Aloha world! I hope this finds you enjoying this World Meteorological Day. Here in the Hall of Fame city located in NE Ohio (USA), it is Wednesday, Mar. 23rd –the 82nd day of the year. We are starting with rainy skies. Following are the weather stats.



Forecast temps for yesterday were 44 and 57.

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

There seems to be a lot of pro-Putin stuff on Minds -can’t help but wonder if it’s full of the Russian propagandist entities that have been banned from FB and the like since 2016. It’s also full of politically-charged nonsense, just like FB and other entities used to be. Obviously, those that post these things are after as much Minds coin as they can get, are well aware that politically-charged memes are attention-getters, and are willing to post stuff they may not necessarily believe themselves. Frankly, I’d like to see more effort and time spent on original content and intellectual reasoning over gut-reaction, ‘the other side is evil’ crap.


I’ve spent at least a decade on each side of the American political aisle and can tell you from experience that both sides will try to brainwash into thinking the other side is pure evil. What I’ve learned is that both sides are full of the good and the bad, just like real life and real people. If you want me to take your political slant on things seriously, go run for office, because as far as I’m concerned, political memes are old, played-out propaganda, and there’s nothing I hate more than trying to be manipulated by someone who is only after coin.


So show me something new and creative -or at least something that took some real effort. Otherwise, I’m scrolling right on by, because just hitting ‘share’ takes about as much effort as peeing.


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.


“On Edge” by JustCasey. This track is short and heavy! It’s pretty much just bass, drums and heavily distorted electric guitar. And boy does it live up to the name! It definitely gives you that ‘on edge’ feeling when you’re just ready to explode. This is great song to expel some of that pent-up negative energy you might be harboring. Expand your musical boundaries and give it a listen.
