Pass the mic.

It is entirely true that one of my reasons for teaching is that I am a ham actor waiting to happen. Or maybe a rock star, similarly waiting to happen. These days, put a microphone in front of me, and I'm in love: with the stage, with the lights, with the audience. With the applause and even the cheering. Did I bring the house down? Yes, I kind of nearly did. And yes, I enjoyed it.

What on earth is this a picture of? Is it entrails? I bet it's entrails. :)

How did you know?! Glass entrails!

No, seriously, it's the Chihuly sculpture that we have hanging in the music building. It's called "Gilded Silver and Aquamarine Chandelier" and is on extended loan from Graham Gund. Apparently, when it arrived on campus in 2003 it came in 51 boxes; it has to be custom installed wherever it lives.
