The Science Of Symphonies

Please remember that, while music is a form of art, one must engineer a symphony in order to get it right. 😆

Keeping Them Poor And Doesn’t Require Theft

Ah, the timeless wisdom of the Orient. True then and true today. 😆 And yeah, some of us know this truth, don’t we, Tyler?

Not sure how many will get this bit of horrific humor but, to those few who do, you’re welcome. 🎶 🧟 😀

Purradice City

Take Me Down To The Purradice City

Take me down to the purradice city
Where the catnip’s green and the girls are kitties
Take me home
(oh, won’t you please take me home)

Yes, Please! While I’m not that inspired by catnip – though I do grow it in my front garden to attract the neighborhood kitties – I’d love it if somehow I could be taken to where the girls are kitties. 😉

Nekomusume are Nekogami

PRO TIP: Don’t be that Weeb! Or, if you prefer, don’t be a Baka Minikui Gaijin! Treat those Cat Daughters (Nekomusume) like the Cat Goddesses (Nekogami) that they are. You’ll go farther that way and won’t be quite so much of a painful-to-witness embarrassment.

NOTE: The much more common term would be simply Baka Gaijin (Stupid/foolish [non-Asian] Foreigner). I chose to make the point stronger by adding Minikui (ugly in the sense of being painful to see). It also is a riff on the longstanding “Ugly American” stereotype.

Also, just as a personal note on language, idiom, and the subtle shadings of meaning and expectation, I prefer Nekomusume (Cat Daughters) over the equally or more common term, Nekomimi (Cat Ears). Both, however, are in very common use when describing Cat Girls.

For The Longest Time

We’ve Been Hear In Lock-Down For The Longest Time

Honestly, it’s good and heartening to see that some people are showing and sharing a certain level of resilience to the pestilence that is the enforced quarantine and shut-down of society in the wake of COVID-19.

But hey! They’re Canadians and Canadians seems to be possessed of a certain aplomb and fortitude in the face of this sort of adversity.
