Well, that was popular... thanks to all for the challenge. (And those who haven't taken me up on it yet are still welcome to throw your hat into the ring, but it may take a bit longer. When I found myself sitting in my Music of Oceania class today watching 'Are'Are people explaining how to make bamboo transverse flutes but attempting in my head to find appropriately dirty rhymes, I figured maybe I should come up with another post here.) As Liz G. pointed out, "now you know what skill you'll be able to offer in exchange for cans of food after the nuclear holocaust."
If I haven't been too informative lately, that's because I'm still trying to get more informed, esp. about what classes I'm taking. And listening to tons of New Order/Joy Division/Warsaw in preparation for the Great Making of the 3-CD-R Retrospective (I know I'm blowing this out of proportion, but the obsession convinced me to get Joy Div's Les Bains Douches, so that can't be bad.) Also watching lots of movies--eXistenZ last night in Coco's class, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie at home the other night. And, presently, listening to Sasha "wild man" Frere-Jones's 18-CD-R retrospective of his favorite music of last year.
