Der erste Abschnitt von Studium ist abgeschlossen! Muss sagen, das ist ein gutes Gefühl. Die Analysis II Prüfung war heute richtig angenehm. Fünf Minuten und dann wieder draußen. :-) (Und ich war einen halben Tag furchtbar nervös…)

Got some good new music, an interesting mix:

  • St. Germain, Boulevard (the complete series): Something between house and jazz. If you do not know Ludivic Navarre (the man behind St. Germain), give him a try. I’d especially recommed "Soul salsa soul" (though it is not on this CD).
  • Klass Brothers & Cuba Percussion: Symphonic Salsa: Classical music with cuban rythms. Combines the harmonics of classical composers with the feeling of Latin America.
  • The Art of Fugue by J. S. Bach (played by the Emerson String Quartet). Having read Hofstadters Gödel, Escher, Bach, I just had to have that. Also include is a good booklet with explanations. (And it goas without saying that this is good music.)

Today I finished uploading the best pictures (in my opinion) from our holidays in Greece with this one from Venice (where our ferry on the way back arrived):

See the complete set.

I did also upload some pictures from flowers I shot while it was raining yesterday. I just could not resist…

Und zuletzt noch eine Leseempfehlung: Small World! von Martin Suter. Und da ich jetzt schon genug geschrieben habe, verweise ich nur auf die Leserrezensionen auf, insbesondere die von Dirk Diehm. (Lässt sich leider nicht direkt verlinken.)
