Edinburgh, T-2 days

A) Pictures of this weekend in Edinburgh.

B) I think I am going unless the shit really hits the fan.
Jerusalem is not under fire at all,
but I will refrain from travel and limit usage of public transport.

Lots and lots of love,
yours truely

Magic Eight Ball

If you don't have access to the real thing ...

as you think, so shall you be

one who speaks their mind
is quickest to reach their element

Kick-ass corners

Not without tweaking,
but I've been looking for something that does this for ages!
(see my uni page for reference)

Extra income?

How to write a paper...

It has long been known... I didn't look up the original reference.
A definite trend is evident... These data are practically meaningless.
Of great theoretical and practical importance... Interesting to me.

Should I stay or should I go now?

An if I stay it will be double...

When you lead a horse to water and it refuses to drink, pet the thirsty horse compassionately while you enjoy the water yourself.

At the same time, notice that you too are standing beside a water source that you refuse to drink from, even as those around you cannot understand why you hesitate.

You’ll often find that once you begin to drink from your own neglected source, the horse you’ve been trying so desperately to help begins to drink as well.

Self-Actualization


"A musician must make music,
an artist must paint,
a poet must write,

if he is to be at peace with himself.
What a man can be, he must be.

This is the need we may call self-actualization ...
It refers to man's
desire for fulfillment,
namely to the tendency for him to become
actually in what he is potentially:
to become everything that one
is capable of becoming ..."
~ Dr. Abraham Maslow

I was reading about that is morning in the LA Times while I was eating breakfast. Got about a paragraph in before I got too emotional to finish. I really hate war. Really do.

Hate has never been av very constructing emotion, still these men (and occassionally women) choose to breed exactly that feeling. And p(l)ay with human lives. Isn't this the "civilized world"?

push-pull

“Our frustration is greater when we have much and want more
than when we have nothing and want some.
We are less dissatisfied when we lack many things
than when we seem to lack but one thing.”

Geeks only zone

I found a (yes, yet another) really cool new music recommender.
The set up requires registering for the demo and takes a while, but seems to be well worth the effort.

At 11.7.06, Blogger Foafing your music said...

Yet another music recommender, named Foafing the Music.

And you can create an account only by "importing" the data from your Blogger profile (e.g: http://www.blogger.com/profile/3483988).

Enjoy!

You know you are a grown up when...

(...or for those of us who never grow up,
the title should be rephrased as: warning flags for being an adult when...)

  1. you keep forgetting how old you are.
  2. you haven't planned to celebrate your birthday for the last couple of years.
  3. you plan to be working and/or being abroad on your birthday.

bi-instrumental?

maybe learning your second instrument is a little like learning your second language?
in becoming 'bi-lingual' you are able not only to generalize - to see commonalities as well as differences - but as a consequence also to understand a form of communication that transcends each individual vehicle of communication...
