Got an email from Jeff (DT) yesterday. Apparently the cd place screwed them and their cds won’t be ready by tomorrow night. What they are going to do instead is give everyone that pays their 10 dollars a demo cd with 3 songs from the album, and then they will mail the cds when they come in next week. So, for everyone I’m getting the cd for…I’ll still order it for you, but it won’t be ready till …next weekend..
Got some great sky shots right before the rain started pouring down last sunday.
jammed with marcelo and eric, from delaware and worthington (respectively) yesterday. I think they have an interesting sound and I look forward to the next practice.
I found out yesterday that B will be moving to San Antonio Texas in July. That should be interesting, maybe he’ll meet Mr. Robinson.
I was jumping all over B the other day about not checking my site often enough and I realized that I hadn’t checked his in a while either. Click here (link is no longer valid) to visit his website. I’m organizing an army of old (and newer) friends to come with us to see DT next saturday. Unfortunately, B will not be with us. He informed me that his 12 year old car has 300,000 miles, so I understand. Your presence will be missed my friend. All is not lost however, as B is getting a new (1999) car in a few months.

I talked to the history of art department today and found out that I can finish the one class left for my history of art minor over the summer. They are only offering two grad level courses this summer, but I can take either one to complete the minor. I think modern painting and sculpture would be more interesting, but I think I’m going to take the class on ancient egyptian art, because I know the professor. That partially solves the problem with my classes in the summer, at least now I’m half-time instead of part-time. However, I still have to figure out how to graduate in march due to the time conflict of art classes. I will need to fit one more class on next winter quarter, but the time conflicts with the others I’m taking. So, what I’m going to try and do is see if there are any painting and drawing professors staying here over the summer. If somebody is, I’ll ask them if I can do an independent study for 5 credits, thus freeing that part of next winters requirement and adding credits to summer so I’m still full time.
Note (june 2004): The art history department would later deny me the art history minor after I had taken all the classes because it was in the same college as my major
Ok, things just keep getting better and better for me… The master schedule for SU03 and AU03 has come out, and it doesn’t have enough classes offered for me to graduate in December. So….(this is where I let out a blood curdling scream)…I won’t graduate till my 23rd birthday! The awful part is that I’ll already be done with EVERYTHING else even my business minor…so I’ll have three quarters of 12 credits or less (27 credit hours spread over three quarters). What I’m hoping is that as scheduling day draws near, more classes will open up, or that I can go into the art office and wheel and deal something…but we shall see.
For all you DT fans, I got an email from Jeff (guitar) today about the show and Sevrul. So, here it (severely edited down the original) is:
CDs are going to be $10 and the cover is $5 for 21 and over and $7 for everyone else. we thought about not charging at the door, but we are in so much debt right now we need as much cash as we can get. ya know?
as far as sevrul goes: we’ve been writing songs for a while now…we are going to release a 4 or 5 song “demo” type cd on the day of DT’s cd release. we are going to do a full-length in my studio shortly after DT’s show is out of the way
To: Andrew Long From: Department of Art
The faculty of the Department of Art has completed its review of materials submitted by all the applicants to our graduate program. Unfortunately, you were not recommended for admission to our graduate program in Painting/Drawing for 2003-2004. There were many qualified applicants for a limited number of spaces, and it was very difficult to make our selections.
Well, there goes $30…
Celeste’s birthday was yesterday, and it went pretty uneventful, but never fear, she has a big surprise coming this weekend.
I keep listening to the new flaming lips disc. Even though Byron can’t make it (he is certain his car would probably never speak to him again), I think I might go with Celeste anyway (she is unfamiliar with their work). I tried to convince mr. palmer to come up…we’ll see.
I have a some bad news for myself and Mr. Montezzzz, mom informed me that there are no viable conferences to attend this summer on the west coast. Sorry dude…but you never came here either like you said were going to…
Ironically, Byron might be stationed out there in 2004 and beyond for his AF duties, so I’ll have two chums to fly out and see (before moving)…
I found out that “the voodoo” is actually the new name for Ron’s Crossroads. I’ve been there with both jeremy and clifford, so its a familiar place. It also happens to be just under ten miles from Celeste’s sister’s apartment (a very convenient coincidence).
Went to my parents house for my birthday. I got some nice loot, but the thing I’m most excited about is some new shoes! Some of you probably know that I’ve been wearing the same pairs of shoes since high school (which, since I’m about to graduate from college, means its been a long time). I still couldn’t find anything that I particularly liked in the running shoe section, so I got some decent looking vans and a bland (which in this case = good) pair of new balance running shoes.
