Messy update

I thought I ought to give a progress update, as much for myself as anyone else.  Last Tuesday, the remains of my studio that was in Chicago, (and which had been quietly biding its time in my parents' basement) crash landed in the middle of my studio here, which is nice, as now I have all my stuff in one place, but which is also not nice, as my studio now looks like something exploded in the middle of it, and I don't work well in the middle of a mess, quite the opposite, in fact.
