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).Posted by Matt Weiner at May 9, 2005 04:14 PM
