One of the telltale signs that you might be a Crazy Cat Lady is having cat-related tattoos. The folks at BuzzFeed assembled an awesome gallery of 38 different feline tattoos - that is tattoos of kitties, not tattoos on kitties. These are a few of our favourites, but we love them all. Head over to BuzzFeed to view the rest.

We have been informed that the second kitty above has its own tumblr! You can follow Lil Bub.

The Castro Theatre premiered “Lou Harrison: A World of Music,” a film about the eponymous composer’s life, works, and contributions to Western music. It was really a wonderful film, but what was more wonderful was what preceded it: a (mostly, with some off-stage accompaniment) solo performance on organ piano by renowned minimalist Terry Riley. His appearance was what I mainly went for, but the film itself, about a composer which I frankly had never heard of before (embarrassingly since he was from California as well), was very moving both in its content and its message. Not unlike Reich and other contemporaries, Harrison studied and borrowed major aspects of eastern and Asian music, particularly Indonesian gamelan and Chinese guzheng music, and combined those elements with that of Western chamber and other conventional forms. He was also an inventor of many Chinese-influenced instruments for use in his own pieces. Harrison wrote music and poetry, conducted his own compositions, often arranged for dance performances, painted, and in general had a wide berth of influence on the musical and creative world in general. He died of a heart attack in 2003.
