Housefilk!

Hey everybody, I’m hosting a housefilk at my apartment the evening of Sunday, November 18th, from noon to 5:00pm.

The location is 100 Christopher Columbus Dr., Jersey City, NJ, just outside the Grove St. stop on the PATH train.

If you’re interested, RSVP to me by LJ message or at agd12@columbia.edu to get the apartment number and my contact info.

If you want to bring a pot luck dish or beverage that would be lovely, but please, no fish. (The host is severely allergic.)

And yes, because I’m lazy, this post is almost entirely cut-and-pasted from my announcement of the Heather Dale concert I hosted last year.

House Concert!

Hey everybody, I'm hosting a house concert by Heather Dale, awesome Celtic and folk musician and winner of three Pegasus Awards, at my apartment the evening of November 15th. Doors open at 6:00; showtime is 7:00.

You can hear some of Heather's music at her website or on her YouTube channel.

The location is 100 Christopher Columbus Dr., Jersey City, NJ, just outside the Grove St. stop on the PATH train.

If you're interested, RSVP to me by LJ message or at agd12@columbia.edu to get the apartment number. I'm asking for a suggested donation of $10 to $15, which will go to help Heather cover road expenses and enable them to keep doing concerts like this.

If you want to bring a pot luck dish or beverage that would be lovely, but please, no fish. (The host is severely allergic.)

Steve Jobs, RIP

(Crossposted from my comment on facebook.)

My first computer was a Mac Plus, and I've been Mac-only ever since. While I was too new to the scene (I was in second grade when we got that Plus) to fully understand why so many people were so excited when Steve returned in ’96, I saw the impact almost immediately--by the time I was out of college, iMacs, iBooks, and iPods were everywhere, OS X was widely admired, and Apple was well its way to taking over the culture.

The years since have seen me purchase three Macs, two iPhones, two iPads, an Apple TV, and so many iPods I've lost count, and every one of them made my life a little better, a little more enjoyable, in a way that I'm sure they would never have been able to do had Steve not been in charge.

Thank you, Steve Jobs, for taking so much of my money, and improving so much of my life.
