This sign is on Reddit right now as if it’s some sort of anomaly or Engrish. What? I thought everyone knew this from like grade school on. Make yourself look big, don’t turn your back, and fight back if it jumps you. What’s so hard about that? Other than the fighting a mountain lion bit.
Eat a jar full of Farman’s “zesty dills” and then immerse the contents of a Claussen’s halves jar in the flavorful brine. Wait one week. Absolutely amazing.
That is one huge Buddha. Pretty deep in China.
Man, yeah… and I’ve seen some big Buddhas in my time.
Robo-ant! Looks sweet. I’m kind of glad it can’t walk very well at the moment.
The saddest/greatest thing.
Women – Black Rice
Women’s self-titled album is sort of like a cross between Deerhunter and Grizzly Bear or something. It’s unpredictable, virtuosic, and good pretty much all the way through. But the whole time, you keep thinking “what kind of music is this exactly?” From faultless chorused voices in the insanely short “Group Transport Hall” and “Black Rice” to shimmering and mystical soundscapes like “Woodbine,” they cover a lot of ground. The whole album is worth your time, so check them out.
The Gray Field Recordings – Rune of the Moon and Endymion
One of the standout tracks from Gold Leaf Branches, a compilation from Digitalis. I’m not a fan of spoken word but it’s nonsensical enough to be inoffensive. The artist has a knack for the mystical auditory environment; you can hear some more at Last.fm.
