Happy Birthday Frank

Last Sunday, Casey, Lauren, Tiffany and I went down to USC to see/hear the Thornton Wind Ensemble play their tribute for Frank Ticheli's 50th Birthday. The concert was amazing (as usual). They closed with a pretty awesome performance of Blue Shades (I love that clarinet solo towards the end.).

Casey and I are off to Fresno for All State later today. We have the live audition tonight to determine band placement and a full schedule of rehearsals, concerts, and free food Friday and Saturday. The concert is 1pm on Sunday. If you're remotely interested in driving 4 hours to see our lovely faces, the info is here. I'm really looking forward to this year...it should be a lot of fun.

A British fisherman came across a "Giant Snakehead" fish last week. You can see where it got the name. Those suckers are apperently known for killing and eating anything they come across. I'm glad it wasn't me.

I have to admit, this is one of the coolest video/music things I've come across: It's music made completely from those annoying little Microsoft sounds in Windows 95 and 98. Don't get me wrong, the music isn't annoying...it's just plain cool.

That's all for now...I should probably finish packing.

I'm offended. I guess Rachel and Mitch are just non-existant when we do stuff with you...
