Ah, spring. I am currently struggling to keep myself from going for a long body-busting run, because the weather is truly ideal for it. I pushed myself a bit too hard this week and now I am feeling that stress-decompression sickness, and I don't want to exacerbate it. Probably the solution will be to work on projects in an outdoorsish coffee shop. Some things:

The Tom 7 Entertainment System show at Belvedere's on March 27 is now confirmed. I'm playing with some noise-chiptune dudes "Bit Mummy", "X-Buster" and "William Sides Atari Party" from Chicago. I'm pretty much ready to go on this but there are a number of things I've dreamed of that could make the performance sweeter, and so I want to do some hacking to that end. Also I said I'd make a poster, though this one is nicely nostalgic.

SIGBOVIK is coming up rapidly, and I want to have a couple of papers/projects in this. I have one that's about half done now, and that I can probably finish in tomorrow's Program Committee meeting. If you have good ideas or papers rejected from seriouser/lesser conferences, acceptance is guaranteed for this peer-reviewed publication venue.

I think in two weeks I will be done paying off my student loans. I ordered a new guitar as a premature celebration.

After this I was gonna upload and post another video from our show last week, but my Earthlink DSL is fritzed right now and the online live service nonsensical, so I resort to posting this incomplete update from phone. :(

Acoustic with a built-in pickup. I need something that I can play live with that doesn't actively cause feedback problems, and my DX1 is showing a lot of fret wear and some age. I got this: http://seagullguitars.com/productartiststudio.htm
