Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason.

Notes from the a cappella concert on Friday night:
"Since You Been Gone" seemed lackluster. I began sleeping through the second half of every song, awakening only to applaud.
I really don't listen to much contemporary music. The Men's Octet usually closes its set with some humorous revamp of a popular tune. Two years ago, it reliably brought down the house with its rendition of "Hit Me Baby One More Time." On Friday night, it did what I think of as "That One Moulin Rouge Song/Lady Marmalade" and I would have loved it more if I, you know, had heard the song more than twice or so.
I am such a square.
