Pic a Day in May: May 31, 2015

And, it’s the last day of May, so it’s the last of the “Pic a Day in May” photos.

Today I spent most of the day doing chores around the house. One of them being cleaning the gutters.

My mind is in here somewhere...

I really dislike heights.

Pic a Day in May: May 30, 2015

Our buddy Ross is traveling for work, so I’m checking in on his cat while he’s out.

*le meow*

She’s a talkative thing.

Hi-Fi Friday: May 29, 2015

Previously…

I have this method of ranking music in my library, which currently consists of 34,968 songs: By default, all new songs in my library get ⭐️⭐️⭐️. As I listen to them, I sort them as follows: ⭐️ means it’s “rubbish” (as Dr. Spo would say) and I’ll probably delete it from the library, ⭐️⭐️ means it’s just “meh” but I’ll probably keep it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️ means it’s okay and we will probably talk over it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means I really like and may potentially sing at random, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means everyone better shut the fuck up because my song is on! You know the kind of songs I’m talking about. We all have them.

These are mine, one post at a time.

I’m starting my approach to this with songs I’ve given ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to in iTunes. There’s only 90 of them at the moment. I’ll probably sneak in an occasional ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as well.

So… I have this thing for Doctor Who, as you might have seen. It’s been there since I was a kid going all the way back to the 70s.

The soundtracks for the series since it’s restart in 2005 have been phenomenal. Murray Gold composed a piece called “I am the Doctor” (you can hear it here) for the Eleventh Doctor in an episode called “The Eleventh Hour”. It’s good.

But someone did it one better. Somehow. They made a dubstep version of it. While I’m not a fan of dubstep for the most part, I really like what it added to the composition.

Trust me, I’m the Doctor.

Until next time...

Pic a Day in May: May 29, 2015

I was going to take a picture of the rain, since it’s done that pretty much non-stop since we returned from Chicago this past weekend.

Instead, I present to you Mother Nature’s wrath. Or at least her dislike of electronics. We’ve had incredible lightning here with all this rain. Unfortunately, a strike nailed our phone line somewhere down the line, which then took out the DSL modem. Which then took out the built-in network router. Which then traveled to the other wired network components and took them out: the Roku, the Blu-Ray player, and the A/V Receiver. Not to mention the DSL modem/router itself.

Dead...
Dead…

*le sigh*

Apparently I’m now the one who gets to go get groceries…

This little piggy went there...

How the Hell did that happen?
