And we're back...

Wow. Looks like I've been away since almost exactly two years ago :)
I guess I could just wait for a week and nail it on the head.

On one hand, I like the discussion aspect of FB better than Blogger... but one of the things that I don't care for on FB is the difficulty with going back through the past. They've got a new interesting "your memories" thing going on these days, but it's not enough.

Kina funny... my last post here was about the beginnings of VR. Appropriate.
I've been after that one for a long time. I actually modeled my campus in 3dVR back in college. Mary has a watercolour painting I did as part of that project hanging in her livingroom.. bet ya didn't know that was a geek painting Mary?

What brings me back here has similar undertones... the past.
We all have a personal list of favourite songs. Being a geek, it's easy for me to share that list. I didn't feel like posting this on FB though. Not only because of FB being FB, but it's a bit more suited to quick posts and to light discussion. I like it for that, but it has it's limits.

So here's my list.
It's missing a lot, especially stuff that you wouldn't be at all familiar with like Suzanne Ciani (Dear Lord... the entire Pianissimo album alone would top this list!)
This isn't my iPod list.
That one's good too, but these are ones that mean something to me. (ha, some I don't even know what)
This is like comfort food... self indulgent. A bit of wallowing in the past. After too much of this, I feel a great need for exposure to new music. It's nice to wallow sometimes for a bit though.
