I'm limited to 510 characters for a description, so I'll waste a few making that comment. What else? There's a ton - are Big Bang and Cyclic Universe theories logical illusions? What forms of mathematics create beauty? Coffee, tea or a chocolate bar? ... or maybe what would an ideal partnership with someone be like? I'm both a "couch surfer" and explorer ... where might you like to go? I'm wishing us all the best.

Music Compilation #26 (Home Free)

23 Dec 2020 1 minute read 0 comments stevea68

Home Free is a 5 man acapella group I've followed for a while.  They've got a range of voices and either an incredible "beat boxer" or they're cheating ;)  In any case, it's a pleasure listening to them sing and here are a few of my favorites by them...

Music Compilation #25 (Joshua Radin)

23 Dec 2020 1 minute read 2 comments stevea68

Joshua Radin is a music composer who generally writes songs with a soft instrumental folk/indie/pop "vibe", but that's not always the case.  He sings and plays well with enjoyable harmonies (IMO).  I bought one of his CDs as a "thank you" and I hope...

Are modern governments a danger to traditional values and culture?

22 Dec 2020 1 minute read 6 comments stevea68

There are a lot of details I'd like to add, but I'll skip typing a lot this time and simply let Rand Paul (Ron Paul's son, I assume) take the floor to speak.

Music Compilation #24 (Piano compositions)

20 Dec 2020 1 minute read 0 comments stevea68

I had a friend as a teenager who was an excellent composer and musician.  I'd sit by him on the piano bench and could just watch and listen to him play practically as long as he was willing to.  He sung, played the guitar, lute and drums and wrote a...

An interesting paradox that suggests that aspects of life may not "work" as one believes.

20 Dec 2020 1 minute read 0 comments stevea68

I feel like I've resolved most all of it, but not completely and it's still quite unintuitive to me and it would likely apply to many investing in cryptocurrencies, though it applies to potentially many areas of life. I'll simply paraphrase it like t...

Music Compilation #23 (Conjure One)

20 Dec 2020 1 minute read 2 comments stevea68

I discovered Conjure One quite a few years ago and found it quite a fascinating mix of styles with lyrics that inspired a lot of thoughts.  The music flows well and has a bit of an exotic feel to it, for me. I'd forgotten about it after "rage quittin...

Music Compilation #22 (Katie Melua)

19 Dec 2020 1 minute read 8 comments stevea68

Grab something warm to sip on and toss a log on the fire, or maybe find a quiet corner of a dimly lit bar and sip on something colder ;)  Katie Melua is a singer and composer who generally accompanied with acoustic instruments.  She plays guitar and...

An update on the 2020 U.S. Elections and some general thoughts for anyone interested

18 Dec 2020 1 minute read 2 comments stevea68

7 U.S. States so far, and possibly more will be presenting more than a single candidate for their vote in the Electoral College.  This apparently isn't unprecedented and the primary manner of resolving this is, according to the U.S. Constitution, tha...

Music Compolation #21 (Tony McGuiness with Above and Below live DJ session)

17 Dec 2020 1 minute read 0 comments stevea68

Tony McGuiness is practically a one man band with some DJing gear and, like the Energizer Bunny once he gets started.  I'd recommend watching the Above and Beyond: Group Therapy #400 video instead unless you don't have an AdBlocker - way too many ads...

Music Compilation #20 (Enya)

17 Dec 2020 1 minute read 3 comments stevea68

The movie Far and Away had quite a memorable scene that I remember replaying over and over and ... on VHS too, so that made it a challenge but there was a song by Enya called Book of Days put to a scene with old Western land rush.  Here's a music vid...
