In its first day of release on soundclick.com, the noisy and musically valueless song "Robot Breakfast" ascended to number 6 on the Electronica: noise daily subchart, my first top 10 performance. It also garnered a winning bid on eBay, from a fellow who buys a lot of dark ambient music. My favorite part was seeing the banner ad I wrote play on soundclick.com, which showed the gorgeous icon and said: "Gurdonark's Robot Breakfast is Crunchy Noise!".
I also bought 88 chess books on eBay from a fellow selling his chess library. I will keep 40 or so, and then sell the rest, driving my cost down.
Today my brother and I drive to Arkansas. I am ready for a visit home.
