Carrier? Yes, no?

Okay. A lot has happened in the last few days that in some sense, at least, is journalworthy. And I haven’t been updating in weeks.. too busy out there actually living stuff. So, in order:

Work: Sucks. Well, okay, I’ve been making steady process, but everything seems to take longer than I think it will. Ah, the joys of writing in assembly.

Band: Has a show on the 3rd. I’m a bit freaked, but we’ve been sounding tighter and tighter as we spend more time practicing the songs. Should be interesting to see how my neighbor reacts to electronic music.. 😉

Side thoughts: I see in the new yorker ads for a passanger car with four-wheel drive and higher ground clearance than a ford explorer. Am I the only person who thinks this ought to sound a death knell to SUVs?

Music: I got a pair of SRM450s as active monitors for Aug 3’s adventure, and I really can’t say enough about how good these sound. They are by far the best sounding speakers in the house. I keep listening to mp3s on them and hearing new things.. these are _nice_ speakers. And, amazingly, they not only sound really good, they also have a very respectable ability to belt out the watts.

That combined with a monitor mixing system will give each of MC’s members the ability to have their own monitor mix. This should be hugely helpful, and is something I’ve always wanted to have the ability to do.

I’ve been driving my e-scooter lots lately, and I *love* the thing. It’s fast, maneuverable, and perfect for those in-town jaunts. I don’t understand why I don’t see more of them..

Hope you all are having fun weekends.

    You might be interested to know that the Subaru GL four-wheel drive is probably the most popular car in the state of Alaska, where SUVs actually make sense for many drivers. Subarus are cheaper, have better repair records, and have better fuel economy (Alaska has very little refining capacity and thus very high prices at the pump). SUVs are still popular there, of course, but for every new Ford Expedition there’s a 20-year-old Chevy Blazer… and even on a per capita basis I’m positive that California has many more SUVs than Alaska.
