I keep reading about everyone watching the eclipse last night. I thought I missed an astronomical event.
RT @nancygandhi: Silence is so rare, it has become a presence, rather than an absence. I miss it, when I remember that it exists.
Re-scoring an old (1853) version of the Star Spangled Banner I found for modern band. Originally Sax choir, Eb Trumpet, Baritone, Tubas #fb
I’ll be a few minutes late. Sorry.
Got GoogVox set in a way that it’ll actually be well worth the hassle. Would be better on an Android phone, but that will have to wait. #fb
@Birdiebot sorry. Not this time. We’re trying to get rid of stuff! :)
Rio Americano band room is an oven!! But at least we have 5 horns today. #fb
Garage Reclaimation Project day 46:It appears that below a certain strata of boxes is solid concrete. Just when success seemed so close. #fb
@rachelglassgrdn Starbuck’s wifi is pretty simple and free right now. I think this is their campaign to make me feel not special.
is printing old marches for Summer Band tomorrow. Thanks Jeremie for the public domain website! #fb
@RickJamez no worries, it’s just the Mob.
Well, it’s taken me 5 years, but my 30GB iPod is now full and I’ve got about 3GB of songs to add still… #fb
just found a bunch of jazz CDs… uploading to iPod / MusicMonkey
I think today I’m going to pretend that I enjoy heat. I will not spontaneously combust. I will not spontaneously combust.
is shuffling boxes and creating emptiness.
This has been a very unproductive, yet wonderfully relaxing day of movies on Netflix following the Citrus Heights parade. Ah, Summer.
just watched “The Interpreter” with Nicole Kidman. Pretty good thriller.
Ready to march! - http://moby.to/lgg6zi
Am now awake for some kind of parade or something that I’m apparently going to. I think it’s still yesterday.
watching Alice in Wonderland. Who is it that this actress looks like? I can’t quite place the resemblance.
just finished playing Czech horn duets with @tubamom (we transposed to Eb, ftr)
at Kinko’s getting Susie’s parade music laminated.
trying to figure out some horn/tuba duets.
Hair cut by the same lady that did No. 4’s. Remembered her name & said she’d been practicing. Impressive!

on to post-Summer Band lunch with Alissa Aune at Beach Hut…
Time out. - http://moby.to/50p3rr
leaving for Summer Band at Bear River. Hope to see many of you there!
with all this talk of iPhone 4, I would really like an HTC Evo - just to set things straight. And in case anyone would like to give me one.
on the way to band practice with @tubamom at Rio Americano HS.
Clean, Practice, Facebook, Clean, Practice, Facebook…
On my way back to Auburn for brass quintet rehearsal.
RT @rachelglassgrdn: Ok the bassoon shook my house, but nothing like a tuba, Yonkers!
is at the Nugget Market for salad bar & FRS drink. :D
@Birdiebot Hurray for Tuba

@BirdieBot Happy Birthday!
BRHS Summer Band starts today! 10 - Noon. … so WAKE UP!!!
at 4th of July Community Concert Band rehearsal.
A fascinatedly bewildered neighbor kid came to the door as I practiced my horn. I played Luke Skywalker’s theme & he left smiling.
At Green Acres, picking out a rose plant for Father’s Day.
Vacation’s over. Productivity begins now.

