Hey Marseilles in Beantown

Funny how life sometime works: I earned my music degree in Boston (long ago), and now just this past Tuesday eve my brother's band Hey Marseilles played in Boston (well Cambridge, but close enough) during an East Coast mini-tour on their way to SXSW in Texas. Here's a little video courtesy of SonicBlog:

Behind the scenes Blogger migration stuff

FYI - I've been forced by my blog hosting service Blogger to migrate the contents of my personal and climbing blogs from my server to theirs. It's all technical background stuff that I hope will be invisible, but who know what issues may rear their ugly heads? I'll do my best.

Sunday at Howarth Park

Sunday was a beautiful day so Rosann and I took the dogs to Howarth Park: Denali's favorite place on earth. Chasing sticks in the water is her bliss. It was also to our benefit - she went straight to bed when we came home. :-)

HAPPY DOG


BEAUTIFUL DAY

Hey Marseilles at The Crocodile

Forgot to mention I saw my brother's band Hey Marseilles last month at the Crocodile in Seattle. It was a sellout and they put on a good show; they seem to be settling together as an ensemble quite well - lot's of good energy and they were called out for an encore. They'll be re-releasing a remastered version of their album To Travels & Trunks this spring for nationwide distribution - exciting! You can also catch them on the Starbucks CD compilation, Sweetheart 2010.

Mind-reading: it's all in the lens

An interesting read over at Not Exactly Rocket Science, a study on how we view ourselves vs. others:
... our failure as mind-readers stems from an inability to look at ourselves and other people with the level of detail that they would use. Correcting this mismatch won't allow us to become true telepaths - it's not going to suddenly allow you to guess someone's favourite colours or political preferences. It should, however, help us to better understand how people see themselves or each other, especially for people who are very different, or those who are unfamiliar.

If you want to understand how others see you, put away the fine-grained details and take a "big picture" look at yourself. If you're worried that other people will judge you too harshly for a mistake, try to zoom away from the details of the blunder and look at the various bits of info that people take into account when thinking about you. Likewise, if you want to understand how others see themselves, shelve the generalities that you would use and start focusing in on the minutiae that they pay attention to.
