obligatory report

Lazy Saturday. We awoke (late) with no agenda, except maybe probably to head down to OMSI (didn’t happen – we’ll try again tomorrow). Over the course of the day I cleaned up dog shit from the yard, filed a stack of papers, practiced keyboard for a good hour or so (the three B’s – Brahms’ “Hungarian Dance”, Beethoven’s “Fur Elise” and some Bach minuets), wandered around Powell’s for two and a half hours without buying anything (although I almost brought home a book on macramé).

Recent audio highlights: Ravi Shankar and Yehudi Menuhin, West Meets East; Jon Stewart, America: The Audiobook. Saw House of Flying Daggers, Garden State, I Heart Huckabees. Finished reading Free Play by Stephen Nachmanovitch, started Barack Obama’s autobiography. I’ve been a great consumer of mass culture this week.
