Re-enactment of the 1673 Jolliet Marquette Expedition
duodec shared a link said3
I’m posting this for an acquaintance of mine who is working towards this re-enactment starting mid May. The website is jollietmarquette350.com and I’m just spreading the word for him.
My understanding is this is being done piecemeal; joining doesn’t mean having to do the whole expedition, you can do just one segment, and they will be road-tripping to start points and rowing to the places the expedition stopped, and camping there.
So if any of you enjoy, and have some level of skill in camping, rowing a canoe, play violin, mandolin, or guitar, speak passable French or perhaps are a Jesuit priest who might like to participate for a few days, please take a look.

Do then need an Otamatone player?
@sammydog01 Does your playing induce quavers among the audience?
@sammydog01 Thank you for reminding me that this thing exists!
(I’d seen it before — not in real life — but didn’t remember the name of it, so I had to look it up.)
@phendrick Is cringing like quavering?
@sammydog01 Maybe physiologically, but not musically.

And Quaver is A Thing (an app, apparently for the ADHD or compulsive types IMHO)
Gets more and more frenetic! Go later on the timeline. NSFW!
(I disclaim the cover art and the language!)
And peripherally, there is this
which could benefit a lot of meh people (and even some Meh people!)
@sammydog01 @xobzoo I was trying to be punny in my first reply. According to WikiP, the shape is akin to that of a quaver:
Looks like fun!
@sammydog01 @xobzoo If it were set up to take an 18650 instead of AAAs, I might get one.
TDIL. Thanks, SD.
This is a (much) lower-tech version of a theramin.
A lot of fun videos at A’zon showing these things off.
