So an hour or so of Meatloaf tribute?  Bat Out of Hell in entirety?  Dashboard Light twinspin?

I'll see myself out.

Hello everyone.
Some great news, bandcamp Friday is coming back
 
2022-01-25 12:37:24 PM  
Yesterday afternoon, Yours Truly in the dentist's chair again. Assistant comes in to set things up and mutters something I don't catch. Then I hear a robotic voice announce, "Kelly. Clarkson." and the music starts.

Me: "Gaaah, what are you doing??"

Some back-and-forth ensues, and I finally convince the assistant that no music will be necessary. About 10 minutes later, the dentist comes in: "Alexa, play Top 20."

"Gaaah, no!!"

I think it's a great thing to offer to the patients. I understand that it's supposed to be calming for me, but 1. I don't need it, and 2. Top 20 is just going to make the drill seem less irritating by comparison.

Remind me to schedule all future dental appointments on show days. If they're going to insist that I listen to music while they're working on me, I can at least listen to pF.

Alexa sucks. She really has horrible taste in music.

I always bring earbuds to the dentist. Merzbow full blast.

This was just a filling. The (broken) one they removed will be replaced with an implant, so I've got a few more visits ahead of me.

The good news is, modern dental anesthesia is so good that I'm mostly just bored.

Yikes! Still that sucks. Fingers crossed that you can make requests. Just have them play Bowie or something - at least Alexa has that in her crap catalog.

We found out that Amazon Music does not have a drone station. And Alexa didn't recognize the name protoU, even though they do have her stuff. The dentist wouldn't let it go, so I told her to play some smooth jazz so we could get on with it already.

Listening over my phone hotspot today. Funny+ story:

internet went down this morning. My wife noticed when her Netflix abruptly quit. Me being the clever* person I am, I have my phone hotspot set up with the same SSID and password as the home router, so I just needed to turn off the router, turn on the hotspot and I'm back to work. Eventually I have a Zoom meeting I'm supposed to be attending, but my VPN has been a bit wonky so I send a note to let them know my phone can't keep up with the network demands (poor coverage in my house even with 5G, or so I thought) and I certainly won't be able to run Zoom (very sad). I do a bit more work and eventually wander out to find some lunch, only to discover my wife watching Netflix again and she says "look, the internet is back!" "No. No it isn't. You're streaming through my phone." I also notice the picture is crystal-clear 4K. No wonder my VPN was having trouble. I did not rejoin the Zoom meeting.

+ I think it's a funny story at least.

* "clever" to a software developer usually describes something that is unnecessarily complicated or non-obvious that is going to come back to bite you in the butt eventually.

so the station manager just heard my social media promo. and he's like that's really great can you do one for the station in general (i.e. without mentioning my show) that we can play at random times? i'm like sure of course.

so, in my own subversive way, the cure is slowly infiltrating kuci.

This song is playing in the background in an 80s movie while the protagonist contemplates how they've been an asshole.  Possibly while montaging walking on the beach.
