It’s my birthday today, so I’m going to keep this short. It’s not the only reason to celebrate, though.
For one thing, my term is officially finished. I turned in the last of my grading on Thursday, which means I can focus more on my thesis papers. Engineering Ethics was a lot of fun to TA, and it was great to see how students who don’t come from a philosophy background look at and evaluate ethical theories. I’m really excited to get to work on my prospectuses finally, and put the notes I have into some coherent proposals.
It’s been a great week musically as well. I played two sets at the Little Bean Coffee Bar on Monday night, and Argyle Speedo (which I’m now an actual member of) had our first gig on Thursday night at a party to launch People Behaving Badly, the latest issue of the New Quarterly. We’re already planning our next one, so I’ll keep you posted on that.
Friday night was ridiculously busy, between the art party at Globe Studios, an amazing artist space. It’s right in my neighborhood, and I had no idea it was there. There were a lot of amazing pieces showing, and I can’t wait to see what they’re doing next. Then it was over to Carbon Computing for iHeART Apple, an exhibition by Jennifer Gough featuring some interesting paintings and a lot of pieces made out of old Mac circuit boards. Finally, I was off to Chainsaw for the launch of my friend TJ’s Dear Photograph book and some karaoke.
Finally, it’s been an awesome week for Headshots from the Heart. We have a lot of auction sponsors coming in, and our new Loot page doesn’t begin to cover it. Check it out, and help us out by pledging your support. For more information about it, you can also find us on Facebook and on Twitter.
Concept Crucible this week heralds the return of Pulp Philosophy and the beginning of substitution rules in logic, and TPK has a new series which combines GMing and cooking (two very wonderful worlds). The wiki update for the week is Arkonia, from the meta-setting. On top of all of that, you can check out this month’s episode of the Educated Imagination podcast, where we introduce our new host and talk about the guitar, and my introduction post over at Headshots from the Heart.
