paradigm_shift: (Secret fires)
I was feeling nostalgic for my high school band days, not that they're all that far behind me, if we're talking about the truth. I threw together a selection of pieces of songs that are part of the classic concert band repertoire, pieces I've attempted to play, and some that just caught my fancy.

Hopefully, you all like the music as much as I do.

paradigm_shift: (Pass the branch)
This is the part where I admit South Dakota has never been a favourite character, and will probably never be. She arranged it so that her brother would be in a dangerous situation, where he probably wouldn't survive. But I also have to recognize her strength of character, able to do what she has to in order to survive and carry on. There's always more to a person than what we can see, and I know that my ideas of loyalty, of being there for someone till the end, (especially those who are blood-kin or a chosen family) can be unhealthy. There's a time when you have to put yourself first.

Sometimes, the best choice is to walk away, sometimes, it's to stop and let go; and sometimes, being able to live another day and remember those who are gone is the only course you can take. Dying for someone is worthless - there's nobody left to carry on - but living, making the most of what you have left, that has to be admired.

So yes, this is a mix for South Dakota, but just facets of her. It's a rather lonely mix, solely focused on her. Not one half of the Twins, part of the Dakotas, one side of a team. Always half of a part and never the whole. She has always been in the shadow of her brother (and the younger sibling to boot), perhaps it's time she had her own path.

The roads I walk are paved with the broken promises I've made )
