The city is winning. There’s too much to do. And I find myself spending almost as much time deciding as doing.

Can a simple life exist in the city? I sure hope so.

As nice as it is to live in a place where I can eat Ethiopian, dance Salsa and see Dave Chapelle, all in a 5 mile radius, what’s missing is a true sense of family – says the guy that lives alone. Says the guy who’s idea of a good evening is reading a book. But, honestly, telecommuting’s the future right? Who says I can’t live in the middle of nowhere? Or more specifically, the middle of Missouri.

In other news, I’ve been playing a bit with Audacity. My friend and collaborator Kate and I are working on a new piece tentatively called “The Working Poor” based on some video she shot while she was here in February. I’m taking the audio from the videos and slicing it up to create an aural collage. Yum.
