Jeez, I’ve heard two Björk albums and I’m hooked. I’m kinda scared to listen to more of her albums, though, because the two I’ve heard are the “weird” ones (Homogenic and Medúlla).

Anyway, I like what Björk I’ve heard.

Scientists explain the orangutan’s unique approach to problem solving with this example: If a chimpanzee is given an oddly shaped peg and several different holes to try to put it in, the chimp immediately tries shoving the peg in various holes until it finds the correct hole. But an orangutan may stare off into space or even scratch itself with the peg. Then, after a while, it offhandedly sticks the peg into the correct hole while looking at something else that has caught its interest.

Library Haul!

Checked out a few books. I’ve read one of them before and bits of another one (during school, though, so that one doesn’t count). Anyway, here they are:

Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett - Good Omens
James Joyce - Dubliners
H.P. Lovecraft, ed. S.T. Joshi - The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories
Cormac McCarthy - Blood Meridian
Terry Pratchett - The Color of Magic

So yeah, there they are. I think I’ll start with Good Omens, since that’s the one I’ve already read, and sprinkle in stories every once in a while from Lovecraft and Joyce. This could be fun.

I’m gonna read as many postmodern novels as there are in my local library. That’s my retrospective new decade resolution.

baby's first words

  • baby: d-d-da..
  • father: daddy?
  • baby: dada /ˈdɑːdɑː/ or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. Many claim Dada began in Zurich, Switzerland in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter but the height of New York Dada was the year before, in 1915.[1] To quote Dona Budd's The Language of Art Knowledge,
  • Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. This international movement was begun by a group of artists and poets associated with the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. The origin of the name Dada is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word. Others maintain that it originates from the Romanian artists Tristan Tzara's and Marcel Janco's frequent use of the words "da, da," meaning "yes, yes" in the Romanian language. Another theory says that the name "Dada" came during a meeting of the group when a paper knife stuck into a French-German dictionary happened to point to 'dada', a French word for 'hobbyhorse'.[2]
  • The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature, poetry, art manifestoes, art theory, theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. In addition to being anti-war, Dada was also anti-bourgeois and had political affinities with the radical left.

So I’m doing Pokemon Sapphire version, attempting a Nuzlocke challenge for the fourth time (the first three times I got killed way too early…), and I’ve been nicknaming my Zigzagoons after the David Bowie albums chronologically, starting with Ziggy Stardust

This is the first time I’ve reached Diamond Dogs

And I just caught Low. Spectacular.

Level 45 Swampert, Level 46 Crobat. 5 badges. Sweet.

This could turn out either insanely well or insanely badly.

If I get to Low, I know I’ll have a level 80 Swampert by the time I reach the Elite Four…or maybe Linoone. Because that would be hilarious.

souschen:

i think instead of the woman taking her husband’s name when they get married or doing the hyphenated thing

couples should just smash their last names together

so like if a Smith married a Grabowski you could be Smabowski or Grabith or Grasmithski

and then as the generations go on the names just get more and more ridiculous

why aren’t we doing this

Shit, I might actually get married to someone just so we can do this.
