Jazz from Yazz
via yazz.posterous.com Alfred’s encyclopaedic knowledge of music just astounds me. He’s sent me videos and songs of artists that I would otherwise never have discovered, and Eric Dolphy is one of them. This is perfect music for a lazy weekend groove. Enjoy :)
One planet - harajukumatt on deviantART

I found this some time ago as a text file and knew I had to do something creative with it. I may be a geek, but I’m also a visual geek - so here it is - luminous rhyming poetic keyboard symbols. Who’da thunk it?
Burning questions about tumblr.
1. What’s with someone who follows you, and when you try to visit their blog you get the tumblr generated equivalent of a 404? Does that mean they’ve been banned? How do you get rid of them? 2. How often does the tumblr Crushes update? There are people on there I unfollowed quite a while ago, and some that I don’t even recall visiting. 3. Let’s say you follow someone...

Bewitching “Sexual Color” Photography

via 3quarksdaily.com In my country we call them chooks. ‘Chook’ can also be a term of endearment or a mild insult towards females, depending on how it’s used. I like chooks. They’re quite happy creatures and always pleased to see people. And they lay eggs for us. You gotta love chooks, especially the ones that can dance :)

I’m very fond of my new theme because it’s simple and elegant. I’ve been finding it hard to navigate some tumblr pages because of the number of comments beneath images which have been reblogged. It can get quite messy, and while I understand that some tumblrs communicate that way, I just get confused trying to follow who said what and in reply to whom. With this theme, the...
