Whenever I am feeling pessimistic or just plain pissed off, I kick back and enjoy some music. I just purchased the latest Squarepusher album, Ultravisitor. After listening to it a couple of times it is really growing on me. It makes me want to play my bass again. I have also been going through all of my old CD's and ripping them into MP3 format on my work computer. It is pretty fun rediscovering stuff I haven't listened to in years. Even if the fascists stay in power, good music will continue to be made somewhere in the world. At least I have that to look forward to.

All In

I have been playing a lot of poker lately. A bunch of us molbio nerds get together about every couple of weeks and play no limit hold 'em in to the wee hours of the morning. The game isn't so intense that we can't carry on conversations, has a luck component so I don't beat myself up when I lose, and involves enough skill that it is possible to get better at it. Poker has pretty much become the main social event in my life these days actually. Being married has made me even more of a hermit than I was in college. It is nice actually interacting with people every now and then.
