Well, I had my last day of regular class today, an Ethics lecture with the legendary, highly knowledgeable, and ever-so-sweet Thomas Nagel, who is sans hyperbole perhaps the greatest living philosopher. I’m still a little star-struck in his class. This being the last lecture, wrapping things up as neatly as possible for an undergrad philosophy course, it ran a little long and his last words to the class were, simply, “Well, looks like there’s no time for discussion. So long.”
The class applauded thunderously.
I’m not sure why but as I was leaving NYU’s Silver Center this song from Pal Joey started boppin’ around my brain, and I began humming it, then singing it outright to myself, and felt compelled to find a piano and hammer out the tune as best as I could remember.
And so begins, with the last scheduled lecture of the semester as two weeks of finals loom ahead, the second installment of my impromptu-iPhone-piano-covers-to-avoid-work series, Procrasti-Covers.
I find it funny that this is rhe second time I’ve received a B-MO iPhone case as a gift and I don’t even watch Adventure Time that much (at NYU Gramercy Green Hall)
What does that even MEAN

Love your aesthetic. Expect much more from me [UNEDITED, UNFILTERED, & UNALDULTERATED] soon. I’ll hit you with some more cell phone-y stuff too, though this was taken by iPhone.
