Kids’ countdown to the new year at noon at Ink in Gainesville. #
Happy New Year! We’re out of here and heading to the beach in the later A.M. #
I was just singing along to a song using my bass voice. My wife said it sounded like a burp! #
New Year’s Day is nearly over. We […]

Zune 30 Pandemic

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Oh, good grief! I awoke this morning to find my Zune in a less than pleasing way. I was concerned that the number of times I’ve dropped the device had finally caught up with me and I was paying the ultimate price. However, I decided to check out what was being said online […]

A Comment on the Weather

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I got a Christmas card from the nice folks at the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – the Climate Witness division. You may recall the article I wrote for them concerning the pitiful state of Lake Lanier (speaking of which, the scientific review of my story is now available). The card reminded […]

Musings for the week of 2008-12-15

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Tomorrow I attend a “Build-a-Drum” workshop. Very exciting! #
My son’s kindergarten teacher called me in to pickup a “sharp object.” It was a 3/4″ Forstner drill bit that he had forgotten in his pocket. #
First day of drum building was eventful! Tomorrow, I finish up and get to hear how it sounds. #
A mere 20 […]

What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

Frequency is probably a term more commonly associated with 80’s synth-pop artists and electrical sound engineers. However, it’s not to be underestimated or underutilized as a viable word in other situations.
I worked with one of the more difficult teaching challenges in my experience yesterday at my drum circle. A gentleman joined us with […]

Monday, August 18th, 2008

@HamWithCam With the exception of the beach part, that sounds like a normal day using bike panniers. #
Muffin, banana, granola bar, and yogurt. That’s a pretty good breakfast! I normally try for the biscuits and gravy @ work cafeteria. #
Captain’s Wafers, coffee, and almond granola – ready to ride! #

The First Day at School

Friday, August 8th, 2008

Yesterday was Balthazar’s first day of school. It started early that morning and the whole family was up for the affair. We drove him in and walked him to his class. It’s one of those “big steps” in a child’s life. I am excited about the idea of him becoming independent […]

Afghanistan Remembers Music

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

I listened to a piece from WNYC’s Radio Lab recently only to form a more concrete relationship with the loss that victims suffer under Taliban rule.
From the outside, looking in, the culture seems muddied with the intermingling of past and present times.  Between incomplete reports from the news agencies, history, and modern documentaries, it is […]

Zune 2.x

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

You may recall that I had written up the Zune Wish List a couple of months after I received mine in December of 2006. I took the time to assess my needs and what the Zune hardware and software could do to meet those needs. It has now been nearly a year since […]

2010: An Alice Oddessey

Wednesday, December 12th, 2007

Clear your calendars for 2010. Tim Burton is making an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland beginning in May 2008. It’s currently scheduled for release in 2010, so it may actually be too early to put together solid plans.
I haven’t heard much, but I know it’s supposed to be animated 3D – not quite […]
