The sun just came out after the rain so forcefully that I thought all the water vapor evaporating from my rooftop in huge clouds was a fire.

So I guess that plot would go something like... all the world's music destroyed in a fire except this one archive of every Brazilian album recorded between 64' and 74'.

...and every musician in the world has real bad writers block. But everyone is basically OK with this situation.

If there was an episode of The Twilight Zone where I woke up in a world where the only music that existed was produced in Brazil between 1964 and 1974 that would probably be fine.

(And make for a kinda boring episode of The Twilight Zone.)

Also the Nascimento is just really freaking good.

I just listened to two Gal Costa albums back-to-back before this, and the mixing on Milton is so refreshing. Vocals sit *inside* the music.

The Costa records are rad but I felt had to use my imagination to fill in the gaps. The mix is so extremely... VOCALS! ... (with a bit of something else off there in the background somewhere)

This Milton Nascimento album actually has like... balanced unison parts with guitar and voice that sound very satisfying.

There is a family of dubstep bros nesting in the north wall.

Couple months into a slow-moving project which at this point has been mostly a long process of throwing sounds away.

Cat finally got comfortable on my mixer after pawing all the graphic EQ sliders down and pushing every button available.

Welp. I'm 36 years old and I just applied to college again to do a BS in engineering with an electronics emphasis...

I'm pretty excited but also have no idea how the specifics are going to work out. If I'm accepted to the program I would start about a year from now though, so there's time to figure it out.


Every time I listen to Bob James' Touchdown I wish the Taxi theme was slowed down ever so slightly like it is on TV. (Yes, I'm listening to Bob James. Bob James: not just for sampling!)
