Octopi!

But on endless mud seafloor, where are you fleeing to? In other words, a coconut-carrying octopus may be slow, but it’s always got somewhere to hide.

Crazy things

Sometimes i do things that i think are crazy things.

I have a stacked washer/dryer in the kitchen. Two things have bugged me about it since i moved in: the dryer vent was poorly connected to the outside and it never seemed level so it shook while operating. So i decided to remedy these issues.

I had no idea what i was getting into when i started. Three hours later i had learned several things. The only way to get a proper look at the legs of a stackable unit is to lay it down or pick it up. I laid it down, being unable to pick it up. I learned that the legs on the rear of the unit are supposed to move in opposition to each other and sometimes one gets stuck. Kicking them alternately works to get 'em moving again. I learned that the best time to connect the vent ducting to the outside is when the damn unit is out of the way. Most importantly i learned that i can lay down and pick up a stackable unit with a minimum of heavy breathing, while concentrating on using my legs.

Now it is pretty damn level and free from rocking.

Yay.

Florence + The Machine

Okay.....
Sometimes I fall in love with dumb and total poppy mainstream music.
This is one of those occasions to a "T".

I saw her mentioned on Footytube (soccer highlight website) of all places.

She is like Enya/Tori Amos/and the tinniest dash of Bjork.

I can't get enough.

Hold Still - Manuok Video

My brother just got back from another tour in Italy. His band, Manuok, and a great italian band, Grimoon, toured from Venice down to Sicily and back. I managed to catch up with them for a couple of shows up north and in Rome. It was super fun!

Anyhow, he put together this swell little video:
