Frisbee vs The Cat Toy App

One morning, a couple of weeks back, I was standing blearily in the kitchen waiting for the coffee to magically appear in the coffee machine. I had with me my shiny new ipad…and Frisbee. For his part, Frisbee was sitting there staring at me, seemingly willing me to do something interesting.

…And then I remembered seeing a video of a cat playing with a music program on the original ipad, and I wondered…Do they have a cat toy app for the ipad?

Answer: Yes they do.

When I got home later that day, I filmed him in action. (see below)

Maru to the Rescue

As an apology for being away for so long, I bring you the super cute Maru! He looks a bit like my Frisbee (but with shorter fur) and today I discovered that they sound rather alike, too.

(The last couple of weeks have been mega stressful, and caused much in the way of sleeplessness…also? My coffee machine broke. *toddler fists!*)

Day 16: Professor Elemental

How to even describe this song for you all? A steampunk rap song about tea? Hmmm…well, Professor Elemental does edge further into steampunk territory with his most recent album. How about just a catchy song about the love of tea as sung by a bloke in a pith helmet? How about both? However you want to describe it, here is Professor Elemental singing Cup of Brown Joy.

Day 15: Ocean is Theory

Full Disclosure: The lead singer of Ocean is Theory is my cousin. So, when I first heard that he had a band, I said to myself, “Fiiiiiine. I’ll give it a listen.” …But much to my delight, I thought they were great. Ocean is Theory is a Christian rock band (is the term “Alternative” still in use? ‘Cause they sound like good old alt rock to me.) and they recently signed with Razor and Tie (Squee!), first full length album due out this Summer. Obviously, I must celebrate this. Here is the video (shot a couple of years ago now) for More Than Conquerors.

Day 14: Napoleon XIV

Napoleon XIV is a big part of my High School music remembrances. (I had a friend who owned the whole album. There are so many good songs on it.) You may have heard of him through Doctor Demento or perhaps from a friend. This is the most famous of his songs. Napoleon XIV – They’re Coming to Take me Away Hahaaaaaaa.

Day 13: Men Without Hats

There were so very many “M”s to choose from, but in the end I had to go with a song that I actually played at my wedding. Perhaps it’s further proof that part of me is stuck in the 80s. Who can say? Either way I will always love: Men Without Hats – Safety Dance.
