On the subject of good listeners, not all are musicians--but many are, and
who can argue with that, all humans are visually oriented and not all
potential listeners are patient and kind--I believe the line is, "razzle
dazzle 'em".  Why do you think it's all lime green?
There is a glut of entertainment in our culture--I think looping makes it
easy to increase the amount of music appreciation by peers and 
first you have to get his attention."
Oh that's my favorite punchline.
