Juggling rings


I still have to practice a lot, but it is a start. I bought them yesterday, shortly before we stumbled upon the International Beatboxing Convention. Find a video and pictures on my flickr account.

Stables Market after fire

I picked up the rings, you can see in the video above, from Camden Lock Market and I was quite struck by the sight of Stables Market, especially the part pictured above. We've been there with D. and S. in late December, shopping for clothes. Now I think of all the people who suddenly lost their jobs and shops and else ... The mind is a strange thing, which is filled by the media unless you go there yourself and see with your own eyes what changed.

The Atlantic was born today and I’ll tell you how...
The clouds above opened up and let it out.

I was standing on the surface of a perforated sphere
When the water filled every hole
And thousands upon thousands made an ocean
Making islands where no island should go
Oh no

Those people were overjoyed; they took to their boats
I thought it less like a lake and more like a moat
The rhythm of my footsteps crossing flatlands to your door have been silenced forever more
The distance is quite simply much too far for me to row
It seems farther than ever before
Oh no

I need you so much closer

I need you so much closer
So come on, come on

Reggie Watts

I tell you guys, watch the videos on his page! Unbelievably awesome! : ) Bauchklang and so much more in one guy! “He is the only American possessing full vocal range (ten octaves of tone plus 300 distinct vocal styles).” I REALLY would like to see him live, but I guess that ain’t gonna happen ...

Joy Denalane - New

I do not know yet if I like that. I liked her first and the live album too. But that ... hmmmm.
