Horny Face Care

With all of the recent news about volcanoes, I have learned that volcanic ash can be useful! On your face! Apparently the ash contains essential vitamins and minerals... and stays crunchy in milk! Okay, I added that last part, but apparently volcanic ash contains vitamins and minerals that will make your face clearer and look younger.

Maybe only in Japan though. This volcanic goo is only available in Japan. And when you visit the website (notice the new AP style has changed "Web site" to "website" so I'm going with it) it's all in Japanese. Thank goodness for Google translation! At first I thought something was lost in translation, but I guess that shooting this "creamy lather" on your face will make you clearer, younger...

...and horny!!

Salsa Brava Live at the Zephyr, November 1993

I hit the mother lode of nostalgia boxes today after I had lunch with my mom. Twenty years of my dad's music on cassette tape; latin, jazz, fusion, experimental stuff. Today I found hundreds of cassettes, and all of the recordings contain my dad's saxophone playing in various bands from 1980 to 2001.

My plan is to digitize all of them so they will never fade away. Tonight I started with a recording of Salsa Brava taken live at the Zephyr Club in Salt Lake City in November of 1993. I always said it's hard to be sad when you're listening to great Latin music, that is, unless you're feeling extremely nostalgic.
