A friend tagged me with this one on Facebook. I know I’ve done ones similar to this before, but it’s been a long time. We’ll see what this scares out of the woodwork.

I’ve been trying to figure out a good way to post about this for a long time, and I finally found it tonight.

I’ll begin this with the short story about a really good start. From last October to this past Thursday, I’ve lost a total of 23 pounds. That marked the completion of my first intermediate goal: losing 10% of my starting weight. The picture really says it:

I realize many of you won’t understand why I in particular find this so funny, but oh the details for those who do understand… I give you Song Leader Revolution.
After skimming this page, I’ve decided that the circle of fifths is the Smith chart of music.
If you’re a regular reader on this site and that comparison made sense to you, then your name is probably either Stephen Granade or John Wilson. Let me know if I missed anyone.

I drove down to Tuscaloosa tonight for my once-a-year-or-so IEEE meeting presentation on behalf of my employer. I’m not sure why, but I decided to wander into the student center tonight and have a look around at what has changed. The official USPS post office for the campus is located on the bottom floor.

Saw this one on Eyeore’s LJ and of course was compelled to steal it. 🙂

Your result for The Ultimate 80’s Pop Music Test…
80’s Music Encyclopedia
If this was a class in high school, you just broke the curve. I bet people come up to you all the time wanting answers to all of their 80’s music questions, after all, you know practically everything there is to know about the best decade in music! You, sir or ma’am, are the platinum standard when it comes to 80’s music knowledge. Congratulate yourself (and don’t let it go to your head)!

I do believe a week away was exactly what I needed, and now I’m back. 🙂
I’ll try to discipline myself over the next week or so to actually write about what I did while I was away. To start with though, here’s a quickie for you.
While we were in the “Sky Church” at the Experience Music Project, I started hearing a song that I immediately started humming along with but didn’t immediately place. Turns out it was an artist named Petra Haden doing an almost completely a cappella remake of Journey‘s “Don’t Stop Belivein’“. Turns out there was a competition for creating videos to go with that song and the others on the same compilation album, and YouTube has the video for this one. I don’t particularly like the spoken word portion. It doesn’t fit with the hyper-accuracy of the rest of the song, but I forgive it anyway. 🙂
BTW, this song was recorded for an album full of “guilty pleasure” songs.
