8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |death in vegas-dead elvis]

[recrea33] nice version huh?
(9:12) [scarredwrist3] Of SS?
[recrea33] ? art of fugue
(9:12) [scarredwrist3] Oh, you mean the Bach
[recrea33] yep
(9:13) [scarredwrist3] I haven't plugged it into my player yet.
[recrea33] ss?
(9:13) [scarredwrist3] Still have two more tracks to download...I thought you meant SoulSeek.
[recrea33] aha?
(9:13) [scarredwrist3] It was down for awhile, I thought maybe you knew they were reprogramming it or something
(9:14) [scarredwrist3] <- overthinks sometimes
[recrea33] i actually liked the old one. this version gives me trouble
(9:14) [scarredwrist3] I don't think I was around for the old one.
[recrea33] i think you'll like the bach though
(9:15) [scarredwrist3] Writing a huge paper tonight, due tommorrow. Need some classical in the background, y aknow.
(9:15) [scarredwrist3] I hope so! :)
[recrea33] string quartet version
(9:15) [scarredwrist3] Great. Sounds perfect!
[recrea33] what's your paper on?
(9:16) [scarredwrist3] God, you don't want to know, but 'll tell you.
[recrea33] i'm all ears
(9:16) [scarredwrist3] How technology has failed composition instruction in the past and how it may again in the future.
(9:17) [scarredwrist3] Grad school theory courses are no fun. haha
[recrea33] lol wtf is composition instruction?
[recrea33] music compostion? aha
(9:18) [scarredwrist3] Teaching students how to write. Like...English 101 or Writing 101.
(9:18) [scarredwrist3] At least I didn't say "Composition Pedagogy" which is their pet name for themselves.
(9:18) [scarredwrist3] I wish it were music.
(9:18) [scarredwrist3] lol
[recrea33] holy cow!
(9:19) [scarredwrist3] Yah, talk about wordy.
[recrea33] so has it failed?
(9:19) [scarredwrist3] Allright! It downloaded.
(9:20) [scarredwrist3] Well, certain programs that were supposed to usher in a revolution in teaching student's to write back in the mid 80s-90s never really brought about any real change.
(9:20) [scarredwrist3] And my theory is that many instructors are making the same faulty assumptions regarding the internet now.
[recrea33] what like poetry programs and such?
[recrea33] spellcheck has to be a good thing?
(9:22) [scarredwrist3] Spellcheck is allright, but the grammarcheck on MS Word is brutal, and a subject of my paper, lol
(9:22) [scarredwrist3] Programs that were supposed to offer you suggestions as you wrote papers, One was called Writer's Workbench
[recrea33] you do get some amusing alternates though
[recrea33] are you using ww to write your paper?
[recrea33] maybe you could do two versions?
(9:24) [scarredwrist3] Hahaha. Word Perfect actually, and I turned off the grammar checker. I do use Spell Check though
(9:25) [scarredwrist3] The Bach is amazing.
[recrea33] he's the man
(9:26) [scarredwrist3] Yah. Allright man, good talking to you.
(9:26) [scarredwrist3] Need to hit the paper again.
(9:26) [scarredwrist3] Hit me up anytime I'm on here.
[recrea33] sorry about the quality it's from a much loved tape recording
(9:27) [scarredwrist3] Sounds fine to me. No lie. I don't know too much about classical.
[recrea33] k. good luck.
(9:27) [scarredwrist3] thanks, bye
