Today is my Xanga’s 250th day. That’s right, it’s the “quarter mille”.
I finally did my laundry today. I’ve been keeping myself busy enough that I have been way behind.
For my student government position I often administer surveys to various groups of students. The other day I made three different mockups of a single survey I’m about to give to the entire student body. I presented these mockups to my Human Factors: Interface Design class to let the students test them out. I learned quite a lot from the process, and now I think the survey should be quite easy to take (once I implement the best suggestions from the class).
This monday, the Data Destruction Tour is coming to Boston. The Data Destruction Tour is the only tour I know of that specializes in the tiny little subgenre of music known as lofi or 8bit or chiptunes or gamemusic or about a million other things. The idea is to use 1980s computer technology or video game systems or similar sounding synthesis techniques to make music. Hear some at micromusic.net. I have considered burning a few CDs of a some songs I have written in this style and giving them around to the people involved to sorta jab myself into the scene a bit.
