  1. Thanks much! Also it’s a reminder to watch Cabin Boy again.
  2. Watching Chris Elliott impersonate people a long time ago
  3. The polymath John Herschel, nephew of the trailblazing astronomer Caroline Herschel, coined the word photography in 1839 in his correspondence with Henry Fox Talbot — a onetime aspiring artist turned amateur inventor. (The invention of photography and how the new technology revolutionized both art and science occupies Chapter 14 of Figuring, titled “Shadowing the Light of Immortality,” from which this essay is adapted.) For several years, Talbot had been experimenting with techniques for transmuting the impermanence of light and shadow into permanent prints on paper coated with receptive chemi
  4. Doesn’t really matter as we’ll all be back on turntable.fm soon, right? Right? https://entertainment.slashdot.org/story/21/03/04/2226217/turntablefm-is-back-from-the-dead
  5. Does this damage the “artist owned” Tidal argument?
  6. Okay, this may not be the most efficient way to solve autofocus detection problems (or is it the most efficient?), but definitely someone at Fuji is attacking from a different perspective. Reminds one of the ever decreasing on-time San Francisco busing rates. After several failed attempts to fix they solved by eliminating the schedule.
  7. Thinking outside the box here’s Fujifilm’s recommended dog and cat list for optimal animal autofocus performance and pet photography. Something to consider when looking for a new pet. 🐈 https://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/pet/index.html
  8. The reason the great Jamaican stuff deepens over time, over years, not with nostalgia but with meaning and nuance, is that it's a spiritual music. That's the anomaly underlying its power... In the States, rock 'n' roll is always on some level a move away from God into the devil's music, but in Jamaica the cultural conditions were different. Pop grew toward Jah. https://www.gq.com/story/bunny-wailer-john-jeremiah-sullivan
  9. Four part HBO doc. So much to talk about, including different POVs, one of which is seeing in the shadow of Trump.
  10. Where Are the Iconic COVID-19 Images? https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2021/02/where-are-iconic-images-covid-19-pandemic/618036/
  11. I think this may work better separately than with the film.
  12. With God Only Knows Wilson showed off the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique
  13. Goofy day so all Taylor songcraft filling the pandemic air
  14. There were so many computer superstores I can no longer remember names, but think of when driving by their old locations. Still a couple Computer Centrals, though one near me burnt down a couple years back and the rest are pretty dead. Micro Center shrunk and vacated the area. It still seems strange Silicon Valley can't support a large store for quick pickups, when there was once so many. Guess it's all Amazon and fast delivery now, same as everywhere else. Will be strange not to be able to pick up things on a lunch run. A ton of problems with Fry's over the years. I often wondered how A
  15. Is this what Senn has been up to? I'm probably playing catch-up. "When it comes to gaming audio, few can keep up with EPOS. A joint venture between global audio giants Sennheiser and Demant, this brand brings decades of sonic excellence to the world of gaming. Now, it’s landing on Drop." https://drop.com/all-communities/drops/epos-spotlight
  16. For those who can take advantage... Apple Watch can now control your grill thanks to new Traeger feature https://9to5mac.com/2021/02/22/apple-watch-can-now-control-your-grill-thanks-to-new-traeger-feature/

    Spotify HiFi

    I hope to have a listening space as good as that bubble some day
  18. Hope you have a great day.
