Two things I omitted from yesterday's post:
- You have almost a year to learn your part for Messiah sing-alongs. This is one of the strangest learning aids I've heard -- pick your part (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) and the chorus. You'll hear your part on the left channel and the rest on the right. The strange thing is it's all MIDI (I think). If you are the book-learnin' music-readin' type, you can follow the score. Here's Beethoven's take on it.
- After coveting the computer science departments nixie clock for a couple of years, I decided to order my own. That new dishwasher will have to wait.
