I just love jumping spiders. Sorry. They’re so cute and for the most part not dangerous (and certainly harmless to humans in NZ).

If it’s both nocturnal and fairly sensitive to bright light then I’m never going to see it again. It’ll be under the bed hiding.

I have a plastic container at the ready, just in case. Really really want to photo it.

Came inside from the dark and there was a beautiful white jumping spider on my sleeve but it scarpered before I could catch it and photo it. I hope I can find it again.

No new music for weeks and then three come along at once that I’m playing in close rotation: Tiny Ruins _Olympic Girls_; Bob Mould _Sunshine Rock_; & Broods _ Don’t Feed The Pop Monster_.

The Broods one has had a few more spins: it’s still unmistakably them but there is a pleasing variation in song style now, plus a couple of bangers. It’s pretty good.

Remember when: back in 2008 a developer put a joke app called “I Am Rich” on the iTunes Store with a US$999 price tag… AND PEOPLE BOUGHT IT.

Not all heroes wear capes.

It’s going to be a hot week in the office as the Aussie heat wave makes its way across the sea to us. So I thought I’d try out this considerably simpler Japanese overnight cold brew system, and save some time & cash by taking the resulting coffee to work.

The way she thrums with a held-in tension in some scenes and lets it all show in others.

It’s too easy just to typecast someone as a comedic actor when they’re capable of lots more range than that.

Super happy to have finally taken a nice photo of the fairly cryptic Pīpīwharauroa. Here it is snaffling up a caterpillar it has found in a kōwhai tree.
