In general, I tend to favor minimal government involvement.
As something of a fiscal conservative myself, I agree with you and can assure you that not all of us conservative-types think that money is needed to attract talent. In fact, there's this whole phenomenon called "selling out," which usually involves artists compromising their artistry and talent for the sake of dollars. Sad, but it's how some people operate. [/rabbittrail]
Also, I my personal experience seems to contradict the belief held by many fiscal conservatives that money is needed to attract talent. I consider myself a talented person, and I meet a lot of talented people at college, and I've found that, by and large, we're motivated primarily by a love of what we do - money is a secondary concern.
I'd encourage you to take a look at what he has to say. Even though he is fiscally pretty conservative, I imagine you might still like him.Unfortunately, I know very little about him, so I'm not really in a position to judge...
What do you think about Ron Paul?
Oh, so you're one of those musicians who manages to be awesome without slaving away for hours and hours in the practice room? Or have you simply mastered the art of efficient practice? I hadn't started figuring out efficient practicing until my senior year of college. -_-
During the school year, about 1.5-2 hours a day. During breaks, hardly at all.
Other than TWoR, do you have a portfolio of completed games or anything like that? Do you prefer making one kind of game over another?
It's a pretty ambitious project, so I want to try to make 1 or 2 complete, less ambitious games first.
Yes. Taking me back in the day... wow. I never did finish the Animorph series, though. A shame. My mom and brother did, though. You wouldn't also happen to be a TMNT or Bravestar fan, would you?
Animorphs ... The Land Before Time
Do you like bacon? Have you seen Jim Gaffigan's bacon sketch? ...Feed an apple to a pig, and the pig turns it into bacon.They're all right, but not real high up on my list of fruits.
Do you like apples?
We've established that you like Romantic music. What do you think about atonal or otherwise non-tonal music? Shoenberg, Webern, Wourinen, Penderecki, Xenakis etc.
Could we have a music sharing session sometime!?
If this is an open session, can I come, too?
