Student: I’m going to see Star Wars tomorrow, #8 return of the Jedi, I haven’t seen this but I know everything about Star Wars.
Teacher: You know Akira Kurosawa?
Teacher: That is the guy whose film Star Wars is based on.
Student: Star Wars isn’t based on another film.
Teacher: Yes it is, its called The Hidden Fortress. It was made in the 1950s, black and white.
Student: I think you mean the light sabre fights because those are based on something from Japan.
Teacher: Yes like that movie.
Student: I don’t think you’re right.
Student: I’ve been watching it since I was 8, I think I would know.
Teacher: What do you think of the music in Star Wars like when they are in a bar and there is a band playing.
Student: I think it is realistic.
Student: Based on what music in the future would sound like.
Teacher: But we’ve never been to the future.
Student: Yes I know but I still think that is what it would sound like.
Teacher: What else do you know about the future?
Student: That we all die.
Teacher: Now we agree on something.
Student: Right, but first I’ll make a band and we’ll tour the world and I’ll make a lot of money and buy a house and help my parents.
Teacher: That shouldn’t be a problem.
Student: I’ve been working on this dream a long time.
Student: I don’t believe in luck.
Teacher: What do you believe in?
Student: My dreams I believe in those.
Teacher: And if they don’t work out?
Student: Maybe I’ll be a teacher like you.
Sometimes I’m totally distracted by someone in the audience.
Sometimes it’s tempting to do certain flourishes that audiences like even if I don’t.
Sometimes I thought it was great but the recording reveals it wasn’t.
Sometimes I tell the same intro as if I never told it before.
Sometimes I thought the performance wasn’t very good but the recording in fact was.
Sometimes I’m impressed with what happened despite no confirmation elsewhere.
Sometimes I don’t make a set list.
Sometimes I wish people were in the room when I’m getting somewhere unique while practicing.
Sometimes I think it is all in my head but no, that’s impossible.
