…which is indeed where I am sitting at the moment. Taking a tea break from Stuff That Must Be Done, and charging my phone which has died. Listening to kd lang sing Neil Young songs in a way that breaks the heart.
Gorgeous voice, that woman.
This is indeed a writers’ city. And a coffee-drinker’s city, too. This particular Blenz is packed with weirdos on their laptops [self not excluded here]. Blenz, you must know, has the Best Hot Chocolate in the Universe, due to their most excellent employment of dark Callebaut chocolate chips…
However, I am drinking chai tea and catching up on things, as hot chocolate is a frivolity, best indulged with friends present.
Okay, to business. It’s been pointed out to me [by a kind — darned cute — reader] that some of the videos I’ve linked to here on the blog have vanished. This is a sad reality [particularly in the case of my pre-Pi Day celebration of the fella playing his musical version of pi on many instruments — very sad to see that link lost!], but sometimes people yard their YouTube confections down, and live with it we must. However, if you trip on over to YouTube, you’ll find a whole bunch of lovely Pi songs — many cribbing unabashedly from Don McLean — for your enjoyment next March 14th!
Other things that have grabbed my [admittedly easily distracted] attention lately?
How ’bout this…?
This is but one of a selection of postcards created by the artist Clement Valla of the strangely distorted views of bridges on many google earth screen shots. Something about rendering the 3-D image to 2-D…not unlike what might happen if you travel from one dimension of time to another, no?
See the rest HERE. SO cool. [hat tip to boingboing]
Okay, what else? I’ve got a lovely moon post planned, but sadly have not had a chance to look at my Supermoon shots from the other night as yet, so will save the whole thing for later.
So instead, here’s another image [this one just a mock-up] of an idea that thrilled me this week — the combination of silicon chips and neurons. Is this the way Cylons capture human intelligence? I like to think so…
[Again, via boingboing. So, why are you not reading their blog yet?]
And to finish, a dogblog entry that made me laugh out loud — the expression on the guilty party’s face is priceless…
