Welcome to another week's interview with a blogger genius, Cornet Crazie! (Oh, and remember that there is only one "o" in Cornet... I made that mistake, but we learn from them, yes?)

Cornet Crazie is the blog owner of Treble Clef, and I totally recommend checking her awesomeful blog out!

Alrightey, I'll not keep you a minute longer... I present to you, Cornet Crazie!!!

Prism: How did you come up with your username?
Cornet Crazie: Well, I'm pretty much the world's biggest band geek, and my first band instrument was the cornet. {That's part of the trumpet family, but it's much more compact with the same tube length, and it's conical and not cylindrical making it have a mellower sound} Anyway, that's what got me into the best thing that's happened to me: band. For the second part of my name, I wanted to show people my band obsessiveness and also into the hyper side of my world. But, I really didn't like how 'crazy' looked, and anyway it was an adjective. So I simply changed it to make it much more unique, and a noun. Plus I love the letter 'z'.

Prism: Cats or dogs?
Cornet Crazie: Totally cats. Even though I've got a 4+ allergy (highest rating) to both of them, I love cats and they love me. Dogs on the other hand, seem to hate me.

Prism: What is your favorite style of music?
CC: I really like everything but my favorite to listen to is new age. I absolutely adore music by Owl City and Enya. When I'm playing one of my many instruments however, it's jazz all the way. I love the syncopation, the different styles, the solos, competitions and of course, the high notes. The other kind I really love to play on my trumpet is those really slow, soft, emotional songs in concert band. They're so pretty, and I love showing people that a trumpet does not just play loud obnoxious parts but can really almost sing sweetly. Seriously, I can make my band director cry with that kind of playing.

Prism: What is the purpose of your blog?
CC: Well, I have two blogs, Anecdote and Treble Clef. Anecdote is a place to share my writings, mainly short stories and poems. Treble Clef is my main blog where I mainly write about my life, hold some contests, and for me it's a great creative outlet. I love making blog designs, and connecting with other bloggers.

P: How long have you been blogging?
CC: Well, I had a warrior cats blog, SunClan, with Olive Tree back in 2008 I believe. That blog is long gone, and I started Treble Clef in January of 2009, and I plan to continue blogging there for a very long time!

P: Ice cream or cake?
CC: That's such a hard choice, it really depends on how I'm feeling that day!

P: What is your favorite subject in school?
CC: You've probably figured that one out already! Band. I have the most amazing band director; she's the best teacher I've ever had. In band my main instrument is my professional grade Yamaha Xeno silver trumpet, and then my Conn Director cornet for the mellow tunes, but other instruments that I play spattered around in concert band and training jazz band are trombone, clarinet, piano, bass, mallets and a tiny bit of drum set.

P: What is your favorite color?
CC: Green. I just love how it is springy and fresh. Plus it's one of the only colors I'll wear. (I mostly wear green, blue, aqua, purple, some gray and black cause yellow, red and orange look awful on me.)

P: CDs or MP3 players?
CC: Hard choice again. It really depends on where I am. (Whether I'm on the couch at home reading a good book, or skiing down the terrain park and double black diamonds for instance)

P: If you could go anywhere in the world for a week, where would you go?
CC: There are so many places! I'd love to go out to the Rockies for a week to ski, or go to somewhere like Greece.

P: Thanks a bunch for allowing me to interview you, Cornet Crazie!!!