wonders what the best way to get 36 oz of coffee & milk out of the car carpet is.
Just treated to breakfast in bed (french toast!). Thanks girls!
RT @bxchen: Plants exist for cats to eat them and puke out the leaves so you can buy expensive carpet cleaner. It’s the circle of life
playing Balderdash with the fam.
Lot’s of progress taking territory in the garage today. I’ve seen parts of the floor now that I was not aware existed.
Ok, the plan is garage, then back yard, then horn. We should seriously have the Summer in February though so it wouldn’t be so warm.
Ah, the first Friday of Summer… the weekend is almost here!
@klaudiiih that’s too bad that he’s getting rid of it. They have such a great sound. I’d love to get one some day.
@klaudiiih He plays the organ?
I need to get a job or something. The Summer really wrecks havoc on my sleep.
Our girls discovered Mystery Science Theater 3000 tonight. Thought they were going to bust a gut! It was “The Crawling Eye” btw.
@NikkiDarko I’m trying to figure out how to get twitter to update myspace - opposite of you. How did you do it?
The World Champion Los Angeles Lakers - 4, The Eastern Conference Champion Boston Celtics - 3. Great game and great series!
Fisher for three!
@robby hey can you help me out with your TwitterSync app?
things are starting to turn purple and gold around here…
btw, chainsaws are fun.
has wild thorny Honey Locust trees trying to take over the backyard. But I will best them.
emptying out boxes and finding my garage.
is working out a system for the Summer, because that’s just what I do.
Luck is not chance, it’s toil. Fortune’s expensive smile is earned. Emily Dickinson #quote
anyone have an old keyboard that would work with a Mac IIsi? … Hmmm, maybe there’s one in the band room.
is relieved to have made the grade.
Gasol is close to a triple-double tonight. Boring game, though. At least by the numbers.
@stumpy6653 I’m stuck doing grades, so “watching” the game through nba.com’s auto update board. Game 7 is the one to watch, anyway.
just stupidly cost myself about an hour of work w/ a tragic “non-saved work” incident. Now fixing it & listening to the Dave Holland Octet.
listening to Gary Numan and slowly creeping away from the window as the sun invades my sanctuary.
Grades due tomorrow. Online grading website down. Working at the local purveyor of the bean to finish grades on Excel. On iPod: Mahler 3.
@Yelah214 I think your smie is just lovely the way it is.
listening to Chris Potter’s latest stuff on ArtistShare http://bit.ly/cn0MBK
Grading papers and listening to Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps (Bernstein/Israel).
is craving some Stravinsky.
is already loving Summer Vacation - the nexus of relaxation and productivity.
@gb1191 you need to get flash for Chrome. That is an easy, safe download. Then everything will work.
@klaudiiih I loved that movie.
1st day of Summer.
after 17 graduation ceremonies now, I’ve got to say that the speeches tonight were quite excellent. Well done Renwick, Logue, and Crossen.
@gb1191 Yes, Chrome is way faster and generally better. Loved Firefox. Looove Chrome.
The Band. - http://moby.to/7kp8ql
Bear River graduation under way. - http://moby.to/y3qe5p
Wind, wind, go away. Blow over all of the music stands at graduation another day.
@birdiebot I’m not going to make 9:30, sorry, but I’m on my way.
No more school, but heading up the hill for a day of rehearsal, cleaning, grading, & graduation. Oh, and coffee.
Pause on grading. It’s LakerTime!
@Birdiebot I was planning on about 10. 9:30 is probably do-able.
All classes finished for the year! (except for the Band final - which is playing for Graduation tomorrow evening). S u m m e r ? ? :)
@stumpy6653 I heard RH was Gladiator in tights. Yes?
@gb1191 ah, that’s nothing. Just wait for Algebra 3!
One more final + graduation. Now let the grading marathon begin!

8 1/2 hours today at Carmichael Park for the Community Band Festival. Lot’s of fun, friends, and great music!
@kerrymarsh When I read you were doing “I’m Hip” my brain read “What is Hip?” and rejoiced heartily. A mash up would be sweet!
leaving for Carmichael Park & 8 straight hours of concert band music on a beautiful day. Come join us. Susie plays at Noon. I play at 3 & 5.
great job tonight Bear River Bands - I’ll see you at the BBQ tomorrow!! (btw, macaroni painting tomorrow from 10:30 onward if you can help)
@stumpy6653 you do that from your computer.
@stumpy6653 you need a picture.
@Yelah214 yeah. Seems like a good idea. I’ve been working on the program for two days straight. Just finished and sent off to Kinko’s.zzzz
I am very, very tired.
