      Been catching up on movies lately. Finally got around to Foxcatcher. Carell was fantastic as were Tatum and Ruffalo. Very stark.

        A few years ago some guy that lived behind where I worked set his house on fire and shot 50 calibers through the fire trucks. He was mad that the city said he couldn't dump his trash in his yard.

      What's with Pepsi seemingly owning the Pacific Northwest? When I was there last week I rarely saw Coke.

        I'm really digging it. I also picked up their Starless boxset. A bit expensive but top notch packaging and a shit ton of well recorded live material.

        I splurge-bought the U-turn Orbit specifically for Sheer Mag's self-titled and now I have a ton of vinyl. It's a terrible affliction.

        The 12 inch mixes and originals often have longer cuts and better production values. Every good artist should release a compilation of their 12 inch versions. I would buy all of them.

        I stick by digital and CD. Yet I know I miss out on so much music. Do not get me started about old Decca, Philips and DG recordings...

      What iOS app do you use for playing FLAC? (I realize that I can play ALAC natively, not the question)
      1. GanGreinke
        GanGreinke
        If you need to play FLAC greater than 16/44.1 at their native resolution (using a USB connected DAC), then you could use the Onkyo HF Player with the $10 HD player pack in-app purchase. The UI isn't the best, but it is one of the few options that allows you to play the files without downsampling.

        Flacplayer offers lots of the same features as Onkyo, but is strictly for FLAC. I like the user interface more so, but that's just me...

        All great songs. Probably not the same top 10 list I would come up with but 21 Century Schizoid Man would also be my number 1 if for no other reason than it was my first real hook to King Crimson when I was like 7 years old.

        My personal #3 of KC is Cadence and Cascade. Great overall song, vocals and instrumental background is perfectly blended together, creating a really haunting sound. #1 and #2 is still Schizoid Man and Epitaph of course.

        You might be on to something with the odd snare drum. It might not be compression, as much as some other odd mixing choices that I'm hearing. The remaster was a disaster (as the link you provided noted).

        I love the Cure and use Pictures of You as a test track. The shimmering high notes are a great way for me to hear the treble qualities of a signal chain.

        My favorite song on that album remains The Same Deep Water As You. So many memories from that one.
