Whale fluke

Music update!

Today? Clash and Cash: London Calling and American III: Solitary Man (the one where Johnny Cash is terrifying on the Nick Cave song "The Mercy Seat": "And I'm not afraid to die...").

Those are in my CD pile. I'm starting my workday with Hans Zimmer's score to Drop Zone (1994). I love that Zimmer titled an insanely busy, 10-minute long action cue "Too Many Notes -- Not Enough Rests."

Yeah, I wanted eet a leetle more aggressive today, music-wise.

I have a spider loft.

This entry is written with spider fancier aoniedesade in mind:

A while ago, I noticed something small and translucent in the corner where the kitchen ceiling and the wall meet, above the window above my sink. Couldn’t tell what it was, as my ceilings are high; I couldn’t even really see a shape. But sometimes when I was at my computer (like I am now, but of course) it would look darker. Then, next time I’d look, it’d be back to its near-invisible state.

Then one night I was working in the kitchen when I saw a spider crawling along that edge, having appeared seemingly from nowhere (which spiders are good at), and it walked along. And it entered the translucent thing. And then stayed there.

I then figured out part of what was happening, though I actually wondered briefly, “It’s stuck?” Can spiders get stuck in other spiders’ webs? Hmm. But later, I looked and – voila! – no spider. So it wasn’t stuck. It was just hanging out. Almost literally.

A spider loft. I think that’s cute.
