These musicians and songs were representative of some of the early musical influences that provided me with much joy and influenced my listening and playing habits. Miles Davis had a great impact on most of the musicians and music in this list, but also some great British prog/fusion players too. Here is my Song list:
So I've been on an extended break here at this site...but not in life. Been very busy with multiple New Years and other assorted holidays. Podcast is still moving along with new part-time co-host Stephen Liu (due to EMBA program) and continuing to have fun with A.Connector +100 especially foraying into new tech, clean energy, Taiwan participation in these sectors, photography and the rest of life! Will do another solo A.Connector after I finish this post. You can find out more details about what's been going on there.
I know I've been kind fo quiet here and also on my A.Connector podcast.. I'm actually going back to my old Getting a Leg Up podcast roots and doing podcasts with music in them. i'll still do some interview based podcasts but just haven't been feeling it lately and a number of the people I was interested in getting on seemed all to vaporize... LOL. I guess many people not i "the media." feel awkward about being on video or audio for posterity's sake.
On the business front I have a new project I'm working on with a cool friend that has a lot of good business management background, seems pretty Zen-the all purpose #tag for someone that is kind of chill and centered, and very intelligent and easy to talk to. Have a Zoom meeting tomorrow,. We actually met for coffee the other day which was great. We live at different ends of town. So I suggested meeting virtually because it's time saving... Zoom is different when you don't have to do it but feel like it or recognize how it's nice when you are freely choosing to do so.
Here in Taiwan covid still pretty well contained although there has been a recent incident in Northern Taiwan. A friend of mine is almost done with his fourth go at quarantining-glad to let him have that record.
Glad that the political news in the US a little duller these days-I'm sure that is killing MSM and they're trying their hardest to come up with other riveting news to keep their money making machine going. Wall Street got kind of interesting with short squeeze story and major tremor in the markets yesterday.
Stay tuned for new podcast release probably tomorrow and new business project development as I have noteworthy info to report.
