This video of Wonjun Park contemplating death is simply marvelous. The production is perfect.

Here is title to search out...

Nostalgia aside, I can imagine this would be a great gift for any young man heading off into the world.

I really like how this is put together. I am sure tat it would be better if I knew more that 50% of the words, but just the visual and compositional choices are interesting. I kept noting how the producer would fall into a specific style of lettering then bang a subtle shift. Of course, the timing is derived from the music, but there is a subtle push and pull.

I think one of my favorite features of our new apartment is that you can hear squirrels run across the roof. It is flat and apparently rather thin so as they run it sounds like, well.... a small furry animal.

I found an article on how to arpeggiate on a piano on the There s something interesting about this notion of a wiki on how to do things things that are generally taught or learned through trial and error.

How to Arpeggiate on Piano

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

An arpeggio is a series of notes played in quick sequence, compared to a block or one-by-one. It adds a quick, fresh feel to any song and is much easier than most people think it out to be. This will show you how to perform an arpeggio on the piano using the notes C,E,G, Which is a C Major chord.


  1. Place your hands on low and middle C.
  2. Play C,E,G in your right hand as a block chord (C Major). Now, instead of playing them in one block, play them .successively and quickly to make a sort of harp sound.
  3. Keep repeating until you are able to play it quickly, evenly, smoothly, and [insert adverb of your choice].
  4. Change notes to something different, such as E,G,B (E Minor); A,C,E (A Minor); G,B,D (G Major). To add notes to it and make it longer, use your other hand and arpeggiate with them both. Make sure to keep them together, as to make one, long harp sound.
  5. Practice to learn it .


  • Be as fluent as possible.
  • Keep your fingers light and loose on the keys.
  • It should sound like a "brrring"
  • Learning new chords and progressions can also liven up your music.


  • Keep it stringed together and smooth.
