I'm an athiest, but i don't try to force people to believe what I believe. I don't challenge other people's beliefs. I've had this one guy bother me for 5 years about being an athiest. (I go to a PK-12 school distict). He's always asking me why I'm not religious, why I don't believe in God, etc, ect, and so on. i've done everything I can think of, including inflicting bodily harm on him (well - I dropped a book on his head. But I don't even think that hurt him) but he won't stop. how do I stop him? (link)
Have you ever tried actually LISTENING to him? Has it ever occured to you that he might actually be RIGHT? Being self-centered and defensive never helped anyone ELSE, so why should it work for you? I can see your point of view, but I really don't agree with it. I'm not going to preach to you, but perhaps if you just opened up a little it wouldn't be so much of a problem any more. I'm sorry to be blunt, but you might just have to try seeing both sides of the coin on this one.


These are some of the singers I like:
Simon & Garfunkel
Indigo Girls
Christine Kane
Paul Simon
James Taylor
They Might Be Giants
Dar Williams
Woody Guthrie
Natalie Merchant
Other CDs I own include Edith Piaf, The Canadian Brass Ensemble, The Charlie Daniels Band, Enya, Counting Crows, and soundtracks for Fiddler on the Roof, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Sister Act.

What other artists/bands might you suggest that I might like? (link)
Try "Old Blind Dog" folky in a way, but very good. Um... Jars of Clay. GOOD MUSIC.


How does one keep their voice in good condition during the three-month span of everyday musical practice? {ie, practice for a musical}

I'm aiming to a lead role and I want to know how to keep my voice intact. (link)
Go you! I'm a singer of sorts myself and if I can't at least give a little advice on this I'd be in big trouble. First of all, drink water, drink water, DRINK WATER. There is NOTHING better for your voice than to be well hydrated. Also, get lots of sleep. If you go to bed at 10 at night, try going to bed 15 minutes or even a half hour earlier, it DOES make a difference! Here To Help was right on about the practicing thing too, and don't forget to warm up! And if you can't sing every day or your throat is sore, don't push it, or you could end up really damaging your voice.
