This is about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. The concept is that it amplifies and projects the little birdie sounds from inside the house. Sinister, yes, but SO CUTE! The company that made them doesn’t seem to be making them anymore. Perhaps I’ll have to craft me up one.

Summertime Ant-proofing



sugar bowl w/ moat, originally uploaded by lasuprema.

It has been so dry here in Texas this summer, that we’ve had a minor tiny-black-ant invasion. Little dudes are so thirsty! I’m happy to provide a little sip for them, but once they start fucking with my food, the deal is off. In order to save some little ant lives from my horrible vengeance, I do like my mamma (and her mamma, etc) does. I put a moat around the sugar. Works great if you leave out food for your pets, too. You’re welcome…

The Museum of Natural and Artificial Ephemerata
The Museum of Natural and Artificial Ephemerata

Last weekend, I checked out the latest show over at the Museum of Natural and Artificial Ephemerata. I love people who choose see the magic in the way the world works. People who look a little longer, and who consider alternative explanations. And I also love poeple who cram their converted garages with a bunch of weird crap, then invite the general public to come have a look! If you’re in Austin this weekend or next, you should really stop in (they’re open on Saturday afternoons). But don’t worry if you miss the current exhibit because, as their bumper stickers say: “We are living in the Museum of Ephemerata.” Indeed we are.
