Has anyone literally played today's Google Doodle?  Click on the play button to load sounds.  Then you can create a composition!  There is also a visual element which is more than just music notation (I think.)  Today Google celebrates Oskar Fischinger's 117th Birthday.  I did not know anything about him but now I know a little. 

Today is my Monday.  This week I will have two Fridays because I work six days before I reach my weekend.  This (or longer stretches) happen because I'm Open Time or Vacation Relief.  So my schedule will match that of someone on vacation.  Sadly, my co-workers are not considerate enough to schedule their vacations with my days off in mind.  Occasionally, I will have a week where I only work two or three days before my weekend starts again.  I have one of those coming up next month and I may forgo the pay and see if someone will take my shift so I can have six days in a row off work.  :D
I no longer long for the old view!

What's to discuss, old friend?

I have a ton of work to do and don't feel like doing any of it whatsoever.

What else is new?

We are going to do a tour of the Highlands when we are in the UK this fall. 🚌 📆🏰

I fiddled with it a little during the night, but just went back and did more. Random clicks generate surprisingly beautiful little melodies. I'll have to read up on the mechanics, because it's a remarkably good way of making music without actually knowing anything about music.

This should be a permanent link to the doodle and the accompanying article.

I made a surprisingly good composition.  I have never studied music.

It has been a long week.  17 Year 8 reports left to write this weekend and then reports are done for the year.  Not long until the summer break, which will be most welcome!
