10-27-08-Ok, the whole "fish out of water" "don't know the language" thing, is starting to get REALLY old. i have to apply myself a bit more if i am going to learn the language.

so today, after a great weekend, i was reflecting on a few moments over the last few days that made me pause. laughing about politics on a bridge...swigging whiskey from a water bottle. a wonderfully strange night out at RAW Tempel with friends, dancing the Balkan beat (!?!)...on acid. ending up at a supposed porn party/lesbian bar...with no porn save for one topless woamn, but every club has one of those.

So, with the images of the weekend swimming around my head, i started my daily ritual of practicing recursively, ie, improvising using my looping system and recording it to pick out what i need the most work on, and this kinda jumped out at me.

I named it "Verlangen" which is German for Desire or Longing. there is a reason for that title beyond trying to learn german or be clever, which i will break down later. i'll let the title speak for itself for now.
