News Chum Stew: Media, History, Vegas, and Patches

Observation StewIt’s Saturday, and that means it is time to clean out the links. This week is comparatively sparse compared to last week, the result of a busy week at work combined with the news cycle being dominated by celebrity deaths (the shock of Robin Williams, which overshadowed Lauren Bacall’s death the next day, just like Michael Jackson overshadowed Farrah Fawcett Majors) and police actions (with people acting surprised that racism exists in America… alas, it goes hand-in-hand with similar attitudes towards religion and sexual orientation — America isn’t perfect folks — it is our job to make it better). In any case, here are a few, perhaps less controversial, subjects that managed to catch my eye:

  1. The vinyl article was interesting. Thing is, I may be a purist of sorts. I want to hear the audio as it was recorded, and as pure as it sounded when the artist made the track. To say that the clicks and skips that make every vinyl album unique, it like saying that all used cars are unique because they all have different scratches, dings, and scrapes. Yeah, of course they have, but sometimes you want a new car without scrapes, scratches, and dings.

    Yeah, it’s another issue about audio of the “higher than, and lower than the human ear can hear.” Okay… well. If I can’t hear it, perhaps I’m not missing out on anything? 😉

    Anyway interesting!
