If only the coffee from K-cups didn't taste so damn good...

+Fred Bradbury, your opinion needs an adjustment, IMO. 😉

No burnt percolator coffee ever compared to Starbucks French Roast. When I lived outside Berkeley, I became a Peet's addict. But it doesn't taste the same. I'm not sure if the coffee has changed or my palate has. But Starbucks French Roast is very good.

I'd have a higher opinion of Game of Thrones if this was the theme song.

Fantastic. And I already have a high opinion of GoT.

Have you watched Fargo on FX? That show and the new season of Louie are the best things on TV these days in my never humble opinion.

Fascinating letters. Interesting correspondence.

That experience would certainly change one's view of life.

Chickens!  Chickens!  I've been looking all over the web for chickens.  That big yellow one is kind of weird, though.
 
I got a visit a bronze foundry today, an impressive place where a guy named Morgan MacDonald, with a little help from his friends, makes bronze sculptures. Below is some silent video and photos I snapped off while I was there.

It shows the nearly-complete sculpture he's making for the Sealers Memorial in Elliston, Newfoundland.

Resident's of St. John's, Newfoundland, probably know his work from "The Rower" at Quidi Vidi Lake and the sculpture on George Street.  When I saw what went into making the bronze, it's kind of amazing that it ever turns out right.

I'd have paid to be in Charlie Parr's audience a few days ago...

Apparently this anti-Redskins commercial will air during Tuesday’s NBA finals. Good.

Someone emailed me to tell me that urban beekeeping should be outlawed because bees are a pest to cats. I responded by shooting a short video of the one hive I keep in an urban area.

Here's the sculptor's website:

Here's some info on the nearly-complete sculpture that's in most of the photos:

That's pretty much all I know.

Jolie Holland...

http://www.anti.com/artists/jolie-holland/

...wrote this on her Facebook page (with this photo):

"They found Jack Kerouac's first, lost book. And the editor decided that some of my lyrics ought to be the epigraph. Yeah, No. I'm stunned, and don't know how to feel about it. It's an incredible honor."

It's from the about-to-be-publish first / lost novel from Jack Kerouac, "The Haunted Life."

It's about time Jolie Holland got this level of recognition.  Her music should be celebrated like Bob Dylan was when he first showed up.  At least she is in my house.
