Outstanding! I'm pleased to be one of the first to be able to hear this. Saw your post on FB that you'd be doing interview shows, and a couple of minutes later checked YouTube. I'm already subscribed to your channel, so there it was. I look forward to seeing many more of these. It's hard to believe the progress you've made in the last year I've been following you. And now you're on tour as well? You're going to be one mighty busy little girl for a long time to come. Drink it all in!

To appreciate my own attachment to this news, view this pair of items from my blog in 2005 and 2006, including the comments on the first article.

Donald Featherstone modeled the lawn ornament after images he saw in National Geographic. "Things I did made people happy, and that's what life is all about," he said in 2006.

Hastily unpacking the giraffe from the box There are better ways. For sure.
My favourite is when people use iPhoto to send me images they think will be suitable for posters ("but it's the high resolution file my photographer sent me"). They are baffled when I inform them that iPhoto has reduced their lovely big promo image down to something that would be smaller than a post card, closer to a postage stamp, if printed. There are better things to do that. 
Off to the airport!

For $20 I would hope they also invented a way to keep from losing them, which is the usual reason I have to replace guitar picks. (Although I also used to put them in my mouth often, and chewed right through them all the time.)
From the region with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame comes the $20 guitar pick - a carbon-coated pick that reduces friction and, the inventor says, is perfect for players who like to shred.

This is an absolute scream. Emanuel Ax is of course one of the greatest pianists ever. An interview in good fun. Favorite line: "Sometimes I play alone." His expression at the very end is priceless.

A most interesting talk. I read Jimmy Nelson's extraordinary book when it came out about a year and a half ago. Got it from the library, but wish I owned a copy. In this talk, the most fun part is about the last 30 seconds.

Please direct me to another community or channel if necessary to answer this question, which should be simple, but I keep coming up with dead ends.

I want to copy (burn) a CD on my iMac (27-inch) running Yosemite. It's been two or three OSs back since I've done that and now I don't know how, though I used to do it all the time.

I have an external CD player. I have an audio CD of my own. I want to make a copy of it.

In years past I used to have both an internal CD drive (in my MacBook Pro) and some commercial software I bought, and making CD copies was not difficult to do. Now with only one drive, starting from Disk Utility I keep winding up with problems.

If I have the CD to be copied in the drive (it's already been downloaded to iTunes), I make a burn folder according to instructions, the contents of that folder are just links. So when I eject the CD to insert a blank, the contents disappear or point to nothing.

Seems to me I recall the process is to make a full image of the disk to be copied in an image on my hard drive, and then to use Disk Utility to copy that to a blank. But I can't figure out how. Help! Thanks.

I hadn't heard anything about Gunther Schuller in years and didn't even know he was still alive, but he was one of my favorite composers during my school days. He became well known for writing third stream music, which combined jazz (i.e., real jazz, not just hokey sounds-like jazz) with modern classical techniques. It was good music. I also remember something he wrote for orchestra based on paintings of Paul Klee called (I think) Seven Studies on Themes of Paul Klee. One in particular, "The Twittering Machine", was particularly inventive. I don't know anything about what he did in later life.

His take on things was pretty grounded. Thanks for sharing, +Lynn David Newton. I really enjoyed the video.

Dennis was the most prominent ultrarunner in Arizona during my own years of running there. Somehow I never actually met him, but of course I'd seen him flash by at races several times, and some of his friends were also my friends. As far as I know, Dennis ran only trail ultras, never the fixed-time sort of races that came to favor, or I surely would have known him from those.

It's tough enough to face the process of aging and passing away "naturally". When a thriving, productive member of society is suddenly taken away, the pain is felt more deeply.

One of the greats. Been listening to him since high school. No one is like him.
The New York Times has reported that alto saxophonist and composer Ornette Coleman died this morning in Manhattan due to cardiac arrest.

Please add me to circles about:

  • High culture: art, literature, theater, dance, photography, film
  • Running, particularly ultrarunning
  • Books - I read a lot -- literature, historical fiction, biography, US history, music, much more
  • Social networking in general - its philosophy, place in our lives today, and possibilities for the future
  • US history
  • Web technology
  • Linux, Mac OS X, Unix (over 25 years experience)
  • Writing, editing, English language practice (usage, grammar, publishing, linguistics, semantics)
