Winter is a time for dead plants isn’t it? Well if I learned anything from the BBC’s Planet Earth series, its that plants still live during winter, they just sleep a lot…like polar bears…or something.
But you’ve got a warm place to stay don’t you? Why not invite a cool plant into your home and spice things up so you don’t get cabin fever. Get a cactus and then you won’t even have to worry about watering the thing all that often.
p.s. you probably don’t need a huge one.
We’ve all seen it. We’ve probably all done it too!
Cell phones have their advantages certainly. Call home and see if there are enough eggs to make a kische, call your GF to tell her that the snow is horrendous and you’ll be a while longer. Of course with each new development (Text messages, Instant messages, emails, internet) new social graces become necessary. It isn’t polite to text in the middle of a conversation and you shouldn’t talk on your phone during a movie.
But do we really need our phones with us ALL of the time? I’m talking the crazies who, while running at the gym, have their phones out sending text messages. Or even better yet the lady who comes to the pool and brings her blackberry in a plastic bag so that she can send off messages after every lap. Now I will admit that there are certain situations (your wife is expecting any moment, or you are a doctor on call) in which you might need your phone glued to you. But for the rest of us let’s have some patience and enjoy the time away from our social network.
p.s. Why does Beyonce make me think of cell phones? Iunno how is Beyonce so damn good?
Things have been moving slowly for us. Not slowly bad, but slowly and surely like the little train who could. Crafting fine recordings with little experience takes time and of course we end up with some mistakes (who knows where that first drum track went? It obviously didn’t like the rest of the song).
But onward and upward we think. Don’t you?
p.s. Slow as it might be recording is a bulahhst!
Let’s get serious for another week
Your life’s on the line
Your job’s not far behind
So listen to a tasty jam
Then turn up the celling fan
Then Get back to work
p.s. It’s crazy that we hold onto these ludicrous personae.
p.s. George Lucas is a master of combining money making schemes
I know the first things people usually think about when Winter is brought up aren’t very happy. Shoveling loads of snow, cars not starting, icy roads, more darkness than usual, getting sick.
All of those negatives combined make Winter an unhappy time. I’ve seen pretty much everyone I work with getting sick or grumpy or grumpy and sick. Eeeeesh my friends, we’ll never make it alive if we all act this way.
Winter has so many potential beauties that people seem to ignore:
-The Stars in winter and the moon are so much clearer. Check them out some night.
-Freshly laid snow means new tracks from animals and that sturdy chap that walks everywhere.
-Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are way more enjoyable when they warm you up from the chill outdoors.
p.s. Hoar frost inspired this post
