Sorry for this being a day late (and a couple of bucks short).
Well folks, today was my final day of classes at this institution. And it's more than safe to say that it was my final "legit" day of classes of my life. Maybe sometime down the road of life, I'll attend a few seminars for my job, or I'll attend meetings and get assigned "homework", but this is definitely the end of what young people consider "classes". It's a bittersweet feeling, like with most growing-up-type events that happen to soon-to-be graduates. I can't believe I'm graduating in a week and a half. Where did four years go? I'll spare you what I said in my speech to all the members of 88.3 FM KUR on Tuesday's (final) meeting. That's wasn't an easy thing to get through. I'll write a HUGE post sometime after I graduate next Saturday about my feelings towards college radio, Never Mind the Mainstream and KUR specifically, and the "college rock" genre of the past four years. It should be pretty heartfelt. After final exams, I'm sure I'll be fed up with writing, but I'll muscle out something poignant for all of you. In the mean time, here's some great new music that came out since last Wednesday. Enjoy it with a beer and the anticipation of summer on the horizon, just like I am. Disregard my exclamation points for Interpol and Kele. I'm just really psyched to hear their new tunes.
