Almost 15 years ago I wrote a silly song based on a typo, about the 19th century’s greatest nonexistent feat of engineering, the transatlantic canal between the United States and Ireland. Many years later, Jacob Haller arranged and sang an a capella version of my lyrics, and now, through the magic of the interweb, you can hear a fully realized version of the song by the all-mollusk* band El Submarinium. Check out the Ballad of the Eire Canal on their myspace page! (Their other songs ain’t bad either.)
Keira and I are starting a new daily photo project, inspired by Minty Forest. Each day, in San Francisco and in New York, we’ll look at Merriam Webster’s word of the day and let it influence the making of a photo. We won’t share our pictures with each other until they’re both posted side-by-side. Please take a look at Don’t Wiggle!
