Fall Rain (The Way of the World)

Posted in Art, Funk, Music, Photos with tags , , , , , , on September 17, 2010 by trapperKeeper

I’ve been talking about putting mixes together for a while.  Today, while I was working on some other tasks, I threw together a play list inspired by the rain and That’s the Way of the World (1975), a frustrating, but enjoyable film if you’re a fan of Earth Wind & Fire, Harvey Keitel, and diatribes against the music industry and commercial perversion of art.  My music collection is massive and only gets bigger, even as it gets trimmed, so I have no reason not to put more together besides sheer laziness.  Today’s didn’t take too long to put together and repetition increases efficiency.  When I get more time, I’ll start doing more than just throwing tracks together.  But with all the other things on my plate, it might be a bit before I’ll before I get too much into the audio.  Photography and video come first, but it is nice to take a music break.  Anyhow, you can check the mix out at:

  It is a funky, soulful mix with a touch of spaciness.  Enjoy, or don’t.

Without homo sapiens, there is no superstition, or baseball.  Superstitions exist to help humanity explain the unknown and provide comfort.  Rituals, whether ones passed down from ancient times or personally created, give us the illusion that we can impact events through action inspired by faith.  Belief in this illusion can result in breakthroughs in this realm.  Success is by no means guaranteed, but the endeavor can be embarked upon with greater confidence, thus improving the odds of success.  Therefore, it is easy to understand why baseball, like most athletics, is saturated in superstition.  While attending the Tiger games in Seattle, we noticed Gene Lamont has a strange third base routine.
