I won a $1000 last night.


Think I'll buy a bike tomorrow.

Maybe that's your karma after getting punched by that patient.

trying to plan a wedding that will take place overseas is kinda hard when you can't physically look at a venue. Also, it is tough that she is overseas.

It's a fair assumption that a sports-theme will not go over well, so I recommend avoiding that.

Starting tomorrow, I'm going to go through my Twentieth Century Music History Class syllabus and brush up on remember the name of important people, names, and add to the syllabus with what I felt was missing from the course. The books we used for the class was:

Alex Ross's The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century
Strunk's Source Readings in Music History: The Twentieth Century (Revised Edition) (Vol. 7) (Source Readings Vol. 7)


The 20th century is far from my 'specialty' (area of taste) when it comes to classical music--though I do love Sibelius--but it sounds like that course is handled pretty well from what (little) I know.  I visit a classical board and The Rest Is Noise has been mentioned a few times and is consistently met with rave reviews from members there.


On a semi-related note I finally got all the equipment in the mail and got my first hi-fi system rigged up a couple of nights ago.  It's a chamber music beast and also seems to work well with jazz given the treatment it gave the Sinatra album that came in the CD player (the CD player and receiver were both ordered used off of Amazon, I am a ballsy bastard), at least when that disc was working.  It got scratched to hell in shipment; I'm guessing the original owner forgot about it when he sold it to Amazon and left it in there.  I'm not going to complain too much, though, I'm always appreciate of free Sinatra.  On the other hand the speakers don't handle choral and orchestral music the way I'd hoped.  Oh well, I'm now off on a quest to hunt down and save up money for a set of speakers that will handle that stuff, and then I should be set.

Hells yeah, Shining Force 3 Scenario 3 arrived, the other two things I have on order shipped, and I took off the week of the forth.

TIME TO DRINK ME SOME ICED TEA.

Oh also I found some Dreamcast laser calibration isos. Gonna go find some high-quality CD-Rs and see if I can figure out why my DC keeps crashing. Need to figure out where I can get a small quantity of really good CD-Rs.

It's a book I think anyone would be able to jump into with ease, so I can only imagine it being in conversations about the subject.

Are you ordering the equipment for personal use, or is it for professional listening/work?

So I have a Facebook account but I haven't used it in years.
The email address it's connected to is my junk email so I don't mind.

I went to see the junk account today and there's an email from Facebook telling me I should join groups. It suggests the following:
- Ultimate boobs
- Thundercats
- Bajo la falda - upskirts
- Men's Health
- City of God (that's a TV serie or something?)
- Street Fighter

Serious lol... wtf Facebook... w t f

Getting a job in Korea is easy.

Getting a half decent job in the area you want is a pain in the ass.

So I'm tentatively scheduled for a huge installation job in the hamptons next week. 3 tvs, 1 being an 80in LED bad boy, a number of various audio/video components including a Wii U, infrared repeaters for the 80in tv because all of the av components accompanying it are to be placed in a seperate room, and speakers run all over the house and outside that all come back to a Sonos hi-fi system. This of course is all assuming that my dad comes out of the hospital visit he has tomorrow with either a stent or a pat on the ass and a have a good day. Possible bypass would throw a stick in the works.

Oh yeah, the day of the install is scheduled for my birthday. Hell of a way to spend a day, putting up some rich family's summer home entertainment system.

Do I buy a new Dreamcast and hope it works longer than a month?

Fuck it maybe I could sell it back to the place I bought it from. It's not working any worse than when I bought it from them.

Brief look at jobs at OSU and Nationwide. I'm not qualified for anything and I don't see any pathways to get those qualifications at my current job.

What impressed me is that we have some 20th century specialists there (including an active composer) who really liked the book.

The equipment is for personal use.  I'm not a reviewer or anything, just a dedicated fan. :)

pretty sure she would call the wedding off if we did that.

ugh, also immigration paperwork looks terrible.

That seems like a good guess.

Where are you moving to?
