River Tam danced to this tune in an episode of Firefly. It's a Scottish jig and beloved to me for its connection to one of my all-time favorite science fiction series.

Many thanks to the Whistle This! web site for providing me with the resources to learn this tune. To hear it performed by other musicians on the Whistle This! web site, click here.

...arrived yesterday via international post. In other news, I am considering a web site redesign as a prelude to my pending PhD studies. This web site is a useful, functional thing for a writer with musical proclivities, but the theme is intentionally somewhat whimsical, and there's a great deal of dated information here organized somewhat loosely. I also don't know how I feel about the 'talking on the Internet' paradigm of my journal entries either, though it might be fun to journal my academic progress through the PhD. We'll see... For the foreseeable future though, things will remain as they are.
