The Wonders Of Bathroom Lighting

Woke up this morning, walked into the bathroom, and the light was shining! What a feeling...

The fluorescent light above the mirror broke earlier this week. I started biting down on a flashlight each time I went, and assumed it'd be just a short-term thing. We had a spare tube in storage. I worked home for the first day, flashlight nearby, and we brought in the spare later on... it didn't work. Turns out it wasn't a spare after all. It was an old one.

So another day went by. We dug up a headlamp. I placed it strategically above the mirror as to light up as much of the ceiling as possible during my cold morning shower, and kept it in the hallway for the rest of the day. After work I took a ride to the local store to buy a new tube... they were out. Tried another place. No luck there either. Too late to embark anywhere further away.

And so one more night went by! I brought in a color-shifting LED apple for the morning shower the next day, night came again and finally: we got that replacement.

I'd grown accustomed to walking into the bathroom and flicking the light switch by habit, only to remember some fraction of a second later that it didn't work, then go grab that headgear instead.

Walking in now it's suddenly surprising to see the light evenly whiting the walls. Like magic illuminating the entire room. You don't realize how special it really is, in a room without windows, to totally eradicate the darkness with widespread electrical bearing, as we do each day.

The wonder of bathroom lighting... I'll never take it for granted again.

At least maybe not for a few more mornings.

Corona Bones (1:31)


Corona Bones

Corona, you got me sitting here like a loner,
Wonderin' if I can sleep with a bone a -
Bone to pick with all you stoners!
Who smoke weed so easily,
Wouldn't you have the decency,
To leave some weed for me,
You know in Sweden we,
Don't get weed so easily,
But I feel like if I get some,
Some relief I'd feel...

When will this be over?
You know I'm... all about closure.
I'll be on NG
Till I'm top reviewer and poster!
I don't LIKE not knowing things,
Like when we gon' fall,
All we can do is be strong y'all,
Be in it for the long haul.

I'm still not certain if this is doom or woo.
If it'll kill more peeps than the usual flu.
They call this... UwU flu, the new the new,
We're coming close... to the usual Fools.
But... things feel different. I feel I'm missing some...
kind of religion. Don't we go on living?
Don't we be strong? Since when were we people pawns?
Who calculated. Money amalgamated our souls...

This is a journey for a broken home.
You know. Gather together. Let all those emotions go.
Weather the weather and whatever the storm
We can believe in ourselves, weather tethered or worn.

Whatever comes. Draw that air in your lungs.
Look to the stars. Whenever fearing or numb.
Despair is enemy number #1! Go out with a RA
The sun, the sun, the awe, the awe!

We forget... how amazing we are.
People on a planet facing a star.
Rolling around with a greatness in arms, fucking it up,
Maybe it's time we face the alarm. It may get tough but...

Maybe this is where we really care and give much love.
Get in touch buds. Get grounded. HOPE for the future. We found it.

Only The Dead...

Only the dead have seen the end of war.

At One Day's End

Was planning to write, record and review a bunch of stuff tonight, but I'm just too tired to collect my thoughts properly. Instead I write this, and if that's no paradox then what? How can I formulate a blog tolerably yet not take care of anything more worthwhile?

It's been a good day though. I took a walk with a buddy for the first time in a month or so - first person outside of the family in a month or so too. First person that I know, that I've interacted with during this lengthening self-isolation phase for real. Usually it's just cashiers and strangers.

The sun shone, the water glistened in a cold tone, the freshwater beach lay barren and inviting... but we weren't there for that. Just a quick mutual stroll in airy isolation, before the traditional Tuesday shopping round with a 5% pensioner rebate a the family. They installed the new washing machine this morning too. All is good.

It's fun to drive. I've started wondering how much of a risk of getting pulled over it'd be if you happen to drive twice the speed limit for just a while on the freeway between shop and home... just wondering.

I'm reminded of another buddy that's still home with corona; a cough and a tiredness that doesn't seem to seize. After three weeks. Jeez.

But that's all. This Corona thing... sometimes doesn't feel like a thing after all.

Tip Jar (2016)

Black and white silent film really is an artform! Making it as right and watchable as this, in this day and age, when we have such a sped up sense of time and dues... nothing short of impressive. Great watch.
