I am simply having an awesome time. For example, I went to dinner one night with this group of people. (This was not due to any great merit on my part, I should add, but that I applied late to the motor pool and ended up with a minivan.) The papers and sessions have been great, and my Necronomicon paper was met with considerable acclaim. When not in sessions we hang out in bars and debate the important questions, like whether Physical Graffiti really counts as a double album or an album and a half with older material thrown in. It’s just a really great group of people who are passionate about similar things, which is always a key to success.
As you can tell, not much else has gotten done in this time, but I’ll be back to you guys in a little while.
