I just wanted to check in (as I haven't posted in well over a month). The semester is wrapping up pretty well. I've started writing a paper to published this summer (!) and have been deep in spectrum assignment land. I also have some friends getting married at the end of the month and will be playing trumpet for their wedding with two of my friends. After that happens, I'm going to a conference to give a talk on my research (a first!).
So, yeah, a lot of exciting stuff coming up. Basically, pretty busy up until mid-June.
I emerged from the tunnel under the train tracks and headed towards the last intersection on my walk on my way to school. In the bare bushes of one of the office buildings on the street twittered a bunch of small sparrows, not a care in the world. I watched them as they chattered, when all of a sudden a brown blur appeared in my periphery. A hawk (I believe a broad-winged hawk) was in a dive, ready to snatch up a meal from the group of sparrows. It swooped, then crashed into the bare branches of the bushes. I could tell immediately after it crashed that it was unsuccessful in its quest, and as it looked around during its shocked stupor, I could see in its face the expression of "Well, this is just great." The poor thing sat there for a moment and eventually freed itself, its ego more bruised than its body, as it flew atop the building and reconsidered what its next move was.
All in all, it was really cool, and I'm glad I got to witness it.
I noticed that the old topic for this awesome show was past the revival limit, so I thought I'd try to reboot discussion. Monday was the most recent episode, Northwest Mansion Mystery, and the next episode, Not What He Seems, will air on March 9.
So, let the discussion begin!
As for author theories,Spoiler
Also, the Teaser for "Not What He Seems" looks very promising. 8D

I made a Gravity Falls discussion topic in Completely Off Topic. Feel free to fuel the discussion over there if you're a fan of the awesome Disney show.
Go watch it. It's a great ride.
Also, slightly related, new Gravity Falls tonight! 8D
I used the resource known as Bulbapedia to acquire the complete list of electric type Pokémon (pure and dual-type) and entered in their official Pokédex color. Using the advanced mathematical concept of "counting" to total up how many electric types are of each color, I obtained the following results:
- Yellow: 18
- Blue: 8
- White: 4
- Black: 3
- Gray: 3
- Red: 3
- Brown: 1
- Pink: 1
