1. Is "World Peace is None of Your Business" a Concept Album?

    The album, World Peace is None of Your Business, is about human agency—particularly the structures which limit it.

  3. Today is the Greatest!



    It really is! Because... I just got some excellent news. My bid/proposal has been accepted. I am in! Plus I just got a $1,000 bonus. Also, found out my parents will be flying out in October to see David and I. We will have a blast, I am certain, just like we did on my mom's last visit.
