In a thread MajorDundee started a few weeks ago, he poses a query, "What talismans, icons etc do you have in your musical workspace?" Allow me to expand upon my response...

Trey Beauregard: Vocals
Melissa Burcham: Bass Flute
Timbill Corder: Melodica
Tommy Scheurich: Cello

I have a cousin who spent a year at Yale as a postgrad after she finished at Oxford. She now runs a bar in Luxembourg. So, that was a year well spent then....

Yeah. My Bachelor degree is in music composition, and I'm a programmer by day. Also let me mention I've never taken a single programming course.

The upshot of the whole applying-for-grad-school period of my life is, I now have documented evidence that I'm not Ivy-League material.

No. You have documented evidence that at a certain point in time a certain individual or group of individuals decided you weren't going to get through the gate into their so-called elite establishment for reasons that may not have been entirely untainted by prejudice, hangovers, bad periods, personal upheaval or whatever. Fuck 'em.
