BYU Singers

Brigham Young University Singers is my favorite musical group in the world. (Here's what I've written about them before.) They're getting fancier and fancier! They recently released this impressive promotional video for their latest concert. I hope hope hope hope to be in the Singers someday (next year??). I listen to their music incessantly! In fact, the only available tenor spot was taken by my friend Steve, who, if you watch the video, is the blonde guy with the part in his hair talking about personification of something or other. :-( He's a great guy though, and my time will come.

You can listen to some of their works below on my listening application, but I encourage you most of all to buy some of their fantastic CDs at

Secret Laser Experiments

On Saturday I had a big physics presentation that I had been preparing for for a couple of months. My professor wanted me to talk about research that we had done the past summer, but I thought it was all boring and wanted to work on something NEW. Well, this NEW thing (which I won't be mentioning here...) turned out to be a lot of work. I found myself convincing my own advisor that it actually is a doable experiment! So I think I've succeeded in that regard, now to find $20,000 somewhere...

The reason I won't mention the details of the experiment here is because, well, we don't want any other high-intensity laser labs to get any ideas. This experiment has never been done before and could potentially be very interesting. But I do love to talk about it, so if you want to know the secret, just talk to me in real life sometime. It has to do with LASERS oooooo! I love physics :D

Navel Perplexity

Over the past six months I have consistently been finding copious amounts of lint in my navel.

This sudden arrival has caused me to ponder the genesis of the fibrous materials and their mysterious gravitation toward my umbilicus.

I have formed no hypotheses, but promise to enlighten you when I do.
