I have never felt so completely lost doing a lab and now that's exactly how I feel. *stabs the data* The way it's going, I'm going to have 100+% error which is really, really, REALLY bad. And that can only mean one thing -- the data is either wrong, I'm using it incorrectly, or I'm missing data. All three are pretty bad but the worse one has got to be the first on. I'm leaning towards "missing data" or "using it incorrectly" myself since I'm pretty sure I know how to use it and manipulate the data.

Okay, my lab partner just IMed me. Apparently our computer gave us wrong values for the area under the curve for the Force graphs. That makes a lot more sense -- especially if I had to estimate the area using triangles, I would say it was around 100ish as well. Okay, that's going to go into error analysis then... Hopefully they won't penalize it too much.

Anyway, right now I'm adoring Waking Ashland and their "I Am For You" which is a pretty good song. What I would like right now is to find a version of "The Tortoise and the Hare" which is so incredibly beautiful... I heard it off of the Asian Kung Fu Generation Nano Mugen Festival . Seriously the piano in this is just so...captivating. I wish they were touring right now but I'm pretty sure they stuck out West this time... I'm in New York where many bands hit at least once and when I finally have a group that I want to see, they're not coming. At least not this year.

And it's driving me insane that I don't have "Tortoise and the Hare." I have their Telescope album ordered but I have no idea when it'll get here... I really had to think about whether or not I wanted to get this solely on iTunes or if I wanted the CD and the more I thought about it, the more that I couldn't help but think that if I was going to spend money on something, I might as well have something concrete like a CD.

In a way, Waking Ashland edged out Kimeru. I heard them a couple days after I got Kimeru's single which kinda stopped the whole Kimeru "let's replay "Dive into the Heart" over and over again!!!" craze. Now I'm deeply moved by Waking Ashland. I was originally attracted (and still am) to them because of the "Ashland" part of their name. Anyone whose a bit artsy on the West Coast knows Ashland. And those who don't -- were they living under a rock? The Shakespeare festival there is just so well-known. And coming from Oregon, of course I've heard of it. And it really is a reference to Ashland (though they are a San Diego indies band). Which does of course endear them more to me. That and their usage of the piano which is poignant and beautiful, exactly the way a piano should be used when it comes to rock. I'm not sure Diana-chan would love this song but she'll probably like it better than their "I Am For You" which is really more upbeat and energetic. "Tortoise and the Hare" is a little more low key, more acoustic in nature which really suits it. It's a bit -- in the words of Diana-chan -- a bit whiny but it's still really beautiful. I wouldn't call it whiny though. It's just really wonderful. It's a short song, and it repeats so often but there are a couple of lines that I just adore from this song.
