Musical talent

My lack of musical talent was exposed twice last night. It was open mic night at the Bird’s Nest, although I didn’t avail myself of the opportunity and I played the Battle of the Bards episode in NWN2 and used someone else’s answers. (It’s a copy this tune test, and there’s no way I was going to do that.) It reminds me of the piano puzzle in Myst, which I couldn’t do either.

So no storify on yesterday’s meeting; I am planned a blog article on PASOK’s collapse instead; I finished the day watching Boston Legal S4E20, the last of the season where Alan & Denny go head-to-head over the “Patriot Act”, using the conceit of a town secession. This was first shown in May 2008 and is, given the time of production, a magnificently brave piece of writing; exploring the dilemma of the Republic and how one defends a democracy and keeps friends. Fiction as a lens on politics.
