Once more, phdcomics has said it all... the fact that all this makes perfect sense to me shows my current relation to reality at the moment.

"After all there was another"

The whole context, reality and reason of the following song would require three pages of explanation to a non-portuguese person. One day I might try.

Plus, for all my friends out there, a song from Tom Jobim: "o resto e mar, e tudo aquilo que eu nao sei te contar".

My online radio station

I have put up a link to KEXP, the online radio station from Seattle I usually listen to when writing. This station has managed to keep me working so many times that I'm planning to acknowledge it in my thesis. But as no one is going to read THAT, I'd thought I'd record it here as well. Have a listen to it - at the moment it's playing some very good blues, but it does indie and all sorts as well.


On Saturday the 23rd of September, I was volunteering at the Antarctic Day of the Zoology Museum in Cambridge. My job was to help the kids make penguins. I finally got one of the pictures of the event, and decided to put it up here because:
- I was quite proud that I had the idea of taking pictures of the kids with their penguins, it was a shame it only occurred to me half-way through, as one kid made a 3-D penguin that wasn't recorded.
- The kid on the left was my favourite of all the ones who showed up. He has conjured up a semi-angelical face for the photo, but most of the time he was doing his penguin and directing others with a rakish lollipop stick coming out of his mouth, and looking as if he had just stepped out of Bugsy Malone. Also being extremely cheeky all the way through.
- And thirdly, because I took the picture. I really have to get myself a camera.
