Good tunes, sunny days

IMG_8653Well today was a beautiful day! So I could not stay inside, hopped on the bike plugged the iPod in slapped on the brain bucket and head down the hill to the viking ship and hung a right!

Speaking of music, I have been a long time listener to Eve-Radio, and it seems the more i listen to them the broader my music tastes gets. Eve-Radio is not a commercial radio station, it is a all volunteer station run on the web. So the DJ are literally scattered around the world and do there show from where ever they are. They maintain a In-game chat channel where listeners can chat with the DJ's. This is the future of radio, the radio station becomes a 2 way communication channel and the shows are richer because of it. Anyway back to the music, and less about the social aspects. I heard this song on there the other day All Summer Long and I loved it. So I went looking for it and downloaded it from iTunes. Then I went looking for some of the artists other works. I HATED them all, the artist btw is Kid Rock, if you don't know him he is into very hard metal rock and rap.

But I now have a new song on my iPod that I would never have found if it wasn't for a internet radio station that broadcasts everything, and not just the top 40 charts.

But back to the biking, the road led along the coast of the bay and then into a more industrial area.

It got allot less interesting, but I had found out what was this direction. Also road by a movie theater that I had been to, but didn't know where it was :) Stopped at a little turn out where they had a Metal plate on a post with a compass rose, and along the edges they had landmarks in relieve, and all the mountains, from the center out was lines that named all the peaks, I recognized a few. It was cool!

I turned around at that point and headed back towards the office to do a bit of work before going to see Hell Boy 2 at Haskalabio (it is a movie theater). And there was a section of the sea wall, why is it a sea wall when it isn't on a sea?, were all the rocks where super smooth.

It was need they must have taken the rocks from the ocean at some point.

Anyway after work and heading home this is the end of a day of adventure, and listening to good music all day.

OK, two comments on this post:

1. 'All Summer Long' is a top 40 song here. It's getting an annoying amount of play on pretty much all the radio stations here. Honestly, I don't much like it, or any of the rest of his work. Although, if you can find it, Kid Rock did a duet with Sherryl Crow that I do like...

2. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Sea Wall is on the edge of the sea... That makes it a sea wall because it's job is to keep the sea on the sea side, and off the trail on the land side. Head down there on a stormy day. You'll see what I mean. Might also explain why the stones look like they have been rounded by the ocean. :-)

The Section of really smooth rocks is about 15 feet long and is only the rocks on the land side.

I suspect the hand of man in there positioning :)


the song is starting to wear on me also and might get tossed from my favorites soon :)
