    I'm thinking about quitting my job. One more week like this and I definitely will.

    When the school year started, I asked my part-time sacker job for four work days a week, max. For Tuesday and Thursday, i needed my shifts to start later than 4 so i could get there from school on time, and for monday/wed/friday, 1pm. When I DO get those three days off, there's generally no real problem (other than procrastination) and the week tends to go well.

    Last week i worked 5 days, this week I'm working 6 days. Thursday my schedule starts at 3pm for the third week out of the five since the semester started when my last class is 30 minutes away and ends at 2:40 (assuming I don't change into work clothes or take a shower so I don't make the customers throw up). I have almost NO time to do homework and my grades are starting to suffer. I have a project to do in Psychology that my group and I don't have time to meet for, two online english classes that I am behind in, and I'm exhausted.

    Don't wait for a week to quit. Do it now. You'll feel much better about it.

    I haven't gotten a response.

    Edit: Last Friday I went in and clarified my schedule. They said 'okay' and made a note of it. That's why I'm waiting - im hoping this will be resolved next week

    Just received an email from Auntie Noob because she was reading something - she didn't say what, and was unsure as to what ^_^ meant.
    Have spent the last ten minutes writing an emoticon dictionary comprising what I think are the most commonly used emoticons online. Or at least emoticon groups so she can recognise variations on them.

    She's adapting fast.

    I also know for a fact her new internet box hasn't arrived yet, so she must have been paying attention when I told her how to find her network connections and then hopped onto a neighbour's briefly to show why you need to make your internet secure.

    I don't know how to feel about this.

    She's growing up so fast. *wipes a tear away*

    EDIT:
    I'm just hoping I don't have to explain certain acronyms to her. I get in trouble for saying "Damn!" around the house and to my siblings, I don't want to have to tell my aunt what GTFO etc. mean!

    Huh. I'm surprised there wasn't a readymade easily found one online.

    If she asks about the acronyms you might just have to foist one of them off on her and flee like Zoidberg.

    Mooncat, you're making me think of a mixture of Dwarf Fortress and Adventure Time now.

    It's kinda weird.

    Not fully mine in all fairness, it's just the result of being a second generation audiophile, fourth generation musically-inclined. The music room is product of my father soundproofing a room for his use as office in which he put his drum kit and his keyboards and synthesiser; it also happened that he used to have a roller-derby disco before he had to sell his share due to risking his university permanency due to having to manage the disco and study for law school, his business partner also decided to sell alongside him and my father got to keep both the mixing equipment (since he was the only one who knew how to use it and because he had paid the greater share of it) and the speakers [Concert Grade !JBL] (which the person renting to them actually sold at about 10$ since they had rented them for so long they had paid the buying price around thrice and he felt bad for the young men).

    With time he managed to build a rack of equipment in between mixers, recorders for VHS, Tape, CDs, and vinyl (and later DVD, and finally just skipping medium to direct to digital). And of course all of the wiring needed for it and accesories, for... well, everything, including several sets of pedals for keyboards and drum kits, the pedals for the guitar and the bass, amplifiers, etc. He never recorded however, and never got to fully use the synths or the keyboards because he was more of a percussionist and because he learnt accordion, not piano, meaning his basses are... not very mobile; so he never had enough time or energy to record, the use of the room being mainly musical reproduction and the most amazing experience ever in concert watching.

    Enter his young first-born which loves both everything digital and everything musical. I myself have a Yamaha Clavinova (which I update every certain time lapse to a newer model thanks to Yamaha's payment plans and trading in payment options) which has an inbuilt mixing console and midi recording and a UltraNova synth which has vocoding, mixing and general synth feature; with my father help we set it up in my room and built a surround system connected to a centralised mixer. When recording I either set everything up in my room including the laptop which gets the mixer's output or I split recording into two floors, or I just take the UltraNova to the music room and use his keyboards instead of my clavinova. For most recordings I can do fine in my room except when they involve wind instruments or non-synth strings because I need a proper mic set-up for those.

