[M.M.X.I.V. 296/O.C.T.O.B.E.R. III-23] She Blinded Me With Science


How fortuitous that this song popped up as the eighth song of the day!  Today is 10/23, and this corresponds to the base and exponent in scientific notation of Avogadro’s number.  In particular, it is 6.02 x 10^23.  This is a ridiculously large number, but it is the number of particles in a mole of any substance.  Yes… today is Mole Day, so enjoy it, my fellow scientists!

[M.M.X.I.V. 295 / O.C.T.O.B.E.R. III-22] Parimal (Viaje Tantrico)

I heard this song on WNUR a few months ago, and the varying musical qualities of it really drew me in… it seems to have influences from all across the world.  So, I might as well give a brief post about my preference to world music.

(However, I can’t find an online stream of it other than on Spotify.  Title: “Parimal (Viaje Tantrico).  Artist: Subhira.  Album: Transubhiriano.)

[M.M.X.I.V. 294 / O.C.T.O.B.E.R. III-21] Be Water

It’s a very short post today:

A river is time–

Sometimes rushing, sometimes dammed,

Life flows–Be water.



Today is the two-hundred and ninety-fourth day of M.M.X.I.V.  That makes forty-two weeks.

Today is the twenty-first day of the third round of O.C.T.O.B.E.R.  That makes three weeks.

[M.M.X.I.V. 293/O.C.T.O.B.E.R. III-20] Two family weekends, eight photos

I got to see my full family last weekend, and my parents and one of my sisters this weekend.  I figured that some photos (eight of them) may speak louder than words, since I didn’t encode the music that I heard today.  So, here goes, along with captions.  They are approximately chronologically arranged.  (There are no pictures of the actual wedding, as I have not obtained any of them yet!)
