Since June 27th up until today, Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has used his Twitter feed to do nothing but post little tips for navigating life that he feels like he's learned throughout the years. Some are practical and direct, some are personal and involve making music and art, some are spiritual and inspirational -- all of them, though, certainly when taken as a whole, are wonderfully affecting and a great reminder that while Limp Bizkit may have its reputation, the mysterious Borland has always been something special in the band and as an artist in general.
These are my favorites among his Twitter list:
One of my very first, and most lasting memories, is hearing Erik Satie's Gymnopedies as a child and being so moved by it that it actually made me cry. It was the most beautiful thing I'd ever heard and maybe still is. I was about Inara's age at the time.
