And here we have scientific proof that lolcats‘ depiction of cats who plot and manipulate is indeed true, not some figment of the human imagination! Ah, Pepo, you devil you. As I was once told by ruby2shoes (and as the intertubes says so too, it must be true), “dogs have owners, cats have staff”.

In other news, we also have scientific proof that “cats know more about fluid mechanics than dogs“!

Wonder what we’ll find out next… stay tuned for the rise of the lolcats.

“New Butterfly”, by Ade ISHS

New Butterfly” is Ade’s second album. You can find my review of his first album, “Visions“, here. The same disclaimer in that post applies to this review.

As before, the album is contemporary instrumental piano. The music is simply beautiful. Both relaxing and deeply contemplative. Ade’s in no rush to finish a song, the timing is just right. The notes feel a lot more harmonious, diverse, confident. My favourites include “Jakarta at Night 3“, “Go on 2“, “I Saw Happiness“, and “Moving Ashburton“. “Jakarta at Night 3” – well if you have spent a night in Jakarta – the faintly cool night breeze in a city named after a prince, you’ll get the connection. Tracks average 6-8 minutes in length. One contrast (in both feel, and length) is “Unity in Diversity“, a short (1:35!), light piece.

Highly recommended, awe-some. 10/10 stars. Still DRM-free (yay!).
