Back in Town

I made it to and back from the Mengelberg/Lewis concert with nary a hitch, and it was very good. The Rutgers Epistemology conference was great and should produce some substantive philosophy blogging or even work. It was nice to be around for Mom's birthday--many happy returns, Mom!--and too bad that my calendrical cluelessness led to my flying out so early Mother's day. My attempt to meet up with Ogged, Wolfson, and Kotsko was a disaster that has been thoroughly covered elsewhere. I should write up the absurdist movie I temporarily fell into just before heading to Chicago in its own entry; about the rest, suffice it to say that I was in a Philadelphia. The AACM 40th anniversary concert, which I did get to, was very good--the highlight was definitely George Lewis again, in duo with Ann E. Ward. I should write about the music too, and about music more in general--this blog (via Gillian) is putting me to shame.

That's at least three posts I've promised to write. Even if they do get written--which is dubious--you'd be better served by going here and clicking all the links (with sound).

Do I take it therefore that I am forgiven for having suspected you of dishonorable behavior?

Also, 19th/20th/possibly 21st of May--any plans?

And I hope I'm forgiven for teasing you, too.

Hm, apparently my online persona doesn't project "not incredibly touchy"; nothing to forgive at all. The day you folks stop teasing me is the day all the sunshine goes out of my life. And ac, I hope you caught the Smiths ref I made for you.

I think the point is, we *were* teasing you by pretending you're incredibly touchy.

Oh dear. Well, I didn't say I'm not.

Thought that sounded familiar.

Oh for fuck's sake, make up your mind. Touchy, or not? Jesus. I haven't got all day.
