    What are you Grilling now?

    First attempt at a brisket. 11 hour cook (3 hours in magic pink paper), 5 hours of rest in the cooler. Not perfect but pretty damn tasty!

    Happy Birthday Shelly!

    Thanks guys! The day started out great - Yumi paid for me to get a 90 minute massage! Going out tonight to try out a new restaurant with some friends and it's whiskey Wednesday there.

    RIP someone or another

    I seem to have missed that. I loved a League of their own - impressive director. RIP Penny Marshall!

    500 dollars of shininess. 😬 Yumi had to work until 11pm last night so it was set up when she got home. Hopefully she'll get some time to play it tonight before we leave for Cal/Col. Thanks for the recommendation. The Kawai dealer here was awesome and great to work with.

    Kawai CA78 - just got it set up yesterday. This thing is heavy but we got it to the third floor. It’s leaps and bounds better than my old Casio PS20.

    Digital pianos

    OK, went to try out some Yamahas yesterday and went to the Kawai showroom today. Wasn't really wowed by any of the Yamahas. The feel of the keys on the Kawai CA 78/98 (GF II) were great. Although the sound out of the 98 was nicer, I might go for the 78 just based on cost. Unfortunately, they didn't have any CA58 or MP11SE to try. From what I have read, the GF II are slightly better than the action on the 58 or MP11. Now, I just need to figure out if I want to fork out an extra 500 to get the shiny black vs the matte/satin black. Shiny...

    I was looking at the Kawaii CA58 and it seems pretty awesome. What is a good sturdy sound for the MP11? No speakers on the MP11, what type of speakers to use, where to place them? How does the MP11 compare to the Roland FP-90 (the FP-800 doesn't seem to be around anymore).

    No room for real piano or keeping it in tune and this will be on the third floor.
