Awesome Earth’s Wind Interactive Map

I have been loving this site; shows when the weather systems are coming into the area and how they get started out in the Pacific! It’s interactive too, just click on the word “Earth” or drag your mouse around on it!  Look at surface winds or choose your height if you prefer upper air disturbances!

What is great is I can look at this one view and know when the storm chasing will likely be good and non-existent.  Gives me a really quick look at the next 4-5 days, and helps me determine when further research is necessary!

Multicast on Sleeping Pills OST

Back over 10 years ago a local movie company Kinotonik produced this awesome 35mm underground film Sleeping Pills.  Featured in the soundtrack are several Obliq Recordings tunes.  The movie’s Director Michael Lauter has decided to put a REDUX version out on HD Bluray format!

This is an Indiegogo funding project, so jump out there and support it! One neat thing about this movie is it was filmed in many unique Colorado architectural facilities that have since been destroyed! This film is preserving these interesting Colorado relics!

Looking forward to finally having a copy of this great movie to watch again and hearing our music on a Bluray HD movie!

New Year’s Mead in the Fermenter

Jan 1, 2014.

Just pitched the yeast in a new year’s mead. This one will be the same as my last one, Orange Cinnamon Vanilla Sweet Mead. Incredible stuff! I’ll put the spices in after the primary fermentation settles down.

4 Gallons Water
16-18 pounds honey (10-12 Dark Unfiltered Larkspur + 6 Light Ft. Lupton)
1/2 tsp Yeast Energizer Blend (Wyeast)
1 packet Red Star Premier Cuvee Active Dry Wine Yeast

OG: 1107 (Jan 1, 2014)
SG:  1050 (Feb 9, 2014)

Update:  Feb 9, 2014.

Racked the Mead and added the spices.  I tried it without the spices, it is REALLY good!  I can’t wait!  Here are the added spices:

7 Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks
4 Madagascar Vanilla Beans (may need more, I used 5 last time)
8 Oranges Zested

2014 Mead

Here are the ingredients making it a Metheglin

The second batch of mead used the yeast from the first batch; hopefully that will get it going quicker.  So far just honey and water.

15 lbs Kirkland Clover Honey (USA and Argentina, isn’t as dark as Larkspur honey is)
4 Gallons Water

OG: 1114 (Feb 9th, 2014)

Stay tuned….
