After the Eclipse

After the Eclipse

Written by Leebs

Welcome to Copper #40!

The old expression "a miss is as good as a mile" seems to apply to the recent eclipse: those of us in the 90% range of totality were underwhelmed, while those who got The Full Monty talk about life-changing experiences, incredible emotionality, blah blah.

"Life-changing"? Sorry: my life has a lot of inertia, and it takes a lot to change it. Maybe I'll see 100% in my old hometown of Carbondale, come the '24 eclipse. Then we'll see. ;->

I'm happy to welcome back our resident foodie Chloe Olewitz.  Just in time for summer's end, Chloe explains the difference between ice cream, gelato, sorbet---all that frozen stuff. Chloe's next piece will be about martial arts---so be nice!

Dan Schwartz is in the lead-off spot with the first in a series of articles on encounters--this one, with Jack Casady; Seth Godin tells us his favorite audio tweak; Richard Murison sends his compliments to two's complement; Duncan Taylor writes about his new live-recording venue; Roy Hall tells about a family member with issues; Anne E. Johnson introduces indie artist Petite Noir; Woody Woodward looks back at Jethro Tull---and wrote while standing on one leg to get in the mood;  and I worry about devices that are smarter than their user, and take a look at Bang & Olufsen.

Industry News
 tells of ---well, there's so much going on, you'll just have to read it;  Anne E. Johnson is back in Something Old/Something New, looking at recordings of the works of Frescobaldi Gautam Raja is back with a control issue; I finish my look around the California Audio Show; and Jim Smith looks at the high-end industry and doesn't like what he sees; In My Room is the incredible story of a reader's home-built pipe organ (!!)---and you'll have to see it to believe it .

We wrap up Copper #40 with a classic cartoon from Charles Rodrigues, and another beautiful Parting Shot from Paul McGowan.

Until nest issue—enjoy!

Cheers, Leebs.
