    Seriously, how did this happen? Why did you post this? What gave you the idea? Why am I asking all these questions?

    I think maybe I'm a cicada, sitting in the shade of a tree and buzzing my soul out over repetitive hums and rumbles while thinking to myself "please like me."

    Oh, hi. Please turn the volume down a little, and stop leaving your nasty exoskeletons all over my house. Thanks.

    Honestly to take this serious for a moment, depends much on the music I play I would say.

    Somewhere between an otter, a monkey, a wolf, a bull, a bear, a dolphin and a sfinks or perhaps even a dragon, according to the music.

    Sometimes though it happens I am just an ordinary dork.

    My bass is a magical omni chromatic bobcat that answers the name Goldilocks.
