Accidentally made an awesome musically synced orbital Injection

So kinda my first post here, going to make an intro thread shortly but this was kinda exciting and I couldn't really wait. I was doing a stream last night and listening to music, and the song, Monody by TheFatRat came on right as I lauched a probe to go to the mun, and I started making some actions that were lined up with the song.

 

What do you guys think?

'kay, so for actual pointers -

1) enable crossfeed in the radial decouplers, make sure outer tanks have higher fuel priority (drain first) and start the central engine right off the pad. Separate the moment booster tanks are empty - you must watch fuel levels because with crossfeed the side engines will keep burning even with their tanks empty. (alternatively, instead of enabling crossfeed, use fuel pipes). That way you get a better TWR early on - main engine is providing boost instead of being dead weight.

2) much flatter ascent trajectory - air drag is much less of a problem than gravity drag - you want to gain much more horizontal speed sooner. 45 degrees tilt at 10km is one data point to look for; circularization burn should be less than 300m/s.

3) don't raise your initial orbit so much if you don't need to - results in higher orbital speed, and as result more efficient departure burn (Oberth effect.)

4) For operation in orbit you should use high-ISP, low-thrust engine. It looks like your orbital stage uses Reliant, which is a very lousy engine for use in space. Use Terrier, or at least Swivel if you don't have Terrier yet.

Like the video. The music is pretty ghastly though. What is it, one of those Peruvian flute bands you see outside a mall sometimes? 

Hahaha no, and thankfully there are no giant space guinea pigs will be brought about thanks to the valiant efforts of our flute bands.

It sounds like a heavily Autotuned Celine Dion ballad mixed into a panpipe homage to the Braveheart soundtrack.  Put into an industrial shredder, burned, composted and then forced to make a full, written apology to each of its victims' families before being sealed up in a barrel of sadness and abandoned as hazardous waste in the deepest, darkest and loneliest chasm of the Antarctic waters.

It'll grow on me I'm sure.
