I think in a song, a man (or women) once said, " If loving you is wrong, then I never want to be right".
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understanding all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing,
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

The piece was called "My Past",
The key was set without faith, creating no tonal center,
The time signature was the reoccurring
The constant pulse of things done wrong,
Though the piece started on the down beat, the performers look to the audience to perceive whether its music was aesthetically pleasing, yet ignoring the dynamics.
The conductor stood in front, trying to grab their attention, waving his arms, however, their heads were too embedded within the stand, trying to make since of the piece
and yet, when it seemed as if modulation
was present, there would only be repeat signs every few bars
The final cadence was deceptive
The performers stood to take to what they thought was an unconvincing bow, and were only met by a few hand clap from what was largely a packed house...
Though the concert of my life started with a piece that was given by the spur of the moment, - this performance was far from over and was eminent of being the greatest of concerts ever performed.

Its funny, I use to love watching the Cosby show- and I still do when the re-runs come on. Something about it- yeah it may have been a little too perfect for some, but to me it just always put a smile on my face. I think maybe it was just the thought of what a good black family could look like; a father and mother who worked hard to make a living and created a family that they really loved. The kids, maybe not as real as today's standards, but it was still cool to see innocents. I think the fact that the show seem not to have any hidden motive but a honest belief in black family at it best was most appealing.
I would have to say that it was one of my all time favorite shows growing up. Yeah, some would say "far from reality", yet I think on some level most could say that the show was pretty cool- or maybe not (all depends on what vantage point you hold). Nowadays, there are a lot of family shows out, but nothing really like the Cosby show. Funny thing about the show is that it made many feel right at home and when it went off, it kinda left many feeling like, "what's next?"
The Reality is all things must come to an end (even in show business). For some, even though you know it many never air again with new episodes, I think for those who really loved it, it would be awesome to see just one more season.- call it a little wishful thinking
For some it was like watching a dream. For others,watching a reality and living a dream.
