I'm going to skip the heated blankets and just buy Class A amps for the whole family this year. Oct 4, 2022 at 11:20 AM

      Rainbow rolls, family budgets, and some Traveling Wilburys. How’s your Sunday?

        Huh. I was hoping to get an AKM Modius but I guess I’m a little late for that.

        I just read that AKM is supposed to restart mass production for the 3rd quarter this year. I wonder if Schiit will switch back

        AKM re-redesign is done, but no immediate plans to switch back, unless ESS has problems or pricing issues. We have both designs mainly to ensure shipping something in a world of supply chain pain.

        Yeah that’s what I figured. Once you’ve switched it’s a huge pain to shift again after committing all those resources.

      Missing my step-father today. He taught me so much about 70s progressive rock and swearing in Russian at torque wrenches.

        I also swear like my father. I cannot explain why or how, it just happens. For a gentle soul he swore like fire breathing dragon ready to destroy everything in his path.

        Either way, take care.

      Five warnings of "six to eight weeks" followed by a ship notification three days later is amusing. I will never actually complain about it.

      A bottle of red, a double California roll, and a few more pulls from the last box. Not the worst way to end a hectic day.

      Opened up the fifth (and last) box of my mother's record collection. I've been putting this off for too long. Time to get it done.

        I still haven't played any of my grandfather's record collection, and he passed in 1996. things like this are different for everyone. don't think you need to do anything because it's "normal" to just get it over with. give things the time and space they deserve.

        It is okay to cry. My father left almost nothing. His old G-Shock lay there. After a month I had it fixed up. It is something special.

        @yotacowboy @Deep Funk Thanks, guys, truly. The whole thing has been a walkabout through a lot of (mostly good) memories. Everyone at SBAF has been supportive of my extended public therapy session via sharing music; and that makes this process many times easier on the chi.

      Down with a high-class, color-melting migraine. My kids brought me water, ice packs, and food all day between jobs. I have pretty good kids.

        @Thad E Ginathom Usually I get my ass kicked for one day and remnants for another. By the time I wrote that status I could actually see straight again, but I'll be spending today on light duty just to recover some energy.

      Not getting bothered on a scheduled day off always kicks Imposter Syndrome into high gear. Four day weekend was at least useful though.

        @bixby You're absolutely right. Perspective in all things.

        @Vtory Sadly the tube is toast; at least it wasn't an expensive one.

        @Thad E Ginathom This is a good reminder why most of my system is not tube-based... I'm a general klutz.

      Never thought I'd be "too tired" for music, but moving from one crisis to another has taken its toll this week. Need to schedule a respite.

        schedule the respite and stick to it. Also have pride in knowing those times when you are literally the only person in the universe that can deal with the things that present themselves at any given moment, with those present at that time. It is special work, and sometimes you're the only one who will understand how special that work is.

        Thanks for the pickups, gang. I really appreciate them. Nothing permanent or unsolvable - just highly stressing. The respite will come; I just need to hold out for it a bit longer.

      Packed up my old office system and brought it home, but "home office" and "bedroom" in the same space is giving me claustrophobia.

        I eat alone at restaurants all the time. I quite like it. Same with going to movies. It’s nice to be alone but surrounded by people. Also nice to do both with others. Different things.
