ONe time I gently asked Mrs. GeneJockey - who was about to got out with her jacket on inside out - when having the seams and tag on the outside had become the fashion.

Mutli-track tape opened up a ton of options. Computer recording is essentially infinity-track tape with a super-easy slice-and-splice option.

But it collapses the soundstage, man!

Stumbled onto another picture of Vance on the road before he became a trackie. I just like the picture.

Did his guads become massive, once he moved to the track?

Ineffectively, apparently.

They should open it for people who weren't part of the supposed mess. I got hot takes to post!

For about the first thirty minutes of my trainer ride today, I wondered why my drivetrain was so noisy and the shifting was so poor. I was in the middle of a TT effort at the time, and had to concentrate to block it out. Once my TT lap was done, I thought about it for a second and realized I'd never torqued the rear thru axel. Oops. :o

Be careful! Ignoring an odd feeling in my left pedal because I was in the middle of a race ended up with the pedal breaking off the spindle while I was sprinting, and I clouted my left ankle something fierce! Luckily didn't drive the family jewels back inside my abdomen - I thank sloping top tubes for that.

About to break in a CRP-2! :bday:

Some folks just have too much time on their hands.

Yes, he got bigger all over and I heard he was even coaching at the velodrome but has moved out of the area recently.

I don’t want my recording device to know measure and beat. So much stuff done now is a slave of the machine.

I still run a cute little 1/2” 8tk Otari and mix to a 1/4” machine. I recorded on big 3M machines for a while but they were really meant for studios with a machine room.

The benefit of few tracks is you have to plan stuff, record with the mix in mind, and actually make decisions as you work.

The German's bobsleds look the coolest.

That happened to me 3 times and I crashed twice but I don't have any pics. I do have this one.

Probably cropped out the fins of the circling sharks.

what’s more glam than danger?
