I really like the weather today. It was raining, but not the cold and gloomy kind.

It's the kind that would discourage the early morning dog-walkers, but still managable without a umbrella. The occational refreshing splashes on ankles, the lack of pedestrians or cars, and the bright yet blurred sky all seem to signal that something big, mysterious, and out of the ordinary is waiting for you down the road.

Videos of Wendy Carlos playing were mesmerizing to watch. Electronic musicians of the analog age looked seriously cool with all the huge synthesizers, VU meters, and reel-to-reel tape recorders.
