This will be my last post of gibberish on this blog. It used to be a weekly thing but the frequency has really fallen off in the past year or two. I'll probably do my usual posts at year's end about favorite books and music and that will be that.
And now onward with the gibberish.
|Adam Hillman's arrangements of everyday objects remind me why I loved my kids' I Spy books.|
"What is Zen? Simple, simple, so simple. Infinite gratitude toward all things past; infinite service to all things present; infinite responsibility to all things future." ~Huston Smith
|I just love the look of this Aglio E Olio with Peas and Prosciutto from everyone's favorite sexy chef, Giada.|
If you are a Spotify user (I am not) and love the feeling of frisson then this playlist created by a neuroscientist is for you.
I'm getting ahead of myself, but the release earlier this year of the 2018 remix of Pink Floyd's seminal album Animals will be on my list of favorite music of 2022. Here's a teaser. I hear the remix as being a bit brighter and more spacious than the original, kinda how I hear Steely Dan's Aja.
Here's the trailer for Marcel The Shell With Shoes On. It makes me want to see the film.
Hard seltzer made with hot dog water.
Let's get caught up with Zefrank: Damselfly and Beetle, The Platypus Conspiracy, True Facts: The Mosquito, True Facts: The Hummingbird Warrior, True Facts: Carnivorous Plants, True Facts: The Self-Sacrificing Amoeba, True Facts: Parasitic Birds. True Facts: Sea Cucumbers.
You ever wonder where the James Webb Space Telescope is? Just ask "Where is Webb?"
|When approaching a task, just get started.|
A fan of Miles Davis and vintage video games should enjoy Kind of Bloop, an 8-bit tribute to Davis' Kind of Blue.
CBS Sunday Morning did a segment on The Geometric Art of Sean Scully.
I suppose weird is subjective which explains this list of the 10 weirdest Genesis songs. But I know the list is flawed because it omits More Fool Me.
Here's a teaser for the album a Sense of Destiny by David Kollar & Arve Henriksen.
In what I consider to be a net loss for the DFW area, the Univ. of North Texas radio station KNTU changed formats from jazz to "indie." The jazz programming has been relegated to streaming. Given that KNTU's jazz studies program is a state if not national treasure, loss of jazz on the airwaves is dismaying. I hope to continue my annual purchase of the One O'clock Lab Band's CD.
This list of the NFL's GOATS at each position - like all "top" list articles - is designed to spark debate. But I am OK with all their selections. Jim Brown as running back isn't even debatable.
Some F-15 aviation pr0n.
ICYMI, the Air Race World Championship (successor to the Red Bull Air Race) has delayed its return to the skies until 2023.
Eyvind Earle is one of my favorite Disney artists.
Here's a teaser for O.R.k.'s new album Screamnasium.
I purchased the exhibit catalog but maybe you can visit the Walt Disney Family Museum and see The Jungle Book: Making of a Masterpiece.

Rumi is quoted as having said or written many wonderful things but this may be one of my favorites. "Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because those who love with their heart and soul there is no such thing as separation."
|Agnes Martin, Untitled, 1977. Her works "are light, lightness, about merging, about formlessness, breaking down forms.” source|
