    I don't care how much you like your streaming services, we need to all come together to prevent the phasing out of physical media. The advancement of technology will be a double-edged sword that becomes a one-sided blade that renders what we enjoy now not only dated, but obsolete. We need to be able to retain and repair our devices so that we can watch and play our entertainment without the need of subscriptions and corporate whims.

    Chuck and Aleena friendship in the AU would both be sweet but also just, kinda hysterical?

    Like, one is a renowned inventor and scientist and the other is a witch. And that's not mentioning the fact that their old mentors were Nate Morgan and Ixis Naugus, two men who hated each other. Naugus especially, since he framed Nate for treason because he felt threatened by his technology.

    But then Chuck and Aleena hold absolutely no ill will towards each other, and even thinks that their skills in tech and magic respectively are pretty cool!

    #basically #naugus: im afraid all this newfangled technology will make my magic obsolete; better start a war over it #aleena: hey do you think we can use magic to power your machines? cause i think that'd be pretty cool if we can do that #sonic pride au #daniel's personal sonic au #aleena the hedgehog #sir charles hedgehog

    Old cell phone picture take on a foggy day in the Bavarian Forest mountains. Looks like something you would find on a murder victim’s phone.

    Rare aesthetic? yes ? notice the ruler, cigarettes, and lighters surrounding the mobile phones. I counted 53 phones. Which is quite a bit. Where did the photographer get them

    i think about the reversal of the magnetic field a lot

    #like probably too much #will animals start behaving whack cuz they can't navigate anymore? #are we in the middle of the reversal right now? #no one can answer these questions but i still have them #how much of OUR technology will become obsolete #will we even be around by the time it flips to witness it at all #what's causing the anomalously long period of normalcy? is it humanity? #maybe there's a year in the far distant future when we just exist for a full turn without a magnetic north. wouldnt that be something #akhgksjdfhg i queued this at 12:15 am bc i jsut told everyone i was going to bed

    And just like that

    It was over.

    Your phone needs upgrading ASAP!

    The mobile-carrier delivered the news with the tact of any sleazy salesman, via email.

    We recommend upgrading as soon as possible to avoid service disruption.

    Incompatible with new network technologies, I am left with few options. A new phone, or one that does not work. Just like that, my phone and companion of many years was thus proclaimed terminal.


    And I can’t help but think that there will come a day, where it will not be a phone upgrade. One day, it will be me that is obsolete. Perhaps I already am.

    The good news is you don’t have to spend a large amount of money.

    I really only have one reaction to this news. The news that yet another excessively wealthy company would prefer to waste resources, force consumerism for profit, accelerate climate change, and produce technologies destined for an early grave in a landfill than to build an organic and ethical system of technological growth that is as dedicated to its consumers and to environment as it is to the betterment of society through technology.

    Fuck you, and the horse you rode in on.

    I think this like all the time but i don’t think i’ve ever mentioned it, but if Esra were alive in the 21st century (or fantasy 21st century) they would really like christina aguilera

    #all danas go to heaven #the polite amnesiac #i don't know why but like esra has always had the most strong stylistic preferences of all my ocs #and i'm not a massive fan of hers but whenever she plays at work its the inner part of me that is esra who's like yeah this fuckin bops #their things are art neuveau obsolete technology gaudiness and christina aguilera #anyway tangent over back to new wip

    what a great day for my ms office package to get deactivated and the washing machine to start acting up (:

    #noo this way i’ll have to buy a new lap top bc this one has w7 and freezes every 20 minutes #technology becomes obsolete so quickly #on the other hand i don’t think that human consciousness can keep up with the fast pace of progress in tech and engineering #i cannot update my brain to make it work faster quite the same way i do it with a software #medieval students studied a subject for 15 years #i wish i had the luxury of thorough knowledge acquisition #лаура болтает

    Shure vs Audio Technica

    I readjusted the tracking on the Phaser TT (just thought of that one instead of writing out Phase Linear 8000a series 2 all the time) and the Shure sounded much better.  It is an RXT4 which apparently is a version of the M97.  The M97 was a second tier phono cartridge back in the day and was similar to the venerable V15s.  I admit it sounded very good.  From the condition I would say it was NOS.

    My version appears to have the same motor but has a plastic mounting frame rather than the metal one of the M97.  Styli are the same and there are upgrades that are available to take it into holy territory if the ads are to be believed.

    The Phaser looks like it was seldom used if ever.  I cannot imagine it being sold by Radio Shack who sold the RXT4 as a house brand. RS was never high end anything and Phase linear was high end.  So it was a replacement of the original?  Hence NOS.

    I was playing what I call my sacrificial album.  Superbly recorded music I do not like.  Mofi pressing of Al Stewart’s Year of the Cat.  About the least exciting recording artist of the was it the 70s or the 80s.  Engineered by Alan Parsons so great mix and far better musicians than the songs deserve.  Enough editorializing. The Shure sounded clean with great bass and nice detail.  It could be a keeper in the right home.  Should I try it in the Sony and Grace tone arm.  The Grace 707 and the Shure V15 was a famous golden pairing in the 70′s.

    For comparison I replaced it with the AT 7 I just bought.  It is brand new and may need breaking in.  It is supposed to be very like the 440MLa in the HK TT just more laid back in the treble.  I played the same album again and it was different of course.  Bass was less but I think better defined.  Detail was more refined.  There are some Sax solos that sounded more saxy on the AT.  Both tracked superbly.  There were some harmonica bits here and there that sounded more metallic on the AT.  So they are different. Frankly I want the AT to be better so psychology is a factor.  The Shure had nice bass and I will call it a richer sound not bad at all.  Different.

    I went to a favorite album next for just the AT7.  Paul Simon “There goes Rhyming Simon” side one. This was mostly to get familiar with the Phaser TT. Differences between the HK and Phaser the big guy is quieter.  I hear NO rumble or background between tracks.  Squeeze through of loud sounds from the next tracks of songs is more evident.  That’s kind of funky.  This album is from 1976 and sounds NEW.  The background singers in “Tenderness” were big as life.  I THINK I prefer this to the 440Mla.  Gotta do a lot more listening oh well.

    Finally I went to my old Emmylou Harris Album “Quarter Moon in a Ten cent Town”.  Cartridge torture test album.  I swear there are sounds on this that only dogs can hear and most cartridges have to run and hide.  Good solid result.  The highs may need taming perhaps the thing has to break in, but better than my old V15 back when both were new.  It never tracked this album well in the inner grooves.  Listened to one song then had to shut down.  I will follow up tonight.

    See if I can clearly hear Willie in there on one paper kid.”

    I may be in buyer justification mode, but even the wife likes the look of the machine and complimented the sound.  I have to do some furniture re-arrangement as I bought a stereo stand and need to move a desk to assemble it.
