this was obviously cuter in person


Slowly working my way through the chocolate

As you see, I’m a bit of a sampler, working on everything incrementally. I hope to be done by the end of the year.

A misguided solution

The premature summer has brought out ants in my room and so I’ve been clogging their entrance with salt so far, but that hasn’t entirely deterred them. Today I decided ever so brilliantly to add perfume to the salt and then clog to both make a physical and scent barrier that they’d avoid. I have a bit of a cold so I didn’t really notice the smell but after I came back from washing up, jesus.

Maybe after this week I won’t be able to smell anything at all. I’ll let you know if the ants come back…

The first in a series on couples

Barrels spending their afternoon overlooking Lake Waban


Elmo cookies at Roche Bros. I found this sort of horrifying, actually


AGH! Finally caught it on phone camera, though you can’t see it clearly at all…

Youtube Symphony Orchestra (YTSO)

Act 1

Wicked cool concept, and check out the attractive halvie cellist (first stand) 😀 There’s a profile of him about 20 minutes in and while he may not be a productive member of society, well, many attractive people just aren’t.
Both Acts have little bits of introduction by this guy who resembles the villain from the James Bond Move “Tomorrow Never Dies” (or something like that).

Act 2

*please* watch the first couple minutes. Very cute teamwork piano-playing by kids.
If you watch on, you can see Tan Dun going crazy insane. There’s also Yuja Wang, a pianist whose talents are wasted not playing the Super Mario Bros. theme

Towards the middle and end of Act II things get experimental but with really ehhh results, but maybe if more of these YTSO concerts are done, maybe it’ll get pretty cool…(optimism, ja?)
