Music: Emergence

Just a very upbeat, happy song to celebrate our emergence from Winter into Spring.

Fountain Pen Geekery!

I’m a fountain pen geek, so I did some tinkering on my Noodler’s Ahab flex pen. The “flex” is super stiff, not like a proper dip nib used for calligraphy. It also had a typical fountain pen “ball end” on the tip, to make writing smoother. I really like dip pens, but wanted something more in-between for daily use. So I proved I’m not a complete idiot with power tools by grinding out little curves in the steel nib body. These curves make the nib flex much, much easier — before, I had to apply an awkward amount of pressure to get any line variation. I sharpened up the nib tip a bit, because I don’t mind “scratchy” pens if they give me a thinner line. Then I widened the ebonite ink channel to promote better ink flow. I’m really happy with the results! It might not look like a big difference but it feels wonderful to use.

Poo’s AMAZING Theme Song

I made a theme song for Poo! (In Studio One, with loops, duck noises, and vocals). I cannot explain it, but it features his favourite lyrics, with help from the kids, and expresses his FABULOUS, UNIQUE personality!

(If you like strangely catchy bizarre and random things, this is for you!)
