If Mozart can do it, why can't I?

  1. He spells musik the kool way, but for some I reason, I'm treated as immature and childish when I do it.

    It's not fair.:(
     
  2. He spoke and wrote in German. We speak and write in English. "Music" is the commonly accepted English spelling. Deal.
     
  3. Quite frankly, spelling a word incorrectly because you think it's "kool" is both pretentious and childish. It has nothing to do with fair.

    If you want to aviod people treating you as if you are immature and childish, have something to say and say it properly. Forget about being "kool".

    You can do it if you're a multi-million $ Nu metal [sic] outfit called...<b>K</b>oRn... :p

    Oh, and I can do it, cause I'm German. :D
    Mozart was Austrian btw.

    Ich liebe Musik! :)

    Actually if you've seen the film "Amadeus" - this shows why a lot of people thought Mozart was childish and immature as well!! :D

    Well, it's true. Amadeus is known for being childish & immature.



























    I hear Mozart is too :D

    "Shaffer presents him as childish, arrogant, and foul-mouthed; admittedly, he is gifted, but too boorish and impulsive to be successful at the imperial court. He is a genius and "an obscene Struwwelpeter" (Adair, 142) at the same time. Yet, the play does not show Mozart in a bad light altogether. We are presented with a quite ambivalent picture of Mozart as a child-man. A Mozart with an anal fixation. A Mozart as a permanent adolescent. A Mozart who used foul language, who had a sharp tongue, who was notably ungenerous about his colleagues, who was a womanizer and, at the end, a poverty-stricken alcoholic. "

    Wacko and Sicko?! ;)

    Still, it goes to show that even the geniuses can't get away with childish and immature behaviour, without being criticised - so the rest of you have no excuse whatsoever!!

    LOL. But, people like Jaco & Mozart and MJ too, *can* get away with it - up to a point. People put up with a lot of **** from Jaco, because he was Jaco.

    But, there does come a point, when it goes too far, and people won't put up with it. At which point, Jaco couldn't get gigs.
