A Totally Bitchin' Christmas

Last week I went to see Trans-Siberian orchestra in concert which is, yes I’m going to use these words, a bitchin’ show about Christmas.  Whoever came up with the idea to make a rock opera about Christmas is either crazy or a genius, but since it’s pretty successful I guess it’s the later.  Anyway, I’ve been playing the piano for about 2 years now and the show got me thinking about how I could be more awesome without actually practicing so here are some things I think I need to do.

I’ve really got to learn to head bang.  Is this something that must be practiced because I’m pretty sure if I tried it I would fall over and maybe throw up after a few minutes.  These people however managed to do it constantly.  Even the lady playing the flute managed to do a backbend.  I don’t think I could do it playing the recorder, which incidentally would be pretty lame.  I’m going to have to have a talk with my piano teacher about why she’s been wasting my time trying to teach me the B-flat major scale when I could be learning to rock.

Secondly, I need flames.  They’re just cool.  I think even the Hokey-Pokey could be pretty badass if I had a flamethrower strapped to the piano.  It may also change my mind about participating in the Christmas recital.  Also if anyone is still looking for a last minute Christmas idea for me this one has a squeeze valve and ships in time for Christmas.
