They're off to Norway. I was showing a student the one w/the skull, and saying that I sold it. When he saw the price, he just about fell out of his shoes. I was laughing and going "I know, I know, it's crazy," all embarrassed. Saying I'd never buy a necklace over 14 bucks, myself. Oh, it was ridiculous. The juxtaposition of the economic level of an illegal immigrant with that of the world of white folks...
I have all kinds of deep thoughts. They never feel a need to be expressed in these posts, it seems. I'm very secular and atheistic day to day, but then in my making, I tap right back into my wacky buddhist on acid college days for the ... aesthetic aura, I think is the term I might be looking for. Weird. Also weird, I've been spelling weird wrong all my life. I before E and all...
Yeah, i only heard of them cuz of the palm pixi commercial. Still don't know what a palm pixi is, I mean other than another kind of one of those things that hold no interest for me. But good for them for getting the bills paid. I wish I liked the other songs on their CD this much- the dolphin-voiced hindi singer, the voot-voot synth, the dude going several octaves higher than testeecules should allow, the magical lyrics. Makes me almost cry.
Too much new stuff... totally uninspired to come up w/cool posts. The last few were literally, like "I got this little house... put it on a chain..."

I've got a bunch more to post but ugh. I had the brilliant idea of getting this new translation of Rilke's Duino Elegies by Edward Snow- and yes, the translation is amazing, huge improvement on all previous attempts. However. Since it's not, ya know, on the internet ... I can't just cut and paste it into a post, but have to actually type it in. Wow that sounds lazy. But after a long day of taking pictures, and after a long menstrual week of dealing w/my OCD/autistic boss, I'm just burnt. None of the verses even make sense after a while. Or I just start to pair them w/jewelry pieces for no good reason and it thus becomes gibberish. Gibberish. I like that word.
