One of the things I like most about being a teacher is when my students teach me something.  Today a couple of my past students taught me that Jesus was in fact not a zombie, he was a lich.

I tried to take a video of the green flash this evening

 There really was a green flash.  Unfortunately the colour of the video is out of whack, and I should have used a tripod, but if you use your imagination just a bit you can see it.

I diy'ed myself an all-Canadian mic stand

 Hockey stick stuffed into a ski boot.  And duct-tape to secure the mic.

Now to start torturing the neighbours with the melodious sound of my voice.

5 am. Suddenly awake, sat bolt upright in bed. Eyes wide open, heart racing…

It had just occurred to me that the ssd drive on my computer that suddenly died a few days ago, and seems unrecoverable, had the keys to my bitcoin wallet. Argh!!! My bitcoins lost forever?

It took a few minutes for me to wake up enough to remember that in a moment of wisdom, a month or 2 ago, I did backup the keys to another drive. Whew. Disaster averted, calming down. I just wish I could get back to sleep.

You know how you sometimes buy an album for one song, and when you listen to the album you don't pay much attention to all the other songs?  And then sometime later one of the other songs will strike you, for whatever reason, and you realize that all along this song is actually much better than the song that you bought the album for in the first place?

That happened to me this morning with this song.  The instrumental arrangement building up to the singing is amazing.  They do some interesting tension build-up and release – I'm going to have to look up the chords to see how they do it.
