  1. What are you listening to Part the Third

    Great album Steve. This is one of my faves;
  2. The analog thread.

    George Blood is one of the masters in the craft of archiving audio and film. The guy has "been there and done that" from the early days of recording and has forgotten more than just about anybody else living knows about the development of the recording arts. Pretty cranky and ornery from what I can tell!
  3. And now what did you do TODAY?

    My condolences to you and your family Kerry.

    I just went through shopping for a new bed and it does seem like all the ones mere mortals can afford are hybrids with at least one layer of foam in there somewhere. What is the issue you have with the foam Doug? Personally, I don't like memory foam on top since I move around a lot.

    Audition At RCA Here's a great article about the filming of this real audition and what became of the demo and the artists involved. It's great to see the workings of what happened in the studio recording these tunes. http://www.jazzwax.com/2017/07/complete-audition-at-rca.html
  8. Happy Birthday tom_hankins!

    Happy Birthday Tom!
  9. What are you EATING right now?

    Reminds me,.. I had three twins vanilla bean ice cream sandwich for the first time last week. I've promised myself to have one every month for the rest of my life. Sinful!
  10. And now what did you do TODAY?

    I photograph like an old homeless guy looking for a handout (gray shirt/hands in pockets) I shudder every time I catch a glimpse of me! Since I hit 60, I just don't give a shit?
  11. Schiit Yggdrasil

    Bought mine to bring old gear's power supplies up slowly but I also use it as a dimmer for stuff like work lights and fans. It's great for turning a fan down so the noise is not noticeable. Now, about that refrigerator?

    Yikes! Mine can't compete with yours but I do like a knob you can operate with one hand!
  13. RIP some fuck or another

    A truely great American artist! I'll always remember him with Jessica Lange as they ruled a little Camelot in Santa Fe. https://www.artsy.net/artwork/bruce-weber-sam-shepard-and-jessica-lange-santa-fe-new-mexico
