Def Jam


I finally have the blog's first stand-alone page up, and it's a collection of my word-verification definitions (with an explanation for the uninitiated). Here's another installment of such things in celebration, its content already added to the page.

A quick, unrelated note for percussion aficionados: The Late Show with David Letterman is promoting this as Drum-Solo Week. Late Show drummer Anton Fig, Shiela E, the legendary Roy Haynes, and Rush's Neil Peart will be hitting the skins 'n' cymbals Monday through Thursday, respectively.

Enjoy!
