Odds 'n' Ends

I didn’t write much of a day-to-day summary of what happened at TMEA. If you’re curious how Friday night went — complete with pictures — check out Daniel Montoya Jr.’s blog.

I ordered the Treo 650 a few weeks ago, and it should arrive tomorrow. Yay, gadgets! (Anybody wanna buy a semi-broken Treo 600? I’ll make you a deal…)

I’m heading up to Ithaca College on Tuesday morning for their performance that night of Redline Tango. I heard a recording of the group about a week ago, and they’re great. They’re also performing the piece in New York City on Saturday afternoon, as part of the CBDNA convention. If you’re coming to NY for the convention, drop me a note so we can get together for a tasty beverage.

I just read an interview with The Master, John Corigliano, on this month’s NewMusicBox. Check it out.

The NewSchlachtMans came over for dinner & movie night last night. Dinner was tasty, but the movie — boy howdy. If you have not seen “Can’t Stop The Music,” you must. We were all in hysterics, and I found myself laughing so hard I cried several times. It may be one of the all-time worst movies ever made. And I own it. (When the cast includes Steve Guttenburg, Olympic medalist Bruce Jenner, and The Village People, what’s not to love?!) My thanks to Newman, MJS, and AEJ for sitting through it with me. Those are true friends.
