stanleypiano.com @StanleyPiano, the world’s first interactive player piano, makes his worldwide debut at Seattle’s Capitol Hill Block Party. Stanley is a precocious instrument who takes song requests via Twitter. Stanley can play a lot of songs, but he loves indie music. He even went out of his way to learn a song for each of the bands playing at the Block Party. Stanley bares all as his moving parts (gears, bellows, hammers, valves) visibly work as the keys press themselves.

Last week Oskar was looking at Google Earth and asking “where’s the other planets?”
Me: “They only have Earth. That’s the only one they have mapped.”
Oskar: “But where’s the aliens?”
Oskar: “Dad, where are we, are we inside the moon?”
Me: “No, we’re on the earth.”
Oskar: “You mean inside it?”
Me: “No, we’re not inside it, we’re on the outside, on top of it.”
“No, we’re INside it. You’re lying, dad. You’re not telling the truth.”
Little girl in the park is ripping up grass & throwing it up in the air.
Me: “Why is it raining grass, what’s going on?”
“I don’t know! I’m wrecking the whole world!”
