Cat Stevens
Wednesday. 4.3.13 3:07 am
I have been listening to Cat Stevens, again. By some kind of fluke, Amazon gave me the MP3s and I've been playing them while I get back into design. When I was in Elementary school, I used to listen to Cat Stevens all the time. I think I had half of his songs memorized. It's startling, because (and I know it sounds corny), but I really feel as though his music really shaped how I think. Anyway, some lyrics.

Moonshadow -

Yes, I'm being followed by a moonshadow
Moonshadow, moonshadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow
Moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands
Lose my plow, lose my land
Oh, if I ever lose my hands
Oh, if - I won't have to work no more

And if I ever lose my eyes
If my colors all run dry
Yes, if I ever lose my eyes
Oh, if - I won't have to cry no more

Yes, I'm being followed by a moonshadow
Moonshadow, moonshadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow
Moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my legs
I won't moan, and I won't beg
Oh, if I ever lose my legs
Oh, if - I won't have to walk no more

And if I ever lose my mouth
All my teeth, north and south
Yes, if I ever lose my mouth
Oh, if - I won't have to talk-

Did it take long to find me?
I ask the faithful light
Oh, did it take long to find me?
And, are you going to stay the night?

I'm being followed by a moonshadow
Moonshadow, moonshadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow
Moonshadow, moonshadow

Moonshadow, moonshadow
Moonshadow, moonshadow

Oh Very Young-

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time?
You're only dancing on this earth for a short while
And though your dreams may toss and turn you now
They will vanish away like your daddy's best jeans
Denim blue fading up to the sky

And though you want them to last forever
You know they never will
You know they never will
And the patches make the goodbye harder still

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time?
There'll never be a better chance to change your mind
And if you want this world to see a better day
Will you carry the words of love with you?
Will you ride the great white bird into heaven?

And though you want to last forever
You know you never will
You know you never will
And the goodbye makes the journey harder still

Will you carry the words of love with you?
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time?
You're only dancing on this earth for a short while
Oh very young
What will you leave us this time?

Best Dream EVER!
Saturday. 3.30.13 11:13 am
So, I had one of those dreams where I have all these pets and they keep multiplying on themselves and I don't know where they came from... but it was fun! I mean, really, really fun! We already had two mini Aussies, we spent the entire morning just running around, playing fetch, patting them on the heads, feeding them brushing them, and then there was a new one, a red dog, which threw me off a little, but I was so happy to have him, too. All the other dogs loved him and they were chasing each other all over the house. Now I'm exhausted... off to work.

A Walk not a Drag
Wednesday. 3.27.13 3:45 pm
I was dog-sitting this weekend and it has put me back in the mind of dogs and training. I remember, once while I was in Korea, I saw this lady on the street and she was being dragged mercilessly by her golden retriever. I stopped her and I said, "I hate to bother you, but would you like to learn how to teach your dog to stop dragging you" a wave of relief passed over her face, "YES PLEASE!" she said desperately. I took the leash and explained to her what I'm going to explain to you now.

There are many reasons why walks are fun for dogs, the most compelling of which is getting somewhere. Your dog is also motivated by interesting smells, fast moving objects and pulling, but what it boils down to is that if your dog is not moving, the walk is not a walk. Additionally, whatever you practice with your dog is what your dog will learn. So how does this apply to training your dog not to pull?

Well, what you do is you start off walking with your dog. If your dog gets ahead of you and especially when it starts pulling, turn around and go the opposite way. Your dog is flexible, they'll turn around with you get ahead of you and your job is to turn the other way. After about three or four (or forty) repetitions, you dog will start to get the picture: we go when the lady on the end of the leash is AHEAD of me, we stop when I'm ahead. They will start watching you, start watching your hips to see if your slowing down or speeding up and now, you've got a leash trained dog.

It's really that magical. You might look weird, but after all your neighbors realize what your doing, the whole block will be doing it. I spent five minutes with this stranger's golden retriever and the dog was walking like the most patient animal you have ever seen in your life. I did the same thing with a 130lb Saint Bernard at a shelter, once. No one wanted to walk him because he habitually dislocated your shoulder. After a half an hour of walking like a moron, he was patiently following me around the shelter. I have walked pit mixes, Rottweilers, miniature dachshunds, schnauzers, poodles, corgi mixes all with exactly the same results. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

Alamo Drafthouse

We went to the Alamo Drafthouse, today. They just started serving in our area. It's a dinner/movie idea and I really enjoyed myself. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to do something fun in Denver.

Startled

I looked up. His eyes irises were bright red, culminating in an unnatural yellow right near his tiny pupils. Contacts, I realized. I smiled brightly and continued to check-out their books. Funny, I didn't even notice the piercings and tattoos.
