Only 3 days until game time...
We leave about noon on Thursday. I'm kinda of nervous/excitied. I tried to bust out all the scales (majors + melodic minors) followed by the full piece and I realized I'm a bit out of shape when it comes to the Mozart, but I should be ready by Thursday.
The Grace recital festival thing was yesterday. I did a solo, duet and trio and they all turned out pretty decent despite the light, or lack thereof. I'm also busy picking things for Solo & Ensemble in March so it seems all I've been doing lately is practicing.
The AV Press ran a photo of us honor band folks on Friday. Apparently they're doing a feature thing in the AV Lifestyle magazine coming out on the 22nd (hey something seems familiar about that day...oh that's right, its George Washington's birthday), so I'll post that when it comes out.
It rained last night which was quite needed and nice. Unfortunately it wasn't a "good" rain but nonetheless it was rain. I wish it would rain more often. I like that "suicide weather" as my father so wonderfully puts it.
Test your reaction time by tranquilizing sheep. It's quite entertaining. My average time is 0.2038 seconds (without coffee). If you give it a try it's probably smart to keep the sound off. Those "sheep" are quite annoying.
There are either really clever or really stupid people out there who make these signs. It's just a various collection of funny signs from around world.
Microsoft has a list of recommended basic music making software for your PC (note the "PC" part). At the bottom: Garage Band. That's real logical. Good move.
By the way, I hope everybody has a joyous Valentine's day in a few days. I think I'm going to join the 3% of Americans who give their pets a Valentine.
Well, I need to go practice/pack...see you next week.
