One Hip Cat

This video has been making the rounds of the YouTube universe today. Why can't I have a cat like this? My cat just meows and pretends to be affectionate when it's perfectly clear he just wants me for my mad can opening skills. "Sleeping? Sorry, that's not my concern. If I had opposable thumbs you would be expendable, but until then your services are required in the kitchen--stat!" Now, it has been said that our cat has been heard to utter the word "Hello", and yes, it's true I have heard this myself, but it was only because he was desperate for attention. Tiger generally doesn't lower himself to speak English. This reminds me of the talking dog joke.

This week is Signal, the Southeast Electronic Music Festival here in Chapel Hill:

The second annual Signal Festival takes place Thursday, April 26th, through Saturday, April 28th, 2007 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The festival aims to enhance the awareness, appreciation, and popularity of electronic music in general and to familiarize the public with regional electronic music scenes. Signal unites performers and supporters of electronic music to foster communication, cooperation and exchange between local and regional electronic music artists and fans.

Cat's Cradle is hosting shows in support of the festival both Friday and Saturday night. I hope to make it to at least the Negativland show. Actually, there are several more venues involved in addition to the Cradle, so drop whatever you are doing and check it out! There is also an "un-conference" scheduled Saturday to coincide with the rest of the festival called BarCampSignal, which is sort of a free format community conference. That's the best way to describe it. I have yet to attend one of these, but it sounds pretty cool.
