Returning to Lilypond

After receiving a short note from Graham Percival regarding the known issue in the Lilypond GUI and Leopard, the latest release does play nice with TextMate. I have been able to start the tutorials and even create a little midi file. The reason I’m doing this is because GarageBand finally adds the ability to create custom ringtones for my iPhone. I can create the music in TextMate, use Lilypond to make a midi file, pull it into GarageBand and go nuts. Fun. I’ve almost got Christopher O’Riley’s version of Bulletproof in there. I haven’t played with Lilypond in some time and it’s the learning curve is a little steep.
On another note, Tess has taken her first ballet class. Tammy asked her, “Don’t you want to be a doctor?” “No, I’m going to be a ballet girl.” So much for the fancy retirement community. I love her so…
