Random notes

I have discovered my cats' top-secret, feline-eyes-only memorandum detailing their plans for the day:

"1. Hang around kitchen asking for food.
2. Sleep.
3. Hang around kitchen asking for food.
4. Sleep."

No big surprises here, I must admit.

On a wholly different note, lately I've been listening to a self-compiled (via iTunes) album consisting of 18 selections from XTC's Andy Partridge, Fuzzy Warbles volumes 1-6. These records are a weirdly self-indulgent project of Partridge's, involving the release of all sorts of demos and outtakes that XTC or he compiled over the years. Mostly filler or out-takes of released songs, but each of the six volumes has 3 or 4 gems, which you can find through a combination of reading customer reviews on Amazon and playing 30-second song samples on iTunes. So selected, the song quality is if anything higher than on an average XTC album, although the production values are lower. It sounds like it comes from some strange alternative universe in which Paul McCartney had retained all of his talent and taste after leaving the Beatles.

I wonder if you are aware of the comedian Robert Klein's routine on the cat planning its day ("roll over, chase a mouse, that should carry me right through to lunch.") The problem, he suggested, was that this analysis ignored a basic fact: a cat has a brain the size of a marble. To which one could riposte the scarecrow's comment from The Wizard of Oz: a lot of people with no brains do an awful lot of talking, don't they? Why not cats?
