What’s your office stereotype? (via Some Nerve & JNDIV)

Thanks for sharing Joe!

So my magnificent asshole of a little brother (hey, Jack) made this awesome film about office stereotypes that you should all watch now. It’s only four minutes and I almost guarantee you will laugh.

Wait. Hold it. Worlds colliding. Fred Gundry and Jike did this? and and Thomas posted it to tumblr so I saw it? Key/NoVA implosion!

these pictures of spem whales were taken by dr. peter g. allinson off the coast of dominica, who says he spends four days to a week trying to photograph the animals. divers only use snorkels when swimming with the whales, so as not to disturb them with air bubbles from scuba tanks.

"when they interact with us they approach us very closely, rolling over again and again, trying to get us to rub their abdomens and bodies," allinson says. “when you start getting close to them you feel nervous, intimidated and then as they interact with you feel intense pleasure. you realise they are intelligent.”

sperm whales have the largest brain of any animal, and dive to depths of three kilometres, making them them the deepest diving mammal. the clicking sound they make is also the loudest sound made by any animal.

(the second photo of a pod of sleeping sperm whales was taken by magnus lundgren)

Hayao Miyazaki animated rain, which means every frame is hand drawn. 

Good grief. I thought the first one was real. Then I thought they were real with some animation added… 

Yay Miyazaki.

Every piece of music starts with some strong feeling that I get swept up in (I’m sure it’s the same for most artists). To put this feeling into music I have to lock myself in the studio, immerse myself in that feeling and go explore the bleeding edges of it. It’s messy: I cry, laugh, dance, go a little crazy. When I appear every now and then to go to the bathroom or make tea (I tend not to eat when I’m in this state) I probably look a little wild eyed and disturbed. This state is precious and fleeting, so I try to avoid email or talking to anyone so as not to break my bubble and lose it.

Before our son was born it was relatively easy. I could turn off email without my world falling apart too much and my husband would leave me alone, knowing that I’d be fun again in a couple days. But nowadays emails increasingly demand to be answered and how can I ignore my son when he sees me, yells “Mama!” and runs into my arms?! So I have to do my best to efficiently work through whatever I’m experiencing in order to be normal again in time for the family dinner.

Anyway, on Wednesday I had the feeling and I acted on it. This one is vaguely about standing on the top of a mountain and being irresistibly drawn towards the edge. What if I leap? Will I fly? Will I fall? Will someone catch me?

It’s not done, but I want to share it anyway. I don’t normally like to play music for people before it’s finished because to me those tiny endless details that take weeks to polish are what take a piece of music from ordinary to special. That said, there is always something compelling about my rough first pass, when I’m just feeling it and not worrying about technique or sound mix or how it will be perceived. I think that’s one of the reasons why I love performing so much, because I get to feel each piece of music anew every night. So before I flesh this one out, polish it, turn it into something album-worthy and give it a proper title, here is the last 48 hrs in musical form.

Salem Saberhagen

So I’m guessing everyone else just rewatched Sabrina on Hulu, too. Salem gets downright edgy in the later seasons! Best part of the show.

Baldwin’s Book Barn in Pennsylvania.

These photos are a little ridiculous in terms of processing, but I still want to go visit. PA is sorta nearby…
