Squirrels in tubes, the inner light of atheism, and a dire need for new clothes

I’m a huge fan of squirrels, they’re such lovely, cute, crazy creatures :D And they’re absolutely irresistibly cute when they’re babies.
Today, after following a link from Digg to that ‘Squirrel beneath the Macbook‘ video, I’ve ran into Elizalalala’s videos and I was just left in awe. She’s a wildlife rehabilitator and has a handful of videos of various animals she takes care of. The link will take you to the third page of her videos on YouTube, because it’s the most squirrelly page at the moment ;)

Continuing with the tubeage: try playing these two videos simultaneously: "The Picard/Crusher ‘love story‘"and this performance of "The inner light". Funny how easily they go together, sound-wise :) Also, the comments on "The inner light" are just one more proof that a big percentage of internet users are morons.

I don’t know if I’m an atheist, agnostic, or whatever — terms mean nothing when it comes to religion, but I certainly don’t believe in that one superior being that created us and everything else. And I certainly won’t take every single sentence written in The Bible (which is a really nice collection of interesting stories) — or, for that matter, any other major religion’s guidebook — for granted. Because doing that just doesn’t make any sense. Now "God’s debris", that made some sense ;)
Don’t worry, I won’t go on rambling about religion, I just wanted to post a link to "Peter of the Port", and his interesting post about "The new atheism".

BLDGBLOG points us to ‘Growing mountains of technology waste‘ — interesting read.

The last part of the title is a reminder to myself. Because I really am in dire need of new clothes.

p.s: you might notice some anomalies on the site in the next few days, I’m adding some new things, but WordPress is behaving a bit quirky.

The first kittens already know how to swim, you suckers!

Eh, don’t mind the title.

I’ve decided that it’s OK if I post some work in progress music from time to time, when I’m sure it’s good enough for the general audience ;) I’ve created a new category just for that, and it’s called "The rabbit hole". For no particular reason. None at all.

So, why not begin with some recent cookies, aye? Here are three tracks that I’m working on at the moment:

"Sunken flowers and water homes" is so far still a product of one afternoon (last Saturday, the 10th, to be precise) and I’m extremely satisfied with the outcome :)

"The labyrinth" is from back in January, and I think I worked on it just one afternoon too. It’s far from finished, but it sounds decent enough.

Both are orchestral, but "Sunken flowers and water homes" has a drum track (one that I’m really proud of) and "The labyrinth" has some timpani’s and crash whooshes here and there :)

On the other hand, "A thousand sunsets across the universe" is an ambient track with a fat beat and a message of peace, love and unity at its beginning (what?). More or less, another one-day track. Why aren’t I inspired like this all the time? Pfft.

I hope you’ll find these three pieces interesting enough to write a short comment – it would really mean a lot to me.

Thanks for listening! :)
