wire and dance

We gave my dad a light fixture in the shape of an airplane for his birthday. I installed it in the bathroom ceiling downstairs. its cute, and goes with the d├ęcor on that floor. (if you look around the room you'll see airplanes, cars, airplanes, airships, airplanes, spaceships, airplanes, and a desk) Photo will follow if i remember.

The song "Nice Weather for Ducks" by Lemon Jelly makes me happy. its just the sound. i don't know if this version is a series of samples of other pieces, as the vocal refrain obviously is, but the whole composition makes me dance around and smile in a vague, stupid way until an outside force reminds me not to. You can listen to it Here, though the trippy flash animation that goes along with it tends to distract me from the piece itself. For some reason "Sticks and Stones" by The Divine Comedy has a similar effect on me. maybe its the key signature.

pretty much the whole of Lemon Jelly's 'Lost Horizons' album is like that. The divine comedy one is a little odd though, I've never really thought of them as dancing around music, awesome, but not hugely dancy - except this perhaps

not dance, really, just kinda bounce around with a big linear grin on my face, not unlike a Peanuts character. may have to invest in some lost horizons.
