An autumn house warming.

Light my fire

Hello from Amsterdam. It's about one in the morning, early Monday. Everyone's asleep and I'm in the living room typing in the darkness, listening to George Michael's Cowboys and Angels.

I like this song. I remember first hearing it in the early mornings when dad would drive me to school. I was thirteen, maybe fourteen, and I'd be sprawled out half asleep in the back seat. For some reason or other, the deejay on the radio seemed to love this song, playing it most mornings. The first notes of the piano would break the silence as the song started out, and in the early light I'd stare out the window, and float through the journey to school.

I listen to it because it reminds me of that time with dad. The quiet of my heart in the morning. The pale blue sky. The simplicity of it all.

Europe in several hours. I'm leaving the iPad at home and bringing a physical book instead. An experiment I suppose.

Calm breakfast of hot soba with miso and mushrooms amidst a flurry of work and life.

I kinda want to suggest The Magnetic Fields: Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side as the main song. Oh you know what I'm talking about.

I wonder if I need to go away again.

I have been advised that we have secured Sundance tickets to Troll Hunter and Beats, Rhymes & Life. Score!

Sidenote: Troll Hunter was actually playing at a local theater when I was in Oslo. However I was worried that I did not understand Norwegian and there would be no English subtitles.
Back in the country after 2 weeks of running around. Brought back pseudo-cheesy t-shirts for the roommates that I'd actually wear. Given the amount of culinary adventuring, I'd guess that I'm twice the size. Gym mother fucker gym. Beefcake baby, beefcake.

It's about six on a Sunday morning and I'm torn between trying to go back to bed, and cleaning up, making breakfast, doing some work. Perhaps I can sort my life out later.

This year has turned out rather interesting to say the least, with its selection of first, second and third courses. Nervous in a good way. Haven't felt like this in a while.

This will be a good year. I can make it so.

We stopped by Republic Polytechnic this afternoon for a visit, checking out student portfolios and having a discussion with the department heads about curriculum and internships in interactive technology and arts. That's Uncle Han pre-briefing the team.

Saw some pretty amazing student work, but I think they need to crank up the competition and creativity. Being decent isn't good enough anymore, these students have to want to blow everyone away.

Toby's daughter Madison is ridiculously adorable.
