Wen they say 'the economy' they mean they made less than 1% less than the previous year, and the line is supposed to always grow even though that's neither realistic nor feasible.  Read more

I can think of a no less pointless trend than the return of vinyl. Yes, “technically” vinyl can more accurately reproduce the original waveform of the recorded audio, but that’s only if you used a 100% analogue-only production pipeline. If at any point the audio was stored or processed digitally, that waveform detail Read more

Or maybe the entire aspect of a vinyl-only release?  Whether it’s from the 80s and only ever came out on vinyl in a limited run, or if it’s from a modern producer who wants to make those tracks exclusive to the physical format.  I see more and more of this, and i love it honestly.  Almost all the records in my Read more

I don't think Howard's bunker would be so bad if it wasn't for, you know, Howard. It was well stocked with food, entertainment, and Swamp Pop. It had a jukebox, for crying out loud! That alone makes me want to get onboard. Read more

I’m wondering if employment in the tech sector is going to emulate employment in aerospace & defense companies of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s? Despite those earlier jobs, and layoffs, being driven by “contracts,” what the two industries mmay actually have in common are “culture.” And this culture may now include layoffs, Read more

Hi, can we stop calling things “perks” that are intended to benefit the company. Yes, I know, most people don’t have the luxury of free food or amenities at work and they’re not exactly suffering.
