What’s Happening: Week of December 24, 2018

Tuesday in the U. S. A., we’ll celebrate Christmas. I want to wish everyone who does celebrate it a happy one. I also want to offer seasons’ greetings to those who celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Festivus (for the rest of us). Whatever and however you choose to celebrate, even if it’s only another Tuesday, may it be a joyful one for you.

This week I’m featuring the last of my seasonal-themed stock music items for the year. It’s Auld Lang Syne (Gospel Blues), a slightly different take on the traditional New Year’s Eve tune.

It’s also available in a loopable version.

I’m continuing to work on new stock music that I hope to make available through Pond5 early in the new year. I’ve put together another ‘ambient relaxation loop’ item and another ‘meditation drone’ item for my planned meditation and relaxation collection that I discussed last week. I’ve also put together a new intro, which I call ‘high energy intro’ – it has :30, :15, looped and bumper-stinger versions. Here’s a preview:

As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’m doing research for a book I hope to publish on the Dayton Triangles professional American football team on or before the 100th anniversary of the first National Football League game which they played in on October 3, 2020. This year (2018) is the 100th anniversary of the 1918 season in which the Triangles were the consensus Ohio League champions, although under dubious circumstances. I spent some time last week compiling notes from that season (as will as 1915-17), and it makes for quite a fascinating story. Therefore, I plan to publish another of my draft excerpts to document the highlights (and low spots) of that season, which I’m calling ‘The Year of the Asterisk’. I throw a link to the post on Twitter once it’s finished, and I hope you’ll check it out.

So, happy holiday! May your days be merry and bright, and may all your plans be nefarious.
