Ringing in my Ears

I woke up at 5:30 this morning to see if I could start downloading my pre-ordered Radiohead album In Rainbows. Sure enough, I had to fetch the email from my junk mail, but then I was able to download the 48.4MB zip file quickly while my network was still sleeping. So far the album totally ROCKS. I get to listen to it all the way to the capital this afternoon while I drive Mariah there to pick up her mom.

I've been picking up my guitar lately to practice a gentle little Sarabande from Bach's first lute suite. It's been really great to get back into practicing. It was my first year university major, but I dropped it because my fingers and hands hurt too much. My ultimate goals for the guitar are to get my ARCT and to play all of Bach's Lute Suites.

A few months ago, Blaise started playing the trombone. He has a really good embouchure and terrific tone for someone his age. He plays for a couple minutes then gets bored and switches to something else. This morning he left the middle section out and started marching around the house tooting his horn.

Well at least he is not afraid to toot his own horn. I didn't know about your guitar accomplishments. That is great, and good you are picking it up again.

With you on guitar and Blaise on the trombone...I see a musical future in your family :-)

How do you go about downloading the CD?

I wish I could still like the trombone - but I don't.
