    What are you listening to Part the Third

    I couldn't help but shudder when I saw the picture of Lester Maddox in your post Ric! I was in school in Stone Mtn. Ga. when he was governor and one of the reasons I left home. And just like another duly elected official, he was an embarrassment to those how didn't vote for him and a hero for those who did. It was bittersweet to have run across him years later in Underground Atlanta selling autographed ax handles to drunken tourists (he was famous for running black folks out of his restaurant with an ax handle he kept behind the counter). Interestingly, that same year I was working banquets at the Hyatt in Atlanta and met a fellow named Carter who was holding a small fund raiser I was bar backing at.

    Music Making

    For you hardware folks,.. Here's some cool tabletop equipment stands I stumbled across. Very reasonable and it sounds like the maker is willing to expand his offerings if the demand is there. https://www.3dwaves.net/

    Ye Macce Threade

    As an update; I've been using my i9 iMac since July and it has been a dream come true for me. More than twice as capable than my 2012 Cheese Grater 6 core/48G ram. The 27 inch 5k display with the Pro Vega 48 graphics still catches me staring at high rez images just for the heck of it. A while back I was doing some articulation template (a Logic thing) testing and I had 500 software instrument tracks open in Logic. The fan is super quiet so I never know when it's running. Couldn't be happier!

    RIP someone or another

    RIP Michael Loved his bit parts like "The Russians Are Coming the Russians Are Coming" (filmed in Mendocino IIRC) and "Enter Laughing".

    Burning Amp

    That sure brings back some awesome memories. I can never thank Voltron and JP for all those fantastic meets they ran! And what a lucky guy I am to have met all you folks!

    Glad you liked it, Kind of the back story (or what I imagined) were small night creatures, a mouse and a trap door spider stop trying to devour each other and engage in sort of a spastic dance. Sometimes in lock step and sometimes back at each others throats.
