Boxes Atop Boxes

For a while there I didn't believe in the Most Annoying Song tournament, but Matthew thought it was cool so Boring Like a Drill thought it was cool and anon and anon Internet ways until it reaches freaking NewMusicBox. I cannot help but be humbled. My visitor count multiplied by a factor of six.

In a nutshell I'm one of the thousands of guitarists in Boston, my difference is that I'm primarily a classical player (for now) and already have a degree in my clenched fists. At the moment I'm persuing a masters at the Boston Conservatory, and having moved here originally from Wisconsin I'm trying to take advantage of all the activities that weren't previously available. Most of the posts revolve around this quest of finding pretension whereever I can, but I occasionally lapse into talking about metal. Also I know that the header includes foodyism, and believe me I enjoy eating as much as the next guy, but I haven't really gotten around to writing about it. My off-topic wiggle room is mainly taken up by pinhole photography. Here are some writing samples for your enjoyment.

Of course, The Most Annoying Song tournament fiasco
I totally tear Stravinsky a new asshole (not really, well maybe a little)
My responses to Do The Math's musician questionnaire
A blow-by-blow of the 2006 TBC New Music Festival (Days 2 3 4 Post-op)
Depressing times and pinhole photography at an art opening

I wholly encourage you to subscribe through my fancy-lad FeedBurner feed (e-mail subscriptions also available), since I certainly hope I will continue to get better at this.
