Fun with time signatures

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 01:31:39 +0000

Because who doesn’t want to play an etude that switches between 7/8 and 4/4 every measure? (Philip Glass, Etude #2. Book of Glass’s etudes arrived from Amazon yesterday. This will be fun.)

It’s a cruel jest to say to a bootless man that he ought to lift himself by his own bootstraps

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 14:50:24 +0000

This little two-minute snippet of interview from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. summarizes an explanation of racist systems and a case for systemic reparations better than pretty much anything else I’ve heard. Worth considering. “Now I believe we ought to do all we can and seek to lift ourselves by our own bootstraps… but it’s […]

What will happen with the children of post-evangelicals?

Tue, 03 Apr 2018 21:28:23 +0000

Richard Beck has an insightful piece up on a topic that’s had me thinking. While he’s a decade older and from a different denominational background than I am, he and I have traveled a similar path from a strict conservative Christianity into a progressive post-evangelicalism. But what impact, he asks, does this have on our […]

Opening Day

Some of my favorite words: Opening Day for Major League Baseball. The Cubs started on the road but started the season right with a win!

Farewell, Facebook

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 15:47:33 +0000

I just posted this to Facebook: So let’s review what we’ve learned about Facebook in the past couple of weeks: They allowed an app to do mass scraping of user data, including the data of friends of app users, and then didn’t reveal that information disclosure for years afterward. The combination of that user data, […]

Is it the beard?

I’ve written before about my Swedish Doppelganger – the botanist Carl Skottsberg in his younger years, at least according to my sister-in-law. Yesterday I was alerted to another one. Information on this alleged doppelganger comes to me from an older lady at church. She approached me yesterday to say that she watches the Jimmy Swaggart […]

Found Tonight

The Hamilton / Dear Evan Hanson mashup we didn’t know we needed until it came out… so good.

Finished reading: 2018, part two

Books I’ve read over the past month or so: A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles An utterly charming novel about a Russian nobleman confined to hotel “house arrest” after the 1917 revolution. His adventures interacting with hotel staff (which he soon becomes) and guests are full of wit and grace and humor. I don’t […]

Birthday week!

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 20:53:12 +0000

Today at our house we enter Birthday Week: three of the five of our family members celebrate a birthday between now and next Tuesday. Today it’s Addie entering her last pre-teen year. Tomorrow it’s me leaving 40 behind. Next week KP starts her last year with a single digit age. Man oh man, time flies.

Geek dad status, part 2

Tonight I introduced my daughters to Weird Al, and now daughter #2 insists she needs to listen to all his music. Now she’s not gonna fully get all the parodies…. but how can you not appreciate a song like this?
