    What are you listening to Part the Third

    I love that album. What’s different about this version?

    Death By Carbs - Bread and Dough Making

    Thanks, it does! I didn’t realize that about most American rye bread being mostly white and mucho caraway—I must really love caraway, because I can taste the difference and I like it. Wegmans has premade bread, an in-house bakery, and locally baked bread—their sourdough has three varieties, the miche (?) is fantastic! That’s what made me ask. Also, yes, porn/salivating.

    What are you reading now?

    Just finished The Ten Thousand Doors of January — out fucking standing. Stories within stories, fantasy, an ode to storytelling...the author even starts the book immature and by the end is writing in a much more mature style, mirroring the character growth. Fantastic. Disclaimer: JA—not sure why so many of the books I love are JA/fantasy, but...there ya go.

    Death By Carbs - Bread and Dough Making

    So if rye bread is all about the grain and sourdough bread is all about the yeast, why isn't there--or isn't there more--sourdough rye bread?

    Really enjoyed this set. Especially enjoyed that first track, and if I was anywhere near my computer, I would’ve smashed that ❤️ button several times.

    You’re happy with the picture, that’s the most important thing. You can get an aftermarket remote and program it, and it’ll be far more intuitive.

    He has a better violin face than some guitarists have their guitar face.

    Happy belated birthday, my favourite non-relative Bowie fan! (groovy, interesting party favour noise)

    Electric Light Orchestra

    Deferring on the first question—I only have access to the regular edition via Tidal, will try to track down the 30th anniversary edition to give it a listen, and compare masterings. Might ask this sort of question on the Steve Hoffman forums. Multiple: Olé ELO, A New World Record, Out of the Blue, Face the Music (in order of hearing them and immediately subsequently purchasing them in my youth. Kuiama, probably, but The Jungle is a close second.
