New Music Tuesday

The third and most anticipated album by COTVD is regrettably the worst. French mountain music is a bit overplayed and nothing surprises us with their latest effort. It’s time to hang up the hurdy gurdy.

Cammenga front man Pachento's mastery of the pan flute takes us worlds beyond Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca to places only seen by ancient Incan astronauts. Put your space suits on and enjoy the ride.

Perhaps the most critically acclaimed album since Our Lady of Egypt Church's sophomore album “I Know I'm Close to Success”; List of Holocausts Survivors' "Encircled by the City of the Living" submerges you directly into the death camps of Nazi Germany and leaves you frail and thin with pleasure.

Nom Nom Nom

Wednesday was very stressful for Tricksy and she finally succumbed to her cravings and participated in "Birthday Wednesday". You see, Tricksy's office celebrates birthdays once a month with a lovely display of cakes and other confections. Normally, Tricksy scoffs at this ritual and makes rude oinking noises at those who partake, but this Wednesday Tricksy needed a sugar coma. At precisely 10:30, the email arrived that cakes were in the pantry and Tricksy jumped from her desk and raced to the pantry. She surveyed her choices and decided on a lovely slice of chocolate cake with vanilla icing. Tricksy scurried back to her desk and placed her refined sugar treat to the side and resumed her work. Unfortunately, Tricksye was so busy she did not get a break until 2. Well guess what??? When cake sits on a desk for 4 hours it becomes dried out and nasty. Boo, no cake for Tricksy.

2 bananas, 1 peel

I know you can get twins in eggs (double yolks), but has anyone else seen a twin banana??? We picked up a bunch of bananas the other night at Costco. The bunch was in a bag, so I could not thoroughly exam them for bruises, but the price was right, so I took a chance and bought a bunch. When I got home I was super excited to find that the bunch was in good condition and just needed to ripen. I went to hang the bunch on the banana hanger thingy and that’s when I noticed the twin. Very strange, but it was darn tasty in my oatmeal.
