Migrating to a New Blog ~ Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Well my friends, the time has come. I've been trying out the WordPress interface and it's really really good. So, the time has come to migrate this blog there. I'll leave this one here, with all my past posts. But, if you've enjoyed popping in here from time to time, or you've got this one on rss, I invite you to pop over to my shiny new WordPress blog!

Sadly, WordPress doesn't allow me to use my own design (rather--they will, but for a price and for now, I'm liking "free" better than "fee", so I'm just going with their designs instead). But in general the interface is slick and integrated and much easier to use. And so, alas, goodbye blogger. *sniff* I'll come back and visit sometimes, but my new blogging home is WordPress for now.

Hope to see you there!

Shopping Teams ~ Monday, April 13, 2009

This pretty much sums up Tom's and my shopping style. Depending on the product, we're either "good" or "very bad". From xkcd.com.

YouTube Symphony Orchestra @ Carnegie Hall ~ Saturday, April 11, 2009

They'll be playing on April 15th! Fascinating.

The video below features some of the musicians who will be performing in it. The entire orchestra was recruited via a call for video auditions/submissions. There were great resources at the website that included scores for all the different instruments, recordings of both the specific instrument's part as well as full orchestral recordings with said part missing, so musicians could practice their part with the larger ensemble, plus pieces to be learned for the audition.

The work to be performed was written by Tan Dun, who wrote a cool opera we saw a couple of years ago, called The First Emperor. It is about the nigh-legendary and highly controversial first emperor of China, who united the separate nations under his rule (same chap as was portrayed in the Emperor and the Assassin and, I believe, in Hero as well).
