R.Ring at MOTR

Wednesday, February 17, 2016


Always a pleasure to see R.Ring. This go ’round they were joined by cellist Lori Goldston and drummer Leo Deluca and it was good. Hankering for more. If I could be a groupie and follow them around I totally would, because they’re solid people to boot.

Edie, consoling the day after the root canal.

She’s been getting friendlier as the years go by. Still not into being petted, but she likes to be near.

Root canal

Got my first root canal. It was surprisingly not horrible; 45 minutes with barely any discomfort during the procedure.

The next day however, the area is swollen and a bit tender.

Had a interesting talk with the endodontist about drill bits and files, how new materials offer greater flexibility.

Root canal files

Lots and lots of files…

Then I got a picture of my beard under the microscope for giggles.

Kitchen failure: Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry rhubarb

Why there was fresh rhubarb available at the market, I’m not sure, but it spoke to me as it always does. My first attempt at strawberry rhubarb pie was pretty much a bust. It’s less pie and more fruit soup in a crust. Chalking this up to iteration.

Nice use of Eurostile Extended on this receiver (zoom). They refurbish and sell beauties like this at Shake It Records

Plus also? They’ve got a Beatles pinball machine.

Extra bonus? We’ve got some Wire & Twine tees available there now.

Lined pants

Earlier in the day: “Do your pants match your shirt?” he asked, continuing, “It’s like Garanimals.”

Indeed. This describes my entire wardrobe.

Related pimping: I’m really digging Lined pants.

I really really really like Charlie Kaufman. (Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich.) So I wanted to love this movie.

I didn’t.

That’s not to say it goes without merit, because the stop-motion animation is quite human and in some parts, amazingly so. But the crux of the story feels like something that could be solved in a short.
