Man, Pandas are the greatest.

"The fact that pandas need to conserve energy is clearly evident; all they seem to do is eat and sleep.
"Bursts of energy are avoided or reduced to an absolute minimum. Males are especially lazy and waste no effort on territorial defence or social interactions.
"They avoid energy sapping confrontations by scent marking, which maintains a physical distance between individuals.
"Anal glands are rubbed on scenting posts throughout their range. Males even urinate against trees while doing handstands; the higher the pee the more dominant the signal."

Mash-ups of actual songs seem much cooler when other people do it. I tried making something purely out of samples from Belle and Sebastian's "Space Boy Dream" and Radiohead's "Exit Music (for a film)" and got Radio Telescope Blues but it doesn't sound so hot.

I'm still within the margins of vague doability for NaNoWriMo. I got over 5k done today, 12k to go, and four days left. So... close... to 40k... but so tired...
