Purely psychic

At lunch a voice in my head said, “Go to Stock Exchangers, they have a Dan-Echo for less than half-price,” so I went and they did. How freaky is that?

Online reviews say some of these have a problem with faulty wiring “that looked like it was done by a monkey” causing noise. So I’m wonder if that’s why it was there. I’ll find out I guess.

New product profile

March 31, 2006

There’s something slightly disturbing about this hydroponics product profile:

“Its putting 15% more body fat on cows when fed to the grass on dairy farms. Imagine what it will do to your crop!
Beneficials Bio-Link Plus is HydroGardens way of re-introducing a wide range of naturally occurring beneficial microbes and fungi that have long since largely disappeared from the environment. These naturally occurring organisms aid in the natural process of plant growth and development. Beneficials Bio-Link Plus is made using a unique sophisticated brewing process that helps maximise the microbe colonisation and shelf life of the product which offers the maximum benefit to growers and their crops. As well as increasing plant growth and quality, Beneficials Bio-Link Plus strengthens plants making them more able to withstand insect attack.”

Need batteries for my pedals, batteries for my head

Final Navigator weekend. Looking forward to being done with that. Not that it hasn’t been enjoyable, but you can only take so much of that kind of enjoyable.

Also looking forward to having all my Sundays open for League practices. Though, of course, I have to invent some kind of imaginary gig for Ken to be interested. When I was at Arbutus buying a mic stand, some kid said he saw my “ambient band” at the Cambie. I thought he had me confused with someone else, someone actually playing ambient music, then I realized he meant League.

Forgot my travel mug here at the office last night so I have only a half cup of cold coffee in a ceramic cup in from of me. I’ll be asleep by noon.

Strange thing: we set our alarms last night but when I woke this morning, at 7:34, both were turned off.

Oh, Moz

“I fully realize that the absence of any Morrissey concerts in Canada is unlikely to bring the Canadian economy to its knees, but it is our small protest against this horrific slaughter,” he said.

Morrissey also alleges that Harper “states that the slaughter is necessary because it provides jobs for local communities.”

“Construction of German gas chambers also provided work for someone – this is not a moral or sound reason for allowing suffering,” he said.

The 46-year-old singer concludes his message by calling for his fans to boycott Canadian goods, saying that Canada has “placed itself alongside China as the cruelest and most self-serving nation.”

Drowning in appurtenances

Divestment is going less swimmingly than I’d envisioned.

Divesting in the future

March 27, 2006

Giving serious thought to a major divestment of bric-a-brac. I wonder if Helen’s still going to run a thrift shop out of their apartment… I could set her up with half her start-up stock I’m sure.

I also have a tub full of graphic design crap (er, tools and equipment) I haven’t even looked at since graduating. Time for that to go.

I bet there’s stuff in various closets to been done away with too.

And the kitchen.

Everything must go!
