I did eat a lot of beans to pay for the bike. So far, worth it.
Really easy to ride no hands.
I've been borrowing racks & bags to figure out a good touring setup.
Granny gears are the best, I love staying seated on an uphill.
Absolutely. God, imagine someone like Daudt. Blecch.
Although I guess he rescinded his support for Don the realtor.
I just put up a rehearsal recorded with the CM3s if anyone wants to listen.
2 mics on a big stage about 10 ft from the cello & cornet. Piano was back farther.
I got the wide cardioid CM3s. Love em.
Off-axis sounds just like on, only further away, so they mix well in multiples.
The omni OM1 Line Audio makes is really good, too. We'll see how they last!
We all know the MN house passed 2 pretty idiotic abortion bills yesterday.
Dayton will probably veto them, but what about the next governor? I won't be
surprised if MN becomes one of those states that get lots of federal republican
$$ during election, Wisconsin style.
HEMA HEMA trailers look good! Tonight at Uptown.
Anybody else going to the new Jodorowsky? Tonight & 2 more times, part of MSPIFF.

I've been trying to figure out how to write parts for harp & viola,
not "out there" parts but easier to read, so I've listened to Bax,
Villa Lobos, Stravinsky (elegie), Hindemith, some Alice Coltrane,
lots of Ravel, Poulenc & watched a few videos of viola recital pieces.
The more experimental Villa Lobos stuff for larger chamber groups
is SO SO good. What a great bunch of music.
I've also been trying to write marches like Eisler, so listening to a
lot of overwrought, not always effective political marches.
I've been playing catch up & really enjoying these.
