December 30 - Arranging Things
John Bilotta and company stop by to drop off champagne for the New Year's fest -- they will go to the gig unencumbered via public transport. Do the day's updates, including including several reviews of Sebastian Currier's Piano Music CD on 21st-Century Music, plus pdf for page 23 Street Songs, and beginning the composition of Psalm 83 "Keep Not Thou Silence", after Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire: VIII Nacht.
Head out in waxing light
across town, to reunite Harriet with her well-maintained vehicle,
then loop around on errands,
including picking up more opera videos at the library,
as the sky
recovers. More ancilliary library re-organization later, finishing an accounting of all 50 U.S. States and most of the Canadian provinces on the Facebook Timeline map. Also note with interest that many others are switching over to the new FB look, and am intrigued by the places that various folks have been, including Be'eri Moalem and Lo Ravel. Make inquiries as to the purchase of an old slide projector -- perhaps a way to deal with many of these old boxed-up shots, which are still in impressive condition... Also close to having a final program for tomorrow, plus finish off re-perusing
The Piedmont (still debriefing from the trip east in October)...
