        I only recently heard about the OK Computer Sessions they “officially leaked” last summer. Apparently available for only 18 days via Bandcamp. I was backpacking nearly that whole time and missed it. Do they still exist anywhere?

        I sampled some of it while it was up and was not really impressed. I don't think it is avail anymore. This quote sums it up"‘Never intended for public consumption (though some clips did reach the cassette in the OK Computer reissue) it’s only tangentially interesting. And very, very long."
        The oknotok white cassette is available to stream in the library.

      When will the press and more importantly, the candidates, realize that a win in Iowa and/or NH means nothing!

        A win in South Carolina, on the other hand, makes an important statement. Mayor Pete is polling precisely 0% amongst blacks, because he's a "cocksucker." Whereas my black family & friends are quite comfortable with "good ole Uncle Joe."

        It can be a good start, helps with donations really. Beyond that it might keep you in the game until more desirable states. The press just loves the shit out of it though.

      JRiver v26, Windows sounds quite a bit different from v25. Less sharp, a bit more full, and perhaps a bit more depth illusion. How?

        Living in Nashville, it's very strange seeing the Titans getting national attention. I'm so used to them being entirely overlooked.

        Telluride is in the opposite corner of the state from me. North of Denver does not get nearly as cold as those places above.

        Ouch. But if you're willing to pay $500 for a lifetime license you'll be willing to pay $700. I'm also a JRiver user since the days of Jukebox. It's surprising how many people complain each year about a $20 upgrade price to the next version. Roon is in for some complaints from the peanut gallery seats.

        If you want a burger just eat a damn burger. If this is flexible then what's the point of being so specific as trying to find something that is just like a burger yet not a burger?

        Make it out of lean, grass fed beef. Is this an environmental thing or a health thing or what? If the former then rest easy, curbing meat consumption is statistically worthless for helping the environment when you examine the science. If the latter one burger now and then isn't going to kill you.

        I like the Impossible better than Beyond (but not Burger King's). TJ's Quinoa Cowboy burgers are excellent. The kids like the original Boca, and the Quorn breaded "chicken" patties (especially the spicy).

        I don't have time to watch TV these days, but I'll add it to my queue. I'm not generally a fan of country, but there are some nuggets that I love. I highly recommend the Revisionist History podcast episode on Bobby Braddock, "The King of Tears". Great stuff.

        82F is nearly 28C. That is about 2C hotter than comfort for me, and my comfort level is 5 to 10 C degrees higher than many in the world.

        Just renamed MFiT. Some of the masters have been significant improvements in DR over CD/streaming masters so pick your poison. 256kbps AAC isn't lossless but it ain't bad.
