school started this week. it going to be a challenging semester. I'm very , very glad for that. My sound design teacher is a bit of a pick ( " yes, I attended Julliard's prep school 10 years, got my bachelors in composition from Berkley, my masters at the New England conservatory, and finally, my doctorate in Scotland. blah, blah, blah. blah, blah, blah, I'm a bad ass. be impressed, blah blah blah.") Other than that, I think I'll like all the teachers and the classes. Photography, sound design, aesthetics of interactive multimedia, Myth-Literature-and Film, and finally Bio-Ethics. I've already got 2 books that are almost a 1000 pages long. Not only long, but dense.
yeah, uh, I'm gonna ago read now.
Check out Marshall McLuhan when you get a chance. Essential McLuhan is a good one, as is The media is the Massage. Fascinating shit. Digital prophecy. Waaaay ahead of his time.
