MIT Contra 2010-02-23

February 24th, 2010
music, contra  [html]
I played the mit dance last night. Chris lahey called and the band was:
Jeff Kaufman Mandolin (also bass, piano)
Audrey Knuth Fiddle
Peter Buchak Accordion (also concertina)
Drew Stephens Guitar
Rick Kaufman Double bass (also mandolin)
It went pretty well. I was frustrated somewhat by not really being sure how we sounded, but I got good feedback. The sets we did were:
Far From Home (G reel) Over the Waterfall (D reel)
Indian Point (Em jig) Road to Lisdoonvarna (Em jig)
Coleman's March (D reel) Baghad Gus (Em reel)
Fair Jenny's (D/G jig) Hundred Piper's (A jig)
Marie's Wedding (G reel) Road to Boston (D reel)
Calliope House (E jig) All the Rage (E jig)
Brenda Stubberts (Am reel) Kitchen Girl (Amix/Am reel)
Sheebeg Sheemore (D waltz)
Break
Reel St Joseph (D reel) Dedicado a Jos (Bm/D reel)
Maison de Glass (D jig) Star Above the Garter (G jig)
Angeline the Baker (D reel) Arkansas Traveller (D reel)
MacArthur Road (E reel) Frank's (A reel)
Haapavesi (D waltz)
Lots of fun.

Grad school is worse for public health than STDs

(The way you can *really* tell something is horribly wrong is that grad students find PhD Comics darkly funny, not just dark.)

I’m Giving a Talk About Construction Costs Tomorrow

By popular demand, I’m giving the talk I gave 2 weeks ago at NYU, again. The database will be revised slightly to include more examples (like Ukraine, which I added between when I gave the talk and when I blogged about it), and I may switch around a few t…
