This is the cat currently named Care Bear. Friday, she was living in the kitten room at Treehouse. Today, she owns our house, though she prefers to hang in the family room.
Her co-adoptee, currently named Grendel, is too shy to be photographed. He’s either under the bed or in a back corner of the bedroom closet. Occasionally a nose pops into view. Update: See below. Grendel has appeared.]
This popped up on my random play list and it stopped me in my tracks. I love this song and this version, from 2013, is beautiful. It’s about birth, death, and Neal Cassady… like most Grateful Dead songs. (Lyrics & the backstory.)
Using the Amarok player, I’ve set up a dynamic list that finds songs with (Rating > 3 stars and ( (PlayCount = 0) OR (LastPlayDate MORE THAN 90 days) ).This gives me a nice, fresh mix of the 11,800+ tracks in my library. I had been an Amarok user since my early Linux days, but then they messed up the playlist functions and I switched to RhythmBox. Recently, RhytmBox became totally unreliable on my Fedora 23 system, so I switched back to Amarok. It’s a happy experience.
