Techno music – soothes the sad soul ~ makes the heart glad

Have you ever heard of LSD, Slinky Wizard, or Feeling Weird by the Infinity Project? What I am listening to right now, is uplifting. LSD is from Hallucinogen, and has to be my favorite of all. This is music thAT makes my heart come back into a life filled rhythm. Another fav of mine is Animal Resonance, by Tb Factor, simply awesome.

I normally listen to more mellow music, because sometimes when I am in a tiff, that is how I bring myself back into focus. I had thought that listening to Techno and the like was somehow making me behave or think worse. Well today, after having been made to see that something I had done in good faith had turned on me, and not brought the resolution I had though it would, I put these tracks on and listened. It made me feel better, not evil!

I tell you, I imagine being on Highway 1 going south, in the middle of the night, the moon shining on the water on my right , LSD beating into my soul while I move at 100 miles an hour, yes that is a satisfying daydream indeed. I sometimes can actually feel my daydreams as if they are really happening, like physically. Weird huh?

Anyway, if you have one of the music download services, give the music I mentioned a try. First listen to LSD, give it a few times through, I promise you will love it. It is the best daydream * and driving* music ever 🙂

I have a pic in mind for this post, and as soon as I can find it, I will post it, until later peeps,play nice, give love, be happy…..


good days bad days

Today my son who serves on the USS Kitty Hawk in Japan leaves for a new tour out at sea. I am so proud of him, I always have been, but I must admit that I miss him allot. He is doing something most of us only dream about, serving our country, learning new things, seeing new lands and meeting new people. He really misses his girlfriend, who I might add is a doll. How many potential mother in laws can say that about their son or daughter in law to be? She is something, and very talented as well. She is in her first year at college, and is extremely bright. I think the world of her, and hope she knows that.

So that explains the bad days portion of my header, on to the good days part. I love when the skies are gray and full of clouds, winter type clouds. I feel more at peace then, not that I don’t like the blue skies, but in the spring and summer, that is all you see.In the fall and winter, the skies here are more expressive, more attractive in coloration. So to be sitting here at my desk, with these lovely skies of gray out my window, makes me happy. Right now, I am sitting here ( writing to you of course) and listening to my music. I have an extensive play list of music that I feel is pretty cool , unless you are talking to my son in japan, or my daughters. My girls think I am missing out not listening to the Killers and the like. My son feels I might have been abducted by aliens, and replaced with this model of me, as I was a firm rocker up until a couple of years ago.

I am not dead yet, just a bit harder of hearing maybe . One of the saddest days in my life was the first time I said to my kids, “turn that noise down!” I recall thinking as it came out of my mouth, “who is that speaking? cant be me, can it?” By the way, its true, you DO turn into your parents, no matter how hard you try, but its okay, you get to understand them more and more the older you get.

Well, back to my musical choices these days, right now Harold Budd is on my winamp. This man has such a streak of talent, his music is uncanny. I am listening to a song called Color, if you like piano and ethereal sounds, give this man a try. I suggest you pick up the album this song is on, Agua. Its haunting, yet fulfilling if one is a artistic person, or just in need of a muse pick me up.

I was glad to see how people have been coming to my post about Led Zeppelin, its really neat, though I wish someone would post a comment, so we can see how folks think. My daughter now asks which Nickelback CD would be the most integral to your survival on the island? I don’t think we should beat this dead horse anymore, but who knows, maybe this is a question closer to peoples hearts, maybe posting about Zeppelin just showed my age and drove the young crowd away????

how i beat the blues…

I am sitting here this morn trying to blow my brain up with blog information, how to become a successful blogger, writer, the whole shebang. On my stereo, which is hooked up to my computer thanks to my husband; is playing my most common play-list… Kevin Kendal, Kitaro, Ian Cameron Smith. Mellow, soul soothing strains. I tend to play what my mood needs to hear, not what my mood reflects. So if i am in a really bad moon, I might want to hear Metallicas’ Black Album ( which has its merits for a drug free mood stabilizer) but I will force my mood to accept the new age music as a way to stop the beast in its tracks. Today was no exception, I was not in a bad mood per say, but it was gearing up to be a bad day. I could feel it in my bones. I turned off the Winamp, and opened my Napster and hit the best thing for my soul, Jazz. Nothing makes me feel all is possible more than listening to

The album that I heard about a month ago and that got me into smooth jazz as a alternative to New Age music was one of hers called Life Less Ordinary. One song was all it took, I was totally hooked on her style. We are not talking Kenny G here, not to say he was/ is bad, he is wonderful too. But Mindi is as different from Kenny G, as night is to day. There is some kind of

There are other Jazz artists that I am coming to absolutly adore and I will write about them as I come across those that move me most. But to Mindi, thanks for helping me to keep my moods where they belong, and happy memories close to my heart and not forgotten.

I encourage you to give her a listen, if you don’t already know who she is. I plan on making Mindi Abair one of my mainstays in my music library.
