This Saturday the BCSO will have it’s annual Pops concert. A Pops concert is a little more relaxed than your standard stuffy orchestra concert and features lighter and fun fare. Aside from the musical content (that I’ll cover in a moment), we do a special concert format. We set up the floor in round tables […]


“Churches are becoming political organizations…. It probably will not be long until the churches will divide as sharply upon political, as upon theological questions; and when that day comes, if there are not liberals enough to hold the balance of power, this Government will be destroyed. The liberty of man is not safe in the […]


So I went to music again tonight. I hadn’t really planned to. Since the work stepped up on Diamond Visuals stuff I had to take a sad raincheck with both the Band and the Orchestra. Sometimes things can surprise you, though.

lala laaa lala laaa…

joepieee.mp3 (2.4 M) I wonder if this could be mixed into a techno beat. It would only take a bit of a tempo upbeat and some breaks here and there. Scary. (For those who don’t know. It’s Belgian, and see: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8297574364836044520) (Oh yeah. It’s triggur‘s fault.)

The one-week sync and copy is DONE! We have DSL again! Yay!

Two rants in a row?

God I so hate the “A” in ADSL.

ADSL is what the phone company sells you. It stands for Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Link or Asynchronous Dirtbag Shithole of a Line or Asynchronous OMGWTFBBQ-How-Much-Money-Can-We-Drain-From-You-For-Wanting-Broadband or whatever. The point of it all is that funny little word: Asynchronous. The digital line has only so much address space. It’s like a pipe and you can only […]
