Well this plastic faux person is not merely short or disfigured; she's actually missing body parts, so I would say dismemberquin or decapiquin. Smile

Looked high and low and finally found a good shirt model. No way was I going to wear my HD shirt!








EDIT- Did you know people collect mannequins? I went to the local Sears as it was closing and asked if they had any mannequins left. They were all gone; someone bought them all. So you can imagine there is a person somewhere with a mannequin collection. Probably wearing little hats, and sports jackets and such. They didn't have any mannequins but they did have this. Not sure what to call it? A clothing figure, maybe.

Actually he's doing well for himself. He has a sweet new gig as a model!

I saw that, I saw that. Have to let that simmer for awhile. Presumably someone who owns a portion of a song would get royalties. On the surface I don't like it because it sounds like (once again) the artists divesting themselves of profits for the sake of sales.

Hey- I'm not sure what you are talking about re remembering stuff. I saw Dilly Arbuckle at Gemstone '57 and will not soon forget it. Larry Taylor was only six years old but showed he could load and fire the Howitzer all by himself.

I did remember what mildly annoys me about Kickstarter. It is like you are an investor or owner in a traditional business, but what you get for your precious $$ is strictly limited to your rewards which are explicitly laid out at the start. Nothing else is stated or implied. What if the thing or service being offered takes off in a big way? You get nothing more.

It's like someone said, "Hey! Let's offer ground-level investors a way to get a promising new product going and not really pay them for it! They'll go for it because people are emotional and don't really think things through."

Delays and unexpected twists and turns seem to be baked into the Kickshtarten experience. A few years ago I read an article in an electronics mag about a guy who wanted to produce a novel LED flashlight. He encountered unexpected costs, delays, malfunctions, etc. Audiori confirmed for me in another thread what I suspected- that Kickshtarten is not really a way to get rich. I suppose maybe it's an elaborate hobby venture? I had so much fun with the HD K-S. What do the rest of you think? What's the base purpose of it?

Of course I dragged my feet and missed the Kickshtarten but I do want the LPs at a minimum. So I went to the LD store and it's not there yet. So I went to Kickshtarten and I am reading updates...

I suppose what I want to see is my favorite artists happy, healthy, and well-paid for their efforts. It's possible Patreon has enabled this already.

Indeed. Reality intrudes once again on my Pie In The Sky. A problem to be solved.

It's the Internet. It is turning everything upside-down, disrupting everything.

I have played with this idea before, but obviously I am a fan and not in the business. Could artists make money with the "Ceaseless Touring" model? Live music has a value the very best recordings cannot match (but don't forget the merch table!). All of our musician friends are getting older but that's not really a problem. This would be a lifestyle of travel, low-stress live gigs, and more travel. This is something possibly well-suited to an older person. Note though that most people do not get enough exercise so this plan would include time for walking every day (this may be the very best exercise). Note that all of this folds together into an integrated lifestyle and not a job.

Of course of course I am speaking of things I know and guessing about what I don't know. Thus I could use some real-world feedback on this idea. For one- I tried traveling in an RV once (just once) and I really hated it. Travel can be stressful.

Have listened to "Ten Biggies..." several times now. With the green and red disks I was satisfied with just one pass each. This one needs more time. Note that it is a clear (untinted, or undyed I suppose) vinyl. When you hold it up in the light, it does appear clear, minus some softness from the grooves. But when you place it on the platter to play it, the color changes. My turntable has a black rubber mat. I won't spoil it for those who have not seen it, but it is not "clear" anymore. Neither is it black like the mat.

Just finished the green disk and it is evocative. "Man In The Mood" is dreamy. When I hear it I always feel like it's dusk in the late fall and I must get inside where it is warm, and go to bed, where I may possibly dream of a Man In The Moon.

Finally got the various HD disks matched to their glossy slips. Listened to that for a bit and started in on some 45s from thrift stores. Now I'm spinning "Dig Here...". I'm pleased to report no pitch problems like before. Maybe I imagined that; maybe the turntable is mounted better; maybe the belts tightened/loosened; maybe angels French-kissed the crystals. Hearing now "Now That I've Died" and once again fixated on the bass line.

Okay- it's been

TAKE TWO:

I'm finally really busting into the HD LP box I got months ago. The actual disks come in white slips that I would guess came from the presser in Munchkin Land, so I am trying to match the disk with glossy covers. Wouldn't think it would be this hard. It could be i'm raetrded and no one told me? Get right back to you...
