    My life has been pretty streamlined lately. Just going to school, coming home and feeding my internet addiction, wash, rinse, repeat.

    I have been bringing all my friends to my favorite Thai restaurant in Seattle. They are a small restaurant and since the economy sucks I definitely do not want them to go under. So thank you friends for your help!

    That's it, dude! I need to go out for a nice dinner. I'm glad there was no PCs when I was your age. I would have wasted the best years of my life sitting in front of a blue screen living vicariously through the internet. Instead I wasted the best years of my life rummaging through record stores every week!

    But I am old enough to have done some cool stuff like go see Frank Zappa in concert. Now that I'm an old fart, I stay home and listen to orchestral music and drink cheap wine.

    I've just finished building a flute for a man who lives in Paris. He is a classical musician who some of you would be familiar with (tease)

    Am aawake and still feeling terrible, but had a dream in which I heard the most fantastically sensuous music for orchestra

    I haven't been working as much as I should today (about 1 hour of instrumental practice and writing the fingerings of two of the three pieces of Takemitsu's "In the woods").
    But tomorrow I'm going to practice from 8 to 11 AM at least and give my first lessons - doing a replacement in my conservatory, mainly with young guitarists - the afternoon.
    I hope there won't be any problem.

    I have taken the decision to unplug my computer most of the time, so that I won't switch it on when I should be doing something else, saying "its I won't have for long" and spending four hours a day behind my screen, but only when I'll need it. I have also taken the decision I'll spend more time on TC and less on forums about one instrument q:

    Tomorrow is pay day, but a lot of the money is already accounted for - my father-in-law's 70th birthday bash, rent...

    I'm reading some really great books, I need to pull myself away from the talkclassical....

    Researching Jewish music and culture for the second part of a piece I'm writing for a friend, will probably end up being a belated wedding gift as the first part of the piece is my first time working with serialised pitch and rhythm. I reckon if I manage to lay down a few sets* a day I should be able to get to the final stages of part 1 in maybe a week, then I'll need all the time I can get to study the traditional music. I also want to include a replication of the traditional shofar call sequence, perhaps having one of the brass players double a ram's horn or as similar an instrument as I can find.

    * = Each group of instruments has its own matrices for pitch and rhythm, and is then subdivided in to "sets" where each instrument follows a set direction across the matrix. Each group has 2-4 sets of directions per matrix. Some are marked "free set" meaning there is no strict directional pattern to observe.

    First day working 3p-1a on the front desk. Supervisor is hugely impressed. Feelin' good. (But feet are so sore from standing for ten hours!)

    EDIT: Except now I have slot machine music running through my head...

    Today I woke up at 6:18am. I ate breakfast etc. took school bag and classical guitar and hopped on tram A1.250 (which was running route 11) at 7:16.

    I arrived at school a few minutes past eight this morning and I can remember anything that happened until 4:58pm when I got back home. Ate snack, practised for a few hours, ate dinner, watched Doctor Who at 7:30pm ("Daleks in Manhattan" was the episode in particular. ABC2 is replaying an episode form the revived series of Doctor Who every weeknight).

    From 8:15pm to about 9:18pm I seem to have forgotten everything that happened again. Then I went on TC.

    This is the exact tram I took this morning on the way to school, although here it is running route 95 (picture was from before it was repainted)
