Ode to the music
By Alex Seibenick
Flowing around you, it blows through your hair.
Feel the bass pump around you, feel the music and be one with the music.
Techno and Dance are just a few wide genres of the melodies that you see.
Amazed at the wonderous ecstasy that is all around you, colors are melding into the liquid blend of beat and rhythm.
At last, peace drifts over you and the music swirls around you like the moist fog of the early morning when the sun rises over the horizon.
Grasp the scents of vanilla, combining with the sweet fragrance of roses as you drift into the void of everlasting happiness while dancing your heart out to the mystic beats of the DJ.
Growing hotter and hotter, the light waves melt into the sound as your grip with reality loosens.
Colors swerve into waves, your passion for dancing grows even tighter. Nothing else, dance or die are the only choices as stopping would upset the momentum.
With the change of the tempo, the beat slows down and as the next song comes on you begin to gravitate towards the speakers and your vision blurs.
Like a drunk trying to find his way home, you stumble off of the stage and begin to wonder how you fell under the music's spell.
Usually resisting the temptation to let loose, you gather yourself and get back on stage just as the song ends.
Even the strongest wills can be easily broken. As the music begins again and you feel the beautiful, intoxicating, exhilarating mist of colors and sound drown out everything else you realize what's happened.
But it's too late.
Every day of your life since then, you miss those beats and those feelings.
Society has changed you and you're no longer that fun loving human based upon music that you once were.
Sorrow as deep as the Pacific Ocean fills your heart, as you miss those glory days of the ecstasy you felt during the dance clubs at night.
No longer are you happy, sitting at your desk and staring into the monitor of your Sony VAIO.
While daydreaming of your past life, your son comes up to you.
Finally it is time. Maybe your children can relive that life.
Let the beat take you
As the beat goes on.

It's the end of your Junior year and you are told you will be house captian next year. What will you do with that power?
I would create FUN DAYs when everyone could literally wear whatever they wanted- as long as they have undergarmets and a shirt/shorts on-
and everyone would be very happy.
I would also make sure that the little guys weren't picked on as people who do dumb things- although I gottaluv him, Evan can do some stupid things- were when I was a frosh. I'd try to censor that as much as I could from our school.
I would certainly not be a great house captain because whenever I am given power, I always go insane and power-controlling. Whenever I used to post with my friends on my Forum, I would control anything I didn't want happeneing, no matter what they thought.

If so, then I'd TOTALLY get:
a Macbook Pro (17-inch)
a Palm Pre + Simply Everything plan
a M16 assault rifle and a license for it
a 20-foot screen to put on the basement wall + projector
5 Linux laptops + 2 Red Hat subscriptions (1 laptop and an iMac)
Another lottery ticket.
After that I would give the rest to OLPC and Unified for Unifat.
