Is it me or did a bird crash into this window? The smudges on the outside really suggest it. Fascinating stuff! Except for the bird, that is :)

Remember Noah Kalina, the guy who took a picture of his face for 6 and a half years? Well, he still continues to do it. I'm guessing he wants to have a complete record of what he looked like through all his life.
In his website you can see all the photos, by year. It's incredible that you can easily tell in which ones he was sick, just judging by his face :)
I really admire his strength of will, to be able to carry on with his project :)
One thing that both annoys and amazes me is the limited number of chord combinations in most songs. It's extremely frequent to hear a musical composition and get that feeling that you heard it before. And we are probably right most of the times.
In the last AC/DC album there is a song entitled "Big Jack". As soon as i heard it i immediately recalled another song by a very polemic Portuguese singer from the the 80s: AntÃ³nio VariaÃ§Ãµes (look up his songs, they were pretty innovative back then, actually).
I still trying to think why i am writing this but guess that i can't help wondering, first, why aren't there any more musical notes (i guess i should look that up) and, second, why most bands don't explore more and keep falling to the same chord combinations all the time. The easy explanation is the amount of money that you can make with little work on a catchy pop song, but i feel sad if that's the only one.
My mother just offered me a mini zen garden. How cool is that?
Would you wear them?

It looks cool, judging by the trailer/sample :)
Btw, it's his birthday today. He turns 70 but he shows the mental youth of a 30 yo.
...right around the corner from the place where I'm staying now.
And as proper Japanese culture fan-boy I could not resist the temptation of buying a new kimono. Boy, does this bring back memories from when I practiced Karate and Tai Chi :D
Respect to all people that do these amazing time-lapse videos. It takes a lot of time and especially dedication to do something really simple, and a whole lot more to do one like this:
I always like giraffes, but this guy really loves them. His objective is to have people send him 1 million drawings/pictures of giraffes created by hand (i.e. not with a computer) until 2011.
Check it out and upload your original giraffe creations :D
