Fall Rain (The Way of the World)

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.

This picture is from November, but aptly sums up the weather in Seattle lately.  Going through the archives recently I came across it.  I really like this one.  The line of trees on the right-hand side moves towards the car, while the straightness of the antenna contrasts with the wind-blown tree behind the car.  The rain had died off at this point, leaving the sky with great atmosphere.

In other news, the computer situation appears to be resolved, so expect some posts.  It is time to get productive on multiple fronts again after taking a few days off.  During this time, I realized I get moody and more prone to bleak, angry thoughts if I am not creating. Still, I needed to step back to think properly about the next steps to take.  Things are a bit clearer now.  I need to jump back into Photoshop, but I have some unedited photos I feel confident enough in sharing.
