It’s been a good music week.
First, I enjoyed putting this mix together. It spawned at least two offspring. When way leads to way, it’s a sign of doing the right thing creatively.
Second, I went on a music adventure. Recently there was an event at the library on the campus. I learned that not only do I have access to several streaming music databases, but I was educated on how to browse effectively through the catalog for physical media as well. In my hunting about I discovered that the library still has a bunch of LPs. Further, these LPs are kept in a locked room. Beyond that, I am friends with the librarian who has access to this Restricted Section. So, yeah, I got to go to a restricted room in the library basement to paw through the LPs. I’m sad to say that of the two I was looking for, one (10th Century Chant in Proportional Rhythm) was not in the stacks as promised. So I set in motion “the kind of thing us librarians live for” said my friend. And I still checked out two albums. Rest assure, they are the good weird stuff.
Third! This week saw the publication of Volume 3 of Memoir Mixtapes and I am positively chuffed to say that a piece I am proud of was included! Please check it out. Along with this publication has come a renewed sense of interest in writing and a flood of new twitter followers (which I don’t think has ever happened to me before). I hope you will read this publication and enjoy it.
