Kalasinars Hind Harmony Inline Double arrived. It is a beautiful oc and I have been playing it over the past week or so.

Now I am waiting for the Maparam Double from Kalin (he posted it over the weekend) :D

I will now be very pleased and satisfied with my ocarina collection as I will have just about everything I want.

To be honest though my next and probably final purchase for now will be a bass ocarina. I need to weigh up my options and decide which one I want

I have that book...it is...amazing :love:

Philippe Faraut is one of my favourite artists and that book helped me sculpt my Attius Grey sculpture ^^

You will love it, i'm sure of it :D
I got it because you mentioned Philippe Faraut on your Attius Grey topic, and from seeing your work. :thumbsup:

I've been drumming my udu a lot lately (a "Neck Udu" by Schlagwerk), so I decided it's time to order another, different udu. I bought one with a skin attached, adding some of the possibilities and sounds of a darbuka to the udu. It's the same as in this video:

No, but a close relative.

This is a Hawaiian IPU. More precise an ipu heke'ole, as opposed to an ipu heke. It is basically a hollowed out gourd with a cord attached. It's a traditional instrument to accompany the hula.

This is my old udu. It's from Africa, from Nigeria.

My Maparam DAC arrived tis morning :boogie:

I cannot even begin to describe how excited I was when I saw the post van this morning.

Unfortunately I havent opened it yet as I was running late for work (as usual).

We have an extra long weekend here in Australia (Easter and Anzac Day) and wont be returning to work until next Wednesday

Something tells me I will be playing her all weekend :D

Ill definitely let you all know my impressions of her in the next few days.


Also, id just like to let everyone know that Kalin was absolutely awesome to deal with and id recommend him to anyone if he was to sell anything else on here. Thanks again mate

Well in Australia, Anzac Day (the day we honour soldiers that have fought and soldiers that have died) is on the 25th of April. It just so happens that this year it falls in the middle of the Easter celebrations so we get Good Friday off, Monday off for Easter and Tuesday off for Anzac Day.

Work finished on Thursday and we dont go back til next Wednesday :D

Ohh its Easter weekend? I always forget about religious holidays, lol. Just another Sunday 'round 'ere.

Coming in the mail tomorrow is my custom medallion. After that I have several things to look forward to:

1)my Vibram FiveFingers shoes
2)my spinthariscope (technically a geigerscope since the thorium source is detachable)
3)two samples of uranium ore: 15grams of Pitchblend and 9grams of Gummite (both for a fluorescent display behind lead glass that will decorate my mantle).

@KypSyd -- Lucky! Dang I could really use more than a day extra off (I do have today off). We USians really get the short end of the stick when it comes to holidays/vacations/etc. I get a whole 10 days for vacation and that's considered insanely good XD

As for Easter holiday, we also aren't religious but use the long(ish) weekend as an excuse for the family to get together. Only annoying thing is thanks to a battle between religious and anti-religious groups, Spring Break varied wildly for everyone this year and half my family are teachers and got the 'other' Spring Break. Blah. XD

@Sigurthr -- I forgot to mention about the vibrams - They might feel a bit loose when you first put them on. Your feet will stretch into them. That's how I ended up with mine - hubby got 40's, thought they were too big and got 39's, and within about a week of wearing the 39's they were too tight and fit perfectly in the 40's. The 39's were too big for me at first but also fit fine within about a week. I subsequently had to get half-size larger work shoes XD

Today in the mail I got a practice bow and crossbow set. It's for "my son" ... cough cough... I didn't get both because I wanted to play too... nope >.>

I ordered the following recently:

2 night lights (Mushroom, and egg shaped one), a star projector lamp, a screen protector, a laptop remote control, and a fishbone shaped wire winder object.

I addressed them to the place I was staying at in a dinky town in Michigan, and totally didn't factor in shipping delays...so the stuff for my computer would need to be forwarded to my actual home base, where I am now.

--
I arrived home after being gone for around a month, and so FINALLY I was able to open my ocarina packages.
There's 6 new members to add to my collection 8-D

(2) Honest/Sincere Ocarinas
(1) Hind Tenor F
(1) Ocarinamusic F4 (Rotter)
(1) 6 hole mini G (Rotter)
(1) 11 hole souvenir ocarina from Okinawa

Thanks for the warning, Spoony! I suppose normal shows compress our feet a good bit, and we're used to that. I couldn't get the 38s on at all, lol, it was so small I was sure a 39 wouldn't fit either, so I'm not too worried about the 40s fitting.

Um, yes, of course it's not been delivered yet. ^^;
I don't even know if it's been shipped yet, since they don't automatically update you if it's already gone out. I know they usually ship it right away though (since they arrive pretty fast), just that they don't send you an automatically generated email about it, nor can you check the status online via the songbird website.

This isn't the first time I've ordered from Songbird. This is the second time I've ordered from the website, and I've ordered from them via their ebay store before. I think, if anything, the only thing that gets shipping notification is the one on ebay...and even then it's not all the time, since I remember one instance in which the status on ebay was only checked as shipped weeks after it already got to me. xD

The first time I ordered from Songbird, I had quite a few questions to asked, so they called me about it and then let me know my order was going out that same day. All other instances, I just had to wait and hope they already sent it out.
