Here's a photo of the Korg Electribe SX. This is the sampler/sequencer I used to record "I Go Bananas" and "Gimme Vegetables" from the Paws Claws Scales & Tales CD. I've been working up a new song on it, "Born to Do Science," and was hoping to have it ready for you to hear by now, but as per usual, I'm behind!
This weekend Oklahoma was hit by a tropical storm that nearly became a hurricane. That's right, in landlocked Oklahoma! It came in the middle of the night, early Sunday morning. We were awakened by thunder, so Lisa and I turned on the TV. For a couple of hours the eye of the storm seemed to be heading straight for Stillwater, but then it turned eastward and passed south of us. We escaped with nothing worse than a bit of rain.
However much of the state is flooded now, including many of the towns we visited this summer for our library tour. Our thoughts are with all those folks who have been displaced and are now dealing with the aftermath.
On a lighter note, tomorrow is my birthday! How old will I be? Tune in tomorrow and maybe I'll reveal the answer.