    At times I borrow his sets of pedals and build myself a "Hammond-esque", where the synth is set to playing an organ with the touch setting (which is a fancy way of saying the nobs on the top) programmed to emulate the draw-bars, the pedals linked to his synth set to producing organ bass and my clavinova being set to the usual pre-made loop running of the Hammond on the left and the right set to the proper Organ sound. Effectively making a temporal Hammond (not that it can't make other organs, most organ anatomy's can be reproduced with this setting.)
    Fabulouser and fabulouser. The picture in my mind is a kind of Mad Musician's laboratory. Your techne to be able to fool around with all that technology is another skill I admire, as I have no craft in that area myself.

    What are thy music creation tools? A Grand Piano if not a double tailed one, I presume?
    I wish! I have a mediocre upright inherited from my parents, since none of my siblings play. Its tone is too bright and the keys are too stiff.

    This is an example of my playing. I haven't had it tuned since the spring. Please be kind, I am an amateur ;_____;
    Also I recorded it with a cucumber, so the sound is not fantastic


    I love your description of playing the organ [I didn't quote it for brevity's sake]. Yes, that is the experience I want -- that whole-body experience of the sound.

    My hometown isn't all too bad, seeing how it has lots of history and a fairly good building planning over the ages based around the idea that no house should reach over the treetops. Sadly, that's all changing in the last few years.

    My dream would be to move out to a lagom large house on the countryside but close to the city. It should preferably lie next to a lake where I can house a seaplane and do watery stuff, and also have high-speed internet access, because I'm a computer guy after all. Also, it'd have a tower. I love towers. And the tower would be built from natural stone and have ivy growing up along its walls.
    A lovely dream. May you have it one day. I looked up the word lagom just now, too. A neat concept to reify in a single word.

    I enjoy the idea that no house should reach above the treetops. When I picture a city in Sweden, I imagine a mixture of cottagey-quaint and clean, minimalist modern. Is it so? I suppose my idea of Sweden comes mostly from the aesthetics of IKEA, since National Geographic tends to show its nature more than its urban; I apologize if it's an unwanted stereotype!

    *hugs again* Thank you, sötnos.

    It's kinda weird.
    It sounds like you might enjoy the adventures of Boss Knight.

    In that vein, a case could be made that I actively avoid being social.

    That's the way I normally end up when recording considering cabling starts crossing around me and I usually end up forming a circle between miscellaneous instruments and backed against a semicircle of synths.

    As for technology I find manuals to be an interesting reading. The clavinova came with a full manual on using the internal mixer and midi recording (which is how I produce the final versions of sheet music seeing as the paper I write on is normally covered in many and much varied substances such as sulphur, blood and/or pepsi), the Ultranova has a book on its own on what sound IS, how waves work, wave patterns and actual physics to the point I had to sit down with a school teacher to figure out how to actually synthesise sounds (which was in the second part of the manual). Normally everything ends up being in the manual, or I can ask my father about. The only thing where I had to study independently was for recording to a digital medium with which Audacity community was incredibly helpful.

    There is no such thing as a mediocre piano, it's just one that needs to find its true sound. It may not be the ideal one for classical, but playing Bossa or Ragtime in it would be extremely appropriate.

    As for stiffness it's a dual edged sword but I think time does manage to get rid of it, or of the feeling due to custom.

    Has a luthier checked it? Sometimes the brightness is product of bad string tensing. Alternatively the Una Corda could help, though I'm not sure it works the same as I recall in uprights.

    That's quite a fine cucumber seeing as the sound is rather good considering it also has video feed.

    Your playing is quite energetic and more forceful than the average, though the stiffness might be responsible for the second part; quite good, and not amateurish at all.

    My only commentary would be in relation to a feeling of stiffness in the dynamics that transmit to the piece, it feels as if it was somewhat mechanised and the consonance between right and left hand was forced rather than arising from the piece's own movement. I think that it could be the product of trying to fit into the tempo which makes each hand's sound seem less independent which is partially how I normally have heard the piece.

    This also could be a factor of going directly to the fugue since the prelude sometimes puts the player in a given mood which is difficult to shake off, and me never having heard the fugue "in vacus" would be conditioned to expect it in the previous atmosphere.

    On the other hand Bach did intend most of the DWK to be an exercise book, so a rigorous interpretation is also perfectly valid and the rigidity intentional in conveying the feeling of piece meant to be practised and played and not merely interpreted.

    The alternative is looking for a colonial town with a church which has an organ in disuse and hope you can finish the piece before they decide that the organ is likely to collapse the church due to trembling.
