With roasted eggplant, portobello mushrooms, and garlic.
Lately, our Sasha Cat has been very clingy with me.
In this shot, she is on the desk chair, daring me to try and move her. This is one of many encounters I have with the fuzzy girl, although most of them are very pleasant resulting in me having a sweet, purring critter on my lap.
At one point the other day, I was working at the desk and dropped a pen cap. I wheeled the chair backwards to pick up the lid. From the corner of my eye, I saw Sasha tearing across the room. It was only when she was very far away that she let out a typical, angry Sasha-sass.
In itself, this observation was not uncommon. Even over eleven years old, Sasha runs everywhere; it is rare to ever see her walk at a slow pace. And, Sasha likes to sass me, most of the time for no apparent reason.
Then I looked down, and discovered she had a reason to make a mad meow this time.
Apparently a wheel from the chair caught her very fluffy tail. Although I didn’t see, feel, or hear the incident, the fur on the floor was evidence enough.
Our cats (like most, I suspect) are very melodramatic; if we accidentally catch them with even the toe of our foot, they squawk to the top of their lungs in distress. However, I typically know when we really hurt them (by accident, of course), because those times they don’t make a squeak. They just tear away and possibly give us an angry glare or yowl once they are out of harms way. Such was the action this time.
A Million Billion – Sandcastles: There are a lot of bands and music on the iPod, but this is one I have no memory of buying or uploading. I also do not know the songs at all. It is kinda quiet and a bit offbeat; perhaps worth exploring further.
The Everly Brothers – The Brand New Tennessee Waltz: Surprisingly, it is the new waltz where they scream death metal lyrics.
Alex Chilton – 20 Solar System: If I remember the story correctly, this is one of a couple dozen songs from an acoustic show played informally after a power outage at the club where Alex was to play. It is full of fun, if not silly, covers.
Boom Bip – The Move: Moving from the subtle and quiet to the bouncy.
IQ – Breathtaker: From bouncy to proggy.
The Residents – The Baby King Part 4: Spoken word story from The Residents’ tale of Elvis.
Philemon Arthur & The Dung – En Fortorkad Kaffebona: Making an unlikely Random Eight day where The Residents are not the strangest band in the playlist.
Bardo Pond – Cry Baby Cry: Somewhat psychedelic, somewhat noisy.
Not too happy at my arrival.
So petrified by me, it didn’t even seem to mind the ant walking on its head.
R.E.M. – Finest Worksong: iPod woke up old today.
David Byrne – The Red House: Fairly wacky tune from The Catherine Wheel score.
Sugar – Come Around: At one point, Beaster was just about my favorite album ever. I still like it, but it has been a while since I gave it a listen.
The Beatles – I Will: Nice, minimal song from the band I will likely forever never give a lot of listening time to.
Oneida – The Life You Preferred: Happily kicking and screaming into the 21st century, the iPod is.
Ministry – Thieves: One of my favorite loud, angry songs from the band.
The Boomtown Rats – Hurt Hurts: And then back to the early 80′s…funny retro mood today.
The Field – Mobilia: Fun bouncy, and somewhat modern, way to end the Random Eight.
