I’m not well versed in dance, but I really enjoy these combinations of motion and the exploration of physical spaces. I’m also quite taken at how stories/narratives emerge, between the dancers, as the piece continues onward.
I love fun Star Trek videos, particularly the ones where repetition plays a key role. Here’s a supercut of every time McCoy reports that someone’s dead.
Bob was over today, helping us improve the electrical situation in the basement. While we’ve had the basement lights working in a temporary manner, we’re slowly getting them wired up more officially.
I wasn’t quite expecting the maze-like interior, but we got taken downstairs and to some far back room. Because there were eight of us, we got seated in a room off the main area… and though some other folks sat at the nearby tables, it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves.
After the “Baby on Board” signs proved ineffective, Johnny decided to put a new sticker on his van.
Was reminded of The Hood Internet recently, and got lost in this incredibly long remix video (clocking in at 30+ minutes).
Lots of 90’s favorites in there, and a kind of non-stop wave of nostalgia at every turn.
The effect of the building’s windows adds a great touch to this performance, as the mirror effect seems to double the number of participants (and also provides a counter-motion to each performer).
Despite our propensity to stay home still (outside of errands)… Liz and I opted to go out for dinner, as part of my birthday celebrations. Of course, we headed back to our new favorite spot: the Franklin Room.
While there were seemingly a ton of people around, we passed several liminal spaces along the way.
I was wondering whether I should have rented another power augur, but it actually wasn’t too bad of a process with a post-hole digger. Which is a tool we have, surprisingly.
Not something I would ever think I’d need, but we’ve needed it several times now.
A fun and incredibly beautiful day today, with the weather in the upper 50’s and a hint in the air that Spring is just around the corner.
Bob was over today, with some additional materials. We’ve got plans to repair the back porch (and replace the sections I demo-ed a few days ago).
“Mamma told me angels are watching us
In a green Volkswagen van
In the cities of hippies and angels
Just singing along to a Amy Grant”
I’m torn on this step, because right now I feel like I’m procrastinating. I think it’ll be good to actually document my setup… and I think it’ll also help to share my design with others, because I’m positive I’m doing tons of things wrong. Or at a minimum, I have lots of opportunities for refinement.
What I should be doing now is transferring things to a Perma-Proto board, and to start figuring out how to enclose all this stuff into an actual, honest to goodness box.
