This morning as I’m catching up on that linking thing I do, the words of a certain cool curator grab my attention. It’s a stream of consciousness kind of thing (I really enjoy) that urges me to visit the linked site. As I enter the site, its style/flavor immediately reminds me of another site I consider to be a classic.
My mind’s in fun mode now and I start exploring Kicks’ linked site. The first thing I encounter is a piece a for piano and violin created by the site’s author, Luming Hao. It’s different – eerie and engaging. Nice. Then I explore the song that inspired the piece, a freeform head-banger that’s most listenable. I’m smiling now, thinking how thankful I am when the surf leads to magical things.
