"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

@David (in London): Exactly. I'll pick up the current Wire and try to catch up there. Though there have been nights when my eyes don't even want to do that. I'll pop a documentary on from HBO or something. (The Bee Gees doc was really great. So was Bowie: The Last Five Years)

Woods, I've noticed, too, that colleagues are starting to default to 'setting up a Teams' call', even on a one-to-one basis. I've begun to push back against that now and say 'I'd rather just speak on the phone if you don't mind'. And podcasts in the evening instead of anything screen-based. I think it's really vital to defend one's brain from digital encroachment right now.

@D(iL): I've been trying to avoid digital encroachment for years, with varying degrees of success. But at this point, what with covid and Chicago winter, it seems like a lost cause. And there's that Party Girls remix I have to finish!

Local shop had a copy of Inside Story last week and I pumped the brakes on it for no good reason. Ugh.

Handy Haversack:

The previous rotary had a hardwired, er, wire -- not a modular jack, so I could not replace the cord as it wore out without learning more than I need to learn, Doug. Found a nice one with a modular jack when we were upstate a couple of weeks back. Rotary phone dialing seems to work fine over fiber-optic cable! What a world!

Feel free to consult me next time you have a 2 or more wire project :) I'll make sure you learn as little as possible.
