Re-fresh (fresh again)

Hot off the presses, folks…

its Brother John’s new EP, the tiniest bones the infinite everything

and it is truly a beautiful piece of music.

What’s in there you ask??

I was lucky enough to be involved in this project by contributing a mini book:

Other new (spring) things:

My shop got an incredible face-lift (as predicted):

oh yes!!!! You better believe I got Moo cards with those beautiful puppies. (http://us.moo.com/)

I’m also reading The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky. Last night’s recorded quote:

“And now imagine that in the final outcome I do not accept this world of God’s, I do not admit it at all, though I know it exists. It’s not God that I do not accept, you understand, it is this world of God’s, created by God, that I do not accept and cannot agree to accept. With one reservation: I have a childlike conviction that the sufferings will be healed and smoothed over, that the whole offensive comedy of human contradictions will disappear like a pitiful mirage, a vile concoction of man’s Euclidean mind, feeble and puny as an atom, and that ultimately, at the world’s finale, in the moment of eternal harmony, there will occur and be revealed something so precious that it will suffice for all hearts, to alloy all indignation, to redeem all human villainy, all bloodshed; it will suffice not only to make forgiveness possible, but also to justify everything that has happened with men-let this, let all of this come true and be revealed…”

Oh Ivan! Good luck, Ivan!

I’m reading the Everyman’s Library edition of this book. (http://www.randomhouse.com/knopf/classics/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780679410034) which is just absolutely beautiful.

Off to Perkins Center for the Arts for tonight’s lecture!

Impending

Ladies and Gentlemen start your bonefolders!

Lots of new things to come. I found some great vintage fabric with little vignettes of pioneer scenes, and an awesome photographer to show them in all their glory. Not to mention shes a little genius. Well, shes actually regular sized. See:

The gift of her blog can be received here: http://blogpresents.tumblr.com/

I’m also almost done reading a book on DaVinci, The Romance of Leonardo DaVinci by Dmitri Merejkowski. And I have been in good company:

She appreciated the same quotes as I did. Wonder if I’ll be the last person to read this book…

Literature

Now Reading: Ulysses by James Joyce

Inspired by Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels list:

http://www.randomhouse.com/modernlibrary/100bestnovels.html

I decided I’d better read Ulysses. I love reading the classic novels, and I fearlessly headed into this one just as any other. Although it has been a joy to experience the drop cap taken to whole new levels:

I have really had a hard time following this train of thought style writing (which I wouldn’t have predicted). Thanks to spark notes, I have an idea of what is going on. ¬†Anyone else read this? What is your experience?

Also, who ever said chihuahua’s weren’t cuddly and sweet?

Benny always tunnels in next to me. To be fair, he might be part rat terrier.
