I'm putting the finishing touches on my bathroom this weekend, including wiring in two new light fixtures (scary!). Speaking of electricity, I stumbled upon this fantastic video of "If You're a Viper", Bob Howard's 1937 cover of the ode to Wacky Tobacky, ingeniously paired with scenes from El hotel eléctrico.
On an unrelated note, I want to thank each and every one of my faithful readers for sticking with me through all my blogging starts and stops, and for leaving your thoughtful comments. I truly appreciate each one of you, and I apologize for sometimes failing to respond. This is something that I intend to work on, so let me ask you, how do you respond to comments left for you on your own blog? Comment leavers, how do you prefer to receive responses to comments you have made? In the comment section itself? On one of your own blog posts? By email? It seems that there's not a one-size-fits-all solution. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
