Went to a concert that was part of some degree requirement for a pair of instructors. The performance was quite good, though I don’t think I properly appreciated the white-Brit boy rappers. They seemed to have established the whole gesturing and strutting thing with the wardrobe but I think they need a bit more practice on the diction and synching. Otherwise for the other groups the instrumental work was good, lighting was passable, video playback was clever, vocals good (though couldn’t understand the rapper guest spots), overall audio for the setting was about right for the save of space and the clarity was pretty good.

On the trail of outlaws

by on Apr.19, 2009, under General

Today we went down to Sherwood Forest and wandered about under the trees that the legendary outlaws called home. Its a fair set of trails to wander on left to your own devices and a set of shops near the entrance to try to get more of your money. Three pounds for parking to start with. Ice cream stand out by the Major Oak which is supposed to have been a frequent meeting spot for Robin’s band. We found a fairly quiet patch of grass near there to eat a picnic lunch while dodging errant soccer balls from the youngsters wandering about with more enthusiasm than control. Walked the longest of the trails I think, it was a little hard to track as horse paths crossed it at angles and markers weren’t always present. Still a good day all around. Returned on a scenic route and watched Return of the King while I was uploading photos. I am looking at online job stuff a bit now thinking about what I’ll be doing soon. I think I’ll be figuring more into that tomorrow, now its nearly bed time I think.

Landing abroad and fun with entry authorities.

by on Apr.17, 2009, under General, Travel

March 6, 2009

Got up early after having fiddled around with packing until late including a trip to Walmart to buy an entirely new set of luggage.  Stared at suitcases quite a bit trying to decide if I had too much or not enough stuff in them. Mom came up and met me to haul me around. Realized I should have some better tags for the suitcase (things fell apart on landing) so picked those up on our way to lunch. We ate at my current favorite restaurant, Chinese Express on EP True / 50th in West Des Moines and chatted with the owner. Then we went over to the airport and had a coffee and waited for my flight. Being jumpy about the whole check in and security process since I hadn’t done it in nine years I said bye to mom and went through security and had about an hour to twiddle my thumbs. Ran into the first hiccup here, small plane with tiny overheads so they took one of my carry-ons and stowed it below. My laptop kit didn’t really fit below either so I had it between my feet all the way to Memphis.
