Look at the Sci and seeee

I'm just a poor station, I need no new shows,
Because I'm repeat this, repeat that
Little new, lots of old,
Any way the channel turns doesn't really matter to me, to me.

I recently discovered this application:

Guitar Layers

It's really cool. I bought it.

V&Q.

Tito's and Q tonic.

Had more Fever-tree over the weekend. I saw that it is fructose that is the sweetener in the light version of Fever-tree.

That looks clever.  It could provide much inspiration.

They make it sound like this show went to Venus all by themselves.

I've only played around a bit on it, so far. But it is inspiring and that's great.

I was just listening to the song from that link.  Very pretty, and the talent is obvious, but he doesn't slam you with it, he uses it for the music,.

When you really study his music, it really blows your mind.

I've had this book since the '80s:

Uncommon chord

I hope they paid that Galileo guy well, he made a lot of inventions.

Yup. For a lot of it, you need an insane reach.

If you stretch your leg out, and then put two fingers across your kneecap, as you bend your knee again it will stretch your fingers apart.

Hahaha, I used to do all sorts of finger stretching exercises, but hadn't heard of that one.

Kind of defeats the purpose, otherwise.

It makes playing complicated chords easier. I think it makes all playing easier. It's more like when I'm sitting down with a classical.

Oh, man, those "teacup" rides make me hurl.

A Hot Jupiter?

Hmm, is that on the Urban Dictionary?

Like a Venus Steamer.

2017-04-18 09:44:09 PM  
I think the Urban Dictionary just makes up definitions for things so you get something no matter what you enter.
 
2017-04-18 09:44:52 PM  
¯\_(ツ)_/¯There aren't any definitions for venus steamer yet.
Can you define it?
 
2017-04-18 09:47:30 PM  
Still smells like smoke out here.
 
2017-04-18 09:47:31 PM  
Remember when we used to do drunk iTuning?

Yeah. Well, I ordered a 3D printer and an underwater drone.

I'd prefer not to do so.

Ah, fires still going on?
 
2017-04-18 09:48:47 PM

Wednesday will be jealous.

crypticsatellite: IronTom: Still smells like smoke out here.

Ah, fires still going on?


Yeah, I think so.  The smoke makes it hard to drive, apparently.  Over 2000 acres burned.

Not super deep, but lots of lakes and rivers.

And lake monsters?  Is that why you got the underwater droid, for monster detection?  Looking for weapons that were tossed away?
