Now that's fucking nice.



Wait...

And exception to the general rule regarding nice things is granted this occasion.

↑ That won't do any good for Bruce's OCD! :o

I suggest a calm and soothing environment:

A training video, for when Bruce finally moves to his lighthouse:



Technicalities:
"Filmed on 35 mm black and white Double-X 5222 film stock, augmenting the Panavision Millennium XL2 camera with vintage Baltar lenses designed in the 1930s. To enhance the image, making it resemble early photography, a custom cyan filter made by Schneider Filters that emulated the look and feel of orthochromatic film from the late 19th century was used."

"The film has an aspect ratio of 1.19:1, an almost-square frame that was used in the early sound years by filmmakers including Fritz Lang and G.W. Pabst. They choose the format because 'the spaces in this movie are meant to feel confined, it's more of a close-up movie than The Witch. The idea of widescreen only came about in the 1950s - we wanted to take people back further than that.'"
Personal note: one never holds a clay pipe that way or it will scorch your fingers. :mrgreen:

There's something cool about a house that sits precisely on the horizon, except that this one sits just slightly below the horizon. I'm afraid that would bother me.🤔

I traveled to the Aran Islands. The lady accompanying me was adamant that erecting the stone walls was used to combat sexual frustration.

Holy shit! A lovely place to explore. Booze is most likely superb. How was the food?

It's the Aran Islands in the bay of Galway, not the Arran Island in Scotland, so mostly Black Bush & Guinness, fish & chips and stews. I must admit booze & food were much better in the Shetlands.

But the place is fantastic: practically no trees, some grass for the animals (and foxes & bunnies), and wast swaths of naked limestone (with fossils), polished and eroded by the rains:

Image

The island was so poor the inhabitants, apart from fishing and a bit of ship wrecking, dug beds into the limestone and tried to grow potatoes in a mixture of beach sand and seaweed.
They also made famous sweaters, each family having its personal type of knot – so the corpse wearing it could later be identified as crabs don't eat wool. Well, you can still get them, and I have one.

It's also the Mecca of Celtic Music©, even the Picts themselves come there to learn from the masters.

People are a bit gruff, but earned my sympathy: drinking in one of the pubs around midnight I saw two young Guardai coming in to enforce closing hours. Everybody laughed and gently, very gently, pushed them out the door. They never came back. :mrgreen:

My dad made his mother a patio out of rocks we plucked from our land.

I think he mostly found them in a stream bed though. We had a tractor and a wagon.

Not a home exactly, but it seems to have potential as a lair.
