Fuji Crystal Archive Deep Matte Paper is freaking amazing. How often does a print look better than a file? Yeah, that.

Seriously, I have found the paper I am gonna marry: http://strobist.blogspot.com/2016/04/fuji-crystal-archive-deep-matte-paper.html

Apparently this is how you sell a teardown in Silicon Valley -- just throw a steak in the yard. This lovely 2 br 1 bath with rotted stoop and a roof that should have been replaced 15 years ago can be yours for a mere 750k.

All due respect to sports cars, a kickass marching band is one of the most exhilarating machines that you could ever drive—especially when you are in the center of the immense circle/wall of sound. 32 years ago I was a drum major for a 180+ person marching band. We rehearsed like this—randomized, in the round. That way everyone cold hear the entire sound, and adjust as needed.

Large brass bands notoriously do not record well. But the sound stage in this ~2-min. Blue Devils DCI warm-up video is remarkably close to the real-life experience. Listen to the end, loud, and with headphones...

Most people here already know that G+ does a great job with photos; I just wrote up my latest attempt to centralize all of my family's photos in one place. I'm quite happy with the end result: 75,000 images (50 years worth!) – instantly accessible by phone, computer, and TV. With #AutoAwesome , Stories, and search integration too.
