Several things.

First, is this video of a bunch of people in an office lip syncing to Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger. It's infectious how much fun it looks like they're having. I want to work someplace that cool. (This is via Accordion Guy.)

Second, is this video over at the Brotherhood, wishing Hank happy birthday. A photo of Jack is smack dab in the middle of the video. Which is hella cool. Gotta love the Green Brothers. Much love and respect for nerdfighters!

Third, is this early video of an appearance by John Cage on a game show. Wonderful. Simply wonderful.

So, it's been entirely too long since I've posted. Sorry.

Here's a picture of Jack from his baptism in Little Rock. It was fun, but the car ride was just a little too long.

And this is a picture of Beth feeding Jack:

In other news, as I found out from the Brotherhood, YA author Maureen Johnson's book the Bermudez Triangle has been banned by a school in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. We've had our own run-ins with like-minded idiots here in Fayetteville. Fight the good fight. Go write those people and give them what-for for being such idiots.

I have high hopes that I might be making some pan seared teriyaki salmon with sauted vegetables tonight for dinner. Also, my latest vice seems to be vanilla soy chai. Which, all in all, is not a bad vice to have, as far as vices go.

Oh yeah, saw a friend (John, not sure if he has a website) of a friend last night, and he told me about Paul's Extreme Stretch, which is a program you can use to timestretch sounds to extreme lengths. Really only useful if you're someone like me who likes writing odd, spacey music. I haven't used it yet, but I can't wait to see what it will do to some old classical records. Nothing like massed swells of strings, really. (It's well known that one day I want to have my own violin section at my beck and call at all times.)
