I’m so ridiculous when it comes to deciding what to spend gift cards on. Even this little $25 gc for HDtracks.com from Xmas. Feb 22, 2018 at 8:12 AM

        I normally avoid HDTracks, but the remastered 2013 release of "Kind Of Blue" is worth a listen- should you run out of inspiration. Lovely clean master.

        That’s good to hear. I don’t buy much from HDtracks either but I’ve gotten a few good ones.

        Was in a hurry earlier but I wanted to say that I was looking for a great master of Kind of Blue in the past so I might bite on that.

        He plays a sick sax. Amazing that we went from NY subways to BBC. Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up on Colbert.

        I noticed all the musicians are wearing headphones or CIEMs. Weird to think that even orchestras are wearing them now.

        I've got like 5 different half price bookstores to choose from in my region. Unfortunately it seems like they've started paying attention to prices on discogs as the vinyl prices have gone up significantly in the last few years. But having said that I did manage to score a pretty sought after Perlon record that typically goes for 50-60 USD online for a mere 50 cents lol.

        The new AMD APUs are actually extremely promising if the reviews and benchmark scores are accurate. Sub $250 for a processor capable of running most modern titles at 1080p with 30-60fps, which makes for a good stop-gap until the mining hype dies down.

        @Melvillian Luckily it hasn't been TOO terribly long since I last upgraded my video card so I will just keep my OC'ed GeForce 970 that is in my current setup until GPU's are reasonable again.

        I was thinking about rebuilding my PC this year. Afraid to say, it's not going to happen until Meltdown and Specter get fixed in the hardware layer. Maybe video cards will be reasonable by then.

        I was at a Better Than Ezra concert in New Orleans and they pulled up some dude to play on a song and was killing it. Then after the song ended, he went into the opening riff of Sweet Child o' Mine. They had to stop so the bass player could get a quick rundown of the song, but they played it!

        That's alright. We'll chalk it up to a personality flaw on your part and move on :P

        If you've never seen his Tiny Desk performance, check it out. That's what turned me onto him. And, living in Nashville, his anti-Nashville industry stance is much appreciated.

      Just finished Wormwood on Netflix. Intense. Errol Morris has really perfected the documentary/drama hybrid of his earlier docs.

        I haven’t really had any thoughts about if it’s “better” or not. One’s a miniseries and one’s a movie. His technique though of combining doc w/ dramatic re-enactment has gotten way better.

        It’s hard to compare because the Thin Blue Line was so groundbreaking in its time. Much like Hoop Dreams. Both laid the groundwork for so many docs to come.
