SpaceX second launch of the week

I just never get tired of mentioning the growing success of SpaceX.  On October 11 they had yet another successful satellite launch.  This launch featured the re-use of a Falcon 9 first stage and the successful landing of that first stage booster so it can be used again.  This mission marked the 18th time SpaceX successfully recovered a Falcon 9 booster.

Anyway, here is the video if you want to see the lift-off, the booster landing and the deployment of the satellite.

Free Music! Projekt! Bandcamp! Darkwave!

It’s Saturday.  Why not treat yourself to some free music?  Today’s selection: The Collection, by Black Tape for a Blue Girl. This album is a collection of works by Black Tape for a Blue Girl, a Darkwave band out of Portland, Oregon.

The band was formed by Sam Rosenthal, who also founded Projekt Records.  Projekt Records is one of many, many labels that can be found on the amazing Bandcamp.com website.  So, downloading this album will help introduce you to (possibly) Darkwave music, Projekt Records, and Bandcamp.  What a fabulous trifecta!  And yes, the album is really free, but you will notice the chance to pay what you want (which includes paying nothing) – may I suggest at least leaving a tip?  Totally up to you, no judgement.  I use PayPal there all the time, but that isn’t the only payment method available.

Be sure to browse around while you’re visiting Bandcamp.  Look around by band, album, or song, or best yet by genre.  I have found so much to love there.  Want to see the music I have acquired there, or have on my wish list? You can even see the bands and record labels I am following.

Anyway, why not get something fresh and new today?  Do your ears a favor.
