    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Will check out synchronicity tonight Mikey! The stream from Amazon has better sound than the 'tube video I linked. If you have Prime, it's free of course.

    Digital pianos

    I'm with Dan. The Kawai keybeds are very close to the feel of a proper piano. If I had the duckets, I'd have an Mp11 and keep using my Hammersmith Kontakt samples (there are plenty of equally great piano libraries out there and this is simply the one I use). http://www.soniccouture.com/en/products/26-percussion/g49-the-hammersmith/

    Post what you're watching

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Netflix). A holiday present from the Coen brothers and (I believe) their first all digital production. While I can't say that I loved all the chapters equally, it has their fingerprints all over it. Our family fav Tom Waits has a great part in one of the chapters and the one that takes a journey west on a wagon train headed to the Willamette Valley (where I live now) were my personal keepers.

    RIP some fuck or another

    I was shocked to hear about Sherwen's passing. I agree, July will never be the same. RIP Paul Sherwen.

    RIP 41. Although I was no fan of his policies, it was impossible not to respect the man. "The good ole days."

    Ye Macce Threade

    Mine is 16G and I've never had an issue with loading/streaming but I rarely watch 4k content (the Apple screensavers are kind of awesome to watch though). I have quite a few apps (one for each of the channels I watch) and I haven't put much of a dent in the storage. I guess 64G would be more of a future proofing thing. If you don't have a universal remote, you might spend that $20 for one. The Siri remote could be the worst device ever to grace the Apple catalog!

    The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post

    Unreal crash at the Macau Formula 3 race. It's incredible to think that this 17 year old will be released from hospital in a couple of weeks!

    Wayne and Antonio, Terrible news for you both. My heart goes out to you and the others touched by their passing.
