That beautiful design is a half eaten coffee filter in my compost. I use unbleached and not-glued coffee filters and when I don’t add coffee grounds to plants, I throw the whole filter on the compost heap and within two weeks it is nearly gone.
I was listening to the electric guitar sounds on the album “Wrecking Ball” by Emmylou Harris and realize that while Line 6’s Pods (software/digital devices that mimick real guitar amps) are easy and handy devices they just don’t match the sonic beauty of a real guitar amp.
New plan: play electric guitar through the Line6 Pod, but feed the analog output from the Pod into a guitar amp and record the speaker with a microphone. This would make use of the Pod’s effects and software amp-modeling, but refine that sound by pumping it through a real speaker. Since I no longer own a guitar amp, Jon offered to let me try his customized Fender Princeton.
A Sunday Morning Twitter conversation:
Walking @ 7AM on a Sunday is something old people do. The young ones are hungover from Saturday night. I am enjoying my walk.
Are you saying you’re old?
Happily so, Dave! Our culture’s (sometimes) desperate struggle to stay young is not for me. Age does not prevent innovation, though.
Age is marker of time, while innovation is timeless.
The literal meaning of the term sabi is “mellowed by use”. Although I have plenty of rough edges left! :-)
