Recently in our backyard… Video of the pond is by Lynda, including the very vocal bullfrogs heard throughout.

Fractured Rhythms (fun with Udio)

Once again I tasked Udio (www.udio.com) to create some “music”. The prompt I gave was simple: “a jaggy prog tour-de-force”. It gave me a couple of variations, I took one and then selected to extend it once, and then add an intro and an outro. Total time was around two minutes. I could have kept going, as two minutes is fairly concise for a “tour-de-force”, but the mind wanders. I’ve heard enough to be very, very afraid. Or maybe I’ve stopped caring at all, it’s hard to say…

Fractured Rhythms (A Jaggy Prog Tour-de-Force)

Lyrics
(also by Udio, I had nothing to do with any of this, I’m just Udio’s meat puppet)

Sharp and intense
Through tangled streams
A fractured beat
That bends and screams
Is all that I feel
(breaking the seal)

Disco in the Shire

“Move to the groove under Middle Earth Skies”

I asked the AI at Udio (www.udio.com) to create “a disco tribute to Lord of the Rings”.

It just went ahead and did it. No questions asked. No thought about whether bringing such a travesty into the world would drag us all down that tiniest bit more.

We’re all doomed…

Not My Monkeys

“Not my circus, not my monkeys” is said to be an old Polish proverb meaning, essentially, “None of my beeswax” or perhaps “that sounds like a ‘you’ problem”.

Magitour Mystic + Rigamarole

First two posts of 2024.

Magitour Mystic is a sliced and diced treatment of the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour album. Mostly unrecognizable, and kind of Revolution #9-ish. Not to all tastes, I’m guessing.

Rigamarole is a messy, complicated process that takes longer than it should.” Sounds about right.

Awakening From Tyranny

The title was suggested by ChatGPT. The prompt was “give me a list of proposed song titles containing the word “tyranny””.
