Glass is endlessly fascinating as an artistic medium.
Some pretty amazing stuff at the Corning Museum of Glass. Wonder if I could build a glass studio in the basement.
I’m not much of a Guy Fieri fan, but we stopped outside Cleveland for a late lunch at one of the places he featured – Melt Bar And Grilled – and this is what I got.
Om. Nom. Nom.
Also a very nice Kentucky bourbon-barrel ale.
Via the feed from the John Foxx & The Maths site, I found my way to Gazelle Twin.

I like. The bio makes her sound a bit like an intellectual, anti-pop Lady Gaga, with the costumes and masks and all, which comes off a little pretentious. (“Art with a capital ‘A'”? Really?)
But the music is strangely evocative (or perhaps evocatively strange). Check out the site’s interactive album, The Entire City, combining atmospheric electronica and ethereal, Kate Bush-like vocals with hypnotic video imagery. Blink and you’ll see something new.
I cannot tell you how happy I am that John Foxx is touring and making new music. Wishing the Interplay Tour had some US dates on it… maybe next time.
Supporting the tour: Tara Busch, who also makes some damn fine music.
Cheap, ill-maintained rides operated by minimum wage stoners = fun fun fun!
