Life by Misadventure

Umu nun, umu!

wrong sound

I like Neil Young and James Taylor. They're great. But I wish I sounded more like Jim Croce. He was a genius with a voice that fit various styles.

Li'l Patches is dying


Li'l Patches, my favorite guitar, is falling apart. This fact is the origin of its name, but it has gotten much worse recently.

The story of Li'l PatchesCollapse )

Right now, I got it in a drop D7 tuning to reduce string tension. I'm not really good with open tunings. The action is way too low for good slide playing. sigh

Today, I sang in Russian for an Orthodox-ish Christmas party.

Сегодня я спел по-русски. Маленкой елочке холодно зимой...

Hodiaŭ estas Esperanto-Tago. Mi ne scias, kion diri pri tio.

Mi pendigis verdstelan flagon en mia laborejo. Kunlaborantoj taksis min stranga.

Mi estas Esperantisto ekde 1994. Sen Esperanto, mia vivo vere estus tre malsimila. Mi jam ne ĝuas varbi, sed mi ankoraŭ feliĉas, kiam oni eklernas la lingvon.

Parenteze, mi esperas registri novan kantaron en Esperanto kun myra_musing.

Today is Esperanto Day. I don't know what to say about it.

I hung a green star flag at my office. My coworkers think I'm weird.

I've been an Esperantist since 1994. Without Esperanto, my life truly would be very different. I no longer enjoy recruiting people, but I'm still happy when people try learning the language.

By the way, I hope to record a new collection of songs in Esperanto with myra_musing.

It's kinda sad to read this now:

back to Forth

Recently, I have become somewhat disillusioned with the .NET Framework. It seems to be exploding into a disparate mass of classes and syntaxes and what-all. So, I've decided to take a bit of a break to look back at simpler times.
