    “If it’s me and your granny on bongos, it’s the Fall,” the singer Mark E. Smith, who peremptorily hired and fired dozens of members of the Fall, once said. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/22/arts/music/band-name-reunions.html

    Post what you're watching

    You see Apollo 11 yet? Shrill here. Kinda wonderful in the One Mississippi vein.

    As I may have helped pause this thread, a few shots from a recent Amsterdam trip to unpause. First two iPhone XR. Rest Fujifilm X-Pro2 with XF 35mm f/2.

    Tidal v. Qobuz?

    Qobuz streaming officially came to the US on Valentine's Day. Anyone else giving the 30 day free trial a try? Like the background text info on releases, etc., though that can get in the way as a player occasionally. Seems to have more releases per artist, though some major artists missing in comparison in Tidal, though that could be simply my preferences. Handles high resolution (24/96-24/192) differently (no MQA). Seems to dislike using the word "album."

    Merry Birthday Blessingx!

    Thanks everyone. Hope you’re all having a fine day with friends, family, holiday films, and/or Fairytale of New York & Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis on the headphones.

    If you get the Z6, make sure to get this Ikelite underwater housing (even if you never take it near water). It's gotta have special powers.
