Brief update.

I bought a super expensive lawn mower. I also bought a "better" gas can (which isn't here yet.)

I have successfully failed at quiting taiko (more to come later on that.) Though part of it is I will be playing Black Ships again. Time will also tell on what that actually means.

I've started the doodles back up again (should be an update soon.)

I switched to soprano sax in school of honk (skipped last week, though) and got the sax repaired (the guy was supposed to give me a quote, but just did the work, so I spent more than I wanted.) I'm still struggling with the sax some. I will be selling my marching quints, which is sad. If they could only be lighter!

I made a "musical doodle" which was also an experiment in making a track and then syncing the video to the track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2e3hNYKFhvw

I reinstalled my laptop from 32-bit to 64-bit so I can run the android studio. I wanted to treat myself to a slick new laptop, but couldn't find any indication if ubuntu would work on it or not.

I ran out of steam for experimenting with dairy free ice cream flavors. This may mean that "empty pasture" flavor may never come to be.

In early June I had a very bad (and first) koto gig that made me reevaluate the difference between what I want and what I can get. I am waffling on selling my harp.

And for no reason, here is a video of a bird screaming into a cup. (it's cuter than it sounds.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRsfOGJ5lZg

i'm sorry about the quints but not surprised -- i am constantly amazed that anyone manages to not completely fuck themselves up playing strap-on drums. i'm still feeling the effects 2 weeks later of marching with an amp and my violin over my shoulder, and that was still lighter and more ergonomic than strap-on drums.

what was empty pasture supposed to be?

Empty pasture was supposed to be dairy-free chocolate chip lavendar. No cows, flowers and brown things. ;)

And yes, the decider was that reading on line that High School drummers have back issues from quints. I don't need another thing that messes up my body.

I'm thinking of maybe making a set of super light ones and seeing if I can't experiment with that. I don't need field levels of sound.
