Starting Music for Mar. 26th/27th, 2022

Aloha world! I hope this finds you enjoying this Make Up Your Own Holiday/Purple (epilepsy awareness)/National Nougat/Spinach Day. Tomorrow is National Scribble/Joe/Spanish Paella Day (and a special Happy Birthday to my aunt!) Here in the Hall of Fame city located in NE Ohio (USA), it is Saturday, Mar. 26th –the 85th day of the year. We are starting with schizophrenic skies (it’s raining.. no wait.. it’s sunny.. no wait.. cloudy.. umm.. it’s snowing.. hey the sun’s.. nevermind.. it’ll change in 15 minutes or so). Following are the weather stats, astronomy highlights, music suggestions, and more. Don’t forget -lights out at 8:30p tonight for one hour (Earth hour)!

Forecast temps for yesterday were 39 and 44.


ASTRONOMY

Legend: asterism = like a constellation, but smaller; binary system = solar system w/2 stars; elongation = furthest point in orbit form Earth’s PoV); occult = in front of; terminator = line between light and dark


Solar Cycle 25: Sunspot AR2974 explosion produced an M1 class solar flare and hurled a CME towards Earth (details at spaceweather.com).

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

Just really ready for Spring to give ol’ Man Winter the boot!


THIS WEEKEND’S ELECTRONIC TRACKS

Please listen through a decent set of headphones or a good set of speakers before you judge the tracks. Trying to play electronic tunes on a mobile device or mono-style speaker will likely result in a disappointing listening experience. You will also essentially be telling the artist that you don’t care about all the time they put into getting each and every note just right. Hear the difference 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. Enjoy the track(s):


“Russian Roulette (Original Mix)” by SirensCoel. Now that you’ve had your first taste of Dubstep (Starting Music for Mar. 24th, 2022), here’s a more advanced track to try and wrap your ears around!

For Sunday, here’s a good, straight-forward rock instrumental: “Stapled Shut” by Jimmy K. Alexander.

Expand your musical boundaries and give the track(s) a listen.


Moving onward..
