Went to a Kraftwerk show on Monday. Kraftwerk has never struck me as a particularly loud or bass-heavy band. Boy was I wrong! I have never before experienced bass so powerful that I could feel my clothes moving, or that I had trouble breathing sometimes because the vibrations made my nose think there was something in it. Especially in a space large enough for my entire apartment building to fit into. It was a real thrill, though, and I definitely need to buy a CD or two now.
Garden census: lupines, peas (or maybe beans), tomatos (or maybe lettuce), broccoli, cauliflower, and today the first pumpkin sprouted! That just leaves the beans, lettuce, and corn. I have no idea whether any of this is going to work out because I haven't tried gardening since I was a little kid and I've never ever done it in pots and planters on a deck, but the worst that can happen is that it all dies and I don't get any flowers or fresh veggies. In particular, pumpkins and corn in a pot strike me as very optimistic, but that's part of the fun, I guess.
