    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.

    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."

    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!

    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!

    RIP Stan He made comics cool for grownups and I couldn't help but smile inside when I saw him on film.

    Homecoming Amazon brought another great podcast to video. The awesome videography and vision of Sam Esmail (Mr Robot) and excellent acting from Julia Roberts and Stephan James really made this a treat for me. IMHO Esmail is the king at enveloping the viewer in a construct at the drop of a hat. I really loved the 1/2 hour format for this this story and all the little touches like the way they let the camera roll during each of the ending credits.

    Antonio, Got a chance to hear Wadada Leo Smith perform "America's National Parks" this year at Monterey. Very cool! And thanks for the Mingus recommendation. I hadn't heard of that and I'll check it out for sure.

    I had the same issue with a midi keyboard. Out of nowhere it would just stop working and I had to reconnect it . Most of the usb cables I had laying around came for free with something or other and it seems like they don't age well or something. Anyway, I started using some UGREEN cables from Amazon and so far so good (6 months I think). Pretty cheap so you might give em a try. I have a feeling it might be related to the female connector on my Novation since I don't have that problem with any of my other 8 usb devices I use all the time. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P0FO1P0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1
