Fall semester began today. (You have to imagine the title of this post as it would be pronounced by Sean Connery.) Nothing major to report, other than today happened to be the day they replaced the windows in my office, meaning I spent some time sitting outside in triple-digit heat preparing for class and then eating my lunch. Nice to have new windows, though.
Now I’ll begin to think differently about what I say on here as the very real possibility arises that students will google me and find this blog. Well, I guess it’s no more real than it was in the spring, when I started blogging. However, my Google ranking has improved considerably since that time. To be honest, though, I’m not sure my in-class persona is that different from my blog persona, but I’m probably not the best person to ask about that.
Listening to the new Cat Power CD tonight, You Are Free. Very good stuff. You can download a (free and legal) mp3 of one of the tracks: “Maybe Not,” hosted on the Sonic Youth server as part of Thurston Moore’s Protest Records project.
