So, in musical news, it seems that there's going to be a new version of Reason coming out. You can read about it here on CDM. It looks really cool. (There's a modular synth called Thor and an arpeggiator!!!) If only it had audio support. Or was available as a VSTi or something. I love the sound of Reason, and it's incredibly easy to make things sound good, but, there's so many more possibilities for sonic textures when you have access to VST plugins. Anyway, despite the drawbacks, I'm still excited. Will definitely have to play with the demo.

In other news, our friends Ken and Jess are in VIETNAM right now! They're going to pick up their son Beckett. This is so cool and exciting, and we're all so happy for them. Beckett is a very lucky little boy, to be getting two of the coolest people in the world for parents. I'm happy for them, but I'm really really happy for him.

I've been thinking lately about the rash of women lately, in the last few years, who, while seeming to be wonderful people, definitely beautiful, seem to be making the exact WRONG choice of men to go out with/marry/have children with. And a lot of them end up missing, dead, or worse, as a result. And then I juxtapose this in my mind with my male friends who can't seem to get dates. And it makes me sad. I'm not trying to blame the victim here, but at some point you have to wonder if the way that people pick their significant other in our culture has gotten all screwed up. It just makes me sad.
