Proverbial experiments

'Learn to handle a writing-brush and you’ll never handle a begging-bowl.'

This is a Chinese proverb that makes me concerned that, in this age of the computer keyboard, I have no familiarity with the Chinese writing brush and am destined for a future of penury and woe. 

However, some time ago it struck me that, while such sayings seem sage, no-one has actually gone out and rigorously tested them.

So I have dedicated myself to that end.

You can read my conclusions at my proverb testing blog, proverbial experiments:

In My Mind

In my mind from Michael Fredman on Myspace.

This is a song I wrote a while ago but have only just got around to recording - I played this song live and people seemed to like it, so I paid it some attention. - wish I had access to some real drums, but the drum machine will have to do for now.

Note to shelf...

red star

Where to put those books that haven't been 'lent' to friends, or carried into the sea by a sausage dog (sorry Gore Vidal, your 'Creation' was subject to this) or destroyed in a fit of pique (the bloody Celestine Prophecies, what a load of bunk)...

The Dedalo bookcase by Porada is one of the best designed I have seen, but price info is suspiciously elusive, meaning it must cost a shocking amount of money.

This is a good round up of 30 creative bookshelf designs
