Howdy YAL!

I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies. 

Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs, and Classical Music - Blair Tindall The funny thing is I think I know some of the people Tindall wrote about and yeah a lot of the stuff is true and then some. The book though gives a very sad but very realistic outlook on how orchestral musicians life is. Often the more talent performers are ignored for political and other unsavory reasons.
