Everyone I know has one of these Ikea trash bins— people my age like them in red, because they look like Devo Energy Domes. Due to their conical shape they are super tippy— I owe my basketball skills to this bin — if you miss and hit the edge, the bin will tip over and dump all the trash out! Alas, they don’t come in red anymore— just black and clear. It’s the end of an era. I guess we all have collectors’ items now. Or something. image

The real reason everyone has them is that they are $1.49. Such a bargain!

Someday I will own a keytar. Until then… these album covers will have to do.



castor dicitur a castrando

(the beaver’s self-castration)

There is an animal called the beaver, which is extremely gentle; its testicles are are highly suitable for medicine. Physiologus says of it that, when it knows that a hunter is pursuing it, it bites off its testicles and throws them in the hunter’s face and, taking flight, escapes. But if, once again, another hunter is in pursuit, the beaver rears up and displays its sexual organs. When the hunter sees that it lacks testicles, he leaves it alone. (The Aberdeen Bestiary)

Bestiary, Salisbury 13th century.

I am enjoying this. I am awesome at creating mixes that *I* will like anyway!


I was recently reminded of Robin Clark, who did backup vocals on Simple Minds’ album Once Upon a Time. Holy cow I idolized her when I was a kid. I tried to emulate her style, and nothing was probably more hilarious than seeing a 7th grader in a giant sparkly shirt with a huge belt, leggings and monster earrings. I didn’t do make-up, and there’s no way I couldn’t have gotten my hair to do that, but still. I felt cool. Robin Clark was (and probably still is) awesome!
