Mastering the spectra of life

Is it a double personality or normal. I find many things in my life (and little tiny brain) that displays a multiple personality. Maybe you guys could also see that in you, and maybe not.
I am a sucker for love music, and would sing like a canary (even though my beloved wife begs me not to sing) upon hearing them. "That’s how much I feel" for ambrosia is one of my favorite songs. "Boulevard" brings back some memories, and many more songs. But in the same time, I enjoy "white snake", "Metallica and "guns & roses" heavy metal groups. Actually, I attended four concerts total in my life, "yanni", "Metallica", Pink Floyd", and "the Cleveland classic orchestra". So much contradiction there, but maybe this is normal.
I would melt down "ya3ny basakhsekh" when I join a conversation about polymers and chemical reactions, yet I believe that I am no nerd. I know I am not a nerd, just a dude who happens to be smart in chemicals (and pretty bad in everything else), but "az3ar" in the same time.
Whatever gives you the kick and the pleasure, do it. You could present in conferences in front of tens of people speaking English with an accent, and sing "ya3a6eyyah" while playing the rababa after wards. Wake up at night praying to the almighty God, and at noon, you visit your friends to talk about "those twins" who keep appearing in the "Coors light" commercial along with the Texas Dallas cheerleaders. Love, and hate. Feel joy, and sing the blues about your misery. Hang out with the guys in the sports bar and grill, and have a romantic evening with the wife in some fancy restaurant.
I think that it is normal to live your life going from extreme to the other, provided that you know your limits, and be within the guidelines that you set for yourself. You don’t have to be always on one extreme. Just do it (sorry Nike, had to steal this one)

Nice Post. Nothing like running on the wild side every once in a while.

I would love to attend a "Yanni" concert, but heavy stuff ... not for me :)
I agree that we have to take a walk on the wild side every once in a while, otherwise we will live to regret it.

Great taste man. I enjoyed my pink floyd concert (cleveland stadium, 1992) and that was a couple of years after I came to the states. It's just magical

LOOL just make sure that u are within your boundaries that u assigned to urself. :)

Yanni was ok. I just don't like his looks and his fake smile. But he does have great music. I enjoyed the black lady who played the violen (spelling??), she was just awsome.

Dude, I think it is normal, otherwise we both would be from a different planet; sometimes I stop singing Sad but True, remove Metallica CD from my player to insert Um Kalthum CD and start singing Ansak, Ya Salam with her…
Some other times I tune my TV from Jazeera Live which is broadcasting the live coverage for Saddam trial to enjoy the live broadcasting of Miss Lebannon at LBC…

It’s just being moody I think!

Hi Bo3Bo3, I came here by chance from a analog related search result on google. Your blog title, "Mastering the spectra of life, is not a perfect match for what I was looking for, but I am glad to have read your post. If you need info about analog, just visit my site.
