well, this christmas break has been totally low key. haven’t really done much of anything. i’ve been watching about 5 espisodes a day of Alias from the season 3 box set my brother got. the weather has kept me from going out and running.

so it’s time of reflection again. time to think what’s happened this semester and justify everything.

the hurricane. probably the biggest waste of time in my life.

ebombs, yeah

so in a weird, scary sort of way, i find myself thinking about how a terrorist group or anyone really could kill, isolate, innoculate large groups of people at one time. and the ebomb was one of them. it would be a perfect way of shutting down a large metropolitan area or technology based centre. communications would go down, cars, cell phones, etc. electronic devices would be useless. it could easily cripple any major city, capital, miliatary base.

but then i read an article and they beat me to it.

i don’t feel that there is anything wrong with riding, although people try to tell me otherwise. they said only scared girls ride it. and not that reason alone am i not afraid of using that service.

tonight i went to a concert at the university auditorium. being late for practice and across campus from flavet, i called SNAP. they picked me up and went to the florida gym, where a group of 8 or 9 cookie-cutter beautiful blonde sorority girls in short skirts were waiting to be also picked up.

performance review

in the restroom in the music building, an asian phd comp student with an english accent started talking to me and asked me whether or not i was a graduate student. he told me he was impressed.

that made my day.


i was sitting in broward dining, trying to figure out if i like London Panini or not when a tall, long brown-haired guy with size 4 plugs in his ears came up to me:

him: aren’t you nick?
me: what? (not quite sure he was talking to me, with panini in my mouth)
him: aren’t you […]

playing pickup last night at flavet, i told someone that i probably wouldn’t go up against someone if the disc is swilly in a jump-ball situation, for the sake of preventing injury. he was quick to tell me i was a panzy for not playing hard.

‘i’m on the hand-ball club and he plays hard in everything; every sport. you club people are stupid.’

yeah, he’s right, i like having someone who can’t control their body slamming into me or taking me out in the air or rolling over my ankle again.

but anyways, i don’t know what’s wrong […]

i finally figured out how to publish some music as mp3. it’s still from midi sampling, but hopefully i’ll have a real recording wednesday.

here’s the woodwind quintet i’ve been working on.


and i also finished my first electronic piece last night.

it’s based off 4 sounds. sounds better with headphones because of the panning. this piece is also known as Ali’sBackPorch.

this past week

this past week has probably been the most stressful fucking week ever. this just got worse and worse.

i’ve been sick all week. my throat is killing me. i’m totally congested.

the gators lost.

my candidate for president who promised me he’d fight for every vote, conceded before any chance of a full count.

each of my performers for my woodwind quintet (who told they could play my piece) told me they couldn’t make it. i eventually replaced everyone twice on each instrument. i was completely stressed. but now we’ve run through the piece and things look good. they’re playing at […]
