The good news

  • A former polaroid film factory in the Netherlands has been taken over by people who are aiming to re-start production of vintage polaroid film.  The Impossible Project.
  • I have been listening to Sam Amidon’s album All is Well quite a bit this week.  It came out in fall 07 on Bedroom Community, and you can get it off emusic or wherever else.  The album is great — basically Sam has carefully and with some very talented help, rearranged a lot of traditional American songs in very lovely and non-reductive ways.  Sam is kind of a old camp friend of mine.  So good for him!
  • It’s supposed to be in the 40s all week!
  • Dale found this awesome print at Recycle North — a lovely screenprint of the 1565 Mattioli drawing.  I guess dude was a very early botanist.
(this isn't the print we have, but it's very similar)

The bad news is that I am quitting coffee, at least for a month, and I HATE it.  This is day two, and I have a big headache.  But worse than that, I just want coffee.  Life just seems a lot less rich and less worth living without coffee EVERY DAY.

    I know it is supposed to be in the 40s and all, but there are better times of year to lay off the beans. It is hard enough to make it through VT in Feb as it is.
