When we bought our current house three years ago, we inherited the mail order subscriptions of the previous owners. And try as we might to stop the monthly flow of clothes catalogues, we are still regularly inundated with bizarre fashion magazines.
None, however, reached the heights of the latest arrival.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring you THE fashion statement of Fall 2012:



And when you've finished laughing, check out the prices -- these guys are serious! The lederhosen alone cost 250 euros!
And for the ladies ... I'm sorry to say that I've already thrown out the issue with the Bavarian hunting smock with felt cap and falcon feathers, but this is still pretty ... amaaaazing:



Snoods are back!

When is it time to quit for the night?

Geek rapture

Honestly, what did nerdy geeks do before browser extensions and apps?

Ah yes, trainspotting.

Truly this is the time of geek rapture.

Pulling a sickie

Actually I am ill, really ill, really. It's a killer cold, already shared by everyone else in my inner circle, now reaching me, the most disease-resistant member.

It's also out of consideration for my colleagues that I'm staying home -- no one would appreciate my sputum-rattling cough and explosive, spluttering sneezes.

Which means I find myself in a rare situation: at home with no one else here. A few hours of unrestricted access to music I enjoy listening to (not Pitbull, for example); and uninterrupted, full-concentration "work" on own projects.

So far I've started copying old home videos onto the server and set up G+ to crosspost to my WordPress blog, although I'm afraid that at some point all my posts will get sucked into an infinite loop, ending in a spinning fireball of death (I think that's the correct technical description).

I lost almost an hour trying to connect the dvd drive to the server, almost going so far as to install a special toolkit. I just didn't get it! I tried all the USB ports, and each time, the drive powered up but failed to appear onscreen. Finally I checked the back of the drive -- the USB lead was not fully in! And that was the end of my problems. Sheepish is how I felt.

The second item is the reason for this post, to test whether it is automatically crossposted to my blog at riabacon.com.

My To Do List for the rest of the day:

- Print a photo (no small effort when one's photo workflow is so convoluted that a typical session usually ends after two hours of catalog management, with no actual output)

- Make a Prezi to show my vision of flexible language learning programs at my university (also useful for future job pitches)

- Make lots of squelchy synth noises with my Korg midi controller and Ableton Live (thanks Santas-in-law!)

- Update various websites

- eat, bathe, brush teeth, do laundry, get food, cook

Practical product placement at our local drugstore. I'm curious to see if they offer a crossover deal, such as "Buy one vibrator with lubricant and get a free pregnancy kit".

Quincy, where are you?

Not Mr Jones, but rather the podcaster responsible for a series of excellent jazz and latin mixes in the early noughties. While trying to work on a lengthy translation this evening, I kept stopping to marvel at the selection of tracks in the Brasil mix: Tamba Trio, Mario Castro Neves, Elis Regina, the list goes on (see playlist below).

I thought to updates my archives and add the podcast to Media Monkey, but I couldn't find any live trace of the podcasts. The person responsible, Anthony, according to comments left on the still grooving Bending Corners, has apparently moved on to other things.

Still, I'd like to take a moment to salute Anthony, and other podcast mixers for their love of great music, and their gift of sharing it with others.

Thanks... I'm also so sad because this excelent podcast gone out. I've already downloaded this one and other 27 episodes :)

Non-aligned movement

First HDR photo using a tripod, which means no more caffeine-induced wobbly hands and blurred photo merging.

What do you think?
