That's where I work! Whee. In less heroic news, however:

    Missing 'Asteroids' champ found dead in California
    The world record holder for Atari's classic arcade game Asteroids was located by game record keeper Walter Day of Twin Galaxies after nearly 20 years of searching. Unfortunately, the Asteroids champion, Scott Safran of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, died in 1989 after falling off a roof during an attempt to save his pet cat .

My presentation on first-movement concerto form went pretty well this morning. I've posted the text of the handout on the Writings page under Music Research for anyone interested. I believe that should be the last major presentation I have to do for many years to come.

There's nothing new on the composing end right now... I'm just busy editing and proofreading scores and parts for Outlooks so I can start soliciting performances. This morning I planned out most of next semester. It looks like I'll be taking eleven credits -- 6 of thesis, 2 of trumpet lessons, and 3 of an elective class (possibly Instrumental Forms). After next semester I'll have finished Masters work, with about four semesters worth of work left for the Doctorate.
