New music from Solarference! Not only amazingly innovative sounds but solid artistic and cultural goals:
“…songs that carry a collective theme of freedom: freedom from the constraints of relationships, gender, poverty, imprisonment and working conditions.”
Sounds good to me. Go support them on indiegogo! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/solarference-locks-bolts-album

MARVEL AT OUR CULTURE
@aaronpk so are you still planning to blog about the process?
“What if the difference between not being addicted and being addicted was the difference between seeing the world as your park and seeing the world as your cage?”
I can’t help but think this applies to so many more issues than just substance addiction — depression, for example. Perhaps understanding other things which fit this pattern as forms of addiction is a good world-understanding lens.
New profile photo thanks to @iwontsignuphere!
Hello Steffen! Hopefully this reply will show up…
#pigupdate they spend the whole time schnuffling around in soil, rolling around in soil and eating compost but still manage to look FABULOUS
We can learn a lot from these creatures, apparently.

Thanks to everyone who came to the workshop on Saturday! It was great fun to dance with you all, and to get some international perspectives on polka traditions :) I hope you all had as good a time as I did!
If you missed it, didn’t hear about it or want to do it all over again, we’ll be running a similar workshop at this year’s Vaka festival in Akureyri (15th-18th June), and there’ll be all sorts of other nice stuff going on too.
Until then, keep up the nice music and dancing in Reykjavík, I’m looking forward to being back :)
P.S. if anyone took photos, it’d be great to have copies — posted here is fine, emailed in high resolution to firstname.lastname@example.org is even better!
A morning of post-travel sleep left me with enough energy to help secure the last of the twelve fruit trees at the mill, and make little name signs for all the varieties.
Thanks to the new door and my dehumidifier, the workshop is finally down to 54% air humidity, suitable for instrument building. We also had many good discussions with some lovely visitors about them potentially moving here, and the future of the project. Tomorrow some pigs will arrive to help us plough the garden, and while I was away a pair of barn owls moved into one of the dead poplar trunks by the gate. Generally everything’s looking up…
