Wonderfully under productive Saturday

I didn’t do any work today. I think over 21 days straight (a couple were only around 4 hours) is enough, and I needed some down time.

I did manage to give my new drums a satisfactory tuning, and spent a couple hours disassembling my bass pedal while trying to figure out how to adjust the throw. You’d think they would include some instructions. This helped.

I also found some good video lessons to start working on. I need to set a goal for myself.
Also, I took a nap.

On a more somber note, I learned that my primary and junior high band director/music teacher died today. He was a great brass player, and was truly passionate about teaching kids about music. He had such a profound effect on my life. He really helped nurture in me an absolute passion for music.

Ironically, the last time I saw him was 16 years ago, almost to the day, at a funeral – my father’s
Rest in peace, Mr. Howcroft. You too, Dad.

MSDN Subscription

Yay! I got an MSDN subscription this week at work. I’m easily entertained.
