Aw, a nice little review of Bone Walker by Jason Burnett at his blog, Mr. B's Second Breakfast. I've never been compared to SJ Tucker or Blackmore's Night before, which is certainly a yikes! moment in an extremely good way. :D

VICTORY FOR ZIM! This recording is with absolutely flat equalisation:

Elsewhere I was asked about the bass, and my sample is a pretty treble-heavy song, so here's a sample with some bass in it.

First, a very small bass boost, trying to make up for the phone mic. It's small but not zero, via basic equalisation knob, not graphic eq:

Here's a larger bass boost, both on basic eq knobs and graphic eq; neither were cranked, but it was substantial. In both cases, no other EQ applied:

I WANT THIS LAIR. I WANT IT LIKE BURNING.

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/?p=6897
I WANT THIS LAIR. Of any extant building I've seen actually, you know, extant? I WANT THIS ONE. Seriously, it's 50% the Venture Compound as built 10 years later, it's 50% Fortress of Solitude, it's 50% the Star Trek original-series set they could never hope to afford to build – it is a spaceship ...

TOURIST INFESTATION is what.

Don't worry, I'll jettison them into space at apogee.

George the kitty loves.... Moog sounds, apparently?

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/?p=6888
George normally ignores my music – he's not fond of drums and will leave if I start to play those, but everything else just kind of washes off. Or that's been the case until now. I started fiddling with the animoog using voices I'd chosen for the Leannan Sidhe show, and he hopped right up and ...

A really interesting video on sound, and how the brain processes it:

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/?p=6884 #science
Anna had this video by Vi Hart dropped in as a comment on one of her Facebook posts, and it's really cool. It's called What is up with Noises? (The Science and Mathematics of Sound, Frequency, and Pitch) and she's talking about brains and harmonics and how sound is processed.

Pretty much the best #eccc evar - and next up, nwcMUSIC and Norwescon:

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/?p=6913
I had a really good time at the one day I got to go to Emerald City Comicon this year, for a lot of reasons, but in no small part because I was going as Earth Kingdom Korra, which is a fourth-year two-episode costume associated with the “Korra Alone” mini-arc where she's going around in Earth ...

So I got some free junk speakers, and started trying to take them apart, and that's when things started getting increasingly goofy...

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/?p=6904
I got given a couple of terrible, terrible looking- and sounding- speakers, and a pretty good power amp that has been in storage for a while, as a set. I haven't started working on the amp yet, but it's supposedly actually just fine. Yay! But these speakers, goddamn. I mean look at this.

Repairing outdated tech with even more outdated tech:

http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com/blog/2015/03/6891/
March 20th, 2015; Posted in random coolness; Write comment. I just repaired a 20-year-old landline phone with 40-year-old components. Why? Because I can, and because my late parrot Zoe (YES SHE IS AN EX-PARROT YOU CAN STOP NOW) is still on the outgoing message recording.

this show just got more complicated. March 18th, 2015; Posted in shows; Write comment. I'm playing with Leannan Sidhe at nwcMUSIC – the show is Friday evening, with that block. It'll be livestreamed! Anyway, she has a couple of new songs, and I guess the band has joined 1972 by way of 2010?
