Sounds of Sorrow  - original acoustic gusitar  - (needs lyrics/vocals)
I wrote this to express my sense of loss of when a close friend had to cut me off or risk losing her family's support (and her kids). It needs lyrics but I'm not the singer/songwriter type. The guitar is in an alternate tuning (D-modal aka DADGAD). I'm not showing the fingerings, I need to keep a few secrets.;-) 2018: Writing and releasing more music: https://soundcloud.com/user-228818482/tracks

Ask Alexa about Mandela effect, she gets flustered
Want you want is in the first part. I can think sometimes there’s a human behind the keyboard. I asked her again later and he said that what if the name for the Mandela effect changed and we didn’t notice?

Soulful improv Strumstick in a long hall #1 - "Kindness"
1992 Strumstick G-31 tuned alternate DCD with heavier strings. I simultaneously recorded with a usb condensor mic, however this audio is from the iphone which will be substituted at a later time for a higher quality version. I would like to thank @Christine_Stevens for sharing her "Minor Strumstick Chant" (which is amazing++) and the alternate tuning that allows minor scales to be used. By having both a normally tuned high string and the minor tuned 2nd string it gives me best of both worlds. I use the 2nd string for the "blue notes" and the 1rst string as rest notes and to resolve each phrase. I get a lot of comments that my music sounds like sitar, and that's not surprising since I both listen to and play one, however this is actually more like the ancient ancestor to the sitar, called the setar. Music starts at 0:30

Pregnant Dog Eating Grass Like a Cow
Tonka's temperature is 98.7F this morning. Yesterday mornings was 100.1 which is normal for a dog. She seems to be showing signs of discomfort and being in early labor. I'm guessing that she's nauseated and trying to trigger vomiting. She gave birth the next day to 8 puppies.

Fallout4 - Settlers unite to protest crowded conditions (funny glitch)
Weird bug. I set up a row of beds in Echo Lake Lumber and several times I found all of my settlers standing up on their beds. I have no idea how this happens.

Kitty Makeout Session
Short video of my two rescue cats, Guy Smiley and my newly arrived kitten Fekete, engaging in a mutual grooming session. This is the first time that they've done this that I know of. There's a problem with blue battery powered squeaker mouse toy near the end. Guy Smiley likes the treats however Fekete (the word "black" in Hungarian) doesn't care for them.

Stealth laundry room mining rig setup (part 1 of ??)
Has 220V outlet and plenty of room as long as I get an over-under washer dryer ($25/month to rent). Also has fiber optic which is rare in this area. The electric is submetered from building's commercial account so should be more affordable than residential rates. Edit: I was wondering on about what to do with the excess heat and thought about cutting a hole in the back wall so it get's sucked into the AC system, however, I have a dryer vent right there so why not just use that? I've already seen a quick-connect system for dryer hoses on another youtube howto video. BTW: the filter is just for fun. I'll put in a link the original version when I get a sec to find it;

Haunting 12-string open tuning - "Quaalude in the Stairwell"
Part Mozart, with some blues and middle eastern influence. Modified DADFAD tuning (D/d,A/a,D/d,x/F#,A/f#,D/a) played in Lydian mode (major aug 4th). No audio processing except eq. I have since discovered that turning the high string to a minor 3rd interval, D/b, allows me to play the same lead higher up. Sticking to the pentatonic notes on the lead strings avoids notes not in scale. I removed the treble G string which allows me to bend notes.

(Almost) Arrested for Eating a Snow Cone after Church for Looking Wrong
Encounter with Austin AISD Police on Sunday, Sept 30, 2018 after going to the controversial Celebration Life Church in Austin Texas. Q&A: Q: You were ordered to leave, why didn't you comply? A: I wanted to but was unable. Because I must balance to stay on the knee walker (scoter), it is physically impossible to push off with one foot without having both hands on the handlebars. Since this scooter didn't have a basket there was no way I could have actually left with the snow cone still in my hand. It would have been reasonable for the officer to have given me a few minutes to finish it. Q: Why were you asked to leave? A: The reason stated was that I was bothering the two church members (1M/1F) who were operating the snow cone trailer. I was very confused because the interaction I had with them was quite pleasant and without any issues. They even went out of their way to make a sugar-free one for me. If somebody could fix the rotation, post it as an unlisted video, and email me, that would be greatly appreciated. #OnPatreon https://patreon.com/user?u=15787943 New original guitar music released weekly: https://soundcloud.com/user-228818482/tracks

Horror show of clutter
A house of an outwardly obsessively neat person (NPD). This isn't a small apartment, actually it's the biggest one-bedroom I've ever seen - two level with garage. The last shot shows my belongings for which I was constantly harassed and evicted for (while couch surfing). Lesson learned. Living with a sociopath is not healthy! Please make a donation to the National Alliance of the Mentally Ill to help people like this and their families.
