Once again, the weekend was a fury of activity.
Friday night I hung out with Ernie, Keller, Joanna, and Bekah. Bekah wanted Keller’s help in recording a few tracks on the piano. I helped by sitting quietly in the background matching her left hand on bass. What fun. I haven’t played music with a group in quite some time, and it was a blast. We also had a really short, but really interesting, conversation about books. Bekah, it seems, has read every book ever written by mankind. She was able to fully converse about any book that any of us had read. This made me realize two things.
1. I need to read more books for pleasure.
2. I wish I had a better memory and could remember books more easily.
Saturday, post class, I had my first real introduction to guitar hero. Holy Fun. My sister totally ruined it for me though as I excitedly told her of my guitar hero adventures…
Mike D (overly excited): I played GUITAR HERO last night for the first time
Alicia: oh yeah? my Friend Eran invented that game.
Mike D: wha.. huh?
Alicia: yeah. he helped develop Harmonix the company behind it. He’s a clarinet player.
Mike D: …
Alicia: in fact, just recently he was interviewed about the upcoming ROCK BAND game and…. really funny story… the interviewers brought clothes with them for him to wear so that during the interview he’d look “cooler.” Apparently he’s wearing a sequence Ozzy Osborn shirt. ha ha! Which is extra hilarious because normally he wears khakis and button up shirts.
Her story was so much better than mine.
Sunday I worked on a paper for a bit and then hit up ROLLER DERBY in CT. I think that this bout goes down as the most exciting ever. I can’t wait to write a review. It’ll probably be up in the next few days in the features section. Keep an eye out for it.
