Birds with piano

tcr! · 2 days ago

Audio (MP3): 20201127 - Birds with piano

Video (MP4): 20201127 - Birds with piano

If you need to relax after your Black Friday, please enjoy a little piano and birds in my bird bath. Being November in Illinois the birds won’t get to do this much longer.

I’ve been getting 3 kinds of woodpeckers going to my feeder then bluejays, and cards. I could watch all day. 💯

Yep me, too. I love just standing at my kitchen window spying on them.

So enjoyable, so relaxing! I even had a Robin not long ago hanging around

Comic birds happy together

tcr! tcr! · a day ago

I think the music I put together came out pretty well, and the video itself isn’t bad considering I shot it on my phone through the kitchen window while zooming in. 😊

And yay, your robin!

Slow Mo Milkweed

Video (MP4): 20201108 - Slow Mo Milkweed

On weekends when I don’t have Maggie I often pretend like I’m a cinematographer who knows how to play the piano.

I also had Milkweed seeds all over my face when I was done.

Rainy day bug ride

Video (MP4): 20201018 - Rainy day bug ride

In their downtime some people like to watch sports. Some people like to sew. Some people like to forage for frogs while frolicking in the forest. I like to pretend I’m a medieval composer while Maggie puts on her cinematographer cap and we’re driving around town in the sprinkling rain.

The soundtrack and camera work makes me feel like I’m watching one of those old timey film reels. Well done you two. 😎👍

Thanks! I tried to run a stabilizer on the video but it made little difference. So I just sped up the playback 🐇

The planes are flying this morning

20201003 - The planes are flying this morning - MP4

When recording a podcast I have to be in the right state of mind. It’s a performance of sorts.m and I do my best to recapture or get into the emotional headspace of what I originally wrote.

But it’s frustratingly hard when I’m being distracted by the gotdam planes.

Having a party of one

20200818 Having a party of one

Not long ago I was in the 7-Eleven in Geneva. There was maybe three other people waiting to pay. One of the guys was five-ish years younger than me and barely-stand-up drunk. He was having a party of one, talking to himself, and talking to the other people even if they were doing their best to: not encourage him. To ignore him. And wait out his staggering around non-sense. Like when you tough out a deep cleaning at the dentist.

7-Eleven had their ambient classic rock playing over the ceiling speakers and the drunk dude turned around and asked the guy in front of me, “Who sings this song? Damn, this is good. I can’t remember what they’re called.” The second guy is like, “I don’t know who sings it” in all out pretty much disgust with drunk dude.

I was softly clanging around on the MIDI keyboard the other night and came up with a couple of melodies. I couldn’t really find any words to go with them so I decided to look up what was in the public domain.

The guy that wrote/performed the show was Arch Oboler. Laying in bed, smoking cigs, and writing Lights Out radio in his head. I can relate 😊

Brown liguid in clear cup.

No, serious, it didn’t look like coffee and I wondered if you drank cherry cokes or something.

tcr! tcr! · May 14, 2020 at 4:37 pm

Oh… I thought you were talking about something in the audio. It’s just iced tea with sugar and spoon.

I knew this guy once. Well, I still kinda sorta know him now but we’re not really friends. I’ll call him Tim even though his name wasn’t Tim.

Why am I thinking about Tim on this 4th of June? Because these awful hostilities would come out of his mouth. And sometimes they were directed at me and sometimes they weren’t. Sometimes I could tell their direction and sometimes I couldn’t.

Driving to work this morning I was letting my minder wander, just absentmindedly thinking about random stuff. As I do. And today I was thinking that I used to drop a lot of hints. Boxes of styrofoam peanuts without anything tangible inside.
