  1. Ghosts of West Virginia. Maybe the best Steve Earle album since The Mountain.
  2. ^ And the also have refurbs to save a bit. It's one of those I came across at https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/audio-interfaces/ci/22903
  3. Let us know when you get to the prequel.
  4. I don't have an answer for you so should probably keep quiet, but there are devices from IK Multimedia, Apogee, etc. for getting stereo (in some cases selling mono or stereo versions) into iOS over lightning, so that part seems possible. Trick I suppose is the conversion and input hardware.
  5. Until Saturday check out these dudes. Anyone who has read McCarthy's The Road try to make it 10 minutes. I dare you. "Very poorly written."
  6. Don’t see a good place to stick this under speakers so placing here. Christopher Stringer worked on many of Apple’s biggest hits. Now, he’s getting ready to release a new series of smart speakers that could compete with Apple HomePod and Sonos. https://www.fastcompany.com/90508816/ex-apple-designer-to-launch-a-product-that-competes-with-apple-itself?partner=rss&utm_campaign=rss+fastcompany&utm_content=rss&utm_medium=feed&utm_source=rss
  7. A short 12 minute piece on creativity, Keith Jarrett, and Brian Eno. https://www.npr.org/transcripts/719557642
  8. Annie Glenn, Champion of Those With Speech Disorders and Wife of John Glenn, Dies at 100 https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/19/us/annie-glenn-champion-of-those-with-speech-disorders-dies-at-100.html?referringSource=articleShare
  9. ^ "Much better" is kinda a pretty fucking low bar. _________________________________________ Okay, this is what I'll be watching tomorrow... Moby Dick, San Francisco Opera, Saturday May 23, starting at 10am Pacific (or Sunday, May 24, at 11:59pm Pacific). FREE. 2 hr. and 22 min. seem long? You gonna read the novel? WHO'S IN? https://sfopera.com/opera-is-on/streaming/ The Whaling ship Pequod has been at sea for one week Below deck, the harpooner Queequeg prays and wakes Greenhorn, a loner new to whaling. Dawn breaks and while the crew raises the ship’s sails, Starbuck, Stubb, and Flask discuss Ahab, whom no one has seen since the ship left Nantucket. Ahab appears and tells the crew of Moby Dick, the white whale that took off one of his legs. He nails a gold doubloon to the mast and promises it to the man who first sights the whale. This is the real rea- son they have sailed, he explains: to destroy this one whale. His rous- ing call of “Death to Moby Dick!” excites everyone but the first mate, Starbuck. To no avail, he confronts Ahab about what he sees as a futile and blasphemous mission. Starbuck instructs Greenhorn about the dangers of whaling and is soon overcome with the prospect of never seeing his family again. Stubb sights a pod of whales, but Ahab will not allow the eager crew to hunt. From the crow’s nest, Queequeg and Greenhorn look over the world, while Starbuck bemoans Ahab’s madness.
  10. Getting ready for Wayne Shorter in 40 minutes. Who's in?
  11. ^ Love Other Minds. I didn’t know you worked with them! https://www.otherminds.org/mfom/
  12. Nah, but that's a photo of hardly any parallel lines. Hope the frig doesn't fall over.

    Just be aware finding the digital membership page can be a bit daunting and my non-expired credit card was marked expired, but eventually went through on a different card.
