ctwa 12, Brent Burnisher, lots

Many things to report! I will go in reverse chronological order!

I just came back from the last Coloring Time with Andrew at WAIH, and it was wonderfully fun! I invited everybody on the radio station to come along and color or listen at home, and I had about a dozen people there! It was great fun, and I'm planning to get the pictures that people colored online within the next few days for all to see! Thanks to everybody who listened, visited, and/or colored!

Here was the Nodal Nim set list:

• Coloring Time with Andrew -> E Blue Apparatus
• Let Me In Your Hole
• Crash Tinkle Tinkle -> Lapse Into Memory
• Numbers Make More Numbers -> Stripes -> Robots: The Card Game
• Alan the Duck [requested]
• Pablo [requested]
• Yellow Things [premiere]

Then, after two unison strings broke simultaneously during Yellow Things and I finished it with three courses instead of four, I spun some CDs, restringed, and played two more songs, with Jen Abounader on guitar and vocals... and then a whole bunch of other people on vocals as well!

• Maroon Dots
• Vegetables You've Never Heard Of

Then it was about 11:15 or so, and I spun CDs for the rest of the show. Some people stuck around, others didn't, but I was left with an armful of exciting pictures, many of which featured yellow things, or blue things that are labelled yellow.

Thanks everybody for the magic!


Chris Roslund, Scott Marshall, and I form the band known for now as Brent Burnisher! We headlined at Hurley's tonight, with the following set list:

• Carrot Cake [Brent Burnisher]
• Be My Head [Flaming Lips]
• No Harm [Andrew Heathwaite]
• There There [Radiohead]
• My Acquaintance [Chris Roslund]
• The One I Love [R.E.M.]
• I Am Systems -> Javelin Head [Nodal Nim]
• Space Oddity [David Bowie]
• 12-bar blues jam with Carl
• Oh Darlin'! [Lennon/McCartney]


I played Purcell and Nodal Nim in my voice studio today!

• I'll Sail Upon the Dog Star [by Henry Purcell, accompanied by Eric Fauss on the piano]
• Stripes -> Vegetables You've Never Heard Of


Yesterday, Nodal Nim opened for a performance of five plays written by fellow students! I couldn't be heard very well, but it was fun just the same. I thought I played a good set:

• Member Of the Real
• Docky Docky
• Sun Flies
• Lapse Into Memory
• Bodymind
• 25% More Monster
• Crabnors
• Supersane
• Nimland
• You've Got Your Own Life
• Nobody Knows
• Crescent Moon
• I Am Systems
• Science

Most of the songs ran together, as I tried to be as continuous as possible.

I am truly exhausted.

Thanks to everybody who has supported me this semester, and these past few days in particular! I love you all!
