Today was good.  Database lab, while pointless, did result in some
work getting done on our project.  It’s going to take a lot of
work in a short amount of time, but when it’s complete our project will
be a very cool game engine with an easy-to-use design interface.

Solfege was moved over to Byerly because for some reason Men’s Choir
needed Room D in Lyte.  We began our foray into 20th century
music, and listened to a piece by Claude Debussy and a piece by
Benjamin Britton.  They were both kind of weird, especially since
just last week we were talking about functional chords and detectable
key changes.  Now everything is about “tonal centers” rather than
keys, and chords have zero function.  Even the chords are weird:
most of them are built on 4ths and 5ths rather than 3rds.  For the
non-musical people out there, that would mean a chord could be built on
the 1st degree, 4th degree, and the 7th degree.  Do-Fa-Ti for the
solfeggio-literate.  Normally it’s Do-Mi-Sol.  Craziness
ensues.

So, that’s today.  Tomorrow means my busy day, but it also means
that you can expect two hours of metal on 91.7 FM (www.wixq.com) from
4-6PM.

That’s it for now.  Good night everyone.

    You are too easily depressable. You must be one of those selectable drink lids.
