I started earlyish today and this track “The Great Unknown” by Mighty Oaks is setting the tone for my morning:
It’s on this “Relax & Rewind” playlist that’s become one of my go-to work playlists.
I really enjoy Tall Heights‘ “Horse to Water”. In particular, I love the strings you hear in the chorus. The music video is a little odd, but the music is terrific:
I first heard the track on Spotify so here it is:
I just signed into my site’s dashboard and I noticed this curious JetPack banner:
So I clicked on the button and this loaded:
Lol! Oh you crazy people!
One of my wife‘s DIY projects was to take some old, coloured
beads glass stones and create these light catchers. I finally got around to hanging it up over our balcony. They’re very pretty when they catch the light.
Postscript: Gina pointed out to me that I failed to mention the most important aspect of her creation. She made it using old Nespresso pods which she flattened to create the disks that the glass stones (not beads) are affixed to.
This is another reason why the Internet Archive is just incredible. The Great 78 Project is a collection of old recordings that pre-date LPs and it’s amazing:
The Great 78 Project is a community project for the preservation, research and discovery of 78rpm records. From about 1898 to the 1950s, an estimated 3 million sides (~3 minute recordings) have been made on 78rpm discs. While the commercially viable recordings will have been restored or remastered onto LP’s or CD, there is still research value in the artifacts and usage evidence in the often rare 78rpm discs and recordings. Already, over 20 collections have been selected by the Internet Archive for physical and digital preservation and access. Started by many volunteer collectors, these new collections have been selected, digitized and preserved by the Internet Archive, George Blood LP, and the Archive of Contemporary Music.
Here is one example that I noticed on the front page of the collection. It’s “La Vie En Rose” by Edith Piaf; Louiguy; Edith Piaf Chansons Parisiennes; Guy Luypaerts:
If you love old music then you will enjoy this collection. You can follow the project on Twitter if you are interested in new additions:
