Somehow I ended up as first cello in orchestra! I’m not quite sure how that happened considering how badly I did in the sight-reading, but I won’t complain. Some people haven’t auditioned yet, but at least it’s a good start.


About Simon

Hi. I'm Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo. I'm a mathematics postdoc at Dartmouth College. I'm also a musician; I play piano and cello, and I also sometimes compose music and study musicology. I also like to play chess and write calligraphy. This blog is a catalogue of some of my thoughts. I write them down so that I understand them better. But sometimes other people find them interesting as well, so I happily share them with my small corner of the world.

    Wow, nice job! Congrats – or to use my new favorite expression, sweet beans and cornpone!
    P.S. I just realized something. Your icon is a triangle…
    So Simon = triangle
    and since God is a triangle, triangle = God
    Therefore, by substitution, Simon = God
    (alternately, you could say that Simon – God = 0, which would mean that without God, Simon would be nothing, but let’s ignore that case for a little while. And of course I have to note that without Simon, God would be nothing. Anyway…)

      The flaw in that argument is that Simon$\not=$triangle.

      • mathfanatic says:

        Well, Simon is represented by a triangle, therefore he is represented by God. Unless the substitution property isn’t necessarily true for the “respresented” relation…but no, it would have to be. Nonetheless, you are respresented by a smiling triangle, or a smiling God, hence God smiles upon all of us. Maybe.
        I wonder how I got started on this. Oh yes, it was after I saw some wise joker put the “girls = evil” proof on the board of the math classroom today.

  4. congrats simon! yaya!
