Happy White Day! and other interesting discoveries

So this is something I didn't know of before now (And is brought to me by the nice people who run http://www.jlist.com):

Today is White Day, the day that Japanese confectioners and retailers have decreed will be the day men give something back to women who gave them a gift on Valentines Day, one month ago. While white chocolate is a favorite, other popular items include candy, cute character goods that say "Thank You" and more. If you got some chocolate from a Japanese girl on Valentines Day, be sure and give her something today!
Steak and Blowjob Day came to mind-- but at the same time, this seemed somehow... cute. Sweet. I dunno.


I am listening to a harp piece commissioned by a fantasy author: he asked a friend of his to write something intended to be played by two harpists, as his world features people who are conjoined twins rather often, and there is one scene in the first book where a pair of conjoined twins are playing a pair of harps.
It's an interesting piece- very... lovely, very strange, very unique. it's not Celtic harping, for openers.
The piece is composed in a very curious 3/4, as well.
The name of the piece is the same as the name of the trilogy of novels: 'The Stone Dance Of The Chameleon'. You might hear it, if you like, on this page on the author's website, where there is also some commentary on the process of creating the piece. The composer's named Phamie Gow: her website is http://www.phamiegow.com
