Maybe Jade by Ian Boddy? Its been a while since I've heard it (came out in the late 1980s) and I am not sure if its still in print. Check his website for details.

Thank you Tom for filling us in on this sad day. My Sincerest condolences to you and Jim's family. I only spoke with Jim a couple times on the phone and had a few email conversations, most of my connection with him was through this website were we share a love of this music. Jim was very passionate, he was a pillar of this community and a great supporter to all of us in whatever we were doing. He will be greatly missed by many many people.

Last call for Immersion Festival.  ;D Ok, I was interviewed about the show, you can read the interveiw here:

I recently picked this up via's site.  I've been able to give it a really good listen now and I must say I think it's your finest work.  Excellent work Forrest! ~ Jesse

I'll have to second what Jesse said about it being your finest work Forrest. I think I've gotten all of your CDs (and an LP too) over the years, and I think its just a great CD, am really enjoying it. Well done.  :)

OMG, that was hilarious!  ;D

Chris Farley would have nothin' on that guy.

I thought the same thing- looks like Chris Farley doing a character!

Yeah but to me he sounds more like Sam Kinison.  :D

I say we get M. Griffin, Numina, Loren Nerell, and Forrest Fang to do a 4-man ambient masterpiece album and faux reunion tour and then do an in-store... with hopefully bringing in fans with similar results!

I'm game, but instead of a bunch of middle aged guys in black t-shirts can we have a few women instead?  ;D

Darn! I'd been looking forward to attending.   :(

You can come, just wear a white t-shirt and bring three women with you.  ;D

And I disagree about digipaks being durable, at least in my experience.  With digipaks, the printed material is right there on the surface, subject to scuffing, denting, dog-eared edges, water damage, and fingerprint oils, every time you handle the CD package.

I think they are as durable as LP jackets were, jewel cases also show simliar age problems (scratches, cracks, etc.) but their advantage is they are easily replaced. I can understand the need to save money, I just think the paper sleeve is going to cause more issues down the road then it solves. It will provide no real protection to the CD, unlike something that is thicker like card stock.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it appears to me you are trading a tray card and jewel case for just a paper sleeve, which of course over time will become torn and will probably loose its contents. Also, how will you be printing the booklets, with an ink jet printer? Something better one hopes. I'm with Forest, I would prefer something more interesting and will last longer. I've had no issues with Digipaks or cardboard sleeves over time, paper or plastic sleeves are another story, they just don't last.

I say go back this weekend when they are busy and try someone else at GC or try a different store. Even though their 15% sale doesn't apply to Korg if they wanted to they could make it happen some how. If that doesn't work then consider the M50 if you want something similar. I haven't played with an M3 but I know Robert Rich has one so it can't be that bad.  ;D Also the MR-1 is very cool and is a great sounding recorder. I've wanted its big brother for a while now, hoping maybe next year I'll be able to pick one up.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Logic Studio 9

For those who care, Logic Studio 9 was released yesterday:

Looks pretty good, lots of new features. The down side for me is I will have to upgrade my studio computer to run it as it won't work on a G5.  :'(

'Greatest Sporting event of the Year' - not for me.

I'd rather watch 'drunk football' or the 'drug-enhanced olympics'. I think they'd be much more
interesting. :)

Come on now Pete, you're not getting into the real spirit of the Tour. Everyone knows that bicycle racing is the most 'drug-enhanced' sport in the world today.  :D ;D

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Random MP3 snippet software...
« on: July 08, 2009, 10:02:05 AM »
When I worked for Phillips Media back in the early 1990s we did something similar for a Todd Rundgren disc called TRI (Todd Rundgren Interactive). It was a similar idea to yours but it was geared toward the consumer, they could remix the songs using a built in interface. Each bit of audio had meta data imbedded in each fragment so you could rearrange the fragments at will based upon what tags were in each bit of audio. Of course this used custom made software, and you had to use Phillip's special CDi players to do the remix otherwise if you played the disc is a regular CD player it just played the tracks normally.

Just wanted to make a correction, the CD was called No World Order, not TRI, Todd was referring to himself as TRi.

Here's one I'm currently reading:

A friend of mine gave this to me to return to the UCLA library, I thought it looked interesting. I better finish this one soon so I can get it back.

Yesterday was a bit of a surreal day.  On my way to work I heard that Farah Fawcett had died, then after getting to work I found out that one of my professors from my graduate schools days, Dr. Nazir Jairazbhoy had also died. He was a great guy, use to really care about his students. He had an open house every Friday where the real important issues got discussed, especially after he had a few drinks in him, and of course lots of ping pong was played. :) And then of course MJ kicking the bucket. What really made the day surreal was my office is just down the street from UCLA Medical Center, so whenever I went outside I could here/see several helicopters hovering above, and I could also here Michaels music playing in the distance.

One other famous or formally famous person died yesterday, Sky Saxon the lead singer in the old 1960s garage band The Seeds also died.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Help the podcast N00b

Audio-mavens... Right now my podcast is kind of piggish, size-wise. My 90 minute cast is 85MB in size. By contrast, Ultima Thule's 'cast of the same length is half the size (about 38MB).

I have to say I find Ultima Thule's podcasts unlistenable because of the low bit rate they use, they sound very harsh to my ears. I say offer both a high bit rate and a low-res version for people who use dial up. After a month or so you will see what your audience prefers.
