    I have been using the channel Music Choice: Soundscapes as background music for dates, for over five years now. More and more I find myself turning to Soundscapes while just relaxing, just to cut the noise.

    I don't like everything they run but I do like most of it. And the women I date usually end up getting hooked on it as well. I'm always open to playing whatever they like and I constantly offer to turn on anything from jazz to EDM. But once they hear a bit of Soundscapes, they usually want to keep it there.

    They also run a continuous stream of highly inspirational or insightful quotes from people of note. They can be quite engaging to just sit and read as the music plays. More than a few times this has happened on dates. They suck you in! :D

    Their playlist seems to be theme driven. Some nights have the sound of music from Asia, with lots of wood flute, for example. Other nights it can range from a bit of an Irish sound, to Enya, or even space-themed songs.

    One song that surprised me is called Peace on Saturn. It has a country sound, complete with the beat of horse hooves and a slide guitar, which is strange given that the subject is Saturn. LOL. But for some reason, it works. Makes me laugh every time!

    A few of the quotes running

    He who knows patience knows peace

    Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude

    Happiness can only exist in acceptance.

    Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length

    It's in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.

    It is not only what we do, but what we don't do, for which we are accountable.

    And on, and on, and on... Good stuff.

    As we finally departed the plane in Lima, Peru - a magical place - this song was playing. Whenever I hear it I get the feeling of Peru again.

    If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
    If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
    If you are at peace, you are living in the present

    Wow! I remember hearing that song years ago when I got hussled by some woman, at 8 ball pool. What a coincidence!

    But if we are going to expand the meaning of mood music, when I was crawling out of a very dark hole, this became my mantra. I'd listen and watch over and over to get my head in the right place.



    And on the flip side, if I really just need to feel happy...

    Mantovani still rules for me. No matter how depressed I get, playing Mantovani will lift my spirits after a little while. And if I'm in a good mood, Mantovani can make it even better. The easy listening channel on the satellite TV plays a lot of Mantovani, I noticed, don't know if Soundscapes does. This isn't even his best album, but still a good one.

    I knew you sounded familiar!
    I do remember you.
    You were the guy who explained to me that, the initial velocity of ball A is V1A. After impact, ball A moves at velocity V2A in the direction shown, and ball B moves at velocity V2B in the direction shown.

    I never forgot that.
