Hiding from the intruder and the camera.
The above is our sweet Sasha Cat resting among a collection of stuff toys. We call her “Sash-ET,” as sometimes we wander right by her and don’t even notice she has buried herself by the animals.
This is our new neighbor cat. When Neighbor Kitty comes by, sweet Sasha turns into a howling beast, emitting a noise so chilling that it brings Ozzy Cat running to see what is wrong with his sister. In fact, the noise has the same effect on us.
So angered by the visitor, Sasha patrols the window to ensure she doesn’t return. The above picture was taken two hours after the visit; it took another 30 minute or so before Sasha gave up the vigil.
Talking Heads – Life During Wartime: Talking Heads appear on the Random Eight at a much ratio than they are represented on the iPod, but the songs always make me happy of their success on the Thursday playback.
Marillion – Forgotten Sons: Proggy anti-war ranting.
Afghan Whigs – Superstition / Going to Town: Fun live track from one of the band’s early EPs.
Merzbow – Variation For P.D. 1 (1995): Noisy noisy.
Tom Waits – The Return of Jacking and Judy: A blues-rooted tune from Orphans.
R.E.M. – Laughing: Very early, friendly track that would lead to so much for the band.
Robyn Hitchcock – Lady Waters & The Hooded One: With a few exceptions, this has been a very “indie-rock” focused Random Eight.
Afghan Whigs – When We Two Parted: A great song that was stunning live on their tour late last year.
The first shot captured after the initial collection posted here. Perhaps its former owner read the book and realized Tinker Bell was really a nasty character.
Made by me (so far, no fatalities reported in the house).
I sat for a short break and saw this little guy staring up at me.
To put it in perspective, here it is cowering by a golf ball I found on the trail.
As I walked through the zoo in the early morning, the sound of something howling loudly was echoing across the grounds. It sounded very cat-like, but it was coming from the full opposite side of the zoo from the lions and tigers. The only possible explanation was it being the sound of a cheetah, although I can’t say I ever heard the cheetahs make such a noise before.
Upon approaching the cheetah habitat, I saw this one stretching from its den, investigating the source of the sound as I was.
Afterwards, it looked quite annoyed at being woken so early.
