BirdSynth pic (?!)

While we are focused on cats, occasionally a photo with other animals is too cute to pass up, such as this one of budgies taking over a Casio keyboard.


This actually marks the second “birdsynth” picture, as we featured an owl here.

Post-weekend Cat Blogging with Luna

It was a rather eventful weekend here with a film project and then a bit of unexpected excitement around a show at Berkeley Arts last night featuring Pitta of the Mind. In the end, everything went well, though Luna would have preferred less excitement. Here she is coming out of hiding after my friends from the film project left and reclaiming her territory.


She is quite fond of this toy piano. I have even heard her press the keys, though I haven’t been able to capture it yet.

I need to find this cat toy keyboard! It would be great for circuit bending and future performances.

CatSynth pic: Mojo on the piano

From the Facebook group Black Cats Are Good Luck.  Not a synth per se, but keyboards and pianos are fair game here.

“The amazing Mojo =^.^=”
