Thinking outside the egg box

Thinking outside the egg box, originally uploaded by epredator.

Imperial measurements led to a cultural ideal that eggs are delivered by the dozen (12), or more usually a half dozen (6). Of course there is no real reason why the number cant be different. Yet after all these years of seeing 6 eggs in a box I found it odd to see 9 in our recent delivery from the online grocery store Ocado.
That slightly weird uncomfortable feeling when things are not in their usual place is a good one to seek out. It does not mean bad things are going to happen merely that you have got set in your ways and something new is occurring.

Party Ben mashups

One way and another (as I wrote over on feeding edge) I have got introduced to the work of Party Ben. Musical mashup maestro.
All his stuff is over on his website and all over other parts of the web.
Check out the Every car you chase mashup of police and snowpatrol. It is so subtle you would not believe.
I was transfixed when I heard this in Second Life, and waddya know there's a video mashup too.

I really love both these main songs, and it is a brilliant combination.
