In the spirit of Christmas, here are a few links for you:
Be sure to track Santa this evening utilizing the technology from NORAD. As I type, the most recent sighting was London, England. Check out the video.
Leave it to Americans. Prisoners and suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay are receiving holiday greetings. Some of the better ones could be, "Dear Avowed Enemy of America: Merry Christmas," or "Dear Friend of Usama Bin Laden: Happy New Year."
It's finally winter break, so there is 3 weeks of freedom ahead. That will be really nice. There is still T of R, so we get to look forward to marching in circles for hours on end. Apparently I'm the tallest clarinet so I get center guide. The odd thing is that I happen to be the shortest center guide. Oh well. Just watch channel 5 (locally) towards the middle of the parade for PCC and the person behind the Goliath trumpet player in the center is... me!
Apparently the 16 of us T of R folks from around here are getting a little press. There should be a piece running in the AV Press soon (I'll post it when it runs) and we have an interview scheduled for good 'ol AV3 news. So if you're home Monday morning around 9:30, watch channel 3. Or don't. It's up to you.
Finals were last week. Everything went pretty decently. The cat test for anatomy was a tad moldy but otherwise cool. Honor band auditions were on Thursday as well. I didn't feel to hot right after the audition (the sight reading was a bit impossible) but apparently I did pretty well getting first chair again. Everybody else (Julian, Tani, Holly, Shivani, Tiffany, etc) was right up there to so that's cool.
This has to be one of the coolest videos of all time (with the exception of the one posted above). This dude plays music by rolling by stationary bottles on roller blades. Pretty awesome. I should try that. Then again with my balance I'd probably fall on the bottles.
These are pictures of the most unusual buildings. Some look photoshoped, but I believe these are genuine. Interesting.
Be glad you weren't in Taiwan recently when a dead whale exploded all over the street. I'm sure that was a very pleasant experience for observers. I wasn't aware that whales actually exploded, but I'll keep that in mind.
A few weeks back we brought you Will it Blend? Marbles! Here is a new segment: Will it Blend? I pod! One question: Why?
That's it for now...I think I'm going to go take a nap.
