Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

Yeah! I just did a medley: all of my entries from the past 12 years I participated. Had to get all the ditties back in mind. 21 songs condensed to 7 minutes. Chronologically, of course. It was good fun. :D Well, if there’s a silver lining to not being able to get together in person, I guess it’s ni...

So, wait. Is it great right now, or was it bad until it was made great earlier in the current administration’s term before it became bad again and now we need to make it great again again? I am confused.

Re: My Life

Air is really nasty here, ash falling from the sky. We’re about 20 miles East of the fires. A few power outages, but nothing longer than a couple of hours. A few of my coworkers are on the edge of the mandatory evacuation zone, but so far everyone is OK.

Stay safe out there everyone.

Where did you get the shovel thing? I want one of those. I make pizza every Friday night for my daughter. A deep dish Chicago style one. And a thin NY style one. I would love that shovel for the NY one. Getting the fresh dough onto the pizza stone currently involves contortions with several breadbo...

Interesting. I am pretty sure I’ve used the King Arthur blend for cookies, but I’ve never tried it for pizza. Perhaps I should do so.

That is a tasty looking ‘za. Our local grocery store has been out of my favorite flour blend for pizza dough (Bob’s Red Mill), but it’s just come back into stock this week. I will have to indulge in a pizza soon...

Re: Sample rate and bit depth survey

48k/20-bit. Only reason was that years ago when I upgraded from ADAT-land to a DAW, I set it to what the ADATs spoke so I could transfer all my old projects into the computer, and I just never changed it. Perhaps it is time to revisit?

‘round these parts most of the Mexican joints use crema fresca instead of sour cream. I mean, I’m sure Taco Bell and the like use sour cream. But they don’t really count.
