A Grim Realization

I was just reviewing some of my old posts and it occurred to me that in some respects this blog is like the Truman Show without cameras and the writing staff on drugs.

Speaking of cameras, what would be a low cost but effective way of having a live cam on the birds nest. Would that be doable?

Also, I should probably point out that Tammy told me that the first yellow was going to be way too bright but I didn’t listen. I never listen. She’s always right.

    Or perhaps a web-based security camera? It’s be a twofer – birdcam in the spring and summer, security camera the rest of the year.

    Speaking of grim realizations, I discovered the other day that the band members of Rush are Ayn Rand fans. I find it hard to believe the same guys who made “The Big Money” can be Objectivists. Maybe they just don’t like large corporations and monopolies 🤷‍♂️

    I’ve always loved Rush’s songs because a common thread among much of them, particularly their 80s stuff, is a celebration of the human spirit imo. Their Power Windows album is among the best of their musical output

    Neil Peart isn’t an Ayn Rand fan. He read the books and unconsciously made 2112. But that was in his 20s. I think he isore on the socialist thing.

    Yes because what he had done was too close.one of Ayn Rand books so not look like he was ripping it off he gave it a nod.

    But if you listen to anything in the past 1980 there is like nothing in there like Ayn Rand philosophy.

    Oldies? OMG. Naw, 80’s & 90’s..well, I guess they are sorta “oldies” now. Sheeeitt, I’m old.

    OK, it MUST be way past my bedtime/.

    @Jay: I’ve got a Galaxy, if not for smartwatches I’d not wear a watch.

    My Timex has a stop watch feature, an alarm feature, a calendar, and is unhackable.

    My chip cards reside in a specific hard card case. Keeps the chip connections from being broken, and acts as a farraday cage. Bump passes can’t clone the card or tap charges.

    Back in the early ‘90’s, I got cybercrimed bad.

    Not a watch wearer but ditto on the hard case. Wouldn’t leave home without it.

    @NotMax:

    I’ve worn a watch so long I feel unballanced with out one,

    And asking someone if they have the time these days is a great way to steal a cell phone.

    asking someone if they have the time these days

    Also much less likely to get the rejoinder “if you’ve got the beer.”

    There’s lots of worse places in Alberta, than Hanna,

    I was just joking dude. I was poking fun at myself
    @NotMax:

    I’m doing that starting tomorrow. The next two weeks are going to suck. I have an exam this coming Tuesday and then the final exam the next Tuesday after that. Snow days and not getting through all of the material during lecture pushed the schedule back crammed everything together at the end of the semester

    Speaking of Rush, I actually like “Time Stands Still”.

    That’s about all I got, I’m really all over the place with my music consumption.

    Speaking of Rush

    Let us not speak of this again.

    DJ Cumberbund‘s YYMilk was lots of fun, but he apparently had to take it down.

    WAAF story about YYMilk.

    You guys are a tough crowd. Now I’m curious what everyone thinks of my musical tastes.

    That’s an eclectic list, that’s for sure!

    You like Cage the Elephant which is a big enough point in your favor, IMHO, to offset some of the stuff from earlier eras that hasn’t worn very well, from my perspective. Their “Ready to Let Go” is getting lots of airplay right now on the alternative stations, which it should – it’s a really good song, even by comparison with their other stuff.

    Oh, a dead music thread? Thanks, I don’t mind if I do. Rush is fine, if pretty hokey. I mean, you try being a nerdy teen whacked out on testosterone then and see who you picked. But ranking Power Windows with their best? Bracing! Both the opinion and the album. Bracing stuff. I’ll put it on when I need my ears eightially abused like they were routinely 30-40 years ago—you know, for nostalgia—but gimme Sector 2.

    Quoting from one article on this topic:

    Men and women really don’t see eye to eye, according to a new study.

    Females are better at discriminating among colors, researchers say, while males excel at tracking fast-moving objects and discerning detail from a distance—evolutionary adaptations possibly linked to our hunter-gatherer past.

    Just ask your buddy Google: “women see color better than men”
