  • My wife’s ACL repair was a success today. Now we hang around the house for a few weeks. Easy enough, we pretty much were doing that already.

    I highly recommend getting a cold therapy machine to help with her recovery. I’ve had three knee surgeries and it helped immense.

    @tvham - Do mean like an Iceman? We have one from her first ACL repair, it’s super helpful. Just need lots and lots of ice.

    Yup! I had a different brand but same concept...much better than bags of frozen peas 😀
    You've never heard Chris Smither? Here's a song to fix that....

    My dad did artist liaison work with Chris at a festival a couple of years ago. Lovely guy apparently.

    @Thackeraye I've met him a couple times after shows; seemingly a down to earth and nice guy, so I'm glad to hear others echo that. Such an excellent writer and guitar player too.
    Well, Home Depot delivery is 0 for 2 on their projected delivery slots for me. Saturday turned to Monday between 9 and 1. I was off Saturday, my wife is off today. If this leaks into tomorrow we have a problem.

    We bought some new wall sconces from them online to replace the really old ones in our house. They went on sale and we bought them quickly. Also, bought new LED fancy bulbs to go in them. I've gotten the bulbs already. The sconces...they're now on backorder.

    Maybe something from Home Depot can help you with those leaks
    I received just about the most warped record I've seen yesterday. It's a gift, so I didn't take off the wrap and inspect the vinyl, but based on the state of the jacket there's no way the vinyl is ok. There was no bubble wrap or cardboard stiffeners inside. Not great. The shipper (A Special Thing) was the only store that I was able to find a certain record I was looking for.
    Things are so weird with USPS right now. I ordered a record yesterday that showed up today. Meanwhile, the others are...I'm not sure.

    @duke86fan ordered me a copy of her AOTM and it showed up like two days later, meanwhile other things have been stuck in mail limbo for like a month, I don't know if theres any logic to it right now. stuff will just show up when it shows up lol

    My guess is that they are just letting existing pallets sit and trying to get out the mail that comes in without sorting

    My Poppy Christmas EP has been in transit for three weeks now. We love it
    Just ordered Peter Gabriel - Growing Up Live. I am really excited for this; I saw him twice on that tour and it was amazing, especially the show at The Palace.

    yeah, really looking forward to this. saw him in minneapolis, which was early in the tour so there were some hiccups, but otherwise it was a great show. sky blue with the blind boys was a real highlight.

    Yeah, Sky Blue was a highlight for me as well. In fact I had forgotten how much great material is on Up.

    YUP I've got several outgoing packages like that and it's making me stressed 🙃

    I'm trying to remind myself that everything is pretty difficult in the world right now so these are small problems. And my wife won't be upset if her stuff arrives after Christmas. But, next year I will shop in October.

    Anyone else get funeral anxiety? It's like I'm frozen in place. How bad is it to skip it?
    Lost a good friend to cancer today. Seriously 2020, fuck off.
    Is there a record club that focuses on classic rock? My sister is looking for something for my brother-in-law who just got back into vinyl. She asked my about VNYL but I read through the thread here and it doesn't seem like one I'd recommend.

    @duke86fan - for sure, in fact I think I'll take him to a couple of my favorite locals after Xmas. But if my sis is set on the club idea, I won't talk her out of it...I just want to steer her away from any that have been not-so-great for people.

    Not traditional by any means, but I've subscribed to the record club started by Alex Rodriguez (Record Safari) this past three months and it's been great. He's known for curating the Coachella record store and for working at the Glass House in Pomona. $30 a month is supposed to get me 3 records but he usually sends extra (this month was five). I don't think he's sent me anything newer than the 90's so far.

    You basically tell him what you like and he caters his picks to your tastes. The best stuff he's sent me so far fall under the 70's funk/soul category (which is a genre I didn't know I needed) and I also love this British greatest hits comp he sent me that was from the 60's. He's Recordsafari on Instagram.
    Is there a Macbook aficionado around? Wondering if I'll be happy upgrading to a maxed Pro 13" or going for the first level Pro 16". Main purpose is music production, secondary is video editing.

    That’s a tough call. It’s really going to depend on your workflow. If you’re using a lot of third party virtual instruments, or will be doing some heavier video work, you may want the extra processing power. You should also take a peek on Amazon and B&H, who typically have refurb models that are a year or two old, if that’s not a big deal to you. You can save a ton.

    M1 will come around with updates for applications , but it’s not there yet. Also you have mentioned the limitations with monitors and what it can’t do. I’d say for now intel is the way to go. Most first gen apple products tend to have shorter longevity (looks at iPod , iPad , iPhone, Apple Watch). Now i think the processor will be better supported than hardware product , but that’s the data we have

    I think I'm going with the 16" with the 2.6GHz 6-core 9th-generation Intel Core i7 processor. I do enough videos to help make this decision a little easier, and it hopefully means I won't feel the need to upgrade again before half a decade is up.
