was pleased to discover that one of my fav '90's bands, The House Of Love, had actually reunited a few years back and dropped a new album in 2013 (She Paints Words in Red) which is quite good and refrains their style from the 90's. Chadwick's voice is great and his lyrics are often oblique and interesting, a bit like Martin Phillips of The Chills, another favorite of mine.
I had picked these guys to be huge/ bigger than Radiohead (who started about the same time) -- and wasn't alone in that: NME and Melody Maker considered them to be the best new band when they started -- but the world was more in grunge- than pop-phase at the time.

Tonight's moon rise, just a short time ago. Shot near Snoqualmie, Washington as the nearly-full moon rises above Mount Si in the foothills of the Cascade mountains.

happy Friday G+ friends, shameless plug here for my startup: If you use cloud services such as DropBox, Evernote, Trello, Google Drive, O365 etc. please go to http://clipcard.com and try our free beta. In short, it's like Google search for your stuff, 'cept nicer (in some ways :)) and because it's your stuff your data and identity are always private to you.
There's no app to install (web-based) and free. We're trying to double the # of beta users we have by end of March, so please give it a go and let me know what you think, thanks!

I was once a standing-desk skeptic, too. But, after I made the switch four days ago, I could immediately sense a difference in how I felt: way more self-righteous.

In 2012 the University of Illinois, Tufts University, and Northwestern University teamed up to create electronics that are biodegradable. The combination of material science, technology and innovation led to transient electronics. 

Transient electronics is a field of technology that uses dissolvable materials to create electronics that can exist for seconds to years before dissolving into safe materials in water. This technology currently uses circuits made of silicon wafers that are sliced into extremely thin slices. The slices are thin enough that they will dissolve when exposed to water. The conductive parts of the circuit are made of magnesium, tungsten, and zinc, materials that are also water soluble. The electronic is covered by soluble polymers such as cellulose. The different types of covers can be chosen to provide different amounts of time before dissolving. When exposed to water they will dissolve into nothing but biological materials.

This use of biodegradable electronics will be especially beneficial in the medical field. Devices can be implanted and will dissolve on their own without the need of additional surgery to remove the device. Providing both a solution to perennial discard and the removal of medical devices, this field of technology will bring about a new generation of technology--but not yet, maybe once the patents expire.
