2016.01.11 – POD – National Milk Day


2016.01.11 – National Milk Day

Featuring Moo Moo Cow by Seamonkey

Today is National Milk Day. Personally, I stick with the soy stuff for anything other than baking and hot cocoa. However, milk is, in my opinion, at as American as apple pie. Especially since apple pie is best with a healthy scoop of ice cream.

If you wish te celebrate it by more than just downing a glass of the liquid.  Family Crafts has a list of activities.

2016.01.06 – POD – Technology Day – DJ Trackstyle -Ambientasia


2016.01.06 – Technology Day

Featuring Ambientasia by DJ Trackstyle

Today is National Technology Day. Personally, I have a serious love-hate relationship with technology. I love to try to use it but I hate fighting with my old PCs to make them work.

DJ TrackstyleI also love applied technology when it comes to music. I am not one of those who feel that synth music is soulless. I have been around synthesizers since the days of monophonic patch cord Moogs. I still have a DX7 sitting my studio and love electronic music.

It seemed appropriate to go with a synth song today. I found this artist way back in the day at the now non-existent Podsafe Music Network. I am going to spin Ambientasia by DJ Trackstyle

While most of the links in my notes are now useless, a few Google searches showed me that the DJ is still out there. You can find DJ Trackstyle at the links below.

Thanks for listening and downloading. Please remember to support the indie musicians.

2016.01.04 – POD – Blue Monday – I Don’t Want to Work Today by Beatnik Turtle


2016.01.04 – POD – Blue Monday, The Most Depressing Day of the Year

Featureing I Don’t Want to Work Today Music of Beatnik Turtle

Today is the first Monday of 2016 and it is, allegedly, the most depressing day of the year. This unofficial holiday is called Blue Monday. This day is celebrated annually on the first Monday of each year unless New Year’s Day happens to fall on a Monday.

However, one should note that there is no evidence that it actually the most depressing day. In fact, there is debate as to whether it should be the second or third Monday of January.

On this date in 1892 John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born. Most know him as, J.R.R Tolkien, the creator of Middle Earth, Gollum, and Bilbo Baggins. An alternate world fabulously crafted, spinning tales, an adventure that has entertained generation. The Hobbit has been selling books since 1937. The legendary works have become movies, inspired games and music.

Today, those who wish to honor Professor Tolkien, as asked by The Tolkien Society, will stand and offer a toast by saying “The professor!” at 9 o’clock today. The society also has a page where you can find out where others are toasting and to let others know where you will toast.

Since today is a day to toast the creator of hobbits, I thought Don’t Go Drinking with Hobbits by Marc Gunn would be a fitting song to close with. You can find Marc at the links below.

Also of note, there is another day associated with J.R.R. Tolkien. That is “Tolkien Reading Day“, annually on March 25th. Fans are encouraged to get together and read their favorite Tolkien passages.
