+David Bradley​​ your lost-to-the-weather is a great hit. It is really thick with rhythm and your lyrics were very timely. I simply loved listening to it several times. It is definitely a keeper. I hope you had as much fun making it as I did hearing it. Great work.

Something for the Songs section of Songs, Snaps, Science. If you're at all into Floyd, Rush, Bowie you might spot some of the influences in this uber-proggy bit of existential angst about that never-turning tide that is death...yeah, it's a happy-go-lucky holiday song! Woop!

http://www.sciencebase.com/science-blog/the-tide-that-never-turns-a-song.html

“…cool, melancholic rock number with an urgent beat and predatory electric guitar waiting to move in; the change in tempo depicting the power of the sea. This contrasts well with the acoustic guitar which, all the while, holds on to the narrator’s idea of life’s sad thread. The echoes and whispers add drama and tension...a theatrical number which holds on to the listener like a limpet to granite rock.”

I have a heavy heart. My candidate lost. The angry U.S. Middle class was angry at 8 years of no action on part of legislative branches then blamed President Obama. Money can buy you a lot of things. Heaven help us.

Looks like the hack was a lot bigger than Yahoo let on...possibly 1 to 3 billion accounts, not 500m

businessinsider.in - A Yahoo insider believes the hacked database could really be over 1 billion user accounts
