i spent christmas eve alone this year and watched 'once'. although i wasn't a big fan of the frames, i fell completely in love with the movie and immediately had to download all the music. normally i'm not such a sucker for indie crap... maybe it was the holidays, maybe it was the stress that had been piling up. who knows? the music i tend to listen to isn't as folky, melodic, or down-tempo as the songs i enjoyed the most, and i fell into a bit of a quieter phase for a few days. i made this to accompany two of the songs i liked the most...

The Halloween 2007 Badge
Happy Halloween 2007! In celebration of this event, here is a recipe to make your very own candy corn:

Combine 1 cup of razor blades, 2 cups of clown tears and 3/4 tablespoon spider eggs in a pan and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and add 2 cups hemlock and 3 ounces of fish oil. Stir until cool enough to handle. Shape and distribute.

Trick or treat!
