Amen! And by extension, the guy who invented MS Word's editor.

The Olympians reminded me of Cowboy Bebop...



..which I listen to pretty frequently.

I've been obsessed with The Olympians - The Olympians recently for more productive work and/or enjoyment



For relaxing writing music, Deep Divers - Dolphin Dreams



Usually when writing I just opt for white noise sorts of things like rain, but if the music is ambient enough hey.

I like to listen Ravel's Bolero while I'm cooking. Not only do I like it, but it's just the right length, or sometimes a minute or two longer, for me to prepare most of my meals. I like quick and easy cooking.

Works for me. I cook everything on high. :hehe

A free stream of Pagliacci from the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Very well done.

I envy you. Our property is mostly woods--tall oaks and hickorys. In addition to the daunting lack of sunshine, the dirt around here is mostly rocks. One cannot get through it with a shovel, only with a spading fork. I had a small gas tiller at one time but it simply could not make headway. I freecycled it. That might have been a mistake, but it relieved the pressure to attempt the impossible.

I was facing the prospect of digging around 400 square metres of garden by hand (4000+ square feet). I tackled it last year, pulling up weeds and digging it over enough to plant some veg, but it seemed like an awful lot of work.

So, I started eying cultivators, but a decent one is $800 new. That's an awful lot of vegetables.


But last week someone on a rural property advertised one for $200, which was an absolute bargain. I snapped it up with barely a second thought, and I reckon it took me less than an hour to plough/plow the whole back garden.  I'm taking up pavers on the few remaining areas so I can turn the whole area into one modestly-sized field.

I also planted 2 mulburry trees, 3 fig trees, two mango trees, two loquat trees and four banana palms, mostly around the edges. They're all waist-high, grown from cuttings, and even though they're a bit close together I'll just keep them pruned and mulch the branches.

It's late winter here, so I'm getting ready to plant out a load of veg. Still growing my seedlings while the weather is cold.

Iron Maiden dropped another song from their upcoming album Senjutsu.  Unlike "Writing on the Wall," this one isn't a video; just the song.

Gotta be honest... I don't care much for this one.  I like "Writing on the Wall" a lot--both the song and the video--but I'm not feeling "Stratego."    :shrug

Actually, that's my feeling about the band's music in general.  Very hit or miss for me.  And those hits are a recently acquired taste; in my younger days, I didn't like their music at all.

Anyway, here it is for anyone who hasn't heard it yet:
