Here's the twisted-bore 1.8 that just came off the printer this morning. (Ergnomics are not yet great, but still better than previous folded-bore versions.)

Folded bore shakuhachi detritus: this is *fewer* versions than it took for me to get to the point where I have one that I'm actually pretty pleased with. (That's the one in my pocket.)

After some more programming and debugging and printing, I now have version 2 of the folded-bore shakuhachi. To my surprise, this one is already a useful musical instrument with a clear, easy tone. It's a strong indication that this is a useful path and I'm so happy about it! Guitar pick for scale... this is small.

I present to you the world's first folded bore shakuhachi.

Sourdough crepe, made with cheese and curry in the batter, served with apricot jam.

Just innocently watching Matthew Berry's show Toast of London from 2012, and it's a surprise joke about Boris Johnson:

As a lifelong meditator, which practice I recommend to pretty much everybody, I was really pleased to see Rashida Jones and Nick Offerman do this bit.

I'm still sad that nobody has ever noticed the ringer on this shelf.

Procedurally-modeled 1.3 shakuhachi. Critical measurements thanks to David Brown.

Sourdough crêpe with saucisson, sour cream, and homemade habanero kimchi and sriracha.

Pig in blanket made with crêpe from sourdough starter castoff. Mustard, sauteed onions, hot sauce on the inside. Playing with this stuff is more fun than having the daily fresh sourdough (which, don't get me wrong, is also great).

A cover of an unjustly lesser-known song from one of my favorite 80s bands.

"Chinatown" by Romeo Void

Please enjoy the new song "Mon bum a besoin de danser" ("my (butt) needs to dance") titled and inspired by a certain young gentleman saying those words when asked to take it easy at some point. in the spirit of the original franglais sentence, lyrics are in french and english (and a little spanish).

I am very proud of Burn the Earth’s second album “Resurrection,” which we've just finished. In a few weeks it will be on whatever streaming/download service you use, but you can have it now (and then) for free by downloading it from jeremy.org/music/2019/Resurrec

The mastermind behind this band (including especially all the non-bass guitars) is the inestimable Paul Boutin. Vocals (and album art) by yours truly.

I hope you like it.
