Cosmic Journey (2021 soundtrack)

tcr! · Apr 3, 2021 at 10:00 am

Audio (MP3): 20210401 - Cosmic Journey (2021 soundtrack)

Video (MP4): 20210401 - Cosmic Journey (2021 soundtrack)

Continuing with the black and white musical theme, I spent a couple months of this portion of the pandemic adding electronic music to a trimmed down 1936 Russian space opera movie. If you like stop animation and CCCP rockets and ambient techno beats, this is for you.

In the year 1946, the Soviet space program is undergoing turmoil. Professor Sedikh, who is planning to lead the first manned exploration to the Moon, is denounced by his rival Professor Karin as being too old and too mentally unstable for the mission.

This journey clocks in around 12 minutes 33 seconds and sure, listening to the audio-only version is grand, it’s not as grand as the video-and-audio coupling. The music more closely follows the movie scenes whereas with my previous black and white work I wrote the music first and adapted the footage to the melodies.

This is a lot of fun, it makes me feel like I’m playing a video game but I have no control

If you look outside you can see Venus chilling by the moon. And maybe Uranus.

AR photo of the southern sky

Peeps, this is an augmented reality photo taken from my side yard, facing south.

If you look for the brightest star just bottom left of the moon then what you’ll really find is Mars.

The app I’m using is Sky Guide for iOS. You’ll love it.

I’ve been looking for the past couple weeks and I thought it was Mars at first. Some others have said it’s Antares.

Antares is farther to the right 😎

The light is green for both sides

tcr! · Apr 30, 2018 at 8:55 am

Audio (MP3): 20180430 - The light is green for both sides

This scene is my truck. I’m barreling north on Randall Road and need to turn left at the next intersection. There’s a handful of cars that are also barreling south toward the intersection. Because everybody’s got to get to work.

The light is green for both sides. Timing will be close but the southbound traffic has the downhill advantage. I add a little acceleration to the equation. A little horsepower to even the odds.

The light turns yellow so I slow down and then stop at the red light.

I’m always grateful when the cosmos saves me from myself. 😊

Aug 21st’s solar eclipse

tcr! · Aug 11, 2017 at 8:34 am

An eclipse chaser explains why the rare celestial event shouldn’t be missed

An eclipse chaser explains why the rare celestial event shouldn’t be missed

The experience can be addictive, Baron says. A total solar eclipse lasts only a few minutes — just a couple minutes on August 21st, depending where you are — but those few minutes can give you a “feeling of incredible connection to the universe,” he says. During a total solar eclipse, the day turns into night, and all of a sudden you can see the planets appear in the sky. You can also see the Sun’s wispy outer atmosphere, called the corona, the jets of light and rays shot into the surrounding universe. “It’s just the most breathtakingly beautiful, I daresay, glorious sight in the heavens,” Baron says.

So for me here in Central Time on August 21st I need to be out watching around 1:10pm. At 1:18pm it’ll be 87% which is the highest peak in our area.

The next one won’t be until 2024 so don’t miss out.

But then I DO get depressed. Not because of the questions. Because I work with people who not only voted for Trump but support him, whatever that means. They don’t like to think about things they don’t understand, or even acknowledge that there are such things. So they make up a fairy tale and blame negroes. (God, I’m amusing.)

t, i work with people who literally get insulted by questions if they don’t know the answer. I was in denial for a good long time about the whole Trump thing and now everyone is getting resigned and I’m imploding. I saw an article on FB where a woman was lamenting the stats of how many really stupid people are out there. i work with most of ‘em.

they didn’t expect him to win either. like him, they had no idea what came next. like him, they feel cornered and guilty. they are not pleasant to be around. like him, their answer to everything is just more of the campaign type bleating. “The Wall?!” are you fucking kidding me? how is this relevant?
then you’ll hear something about how jobs are being stolen. you’ll hear this from people who are either employed or don’t want to be.

i use this as a sounding board because if i put it on FB they’ll see and get fidgety.

My fave is when people say that it really is fake news. “You can’t believe everything you hear on TV, they’re just hyping the Russian crap.”
