MY NAME IS ______

1303-my-name-is-muhly.jpg

in high school, when i first heard the name and music of

nico muhly

 i immediately hatched the ultimate plan to go to school in new york, find him, and marry him, so that i may be called

molly muhly

. i could have an awesome alliterate name and

it's about time

would have been my jam all day every day. short story shorter it didn't happen, yet i did break my squid-eating virginity with him just the other day. {and

it's about time

was the opening of my senior recital.}

in many ways i am inspired by nico: not just by his music, but also by his use of language in his blog and 

twitter

feed and real life. it's original and gets the point across. he also has bulk amounts of

great

energy. so it's for these reasons that i've made him the first subject of the

manhattanites in march

subsection of the
