    Ye Macce Threade

    I was listening to music from my 2011 MacBook (from my Alessandro MS-1 out of the headphone jack) – I turned the volume up one click (to 4 out of 16) on a short pop music track and it nearly fried my ears. Don't underestimate the volume level coming out of modern pop music – going to give my ears a break until tomorrow. 😖 I think I'll turn the iTunes volume down to 1/2 to reduce loudness from now on.

    HDTV Suggestions

    After living with one for a week, I would say the Sony OLED beats out the equivalent LG in every way but the operating system. Android is such a clunky piece of shit for a TV...or phone. 🙂 The weird speakers built into the A9F are excellent for TV speakers.

    https://www.factmag.com/2019/06/24/autechre-warp-tapes-89-93-for-free/ Oh snap. '89-93 is the era when Ae made music that I actually liked. Well, to be fair, they did decent stuff through 1995. In any case, that's some prime vintage material they're giving away. For some reason, the Fact mag link is giving me trouble, so I had to go here: https://www.residentadvisor.net/news/43993 File is 1.1 GB on Wet Trans Fur.

    I saw this when it came out a while ago and still remember it well. I liked the darkness and the “true detective”-like mood. But much darker and sometimes just down right odd. Specially that scene on the video above. : - )

    Been to my local watch repairer to try thinner spring bars with those end links, and the alligator strap didn’t even come close to fitting, he then removed those end links and tried just the thinner spring bars and the strap was still catching on the watch leaving a mark, so I had him put the bracelet back on. Like Sam said the Rolex bracelet is comfortable so it won’t be coming off anymore. As I’ve previously mentioned, I am eventually getting a Cellini Rhodium dial, and when the time comes I’ll have that alligator strap fitted.

    Yeah, that was kinda a rhetorical question.

    Okay, now mid-way through Too Old To Die Young (Prime). THIS IS SOMETHING SPECIAL. Is it meandering, indulgent, and too violent? Yep. Can I sell it to you as great? I'm still not sure. But if you can put up with its vices, do the practically exhausting work to meet halfway, and float on its language and tension, it's an exciting ride to watch an artist create (and only one will take you here). Like movies (which each of these 60-90 minute structured episodes pretty much are), television is such a collaborative medium, it's exciting to see an actual personality surface. Many critics have issues with this series. I don't blame them. I also don't think there are many television achievements this grand, even in this new golden age we're in. It's pretty dark though. Be prepared.

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Ulysses, On Safari yet another SMOD find, but this is hippie dippy psychedelic instead. Listen to this song from their previous album: https://ulyssesgb.bandcamp.com/track/song-that-has-to-be-sung (...and then listen to the entirety of On Safari ) Previous was also retro psych rock, too, with a serious Jeff Lynne fetish, and I dig. https://aurablaze.bandcamp.com/

    So is it the best album of 2014 or of 2019?

    They suck. They probably have the indexes and constraints turned on while inserting and committing one row at a time.

    Watch looks very nice, Dave. Wore my OP all day in beach and sand. Can't speak enough to how comfortable it wears with the oyster bracelet and how comfortable I felt taking into the sea knowing it was going to be perfectly fine under water. Love this watch for all its simplicity, elegance and simple form / function. It's just a great all a-rounder. HS

    Went to the place today for that alligator strap and had it fitted there. I like the strap a lot and it’s very well made, although I’m not so keen on the deployant buckle so think I’ll have a buckle I’ve spare fitted locally. While there I asked the guy to use the Rolex spring bars, which meant those end link had to be removed, I’m happy with that though because it looks better without, problem is those Rolex spring bars must be too thick because the strap is catching on the watch and leaving a mark, so tomorrow I’ll see about using thinner spring bars. Here are some photos with one showing the mark.

    Damn, dude. Oliver Lieb just put the entirety of his 2014 album Inside Voices up on YouTube: Even in YT quality, this thing is worth a listen if one is remotely interested in minimal, ambient IDM etc. OL is one of the most consistent producers in all things electronic. He's had a stellar track record since his first release in 1989. Mostly he produces dancefloor oriented techno, which managed to be interesting enough that one might want to actually listen to it in a setting outside of the nightclub. 5 years ago he decided he wanted to produce a piece of art that had nothing to do with club culture and boy did he ever.
