Yesterday I was carrying packing blankets in when a blanket corner caught a painting, which caught another painting which fell over onto a lamp, which came crashing down to the floor, but not before grabbing my prize 1981 mint, koa Taylor guitar with the florentine cutaway and the extra wide neck, my favorite guitar and sending it hurtling to the floor two feet down. I stared at the fruits of my infamy, dumbfounded and couldn't even look at the carnage for several minutes. What is done is done. I picked it up, waiting to see the snapped neck and puncture wounds and there's not a scratch on it. Miraculous. Forget that atheism stuff. I'm a believer.
Stan sent this over:
Check this out!
Listening to Chris Whitley (and going to see his daughter Trixie next week…talented people.)
but here's the thing. I needed to upgrade my sound system.
So I bought a 25 year old Yamaha Class A, 100 WPC….holy crap
EBAY. 70 bucks plus shipping….a steal.
I also picked up an immaculate Carver 900 yesterday from an architect. It is in showroom condition. That was 125 and worth 250 in this kind of condition.
I have a wonderful pair of Infinity bookshelf speakers with double suspended woofers. I got them from Janis Ian as a gift in 1979.
So am looking forward to re-listening to all my favorite music for the next ten or fifteen years or until my hearing goes away!
It's all good.
