The Culture of These Internets

July 20th, 2010 at 3:08 pm (Dan Griping About "The Modern World", Random Stuff)

Over a beer (or two) last night, Jack explained to me how text message exchanges tend to fall into a “cadence” — i.e., if I take 30 min to respond to a message, then I should expect to wait 30 min for a reply, and then probably wait 30 min to reply back (certainly don’t respond immediately, 30 min being the now-established “cadence” of the exchange), etc.  He also exasperatingly discoursed with me on the definition of the term “facebook stalking.”  He said trying to explain modern communication to me was like “shoving bamboo under his fingernails.”  Oh well.  At least I’m trying.

Unknown City Dreams Fan

July 13th, 2010 at 12:50 am (Random Stuff)

Carousel rehearsal last night.  Paul Farus is playing woodwinds, and is one of the biggest fans of City Dreams — at least, he seems to know about all the lyrics and can play any theme off the album.  He also did the sax solos on “Silent Hour” and “City Dreams.”  Anyway, at a particularly boring point in the rehearsal, Paul played the synth-lead theme from “City Girl”, and somebody in the theater — I couldn’t see who, but I didn’t recognize the voice — said: “Hey, I like that song!”  I’m slightly flattered.

On The Anniversary

July 6th, 2010 at 7:47 pm (Random Stuff)

Had an extended dream last night about aliens, and then got on my computer this morning and read that today is the 63rd anniversary of the Roswell UFO incident.  My dream involved investigating a crashed UFO in the desert.  Weird.
