I was born in Michigan and I've also lived in Kentucky, New Hampshire, and Texas, but I always seem to be coming back to Michigan. I speak English and not much else. I had some French and Spanish in high school, German, Russian, and a little bit of Chinese in college, but it's been so long that I can't remember much. I have a somewhat large collection of Teach Yourself books and similar language-learning books that I never seem to find time to study in depth. Recently I tried learning Japanese, and I got to the point where I could sort of figure out the latest Zelda game in Japanese with heavy use of JWPce to look up words that I didn't know (i.e., most of them). But spoken Japanese goes by too fast for me to pick up much of anything. Besides languages, I also have an interest in microtonal music, which I play on my Yamaha DX7II keyboard or put together one note at a time in Cakewalk with the piano roll. I used to do computer art with Fractal Painter (now Corel Painter), but it's been so long since I stopped regularly drawing that I'm out of practice. I also used to collect bird song recordings.
