fingers. I so wish I could buy a keyboard and do that down here. It's funny because training horses, painting, all that stuff -- to me was like the little boy... it's what I do. But I sing and play because I have to...

*SIGH*

I can't hear the sound at all. :(
I just installed Linux on my desktop a month ago and that sometimes gives me trouble. Could that be it?
Does anyone know?

I someone does, and can spare the time to help me, a PM would be greatly appreciated!

I really want to watch this...?

I also couldn't help thinking of Glenn Gould while watching the video. Like Nic, Glenn Gould stopped performing in public.

Doesn't seem to work for me either.
I may miss some program.
Some other programs I have no problems watching and getting audio. :confused:
