Cameron Carpenter invites you to a concert
Last Saturday afternoon, November 21, 2009, was when it happened.
Too bad we weren't there, huh?
Here's the sort of thing
Crunchy Composition Notebook
Classic marble-ized cover replaced with a leafprint.

Fingerless Texting Gloves
Wrote Edward C. Baig in yesterday's USA Today:
New gloves from the start-up Freehands are designed to help you text, e-mail and play games in cold weather this winter without giving in to the elements.
The tips of your thumbs and index fingers are the only digits exposed when you flip off the caps of those glove fingers. The caps fold back and adhere to the rest of the glove via Velcro.
Designer Josh Rubin, also founder of art blog Cool Hunting, says the idea came to him in 2007 when he tried answering an iPhone with his nose rather than removing his gloves.

Handmade in The Netherlands from mahogany (above) or birch (below).
Seat wrapped in Kvadrad wool.
29"H x 106"W x 35.5"L.
There are 3 kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and 3G coverage maps
Long story short: Verizon says the map up top is the way it is and AT&T says you're lying, it's like this:
All I know is when I go into town my AT&T wireless phone calls always drop out in a dead zone at the intersection of Barracks Road and Georgetown Road — about a mile from an AT&T store.
What is it?
Answer here this time tomorrow.
