Classic Music is Dead (or at least Terminal)

Events have conspired this week to bring up a topic that I find sort of near and dear to my heart and yet simultaneously deeply depressing. That topic is the state of "Classical" music in our modern times. Growing up, my father listened to nothing but Classical music in the same way he read no paper except the New York Times. Once you hear the best, he reasoned, nothing else is interesting.

People keep complaining that they can't comment on this blog. This is by design, so get over it.

Digital Picture Workflow

One of the digital photography web sites recently published an article on how Sports Illustrated manages its digital photographs. The piece described the process of shooting and editing 16,000 pictures during the Super Bowl. After reading it, I realized that the workflow that I've come up with for managing my own personal digital pictures is similar to SI.

Why I don't buy a Silvia, or Ode to La Prima

Home espresso machines are a big business. For a few hundred dollars you can get a machine on par with the stuff that Starbucks is using to make those Venti half-caff double caramel 2 single vanilla machiatto smoothie drinks for the local teenage set. But here is why I'd rather just go to La Prima espresso.

XBox Football

I always liked football simulations. The best one from my youth was an old game on the Apple II that was text only where you picked plays and the computer simulated the result. And, who can forget the hand held white Coleco games with the red dots.

Well, football games have come a long way.

I bought myself an xbox for my birthday 4 or 5 months ago. I've never been a big gamer. Over the last decade or so, I've played the odd shooter game for a while and then stopped again for years at a time. But, I heard that Half-life 2 was going to be coming out soon, and since I don't own a PC, I figured an xbox would be a cheaper way to get that game.

My Thoughts on Digital Cameras

I wrote a page that covers my views on digital cameras.
Of course, no one links to it so I'll never get any hits. But there you
