drpaisley: (siegfried attacks!)
Greetings, everyone! Hope you all survived the exceedingly rare dual magicks of Thanksgivukkah. Whether you're still in a food coma, or roaming the dark, dank, smoke-filled, body-strewn retail aisles, may your day be full of fun and entertainment. Me, I have to go to work, so fuck a lot of that. Anyways, here's some tunes. I am so thankful for the digital music revolution, despite the evil mistakes of the Phillips Corporation, else so much great (and also very, very bad) music would be lost forever.


1) Take Care The Road You Choose, Richard Thompson

2) Can't You Hear Me Knocking, Rolling Stones

3) Some Are Lakes, Land Of Talk

4) 1997 (Doctor Rosen Rosen REMIX), Department of Eagles

13) The End, The Doors (Apocalypse Now - Waiting For The Sun Tour)


The weekend will revolve around more packing and cleaning of the Belfry and the house below it as we continue the process of preparing to get this place clean enough to sell, and find a place to move to. At least the rest of the Jayhawks' games this weekend will be on real tv networks (pro tip: if you're going to name your network AXS, you should make some effort to make it, you know, accessible. Just sayin'). Onward.

After a thrilling week that was highlighted by spending five hours in the ER with Rohanna (good news, not her appendix; bad news, possible chronic bowel pain), time for another round of spin the iTunes (over 35K songs and growing)!

Life continues to be a thing, full of thing-like stuff. Now the weekend, and more things, like the final Big XII Tournament with this set of teams. And stuff. Saturday night/Sunday morning we Spring Forward, and Sunday night (11.59p PDT) is the deadline for nominating for the Hugo Awards (and the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer). Onward!

Things have been busy at work the past couple of weeks, mainly with stuff for the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art here in KC. We do the large wall graphics and informational signs for special exhibits there. Last week saw the opening of a special display of "The Original Rules of Basket Ball," which wiill be running through May 29. It's free, but requires timed tickets.

This week has seen the output of materials for an upcoming exhibit of the three pieces of Monet's "Water Lilies" triptych, together again for the first time in years and years. This exhibit focuses on the 11-year long process of the creation of these pieces, using a variety of forensic methods to reveal the details hidden under the layers of paint. This exhibit will run from April 9 through August 27, and will cost $8. And both will be running during ConQuesT! Let's celebrate with some tunes.


1) New York City, Cub

2) Meet Your Rock Star, ToToM (N.E.R.D. - Rock Star + Nine Inch Nails - Meet your Master)

12) Suspicious Minds, The Flaming Lips

13) M, The Cure (Palais Theatre, Melbourne, Australia)


Busy weekend, what with the Big 12 Tournament going on. And more importantly, tomorrow the replacement for this ancient computer will arrive. It's done its job well overall, but the time has come to upgrade. I'll be going from this G4 dual 450 MHz machine to an 8-core twin 2.8 GHz speed demon. I am considering installing a seat belt on my chair.

Another week in the books. Much of work time spent on materials for a special display of "The Original Rules of Basket Ball" by James Naismith, which wiil be on display at the Nelson-Atkins Museum here in KC starting this weekend. We seem to be getting more work in, though in random bunches rather than a consistent supply. Still not enough to be going back to fulltime, alas.

And I'm busily putting together the first draft of Progress Report #4 for Renovation, this year's Worldcon. How does this keep happening to me? Oh, right, I keep saying "yes" when people ask me to do stuff like that (thanks, Tim!). At least I'm not doing the ConQuesT Program Book this year. Here's some music to celebrate the announcement that A Dance With Dragons will hit the bookstores on July 12, 2011. George said it in the internet, it must be true!

I have actually caught parts of two Royals spring training games on MLB, and we won both! Does this mean we won't suck this year? Probably not. But they just might be better than most people think. I'l settle for over 70 wins this year.

I will be taking a brief break from the grindstone to watch KU beat MU Saturday (11a start? What are you thinking, CBS? Barely enough time to wake up and grab a beer!) Rock Chalk!

Last night the lovely and talented Audrey Hitchcock arrived for a weekend stay. She's appearing at a woo-woo festival at the Best Western at Rainbow and Southwest Boulevard Saturday and Sunday, so if you need a quality, medical-grade therapeutic massage, go see her there. She already helped me out by examining my damaged little finger and popping the top joint back into place. Still hurts, but might actually heal properly.

Big activity this weekend will be checking out the Eat Local Farmers Expo, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Shawnee Civic Centre, 13817 Johnson Drive. Tonight, of course, we'll be watching KU defeat Michigan State on the way to another national championship.
