These words are my diary screaming out loud

And this, my friends, is why DC local music is what it is.

I came across this blog in the Washington Post's Going Out Gurus column earlier, and it got me all excited, until I read the comments. Explains a lot...

Help support local music, no matter where you live.

An interesting perspective...

I saw this in a Washington Post online blog yesterday, and I found it quite an interesting perspective. Americans are infatuated with Queen Elizabeth II being here, but this reminds us that she represents exactly what we established this country against. My favorite quote of the whole thing came when discussing the movie "The Queen" from earlier this year: "America now believes that the Queen is a graceful, complex, dignified but still very human monarch with an admirable devotion to family and duty, instead of a little old lady who likes horses and never says anything much," writes Tim Dowling.

But then I read the comments. Those are pretty interesting too...

Some things never change...

For those of you that don't already know, I started my masters program a few weeks ago. This is week 5, I believe. I decided to go the online route, which may or may not have been a good idea, I'll let you know after this class is over. The positive side is that I can do one class at a time, which means I can pay for it myself without having to use tuition assistance (and thus owe the Navy) or take out any loans (and thus owe someone else). But on the negative, well, those of you who know me know that I am a world champion procrastinator. Hence the blogging right now instead of working... Its going alright so far though. I will likely end up having to take a couple hours on Saturday to just get the work done this week.

In other news, I'm slowly but surely getting more familiar with the DC local music scene, something I should have done AGES ago. There's a great scene around here, and not near enough folks pushing it. So I need to do my part.

Now on to the other method of procrastination- dinner time!
