An open letter to all violinists

Dear violinists of the world,

This man is Owen Pallett. He is a one-man band called Final Fantasy. He does the string arrangements for the Arcade Fire. He does amazing remixes. He and Andrew Bird are to the violin what Chuck Norris and Mr. T are to kicking ass. His new album, Heartland, is expected to come out this year, and if the recent performance above is any indication, it's going to be mindblowing. Violinists of the world, please stop boring me and try to be more like Owen Pallett instead. Thanks.


P.S. Also, stop scoring 2400's on the SAT. Seriously, it's pissing me off.
