Cold days. I am working on mixes in the studio. Nine are nearly finished, with four still to go. I expect to have good, if not perfect, mixes of all tracks before we leave for Florida this month.
Also working on a setlist for January and March – which might possibly become the setlist for the rest of the year. A look to the past – bringing back “Passing Storm” and “Turkish Night” for example – and forward.
It’s a question of resolution. Do we want the 8 bit black and white version or 64 bit with millions of colors. Higher resolution = greater bio diversity.
Marginal Revolution: *The World in 2050*
No doubt we humans will survive anything, even if polar bears and Arctic cod do not. Perhaps we could support nine hundred billion if we choose a world with no large animals, pod apartments, genetically engineered to algae to eat, and desalinized toilet water to drink. Or perhaps nine hundred million if we choose a wilder planet, generously restocked with the creatures of our design. To be, the more important question is not of capacity but of desire: What kind of world do we want?
