And now what did you do TODAY?

Recommended Posts

Lots of skating with friends recently.  Here is a clip from slide practice Saturday.

 

And Brent's favorite capture.  He missed me crashing into a thorn bush.

Nah. This pair is now dedicated to skating, and I'm getting a sort of perverse pleasure out of slowly destroying them. Stretch cordura ftw, the stitching is blowing out faster than the fabric. I tore one of the rear pockets halfway off during this session.

He is on the West Coast now! How did we let this happen?

Yup, snapped awake in the middle of the night and didn't know why. A few seconds later, the shaking started. Believe the effect is due to the p-waves preceding the quake? Anyway, weird, and please notice that Brent had cleverly flown out beforehand to maintain plausible deniability.

I woke up about that time.  Maybe it was because of the earthquake though I doubt we felt it much, if at all, this far south.

I wish I had slept through!

I went to bed super early thinking I'd be fresh in the morning only to be left wide awake at 2:30AM after the quake woke me up.

Please do not put Brent and full rip in any future sentence. I think I threw up in my mouth a bit.

I guess real Alaskans do too, as I didn't feel a thing.

Took delivery of the last of our orphan household goods, which have been sitting in a storage locker in Westborough, MA since 2010. OMG so much random and forgotten audio shit. At least I know someone local who might take the Talking Heads LPs.

I actually sold a phono stage today! It begins...


Where is the real Al and what did you do with his Unnecessarily Complex 300B?

JP asked me about a different phono stage that I actually use so I offered to sell him the Eddie Current Transcription amp sitting in a cupboard the last few years. It's a start. 

Oh, and I still use the Millett amp in my main system. :P

Nate's home for wayward audio shit is still marginally operating on the east coast. ;) 

And having seen Al's closet, everyone's wallet should be very, very afraid.

Managing my first project for the new company. It's a small bathroom remodel. A 6' x 8' room and the floor and ceiling were out of level more than 3" in that 8'. Got them both level and am ready for the tile guy tomorrow morning. It still feels a bit strange, as before I was the carpenter, sheetrocker, tile guy etc...

I kind of like this delegating thing.
