So here's what I said to myself in the middle of busting out some aMAZing thoughts in my research paper:
[The Sims 1 soundtrack is playing on Grooveshark: http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/s/Building_Mode_3/6UnVt
Click this and you will feel like such an idiot for thinking I'm crazy for listening to video game music for fun. It's beautiful stuff]
"This music is as awesome now as it was the summer before 8th grade. Hey wait a second...this is being played on a piano! I NEED THIS SHEET MUSIC!!!"
[background information: I took piano lessons for nine years, and while I have never mastered the art of sight-reading, I can play pretty well if a.) it's a song I really like, and b.) I practice my A off. I find myself drawn to Andrew Lloyd Webber showtunes and the piano stylings of Vince Guaraldi--who isn't though, right?!]
And guess what? I FOUND THE SHEET MUSIC. I am SO all over this when I go home to Colorado in 9 days.
But I need to finish this research paper first.
