This song is so great! (And I don’t say that just because I used to live with one of the band members.)
♫ “Would Not Float” by Gideon Freudmann
No song link, sorry :(
I went out to sail my boat I was not sure it would float I put it into the pond, It sank, like a rock It was not such a surprise These things happen, I surmise Sometimes, though, it gets my goat It would not float
I’m no expert, but here’s some Irish music I like a lot:
- Noel Hill — In Knocknagree (all accordion/concertina and clogging, sounds like recorded live in a pub)
- The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and their families — Irish Folk Songs and Airs (more down-home sounding than some of their other work, probably because of the “and their families”)
- The Chieftains — The Best of The Chieftains
- Solas — Reunion (a live concert that I prefer to the studio album I have)
Scottish but sounds similar:
- Capercaillie — Sidewaulk
Had a nasty stomach bug Sunday night through Monday. I’m still trying to get back my energy and catch up on the hunger from 2 days of hardly eating.
There’s a lot of bunny talk going around today, and I hate to be a party pooper but bunnies don’t exist.

♫ MIDNIGHT PARTY: “Ievan Polkka” by Korpiklaani will revive you like strong coffee!

As the record just turn you learn, plus burn by the flame of the lyrics, which cooks the human brain providing overheated knowledge by means causing pain Makin' my brain head at yourself, start to melt While the Technics spin, the wax is on the belt
A midnight showing of that cult classic “Hungry Belly”: http://colintedford.com/2007/hungry-belly-1/
(This showing inspired by an urban legend about a babysitter who tried to eat a baby, recently seen on Facebook. h/t Billie for the debunk.)
Fellow New Hampshirefolk! You still have time to vote in the presidential primary (and then we can enjoy a brief respite from the barrage of phone calls).
I’m selling a folding desk for $20. It’s 36″ L x 18″ W unfolded (3″ W folded) x 29″ H and black.
The top is wood composite and the frame is metal. It doesn’t have any drawers, but it folds and unfolds pretty easily. I bought it new a year or two ago and used it as my main desk until recently. It has plenty of life left in it, but the top is kind of flimsy. I wouldn’t expect it to break unless you elbow-drop it, but you might find the way it flexes when you lean on it annoying (I sure do). Works great as a computer desk, eating place, crafting station (for crafts where you don’t press down on the table a bunch), cat perch, temporary whatever table, etc. Works less well for writing or drawing because of the flex (in my opinion — yours may differ).
If you want it, say so in a comment, message, or email to email@example.com.
♫ “R-Theme” by R-Tyme is beautiful Detroit techno from 1989 by Derrick May and Darryl Wynn.
