Friday? Aloha!

Amusing phrases from the online comic world today:

"... and listen to the soothing sounds of felt?" QC comment regarding possible pastimes for cymbal testers.
"... I wish to save the world but cannot navigate my closet?" Girl Genius comment regarding what Agatha's clothes say about her.

You may already know about the Puppini Sisters, but I heard them for the first time yesterday.  Interesting.  They're trying for an Andrews Sisters shtick and for the most part on The Rise and Fall of Ruby Woo, they succeed.  Some of the covers they do are naturals, like "It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing" (although theirs isn't a fully traditional cover) but they also do a good job with "Walk Like An Egyptian."
Not all tracks were winners for me but "Soho Nights" and "Jilted" were truly great.  Both of those are originals and I think they would do well to focus on that to move their music on rather than redoing other's works like in the failed (for me) "Could It Be Magic" or "Crazy In Love."  The Ruby Woo in the album title is the MAC lipstick color, a brash red favored by the singers who, everyone seems spastic to point out, are not sisters.  I'm sure there are samples and videos floating out there before the album is released next month.
