Orange Cat In A Blue Box (yes, it’s our Django!)

Django was quite comfortable in this little box for some time last night. He had no idea how cute he was. – from Instagram

I love my original old copy of #OnTheBeach by #NeilYoung because the pattern on the beach furniture is printed on the INSIDE - where the record goes! How cool is that! Samuel and I played "Motion Pictures" on our webcast today, replete with his sweet lap steel (he manages to sound just like the late, great #BenKeith!) and my harmonica on one of those dang neck braces where the harp seems to go away from you every time you try to play it.

Our Woodface singles box

The only #Woodface single we actually have in our Woodface singles box was Four Seasons In One Day, which came with it (and which, incidentally, I sang on both of my webcasts in the last 24 hrs.) I think Marjorie found this in that cool record shop in Bellingham, WA, whose name I've forgotten. But we also use it to store our single of Nails In My Feet, which was especially dear to us as it's signed by the whole of #CrowdedHouse (for it is they) and as well as the scintillating title song, it includes the then rare You Can Touch, an absolutely gorgeous song, which later surfaced on the outtakes album Afterglow. I was also surprised to find a block of wood in there, appropriately enough. I think I might have put it in there to reduce the risk of squishage when we were moving here from Canada. Anyway, I just wanted to post this because I was discussing Nails In My Feet with @lotusrootsky - hi!

This is our Mugen and Takamine acoustic guitars with our black Fender Telecaster in the middle. Not sure if Juno (our black cat) will be taking part [edit: she did!] but she's minding the gear for now, as you can see.

Sometimes, with a little trick iPhoneography, viz. VSCOcam, Juno isn’t so unphotographable after all.

It’s so HARD to photograph a black cat! In contrast to orange Django, who’s infinitely photogenic, I’ve only rarely been able to get a good shot of Juno. This one actually looks weirdly grainy and not that great on the big screen, but on the iPhone I was quite pleased with it.
