        The raw Butch Vig version of Nevermind, known as the Devonshire mix on the super deluxe release, has some of that same spirit, again before being polished by the Geffen suits.

        Personal history: made some awful decisions in my forum moderating days, and was party to others, because we generally supported each other. In response to some membership response, i recall saying, "You are right, we were wrong. But please, we are not trained court judges and we will sometimes make bad decisions."

        Make sure to try the different pad options. Caldera Suedes dial back the bass quite a bit and make for a more balanced presentation. The stock Caldera Thin Lambskins are more bass-heavy but a lot of fun.

        This is the v3. @Erroneous and I have the other two that will be in the US. The Utopia had long been my favorite headphone but the v2 came close to supplanting it for me from auditory memory. That said, I haven't had the OG Utopia for about a year now.

        Get well soon Cap’n. If you have to stay in bed, see if using a wedge pillow helps. We tested several of them in the Autumn (my wife had a minor surgery), and found that Sleep Number makes a good adjustable one. A humidifier could help, but only if it’s cleaned daily; otherwise, it can easily make you sick. As always, be sure to stay hydrated with Smartwater/Walmart-equivalent, and stay away from booze.

        He had a good reputation as an accompanist, which isn’t so common a quality amongst conductors. As an aside: I’ve come across two Japanese conductors who never had international careers, and whose fans are cultish (cf. Celibidache). I never looked into them because of that. I don’t even remember their names. Maybe Takashi Asahina (1908–2001)? But one genuinely great Japanese conductor and soloist is Masaaki Suzuki.

        Pres. Biden is still the best candidate the Democrats have this year. As Michael Brendan Dougherty credibly observed, “There is… not another fresh body or bag of deceased bones in the Democratic Party labeled ‘FDR coalition.’ And that’s what they need to beat Trump, and he’s the last item. And so they will go with him until the very end… [N]othing short of death removes him from the ticket.”

        The single best argument I’ve heard for Biden is that all the dirt’s already been dug up on him from the last election, the GOP has a big nothing burger with the Hunter Biden stuff. The best argument against him is that his continued support for genocide in Gaza is going to lose him so many votes that Trump takes it.
