We just finished watching the PBS Ken Burns Country Music documentary and enjoyed it immensely, way more than expected.  The wife (who was reluctant at first) described the episodes as “compelling.”

 

It was a reminder of the all too often link between artistic genius and excesses regarding alcohol, drugs, sex, etc. The world would be a poorer place without the suffering of artists from van Gogh to Van Halen.

these electronic keyboards can be fun.  

My toy is a RadioShack model. I particularly enjoy the percussion "tones".  If all you can do is tap your fingers, you're in business. Get a rhythm groove going. Then switch to a more note oriented instrument.

 

there are folks that believe drumming itself is healing. A sort of meditation, I guess

creative geniuses seem to be out of sync and struggle to cope with us....

I worked around a few artists at the lithography shop.  They are nuts.

 

I'll save you the trouble

... and that is coming from a guy that wears a sarong. Some of these folks are WAY out there.

Mornin' All

 

Start the day with a pot of Peruvian coffee, then we're making "cocktail".... 

  I have a purpose for the time being.    Having to make RSO for a friend.  cancer....  My job sucks at times.  I'm pretty sad. We do what we can.

 

watching 1/2 gallon of Everclear  infusion cook down to medicated goo

Doesn't heating Everclear to its boiling point boil off the alcohol content? That stuff is 190 proof here and tastes like grain alcohol... on crack.

that's the object. We are concentrating "hemp" oils the Everclear dissolved.  RSO is a folk remedy for cancer. We are taking a multifaceted attack to the problem. If nothing else, it relieves side effects of conventional treatment... radiation, chemo....

 

Everclear is a food safe solvent

Could you not use any (safe for human consumption) alcohol base as a solvent for this? Strong quality potato based Vodka comes to mind. Not the 'bottled under authority horse pi$$'  but the good strong Polish or Russian stuff.

 

Cheaper and also high proof depending on the maker.
