Studying Piano

I can’t imagine that there is anyone that has talked to me in the last month or so that hasn’t heard that I’m taking piano lessons. In fact, everyone is probably pretty sick of hearing about it and probably thinks that’s all I talk about. So for those of you that don’t talk to me […]

Keynes vs Hayek

This is really entertaining. And really educational. It’s a summary of the debate between two pretty different schools of economic thought. I love rap. And the ending is so appropriate.

The Utah Symphony 2011-2012 Season

I just realized that the Utah Symphony announced it’s 2011-2012 season recently. I have never been more excited for a season. They are playing a lot of my favorite music. Check out the complete Utah Symphony concert schedule. I went through the schedule so to choose which concerts to get with my season tickets next […]

Pavarotti, Eminem, Pavarotti

Although I usually listen to the radio when I’m driving, today I had one of my Pavarotti CDs in. After a bit I decided to change the CD to another Pavarotti CD I had. But while I was changing it the radio came on and there was a really great song by Eminem on the […]

I’m Not Afraid

While I’m on the topic of really cool and uplifting music, I really like this song. (Not for the faint of heart. As in, it’s not edited and it’s got profanity most would consider pretty serious.) Update: I found a copy of the video that is edited, so it’s a little less offensive. I’ve replaced […]

School Thy Feelings

My grandpa, uncle, dad, and I starting sing in a quartet together over a year ago. It’s a lot of fun. We’re not terribly professional, but we’ve got some dozen songs that we’ve got down pretty well. We’ve got a couple westerns, some old love songs, some hymns from the hymnbook, and some other traditional […]

Some Fantastic Headphones

The headphones I’ve been using for quite a while have been very cheap earbuds. They’ve been wearing out and I’ve been meaning get some better ones for quite a while. I have been particularly interested in trying out some in ear headphones. A couple weeks ago I buckled down and did some fairly extensive research […]

Whether you need a review of Economics 110 or you have never taken it and want a crash course, here’s a great resource.

My Dream Job

The Utah Symphony named a new conductor yesterday: Thierry Fischer. From the Utah Symphony website: Swiss conductor Thierry Fischer is Principal Conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and also Chief Conductor of the Nagoya Philharmonic. From 2001-2006 he was Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Ulster Orchestra. In 2009 he was named […]

A Website Well Worth Checking Out

When I was looking up information about Dr Benjamin’s mathemagics performance (see my blog post), I stumbled across a site on the internet that I think is worth checking out. It is TED.com. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started in 1984 as a conference to “[bring] together people from those three worlds.” During […]
