If you’re six feet tall, then three stacked boxes of LPs make an OK occasional standing desk.

Cage Omen

An ongoing series cross-posted from instagram.com/dsqt

Apparently the light from the dining room at night in the dark reflects off the metal case that is my copy of John Cage’s book-like object Rolywholyover A Circus, which sits on a shelf above home-office desk. This in turns casts an X perfectly positioned on what I think is called the window casing directly behind where my head is when I’m seated, but in any case this is in no way ominous.

Lab Rat

An ongoing series cross-posted from instagram.com/dsqt

Like a lab rat accessorized by scientists with some sort of mind-machine alpha-stage, pre-release technology graft, this humble, generic, ubiquitous model of doorbell has been raised to the ranks of high security thanks to the unlikely pairing of a digital touch pad. The pad comes with a sentience- and surveillance-suggesting red light. There are two other spots to its left where additional lights may appear, or maybe they are slots for cameras. Perhaps if you know the entry code, you’re aware of their purpose. Or perhaps that bit of knowledge is reserved for yet a higher tier still of security clearance.

Ah, Magnets
