Got What I Came For

A very busy few last months have culminated in a huge success at my first grad school interview. I still have a few more interviews to go on - but without any hesitation I can confidently say that (baring any horrible tragedy) I will be working towards a Ph.d in the not so distant future.

F'n fantastic - now I just need to finish up my undergrad, which is much harder now that I can taste the freedom of the other side. Also I found out you can get some kickass microscopes from eBay for ridiculous prices.

A lot of other stuff happened - but I'm trying to to keep a Positive Mental Attitude so I'll hold off on the narrative.

Stand out tracks; deadmau5's "Hi Friend!" which is the titular feature of the show and served as a bolster for the research year, as after all it was what I came here for. (And look where that got me!). Esg - Dance is an tight low-fi rocker which easily slips into my top 100. A wild feat for an album cut in '83. I spent a lot of time listening to music without words as they often distract me if they are either 1) good lyrics, 2) novel lyrics, or 3) the reason for the songs existence. Not much of this lyricless music made the cut but Stillway and Bonham's "Insomniac Sunrise" certainly demanded a place on the playlist.*

If you ever wonder what Ram Dass would have put out if he'd gone into cybernetic theory instead of eastern mysticism this is your answer. And it is good (if you like this kind of thing).

*Really short episode this time since the hosting company Libsyn has moved to a new platform and some of my dedicated space is presently occupied. Regular Size show next month (or thee months from now. Whatever.)
