Oh man, put on Steely Dan’s Do It Again, tune out the guitars & vocals, & focus on Becker’s bass part. Even the simplest Dan song in incredibly complex underneath. His gradual movement across the verses is some strong work.

And that, friends, is why we have a towel in our frying pan at all times.

I dunno if you care about sportsball, but Kawhi Leonard is finally back from injury & making his first start of the season for the Spurs tonight. They’ve been playing pretty well without him, & I am now anticipating a freight train through the league if he’s back in form & Aldridge remains aggressive.

Also, Duck Duck Go is the shit. Google-free since 2015.

Oh hey, day 5 caffeine free, & I really think it’s having a positive effect on my anxiety. Mornings are rough & I was in an inexplicably foul mood yesterday afternoon but I’m gonna stick this out for a while. I have now quit every drug there ever was, except heroin. (Which I never actually started)

Here's the cover art: @joshmillard did the etching & photo -- I cropped it, tinkered with the color a bit & added the type. Decided to call it done before I could second-guess it.

Carbon 7 album up on Bandcamp! Cortex aka @joshmillard of MetaFilter provided the laser etching & cover art photography.

(finally) very happy with this mix.

Good morning, Tootiverse. My brain thinks it’s time to go to work, typical Saturday- I’ve worked so many lately, but I am going to lounge here and do fuck-all for the next 2 or 3 hours.

Dangit, what's the name of the website that has the alternative Mastodon theme? I'm striking out with the goggles.

A thought. The song cycle of Skylarking is half a year. It starts with the summer solstice & ends with the winter solstice. It’s not a complete lifecycle because there’s no childhood. Partridge filled in that gap many years later with Apple Venus.

You know what? Heart Of The Sunrise requires physical conditioning, like a sport. Yeah, I’m out of shape - too much work & not enough practice.

I have opinions about music. They’re based on 54 years of intense scrutiny of the art form. Ask me anything.
