RIP Alexei Leonov

Not a musical matter, but rest in peace Alexei Leonov. First man to walk in space and commander of half of the historic Apollo-Soyuz mission. Peace be with you.

Re: Recreating Motown sounds

Wonderful watch.

My takeaway was fuck the gear, it’s all about having phenomenal musicians. Seriously those dudes are on another level.

Re: My Life

It has been a hectic week. We’re still mopping up from a fileserver outage (It’s now 1AM local time on Friday night/Saturday morning and things are not completely back). I don’t run, but I did ride my bicycle to work twice this week.

Re: Your favorite music podcast?

Thanks For Giving A Damn - Otis Gibbs - Less about music (writing, production) and more stories from musicians. Most of them are super cool stories, too. Even the stuff I didn't think I'd be interested in were interesting. Thanks for sharing this. I was aware of his music, did not know he had a pod...

Re: Least-shitty distribution and manufacturing channels

Right, I should have been more specific. “Recording” has a very specific meaning under copyright law. I was just wondering what implications that has. I mean, the way I read it, it seems to say that I can’t put that particular rendering of my song on my own website anymore. Can I send it to a friend...

Re: RIP Ric Ocasek :(

“Magic” was the first song I ever learned to play on the guitar. Rest in peace, Ric. You set me on the road to rock. |..| |..|

I hope you are up there jamming with Ben again.

Rock stars from when I was a kid should not be dying yet, dammit.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Curds & Chords (Madison WI US 8/2-8/3)

Geat sets y’all. Really enjoyed fluffy with the full band! Lunkhead played my favorite ‘Dirty Chucks’ which made my evening. I would love to rock with Pigfarmer someday. Stream was choppy in places, looking forward to seeing the full sets in IMAX.

Wish I could have been there.

Re: Berhinger cheap knockoffs off classic analog gear

I was watching the demo of the Pro-1 knockoff the other day. The Odyssey is also drool-worthy. I do have to say I am a little uneasy with the idea of trading on the name of fabled vintage gear and producing cheap replicas using offshore labor and cheap parts. Would I rather put my money where my mou...

I like the mode where you go up 3 half-steps, then 1, then 4, 1, 5, 9, ...

It's the "pi á la" mode.
This is a phenomenal joke and I am totally stealing it.

If you are a music and math nerd, you should look up Irving Kaplansky's "Song About Pi".

Re: Brother Machine

Thank you for sharing that. That show was the first SongFight! event I ever attended, and that set totally owned the night. I will never forget his command of the crowd in the “Let’s Start A Riot” finale. Rest in peace, brother. You are missed.
