Addiction 2021.1

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I was descending on 84, which is a nice, not too technical but still twisty descent. I caught up to a car, and stayed behind them the whole way down. Right at the bottom the car suddenly whips over onto a turnout, the passenger door flies open and the passenger leans out and barfs.

As a practical matter, if I want to listen to a particular song I usually just pull it up @ YouTube. Digital convenience.

For us, it was "Night At The Zoo", which was all good fun, till we tried to sleep, with various roars and hoots and the goddam peacocks "HooWAH, hooWAH"-ing all goddam night.

I think it's historically been the case that albums only had one to three good songs. But as far as music industry evolution goes, I think the biggest shift happened around 2000 when .mp3 players became a thing.

Shave report - (Velo Vol)

Face and head, single pass each, WTG, obv.
Pre-shave: none - I'm out
Shaving cream: Proraso Red (sandalwood - still on the winter scent)
Brush: synthetic badger hair (reduced badger suffering footprint, still great results)
Razor: RazorRock GameChanger .68P
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue. Wonderful blades - definitely among my favorites. 5th full shave with this particular blade - still smooth and sharp with no signs of slowing down.
Aftershave: Proraso Red
Alum Block: N/A - no nicks or weepers

There are many albums I just can't stand to NOT listen to the whole thing at one sitting.

As for youtubes, the best ones are usually recordings of records. I think you'll love this one. Low quality pressing from a tiny indy label, recorded with no filters/EQ/nothin, just record to the computer and straight up to the youtube.

I listened to Native American music most of one day driving back from Wenatchee:

https://nezpercesystems.com/kiye-radio/

Kinda reminded me of driving US 666 up in northern AZ back in the day, driving across the desert listening to the Native American station. The AZ experience was a little more intense though; they had very few DJ interruptions, and the practically non-stop pow-wow tunes would put you in a trance as you stared out at the 2-lane blacktop stretching out before you.

Very nice - the crackling just makes ya feel good!

I used to post a TON of songs on youtube, but many got taken down. Then I found if I omitted the artist's name, most of them wouldn't get yanked.

I think I may have been drinking when I did this one. Sounds like I dropped the needle with my bare hands instead of using the lever.

If you want to play just one song you have to load up giant disc, and pinpoint the spot on the record to put the needle, which will probably take several tries. Repeat process if you want to listen again

Meanwhile, with digital you just plop in the disc, if one is even needed, push a couple buttons and you're listening to crisp, superior sound, and can FF, Rewind, Repeat as your heart desires with a push of the button.
. . . . BUT you have sacrificed something, that is, listening to the piece as best it could be. You settled for convenience, for second best. But what the heck, you cant miss what you never had, amiright?

Here TV station 8.5 is audio from a local NPR station that plays classical, and they run a slideshow featuring nature photos of the desert.
