  1. I just read that Dick Gregory has passed away. R.I.P.
  2. According to Wikipedia: The Haeco-CSG, or Holzer Audio Engineering-Compatible Stereo Generator system, was an analog electronic device process designed to make stereophonic vinyl LP records compatible with mono playback equipment. These recordings were intended to make the 2 channel stereo mix to automatically "fold-down" properly to a single mono channel.
  3. Sam Shepard, whose hallucinatory plays redefined the landscape of the American West and its inhabitants, died on Thursday at his home in Kentucky. He was 73. Mr. Shepard wrote more than 55 plays (his last, “A Particle of Dread,” premiered in 2014), acted in more than 50 films and had more than a dozen roles on television. He was also the author of several prose works, including “Cruising Paradise” (1996), and the memoir “Motel Chronicles” (1982). Though he received critical acclaim almost from the beginning of his career, and his work has been staged throughout the world, he was never a mainstream commercial playwright. Most recently he portrayed the patriarch of a troubled Florida family in the Netflix series “Bloodline.” But the role that may have matched actor and subject most neatly was Chuck Yeager, the laconic test pilot in “The Right Stuff,” Philip Kaufman’s adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s book about the early days of the space program. It earned Mr. Shepard an Oscar nomination. NYT obituary
  4. Mayweather v McGregor

    As I said before, screw the M vs Mc spectacle. Instead check out this fight Tonight on Showtime:
  5. Doug Raney

    All of Doug's SteepleChase recordings are worth having.
  6. Amazon customer service question

    Wouldn't your loss claim be filed against the carrier, rather than Amazon? In any event, I don't think it would hurt to file a claim and make a report with the carrier.
  7. Mayweather v McGregor

    Don't you mean, Darn That Dream.
  8. Mayweather v McGregor

    In every possible way, the Golovkin-Alvarez fight will be the one boxing fans should watch. Even their press events are characterized by professional respect and well, fun. Check this one out:
  9. Perhaps if you provided additional information we could be more helpful in estimating its value, i.e., publisher, sku, size, pictures of the front and back covers, etc.
  10. Mayweather v McGregor

    Yes, I know. Showtime is televising the Money Show (what a waste of good broadcasting talent), and HBO is scheduled to screw with my enjoyment of the real fight between GGG and Cinnamon.
  11. Mayweather v McGregor

    This "event" is a total farce of the highest order. I've denied Mayweather my hard-earned bucks for years, and certainly won't help him pay his tax bill now. I hope people save their money and spend it instead on Golovkin vs. Alvarez on Sept. 16th. Now that has the potential for being a great fight. I only wish that Showtime was broadcasting it, instead of HBO. I can't stand Lampley and Kellerman, but I do enjoy Showtime's team of Mauro Ranallo, Al Bernstein and Pauli Malignaggi.
  12. WTB: Sgt Pepper 5.1 disc

    I believe that disc also contains a documentary on the making of Sgt. Pepper and promo films for some of the songs on the album.
  13. Jazz record label names

    My favorite is Black Saint. I even have a tattoo of the label on my shoulder.
