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

On this day in 1992 I was suffering from pre-wedding jitters as I was about to marry my fiancé in what was at the time, a big ol’ fancy pink hotel in Los Colinas (Irving), Texas. Hindsight shows that I had good reason to be nervous, but at the time, aside from the jitters, I mostly just remember being excited about the future and taking the next step in manhood –becoming a husband. I had a decent job, we were leasing to own a house in The Colony, my car was paid off and hers was getting close. Everything was going according to plan. Little did I know how fast everything can unravel.


It’s not easy to do, but try your best not to take anything for granted.


TODAY’S ELECTRONIC TRACK

Please keep in mind that most of these tracks are best heard through a decent set of headphones or a good set of speakers. Trying to play them on a mobile device or mono-style speaker will likely result in a disappointing listening experience. You can hear it for yourself by playing them on a mobile device without external speakers or headphones hooked-up, and then listen to them again with headphones. You might be surprised at the difference.


“Sub Antix - Minutes” by Sub Antix. This track is a Deep House/Dubstep/DnB (Drum and Bass) mashup with hints of Jazz. It’s pretty chill, with nothing too crazy, but definitely off the beaten path. It includes some unusual vocalizations that oddly work, and subdued growls that provide an underlying tension. Expand your musical boundaries and give it a listen.
