I’ve developed a fascination with polar bears lately.. They’re so majestic / tragic. Ursus Maritimus, yo! 
Bjork, of course, was there before me.
"Bjork imagined she was a polar bear with an "army" of 500 ursine comrades destroying a town. "I identify with polar bears," Bjork said. "They’re very cuddly and cute and quite calm, but if they meet you they can be very strong." - via Rolling Stone

Turns out this is the most popularly viewed photo I’ve uploaded to Flickr. Stinky Squid Boy - as a little stinky squid girl…. bluescreening for an MC battle videoclip in Brisbane. And it’s got fans: 
"Hi, I’m an admin for a group called octopus on yo head, and we’d love to have this added to the group!”

Arriving at the temple of Boinga Bob - it’s Scattermish, still fresh after breezing through the Lilydale to Warburton rail trail.
More temple photos. 
(There’s also a campaign and Facebook group to save Boinga Bob’s temple from being destroyed by the Council.)

One thing that I am beginning to focus on more and more is creating new options, new fantasies. We are in an odd situation where music classified as experimental has a larger platform than I have ever seen, and yet music itself seems to be as politically and culturally inconsequential as I have ever known it to be. There are many reasons for this, however I think one major culprit is that our current modes of expressing emotion, eroticism, intelligence, contemplation, etc. are so quantified and stale—we seem to be happy to find new and shiny ways to communicate the same things. I’m interested in creating new options, and new fantasies, for music—which again speaks to an awareness of the “here and now.” What roles can music now play that we could not have previously imagined? This discussion appears to be more advanced in visual arts, computer science, and design, and I feel like music is long overdue a reevaluation in that respect.

More musically and visually beguiling that you would believe from that still frame; in fact, amazing.

Nice video - and from the next tab along, an interesting accompaniment: imagining geology on alien planets.

Sky burial…

.. is a ritual that has great religious meaning. Tibetans are encouraged to witness this ritual, to confront death openly and to feel the impermanence of life. They believe that the corpse is nothing more than an empty vessel. The spirit, or the soul, of the deceased has exited the body to be reincarnated into another circle of life. The corpse is offered to the vultures.

It is believed that the vultures are Dakinis. Dakinis are the Tibetan equivalent of angels. In Tibetan, Dakini means “sky dancer”. Dakinis will take the soul into the heavens, which is understood to be a windy place where souls await reincarnation into their next lives.
