Starting Music for Mar. 18th, 2022

Aloha world -and happy National Awkward Moments/Sloppy Joe/Biodiesel/Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day! And on a more somber note, it is also National Supreme Sacrifice Day to honor those who gave all. Here in the Hall of Fame city located in NE Ohio (USA), it is FRIDAY, Mar. 18th –the 77th day of the year. We are starting with partly cloudy skies. Following are the weather stats from 7:30 a.m.


Forecast temps for yesterday were 48 and 70.

ONLINE SECURITY

I opt out of all unnecessary cookies, don’t do those ‘what kind of animal are you?’-type surveys, don’t ‘like’ posts my friends/family share if I can’t find/don’t trust the source, and avoid most of the ‘big media’ sites. Nonetheless, I still have to remove ‘big tech’ trackers every morning:



–and this is just my PC; it does not include my mobile devices!


THOUGHTS

Back in the day when I was living in the D/FW area, I used to love reading Blackie Sherrod’s “Scattershooting” articles. They were short little columns typically focused on sports, with Blackie’s humor and sarcasm sprinkled throughout. I have his “Scattershooting” book in one of my Amazon lists, but can’t seem to find time for any reading these days, so there it remains. Nonetheless, if you enjoy sarcastic sports humor and don’t mind that it will be mostly focused on D/FW area sports of the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s, I urge you to give it a read. You can either thank me or call me an idiot later.


Side Note: PLAY BALL!!


TODAY’S ELECTRONIC TRACK

“Justice vs. Wolfgang Gartner – Genesis Shot Pt. II (Thomas Radman Mash Up)” by Thomas Radman. This track starts out calmly enough, but soon the beat drops and it becomes a melodic cacophony (oxymoron!) of video game sounds, growls, glitches, and vocalizations. It’s a good workout song to get that blood pumping. Let’s go!
