You may be shocked to hear this, but our loudest, complainingest, pain in the ass band parents are the ones who won’t ever get off their asses tofundraise.

The projected subtitles are called “supertitles,” and they are not included in this performance. The ballet company told the patrons that this is an “all ages” production. There is a children’s chorus that sings. I can assure you that most people have no idea what is actually being sung.

The pre-concert lecture is going on right now. I think I’ll go out there and share this with the audience. Infinitely more interesting than what the musicologist is prattling in about.

Yeah, the lyrics are pretty wild. Some ancient Latin text or something, at least in some ancient dialect. The influence of that piece is far-reaching, especially in movie music. Listen to the soundtrack of the original Conan movie. That’s one of my all-time favorite scores.

I usually take my laptop so I can back up my camera to it, as well as an external drive. I’m not taking my cameras on this trip, and any pictures I take will be with my phone, which will sync to the iPad. I think I’m talking myself into it...

Starbucks is a terrible place to get a cup of coffee. But with enough steamed milk in it, it’s passable. I usually drink it black. But Sbx was convenient. Never heard of Peets.

Then go buy a lottery ticket. Nobody can have that much bad luck. You’re due for some good luck.

I almost went to grad school there. I ended up going elsewhere, and things worked out well in the long run, but I think I would have enjoyed it there.

I’m going to NYC for a long weekend in December, and I’m thinking of taking this instead of my laptop. It would be easier on the plane, and the battery life is significantly better.

Michigan-place of my birth (Ann Arbor, 1966. Yes, my dad was going to U of M).
