Burning Cookies and the Mythos of the American Outlaw

So… the two major things that happened today are there in the title.

Bad thing: I burned some cookies.

Good thing: Dr Dave gave a fascinating lecture at the Songwriter’s Guild about the mythos of the American Outlaw and the Murder Ballad. It was highly enjoyable, and once I have the video/audio edited I’ll try and put it up here. Dr Dave is simply one of the funniest, most talented and committed teachers I know. He spends every day from early morning to late evenings, sometimes as late as early morning again to help students with their projects in the studio. So it was a lot of fun and I enjoyed having that experience at the end of the day.

2 more days till Thanksgiving break!!
