Thar She Blows!

This blog gets it's name from my love of Moby Dick and my geographic location. It's layered, dawg.

Sadly, I have not finished reading the damn thing. I'm looking at the book right now, and the mark is only three quarters through. Why I stopped just at the exciting part... I couldn't tell you if you asked (and you didn't, because you aren't reading this).

After Moby Dick... I think I'll tackle Joyce next. This blog is probably gonna get a lot more disjointed after awhile... I have a tendency to think like the book I'm reading.

Theremin Update: I can hold a note steady for about four bars before my breathing knocks it out of whack. Progress!

An Asshole is the Wind

It is motherfuckin' COLD here. Coming off of a nice mild streak makes it even worse.

My sunglasses froze to my face yesterday. I am not shitting you.

Also: People who live in America can now be spied on by their own government without any repercussions. You also cannot sue a telephone company that assisted the government in wiretapping back when it was illegal to do so.

Keep an eye out.

Going Deep

I actually don't have any news. I just don't like to have more than a week here without a post.

Worst blog ever? It's pretty close!

Horrible Noises from Nowhere

I got the theremin on Friday. Didn't need to build it as they sent me a whole one for the price of the kit (saved 50 bucks) by mistake. I'm not complaining, saves me a week trying to build the thing.

As for PLAYING it... dear God in Heaven, it's hard. I'm not classically trained, lack perfect pitch and generally possess none of the skills that would make learning how to play this thing any easier. For now, it's wailing horrible noise.

But I can see the places it can go, and that's a nice feeling.

Music From Nowhere

I ordered a Theremin kit, finally. Should be here sometime in the middle of the month, might take a week to build... gonna take a lot longer than that to learn, I can tell you that much.

Heck, I might start a whole new blog just for it. Would that be fun? I think it would be.

On another note, February sucks. Captain Obvious saves the day, right? Dun dun da daaaa!

That's it for now.

I Was Dead For A Bit

Yeah, haven't had much to say, so that explains the dearth of updates recently.

I'm thinking of buying a Theremin. Never heard one? YouTube it, they're fabulous little machines.

If I get the kit, this place will become a Building-a-Theremin blog for a bit. You two readers out there take note.

It's a me!
