    The moon photographed over 28 days at the same place and at the same time.
  2. Raspberry PI 4 As An Audio Streamer

    Occasionally heard of this Raspberry Pi and it's piqued my interest - especially after I lost the ability to do the rodcast thru Nicecast a while back. ... but, for now, I just send music thru Sonos speakers located throughout the house and just think about sending stuff beyond those confines.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yeah, boy. Lots of sampling here: Steve Miller, György Ligeti (with a nod to Stockhausen's Hymnen: Region IV breathing segment - or is it "Dave Bowman" from 2001: A Space Odyssey"), The Dubliners, Pink Floyd, ... I think it may work better as a suite of tunes that segue rather than individual ones - even with the Dixieland tracks folded in(!) Maybe Zweistein could be a close comparison or even Marks & Lebzelter, but there was more of this kind of thing during those times than people want to admit to.

    Well, actually, that's not true. Yes, he did drugs for a limited time, but to call him a heroin junkie is waaaay off the mark. He had more of a bad time as a child with severe spinal meningitis than anything drug related. He still feels, naively, that kids should be informed about drugs and that the "government" should stay out of the business of regulation, but that's another issue.

  6. Yeah, since we're exploring the great Esteban Jordan, I thought I'd throw in these two versions of Ran Kan Kan. First is the Hacienda Records studio version followed by a fun live one from Austin City Limits. Got to experience him at least three times and one part of my mind always wanted to cRaZy dance while another part made me stand slack-jawed.

    😂 Don’t you recognize the now plump and flabby whackjob, John(ny) “Rotten” Lydon?
  8. I have a twenty year old Prius that came with a 6-disc built-in changer, so that’s my method, but when I read stories like this, I wonder if I really ever want to get anything newer - especially something that would enable me to attach an iPod Touch.
