I hooked up my cassette tape deck and was made some digital backups of albums I haven't listened to in years. And I've noticed that it does sound better in some regard. Some of the 90s tapes don't suffer from the loudness war that CDs were subjected to. So the sound is a little cleaner and looking at the waveform in Audacity and there is better dynamic range than I thought. Just the hiss and flutter are the noticeable defects in the audio.

Don't let people treat you like dirt.

I've been thinking bout getting PSVR bundle for Christmas might be a bit of fun.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
- Macbeth

I know Anthem is not good. It's focus was around making micro transaction money and gameplay second, promises weren't kept, load times suck, etc

But damn this game is fun

Helps I got it for 5 bucks

A mint Korg M1 with new internal battery on Craigslist for 4 hundred bucks. Would have bought it in a heartbeat.

Going to have to buy a new cell phone in the next 6 months that's for sure. The battery has really gone to crap. It's okay on workdays but if I ever go anywhere....very likely it will die before I get home. It will go from 75% to 11% with very light usage. Even completely died while I was out of the house a couple times recently. The phone is 4 1/2 years old. Not sure if I want to blow $800-$1000 on the next phone or not.

What are your charging/use habits? Everywhere I look for advice on how/when to charge batteries tells me something different. I don't think anyone really knows.

I don't think it really makes much of a difference once the phone is over 4 years old. I charge it while I'm at home much of the time. But I don't charge it when I'm at work or out and about. Don't have one of those portable chargers. I could replace the battery but my coworker claims that only gives you 6 more months.

Maybe for laptops it makes more of a difference since much of the time you use them is while at home.

What does it cost to have the battery replaced versus replacing the whole phone? IOW, would you save money just doing the battery thing whenever it needs it?

Mario Kart 8. I finished Dark Souls 3 a while back and really enjoyed it. I even did an SL1 run of that game.

I ordered Seymour Duncan's Dimebag Darrel SH13 bridge pickup for a Christmas gift to myself. Sounds crunchy and great for metal. Will try to get a Pearly Gates neck and maybe a Quarter Pounder for middle.

the fall of a great gaming genre. hopefully one day it will make a comeback.



some salient points about the gaming landscape at the time which influenced the direction of certain games. I remember when ut was not trying to be quake or halo and when we got ut200- I just wasn't into it since it was pandering the market rather than staying true to what it was. the appeal for me was always that ut was its own thing and not something else.

been on a wave of nostalgia lately. kind of want to play minecraft again, there was something so relaxing about just mining and exploring and building in a survival game with no other players. it's crazy to think it was 10 years ago I first played it.
