Electronica studio

This is the studio of one of my customers, who creates tasty electronic tracks.

Masking tape sculptures

A customer at Taste of Thai keeps making more sculptures out of masking tape and leaving them on the counter.

The Pig Roast

I rushed from the final performance of Prairie to the Peace Corps Pig Roast. Almost all the food was gone, but I was in time for the drunken recitation of where everyone served. Plus words of wisdom. Mine were: "Stay in school, don't do drugs." I sold $40 worth of quilt raffle tickets, too.

Rachel in 1993

A friend sent me this picture a couple of days ago. It's Rachel in Iolanthe in 1993, I believe. Lenore Sebastian is the Fairy Queen.

Stan showed up in the pit tonight

It felt like old times!

Remember the old ice cream sandwich vending machines? This one has been converted to dispense burritos.

The best gumbo I have ever had

...at Sandra Dee's in Alkali Flats, right near the Music Circus theatre. They also have fantastic barbecue ribs and chicken.

Prairie fight scene

This piece of music from Little House struck many of us as similar to the underscoring to a classic Star Trek fight scene. Remember it here.

Bass drum sound

There is a certain bass drum sound on my Little House keyboard that creates a little puff of wind from the speaker.

People love these stories! The music has a nice Copeland-ish, Western sound. It's by the film composer Rachel Portman.

Very confusing sign

After much thought, I gathered all the food and drink in the room that I could find and kept eating until I passed out.

I played a theremin today

...and felt like I was inside a 50s science fiction movie. The owner said, "If you want to play it, you can borrow it any day except Halloween."

Air quotes

When I talked to Billy Aronson last night, he told me that his fifteen-year-old daughter says nothing that is not ironic. So I decided to make some air quotes on sticks for her. I mailed them today, and made another set for myself.
