The Old World Dies; And With It, The Old Ways
So... I'm done. Done with finals, done with my second undergrad. As of tomorrow, I should be the official owner of a BS in Neuroscience, and can officially start walking around and insist people refer to me by my title, Bachelors Ehrich. Yes, I'm THAT guy.
There's a bit of a weird anti-climactic feeling to all of it. Another 3.5 years of school, obsessing over school work 11 months out of every year, and then eventually I have to get up WAY too early in the morning (last final was at 8:00 AM... in St. Paul), and on the bus ride home it occurs to me, "Huh. I guess I won't have to do this again for a while." I guess it'll sink in eventually; but at the moment, it feels like more of an accomplishment just for having gotten through this week.
And on that note, I would like to thank the following musicians & albums for having provided studying music throughout the week:
Atom Heart - Datacide II
Banco de Gaia - You Are Here
Cibelle - About a Girl & The Shine of Dried Electric Leaves
DaKAH Hip Hop Orchestra - Unfinished Symphony
Dick Dale - Calling Up Spirits
Jah Wobble - Deep Space & Fly
Ladytron - Extended Play
Mylene Pires - Mylene
And also the following albums for giving me the energy to keep going:
Pig - Sinsation
Metallica - Master of Puppets
Messiah - 21st Century Jesus
Praga Khan - Electric Religion
Celebration? Dick Dale show tonite, that's for sure. Combined with the Ice Cube show last week, this is already the best month for music in around a year.
