Friday Finds #42 Dead Space, The Circular Piano, and Tim Tams



Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who noticed the Circular Piano during the halftime show at the Super Bowl. Totally-radically-cool-dude.



Dear, Forrest, while I already knew that we don’t play piano with our fingers, you still somehow make the concept fresh and new with your words – always well written.


While we’re on the topic of Forrest Kinney’s posts, I also loved his recent post “A Favorite Story on Mozart’s Birthday.” Unlike Mozart, however, I would have opted for dinner rather than improv time. :-S



How do you use “dead space” during lesson time?



My students are getting Valentines from me for the first time thanks to Wendy Steven’s new Valentine cards. I printed them out and attached an individual heart-shaped Hershey’s milk chocolate to each one. It’s the little things.

“Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh!!! Australian Tim Tam Biscuits Are Finally Available in America!!!!!!” I say to my husband one evening while reading this article.

“That is sooo going on your Friday Finds, isn’t it?” he says.

Yep, he knows me too well…

For all of you Americans, “biscuits” is Aussie slang for “cookies.” Gotta love the Tim Tam and yes, while living there we were cultured in the “Tim Tam Slam.” Of course, my favorite ones, the mint, aren’t coming. 🙁 I’ve seen Tim Tam’s in the U.S. but not without driving to a big city and going to a specialty international grocery of some kind like Cincinnati’s Jungle Jim’s. Now if only they’ll come to my local small town Walmart. Think I’ll get lucky?
