Jan 22... On a day Below Zero...

Many cool things done today inside from the -3 degrees it was in Logan.
I'll stick to the three coolest things I did....

  1. Attended a lecture about a 20th century composer Olivier Messiaen. This dude wrote a 2 hour piano peice with 20 movements dedicated to God... It's called Vingt Regards Sur L'Enfant Jesus and it's AMAZING. I love it regardless of the dissonance and repetitiveness, because it is very well put together and composed, with themes for each symbol. What an amazing piece to begin my adventure into contemporary piano literature.

  2. I dressed up in a burgalar mask and crazy clothes in front of people. I looked ridiculous.

  3. Me and my lovely roomies decided to try out one of those first aid blankets that they put in those emergency kits.. so fun! This thing folds out to be huge, but really thin. Yet it keeps you ridiculously warm! We looked so silly parading down the stairs to try it in this terrible cold weather, but it was totally worth it! I'm going to buy one of these and make it into thermal underwear or a coat or something. Ridiculously cool.
