I’m writing this at 36,004 feet
June 13, 2023


I’m writing this at 36,004 feet. I looked it up for you on my little screen. So, this may sound loftier then my usual missives. Most likely it will sound exactly like when I write at sea level, but you can hope for the best.

Getting high. So what am I gonna do with that? No idea, but I gotta ask our sopranos if this is what it feels like to sing so damn high. I mean, our ladies sing crazy high. I write these insane Eb’s above High C for them. Eb above High C is *way* over on the right side of your piano. They’re usually the dustiest keys, cuz you never play them, and wonder why they even bothered to include them when they built it. So, it’s really, really high, but these ladies all kinda roll their eyes with a “is that all you got” look, and then proceed to shatter all the wine glasses in a city block.

It’s awesome.

Don’t like to read? Victoria reads this email to you!

And they do this with the band crushing a great, huge metal riff under them. I think I wrote about having a good foundation in the last email. You can pull it out of the trash and review when you have a sec.

So what I’m saying is, the view at 36,004 feet is pretty cool, so I wonder if that’s what it feels like in their head when they sing the Eb. They’ll probably just roll their eyes at me (again), but I’m gonna ask them, cuz I know you want to know.

Yep, sopranos are awesome and metal is awesome and movies are awesome, and that’s why I mash them all together for you. 

Ya know… I’m always as surprised as you are. I really thought I’d never write myself out of this one.

The relationship between metal and classical can be complicated until you realize that they’re exactly the same thing. Adding a movie to the mix just makes it that much more fun.

That’s why the shows are fun. That’s why the CDs are so fun. That’s why you love us, and that’s why now you can help others get through the initial shock of realizing that metal and classical music are the same thing.

Okay, we gotta wrap this up cuz I’m sitting on the aisle and the guy by the window wants to go to the bathroom… again.

Put your seat backs and tray tables in their upright and locked position, and enjoy this week’s song.

Dude. Why are all the wine glasses cracked and what’s in it for me?
That was awesome.

Bottomline it for me
– Dust your piano every now and then
– Eb above High C is really, really high
– Soundproof the crystal
– Where do you think KISS got the idea for all their makeup?
– That’s the last time I’m getting up for this guy

That’s it, I’m not gonna get all mushy.

See ya ~ Kevin
