Stood on my head…

and listened to the new album. Sounded great. I guess I am done.
Made last (?) changes to four of the songs this morning…

Car Stuff…

Luigi Colani tells it like it is – in German. I think he is right. Will the German car industry listen?

Well, and then there is this German car… although I am telling everyone who is willing to listen that we need to get rid of cars altogether.

What a nightmare. Removing Cars from People – America Ends its Affair With Autos
All things must come to an end, and so apparently it now is for America’s love affair with the automobile. Swept off her feet more than 100 years ago with promises of freedom, comfort and status, Ms. America has now had a change of heart. “The oil addiction, the misguided foreign affairs, the skyrocketing bills… it’s just gotten to be too much,” said Lady Liberty in a recent statement.

The sooner we start rethinking our towns the better.

Click opera – Against “hypocrisy”
100 people in a room: There are 100 people in a room, all doing A Bad Thing. They know it’s a bad thing, a thing that will damage the room and everyone in it, but they can’t stop. Suddenly a Visionary makes a powerful and moving speech. “We must stop doing The Bad Thing!” he says. His speech is effective: everyone stops. Except the Visionary himself, who keeps doing it. This, however, is a minor detail: the room is a better, safer place. Instead of 100 people doing The Bad Thing, only one is doing it. Suddenly a Commentator gets up. “Suckers!” he shouts. “You’ve stopped doing The Bad Thing, but the man who made you stop still does it! You’ve been had… by a hypocrite!” Soon everyone in the room is doing The Bad Thing again.

But tell me, please, who has damaged the room more, the Visionary or the Commentator? Who has the best chance of helping the room?


Walking from the studio to the house barefooted for the first time this year is nice. Sitting on the ledge in the photo below is nice. Photo was taken a while ago, today we had sunshine and blue skies. Right now I am waiting for a new CD to burn.

Had lunch in town and visited a few galleries. TAI shows a few of Seiju Toda’s photographs:

Seiju Toda created a series of 33 compositions called Heian, a term meaning peace and serenity. In a meticulous process that took several years, Toda both assembled the pieces using plain wood and living creatures – birds, fish, insects, reptiles – and photographed them with careful consideration for the natural elements.

You can see more of the images here. Bought the book Heian, which is sold at the gallery.

Another gallery had this sign inside, which looks like the OL logo turned about 45 degrees:
