Demos: Edison’s Memos

Robert Pollard's LP of demos for the Guided By Voices "Earthquake Glue" record. Limited to 1000 copies on vinyl only. 

❝Recorded in one day (actually in a matter of 5 hours, start to finish) on October 13, 2002 at the Warfleigh Labs. These are the original demos for the songs that became 'Earthquake Glue'. Robert Pollard plays all instruments (even a homemade E string click track) and does all of the vocals. 'Earthquake Glue', at one time, was going to be called 'Edison's Memos', hence the title - 'Edison's Demos'.❞ -- @chasinghighways

Holy Week: Easter Sunday - Cascarones (*)

Carefully crack a dozen or more eggs, preserving at least 3/4s of each shell. Good time to make some omelettes & pancakes. Note: keep egg-carton for saved shell storage.

Wash/clean interior of eggshells. Let dry.. 

Dye empty eggshells, let dry again. Fill shells with confetti and glue/top eggshell opening with colored tissue, sorta forming "cone-head shape". 

Again, use egg-carton for shell storage until scattering/hiding the celebratory cascarones in yard for the kiddies/youngsters’ Easter Sunday egghunt.


Finally, Let the kids enjoy breaking & smashing their Easter basket collection of celebratory confetti cascaron eggs on each other's heads!! Where?? Outdoors, not inside a residence. 

Fun stuff. Messy stuff.

(*) Cascaron

\Cas`ca*ron"\, n. [Sp. cascar['o]n.] Lit., an eggshell; hence, an eggshell filled with confetti to be thrown during balls, carnivals, etc. [Western U. S.]

Holy Week: Silent Saturday

“Now pay attention to this. G*d is nameless for no one can either speak of him or know him. Therefore a master says that what we can know or say of the First Cause reflects ourselves more than it does the First Cause, for this transcends all speech and all understanding . . . He is being beyond being: he is a nothingness beyond being. Therefore St. Augustine says: ‘The finest thing that we can say of G*d is to be silent concerning him from the wisdom of inner riches.’ Be silent therefore, and do not chatter about G*d, for by chattering about him, you tell lies and commit a sin. If you wish to be perfect and without sin, then do not prattle about G*d.”  

― Meister Eckhart,  Selected Writings
