Insomnia is getting TSwift's "cardigan" stuck in my head and realising the double entendre in "you put me on and said I was your favorite". Sep 18, 2020 at 5:30 PM

      [Request] Recording sample of MiniDSP UMIK-1? Just general stuff, could be singing or ambiance or whatever. Context in comment.

        Thank you! This is actually exactly what I was hoping for, though I wonder at whether the Maven mini won't be significantly gimped if used for measurements?

        My level of knowledge about mics is such that I hadn't even considered polar patterns (yes I looked it up). Gah.

        You want an omni mic for measurements. Directional mics have different purpose. The Maven is designed to reject room ambience. Think of microphones like camera lenses. They have different goals depending on design.

        Much as it's far afield from my academic crud I just think physics is the coolest field of study, especially on massive cosmic scales. It's fun to learn about stuff like that as much as it is to see someone use a massively-built machine to yeet a ball that breaks the sound barrier.

        I agree physics is the best. Of course I’m biased. I taught AP Physics for 30 years.

        Convenience or grocery store bought sushi (entire set or tray, not individual pieces) can be thrown in the microwave for 20 or so seconds to warm up the sushi piece just enough to give it that fresh from the chef's hand taste...

        LOL I'm sure that many would turn their noses up at it but it's like convenience store bento sushi but slightly more casserole-like with stronger flavours.

        Had crispy nori wraps, used them like lettuce for ssam.

        Metal can taste a bit edgy as it doesn't absorb the stuff that paper does. Cloth is rather high maintenance to keep it from smelling mildewy (see video above).

        The only metal solution that I have ever used repeatedly is the Swiss gold. It’s actually not bad at all if you use a good grinder. Makes a small cup.

        No need to disassemble, just pull pads and front foam off (but u must have coin mod, otherwise shit wouldn't get in there), and CAREFULLY use double-sided tape on the end of a cotton swab.

        Yup, just took the pads and foam off this time around. The part that perplexed me is how anything got into the driver and on the backside of the foam when I made sure it was clean last time I put the thing back together.

        Ah the mysteries of life.

      Another film, Psychokinesis (염력). Superhero story with some drama + hilarious bits. Actually cried at some points. Fun watch, great effects.

        Screw sleep. Ghost Stories (2020), Indian horror anthology. Getting late so watching this one piecemeal but first couple stories have good pacing and are genuinely unnerving. Tendency for some shots to linger uncomfortable stretches of time but it's used to good effect.

        Acting is pretty ace, and there's a profound sense of squick and tension when need be. Characters also teeter between hateable and sympathetic.

        I did start learning to sew in earnest when a pair of pajamas I got from my grandpa developed a massive hole in the knee. Sentimentality is a strong motivator lol.

      In my quest to get the ZDT Jr. repaired (yes, still at it!) I have come to strike up a convo with a cool local amp maker. I love this hobby.

        Had the same experience in my quest to get SW51+ repaired! The amp maker/repairman I met was really grumpy and didn't like to say anything more than 2 words per minute though ("Hmm?" "No." "Get out.") which was pretty entertaining and endearing in a way.

        IMO he gets some points docked for acknowledging Harman (semi-serious) but his testing is pretty comprehensive and if he measures a few more headphones it'll be easier to triangulate. Just irked because he changed his gear up partway through so some measurements won't be directly comparable.
