Another quick one today… this intro is probably a bit hackneyed at this point.
- The first song of the day is some good old easy listening: it’s Classical Gas by Mason Williams. Fun little ditty!
- The next song takes a bit of a turn but I absolutely love it: it’s Super Freaky Girl by Nicki Minaj. I know, I know. It’s very popular and current – particularly for this blog – but it’s too good.
- The next is Shadows Of The Night by Pat Benatar. She’s amazing.
- Finally, a feel-good song to which I’ve been jamming of late: it’s City of Angels by The Head and the Heart.
I know many of you have seen this in the news but if you’ve missed it, Donny T released his collection of NFT trading cards on www.collecttrumpcards.com. Watch the 2 minute video – just terrific, really really good.
Finally, have you heard of a diving bell spider? Per Wikipedia and Britannica, the diving bell spider or water spider is the only species of spider known to live almost entirely under water. It only briefly surfaces to replenish its oxygen supply and occasionally will bring prey to the surface. It’s known for its underwater silk web, which resembles a flexible diving bell. Once a water spider has captured tiny bubbles of air in the hairs on its body at the water’s surface, it transports them to its silk web, which is anchored to underwater plants or other objects, and ejects them into the interior, thereby inflating the underwater house with air. Research has shown that the inflated web serves as a sort of gill, extracting dissolved oxygen from the water when oxygen concentrations inside the web become sufficiently low to draw oxygen in from the water. Slowly, however, the inflated web collapses, and the spider must travel to the water’s surface for bubble renewal, which it does about once each day.
I hate it.
