Hey there. Van Hammersly here. Welcome to my inaugural post for the Limits of Science. I am originally from Rochester, New York – the home of Kodak, the never unappetizing looking garbage plate, and inspirational autistic teens with hoop dreams. I was raised by two violinists who banned me from rock music until the 8th grade. I thank them now for shielding me from the likes of Winger for so long. I listen to all types of music – heck, even country and classical sometimes. Stay tuned for my best music of ’08 post – only 30 or so days late.
