wednesday update: living in the material world

A couple of weeks ago I reported that my hands were in the process of detaching from my arms. Gladly, they did not, in fact, fall off.  Instead, I spent a good 10 or so hours making a sparkling new hat in 100% wool.

When I make a hat, I’m usually sitting on the sofa, watching a movie or some whatever thing on TV. Now I won’t lie: even though I’ve lived without it before, I really, really (really) enjoy having cable TV. Mostly because of shows about space, House Hunters International, Boardwalk Empire and Dexter.

And I finished up this particular hat while watching Martin Scorcese’s brilliant HBO documentary George Harrison: Living in the Material World. Poignant is not a word I use often to describe things, and especially not things that I tend to like. But that is probably the best descriptor for a really respectful, touching, and in-depth portrait of a man’s spiritual journey. Admittedly, I knew almost nothing about George Harrison as an artist and a human being, and now I feel like he and I may have been cut from the same cloth in some ways. And I realize I just made it sound totally lame, but it’s a good documentary. So, so good. You can watch the trailer here.

So, I named the hat in honor of George Harrison, artist and spiritual being:

    I also love House Hunters International! Anything on HGTV for that matter. I have it on almost 24 hours a day, LOL.


    • I don’t know about you, but during some episodes of House Hunters International, I find myself muttering at the TV, “It’s a flat in PARIS, who cares if the bathroom is small?!” Sigh.

    I just want to mention I am very new to blogs and really loved your page. Probably I’m planning to bookmark your website . You really have terrific wrgsniit. Kudos for revealing your web site.

  4. świetny materiał dla osób, które sądziły, że postawią stronę a reszta się zadzieje. Ten kurs to zbiór katalogów, kroków w edukacji, które trzeba przejść. Wszystko wytłumaczone jest w przystępny sposób o co wcale w polskich realiach nie jest łatwo. Polecam!

  5. I have a tendency to become obsessive in regards to how I organize the information I have on the Web. Every few months I’ll spend hours on end organizing my blog, my Facebook account, and my Flickr account. I’m sure that bumps me up on the autism spectrum somehow.Anyway, thanks for the link — glad to hear you enjoyed my review too
