New Avatar

Posted in Bizarre, Blogging, Cats by Curtis on 3/22/07

The more bored or more observant might have noticed my old avatar image. It was a Soviet-looking, sepia-toned letter B. A friend left the photo on my computer, and I learned only yesterday that it was actually a digitally modified photograph of a magazine ad for a mastering studio in North Carolina.

To avoid any trademark or copyright issues—and, hey, just because it’s springtime—we’re going to say goodbye to the Soviet B and move along to a brand new avatar image. It features the Nagasaki mushroom cloud and my friend’s Devon Rex, Lejoon, in such a way as to suggest the cat’s darkly ponderous persona (with which my own frequently coincides):

From Denisemc on Youtube, check out this awesome video interpretation of that indefatigable Lee Hazelwood / Nancy Sinatra psych-pop classic Some Velvet Morning. Sure, it’s been covered by Lydia Lunch. Most certainly it has been explored by Primal Scream with help from Kate Moss. But methinks no-one has James the Cat’s intrinsic grasp of the wistful, demonic ennui of Phaedra. Dragonflies and daffodils

Just for good measure, here’s a link to the original.

While we’re waiting to see if the Senate can turn blue—for irreverence, strangeness, macabre cuteness, and outright harrow, it’s hard to beat this little (actually, surprisingly sizable) site:

Don’t tell them I sent you.

Even the Cat is for the ‘Crats

Cat for the ‘Crats

Even my sister’s cat Louise is hanging in there this evening, raising a paw in hope (or frustration? or both?) as she tracks the progress of Democrats in the 2006 mid-term elections.

I will bring you my own blasphemous and grossly misinformed analysis as events unfold.
