Weekend getaway in Vermont. We drank some whiskey at the Whistlepig Distillery tasting room, then hiked to Moss Glen Falls for some fall foliage. I think Vermont is more or less all about food, booze, and trees, which is basically my dream vacation.

Just got back from a trip to Grand Teton national park and Yellowstone. Some of the wildest, most beautiful places I've been to. There are still some things about this country that I'm proud of.

The beginning of the pipeline is a data structure representing musical values - notes, rests, chords, etc.

The (perform) function transforms music values into performance values - a sequence of events with a duration, a volume, a pitch, and the other data necessary to represent the physical noises you hear in a performance.

The performance data can be turned into audio or MIDI signals to have the computer actually make noise.

The box art shows off how pretty the game is 👌

Got a new board game, ! It's a dice placement with really pretty artwork. It's a lot of fun so far.
