Like a week ago the word "melismatic" popped into my head while waiting for the bus, and I was like, "Is that even a word? It sounds kind of like a word. I should look it up." I finally got around to looking it up today, and indeed it is a real word. A neat one at that. What's weird is I can't remember reading or hearing it anywhere. I must have barely noticed it somewhere just enough for it to get lodged in my subconscious, and pop out randomly at a later time.

Practiced rocking out this evening with the usual people, (cdtwigg, robots_suck, iole200) and far more important than actually playing music, we discussed band names. Alls I remember is "Robot Porn", though I recall there were other suggestions.

I think up till now I've still retained some conceit of dag gummit these are dumb ol' pop songs I should be able to listen to 'em once and play 'em right without half a thought spared, but actually sitting down and carefully listening to the songs and writing down exactly how many bars every little bit takes and where the transitions are is surprisingly helpful.

Happy birthday to phoebus!
