Time in Oxford

I spent the last week at my parents’ house back in Oxford, Ohio. While it’s normally your typical small, college town, there was quite a bit of awesomeness afoot this time around.

You’re probably aware that Processing 1.0 was released this past week. I’m not totally clear on the details of why, but the final development was happening in Oxford, thanks to funding from Miami University. I was really fortunate to be able to spend some time with all of the people working on the 1.0 release over the weekend.

Obviously, I spent a lot of time with friends. This entailed the requisite time in bars and apartments dedicated to making sure we’re all on the successful side of things. Fortunately, they’re mostly up to some cool stuff. Mike and I recorded harmonies for one of his tracks and I got to mess around on his les paul for a bit. Christian and Hillary had their BFA exhibitions up, and you can see some photos from them on flickr. Steve went to jail because of a clerical error by the state, and his cop-car relay from Oxford to Cleveland makes the best Thanksgiving story I heard.
