2009: It's in the MMIX

Howdy folks! It's another update after something of a break. Just a deficit of inspiration time and a surplus of shit to do.

Things I've been doing include:
-Celebrating Yuletide and New Years and junk
~Getting snowed on a bunch
*Celebrating America 44.0
%Finishing grad school applications and plotting my escape
¡Recording awesome music!
∏Going up Italy

Items - and ~ are pretty self explanatory. It snowed and it Chrismas'd and stuff and we all had a merry and frustrating time.

America 44.0 is off to a pretty good start. 'Bamers and Co. are doing a lot of good and it looks like we're not going to regret all that hoping and twittering we did for them. I really like the part where he signs laws that make sense and reflect my opinions about things, and says things that aren't thoroughly moronic.

I applied to linguistics programs at University of Hawaii, Northwestern University, University of Pennsylvania, and NYU. They all have great programs. I feel like my prospects are best at NYU and Hawaii, but have know real idea if or where I'll get in. In any case I am planning to move out of Seattle to some place like Philadelphia or Honolulu or Cardiff.

I've been doing studio work for about the past month on a solo metal album that will totally rock your socks so hard that they won't be socks anymore, but metal boots with spikes. Also you'll have gauntlets.

I got back on Wednesday night from a week in Italy, where I ate an extreme lot of pizza and pasta and gelato and cheese. It's amazing to me how much more flavorful cheese is there (damned pasteurization). Also, it's ridiculous how many paintings there are of the Madonna and Child and the Adoration of the Magi. But one thing that is truly universal is annoying teenagers on buses.

Coming soon: Notes on develarization of final nasals.
