Lammily, a doll based on the average size of actual human girls. From what started as an idea to find out what the Barbie doll might look like if it were scaled to an average human comes this doll ready to be produced. The arms and legs articulate so she can were flats or heels, play sports and sit. It’s already 400% funded with 23 days to go. I might buy one for my office to remind myself that people are good.

    Maybe it’s a Suzuki method thing, but I’m weirded out by their foot stomping because my cello teacher always stressed that I should be holding the cello firmly with my knees so that I would have full range of motion from the hips up. In the beginning, she would suddenly grab at it to see if I were doing so.

    I also find lots of piano teachers don’t seem to stress posture and body position the way my Suzuki trained piano teachers did. It’s a bit like ergonomics for playing musical instruments.

    The toiletries in a drinking straw I found before but for first aid creams such as Neosporin or Hydrocortisone. You don’t need a fancy heat sealer. I used needle-nosed pliers and lighter to seal it. Works great!

    Thanks, Jodi! 15 years ago, a classmate gave me an Apocolyptica CD because he knew I played. I was trying to remember what it was called, because I have no idea where tha disk is anymore. The disk I had was almost all covers of a particular metal band, and I can’t remember which band it was either. I was really compelling, and I’m sorry it got lost in the shuffle of life.

    Plays Metallica by Four Cellos or Inquisition Symphony. Both great :) Second one covered Metallica again but also Pantera, Sepultura and Faith No More. These guys are great players and fun to watch too.
