I am such a slacker, I know. Haven't updated in forever. consider this an update for the moment. Been learning Buzz. A very nice and _free_ software synth. Check it out. Today's Penny Arcade was an instant classic.

Latest Concerts attended: Metallica, Korn, Kid Rock, missed Powerman 5000, System of a Down, and Ozzfest (Static-X, Soulfly, Pantera, just to name a few bands there) due to stupidness.

Latest Books read: too many to name, but a short list follows. Snowcrash by Neal Stephenson (a great book), Do Androids Dream of Eletric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick, A Farewell to Arms and For Whom the Bell Tolls, both by Ernest Hemingway, and I reread Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson, and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. I really like the way Stephenson writes, very fresh, very funny. Looking forward to reading The Diamond Age by him.

Been playing bass, living. later.
