    Damn.


    Before relating a recent story time interchange I need to make sure everyone knows that while I like kids, I like them like dogs...as long as they are someone else's and they go away after a short time. That said, I had one of the cutest experiences with a two year old girl. It was her first ever story time and she came with grandma, not as shy as most little ones and willing to sit on her own and participate in the stories and songs. After the story time we do crafts, today was making rain sticks - paper towel tubes the kids decorate with markers and then we seal an end, scoop in some dried beans, rice, and pasta, and then seal up. Shaken gently it sounds sort of like rain on a roof, shaken vigorously, like a storm. The little girl was being resistant to adding the beans et al and grandma said she liked to do things herself. I sat on the floor next to her with a bowl of beans and pasta and held one up to her and motioned dropping it in to the tube, she very carefully picked the bean out of my fingers and dropped it in; when we got to the fourth bean she looked at me and said "four", I agreed and in it went, we then counted for a while until she said "all" so all went in at once and we sealed the tube. She then went around to everyone in the building, showing them her stick. At the end of the program she came up to me unprompted and said "thank you". What a cool little girl (normally I make connections with little boys but this little one was fun).
    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.

    So I have very specific and boring opinions about Hans Zimmer (movie composer), but I watched Inception again recently, and it may be noticeable in my latest effort, Logic-Pro's Space Designer Reverb is lot's of fun - https://soundcloud.com/joeclark168/sort-of-epic

    That's what it's like having your own kids. Adorable moments like that every fucking day. Mixed with wild stuff them in the oven moments.

    My youngest niece was 3 and a bit months over Xmas, I found myself asking - "Let's have a go on her" like holding a baby for a few minutes to a toke off a spliff or something.

    Exactly. I wish the issue after that had started with, "Now, where were we before we were so rudely interrupted?"

    I am digging a lot of Marvel's comics lately, but the constant interruption from the Big Events gets really tiresome. Marvel Now is just getting into full swing, and now that's gonna be interrupted by Age Of Ultron, something that was written and drawn two years ago, and which they're going to try and shoehorn into current continuity however they can.

    Has anyone seen Moonrise Kingdom?

    Wes Anderson is really starting to put himself in rare company with his work.

    Now that, I can relate to.

    I don't know where I would rank it in Anderson's filmography, but I liked it a good bit. My wife enjoyed it, too. Just as a side note, I can't stand Edward Norton, but I thought he was very good in this movie.
