There's an off-shoot of great House music label Paper Recordings called repap. And an artist on that called 0898Dave, the number being the prefix to phone sex chat lines! I guess it's kinda refreshing sometimes for him to have a maybe honest or self-depreciating tag.
Anyway, he has a cool track with a sample that goes something like, "I have always thought that should I ever feel like giving it all up, I'd switch the scene and try out being a gorilla keeper in the zoo" or something like that from memory. And I'm hugely inspired by people that choose to pass GO and skip the usual circuits, instead striking out and following their passions instead. A brother of mine left a marketing job/house/fancy lifestyle in London to train as a snow boarder and now snowboards for fun or lessons most days thru winter, with Mtb guide or hotel transfer in summer and bar work of an evening. He honestly looks a good 20yrs younger than his 52yr old age might predict - and he just seems full of life compared to his greying aura lol of city life a decade earlier.
So here's to the ones that follow their hearts and pick a different outfit than the crowds. Have a whale of a time with it all!

They seem to, yes! Maple blows these 'bubble rings' with her blowhole & plays with them - girl has skill. Born into captivity, so you've got to do something to pass the time. There's a lot of controversy surrounding SeaWorld (of course), but seeing the animals being loved & taken care of first hand really gives you a different viewpoint than the narrow Blackfish perspective. I wouldn't work there if I felt the animals were being mistreated & these belugas seemed thrilled to play with us! 😃

It was SO awesome! We got to feed, pet & play with them. The big boy is Aurek & the beautiful girl giving kisses is Maple. Although I love all animals, belugas are extra sweet and adorable <3
