First of all, I’ve got a beef with Yahoo! And an email account, too. I’m being deluged with dozens and dozens and hundreds of junk emails daily. Since I’ve not signed up of for Internet offers I guess Yahoo! sold my email address to various spam services. Was that nice ? Then there’s signing in, it takes for damn ever. The screen jumps and changes, dumping the information you entered, sending you straight back to square one.
Well, that’s enough of that. Let’s head for the showers.
Shower Curtains — I fell in love with this the moment I saw it. Who wouldn’t? A masterpiece like this adds a little kitsch to the dullest, most utilitarian room in the house. The one above is from Singing in the Rain. You know, the Hollywood classic with Gene Kelly.
There’s also Yellow Submarine and 20,000 Leagues. Each one is a work of art and turns a shower into the stuff of legends. You’ll find them at: http://www.mxyplyzyk.com and at their store in New York.
Brandt Brauer Frick — they’re a German trio of instrumentalists who’ve been described as minimalist techno fused with classical overtones. Yeah, whatever. Their video, Caffeine, is entirely drawn with pencil on paper. Kind of mesmerizing.
The Keeper of Lost Causes –if you’re a fan of mysteries, brooding Scandinavian mysteries in particular, you ought to give this one a shot. A guilt-ridden, deeply flawed detective, who survived a shooting one of his colleagues didn’t, is promoted to head a cold case department of one in the Danish police. The first case he tackles involves a politician who’s been missing for five years. She’s not dead.
That does it for this, the fourth edition of half-baked. If you come across something you think is interesting or unusual, please point me in that direction. Have a terrific weekend and thanks for stopping by.
