    I think I’ve seen the most shows I’ve seen per year since the divorce. Go figure. So glad I lived that part of my life. So glad it’s over too.

    Nice tip on 7/1/12. Not a show I’ve listened to outside the Fee, maybe the Ghost.

    Watching baseball, now the the Yanks have sold the farm, I’m interested.

    Just realized the olympics starts in 4 days. Snuck up.

  8. phishm Says:

    The Olympics will be a disaster NT. A total disaster. Just watch. Fingers crossed and such, but. Well you know.

    Inquiring for a friend: Anyone know of an iOS app that will copy file names from a txt file to a directory listing? i.e.: gdDATE-TRACK#.whatever > Ramble On Rose.whatever?

    Probably not, but thought I’d throw it out there.

    :: checking Lolla highlights ::

    I loved jane’s addiction so much in ’89-’91 but damn if they aren’t the epitome of a nostalgia act from those alt rock days.

    No 10/31???
    Probably tired of the pressure/expectations on that date

    ^ vegas is 4 nights. they are playing 10/31

  12. BingosBrother Says:

    That Fee didn’t seem real then and still doesn’t. Dreaming music. 2nd set was fierce thru Ghost. Xeyed No Quarter Light Ghost. Fuckin A right. No Quarter gotta be the best cover selection of 3.0, right? Gets me straight jacked every single time. Trey brings those power chords crashing down I wanna rip off my h as and throw it at someone.

  13. MrCompletely Says:

    Fuckers need to start playing Echoes already

  14. [Not Tom] Says:

    Not doubting our Landlord at all but that’s the first I’ve seen that 10/31 is on the table.

    4 night stand in vegas could overshadow the entirety of the rest of the fall tour.

    This year will be the first time that nv sportsbookso will allow betting on the Olympics. So my inner degenerate is looking forward to these games more then any ither

  16. dorn76 Says:

    Phanbase will love when they drop their new album on 10/31. Loooove it.

  17. [Not Tom] Says:

    When the played No Quarter at Raleigh last summer that’s the song that the SLF kept talking ’bout for days.

  18. [Not Tom] Says:

    Did I fall asleep or something?? Frusciante is no longer in the RHCPs … again? They have a “Josh” on guitar now too???

  19. dorn76 Says:

    No Q lit up the Billy G. Big moment.

    Drive by audio talk:

    All things being equal, 24 bit and 16 bit audio files will have no perceivable difference.

    The bit refers to bit depth which is how dynamic range is stored. Dynamic range is essentially the “loudness” range. In other words, the window of loudest to quietest noise in the file. 16 bit has plenty of room to capture these volumes, from the ear-piercingly loud to below the quietest sound humans can hear (not to mention, below the ambient hum of even the best stereo equipment). 24 bit is highly recommended for recording (gives you more headroom, lower noise floor which can come in handy during mastering) but is a complete non-factor for playback, according to science and stuff.

    The 16 bit clipping issue for LP appears to be an artifact of resampling 48kHz to 44.1 kHz which can introduce higher intersample peaks. This easily avoided by giving ~2 db of headroom to the source (48 kHz) file.
    If you re-encode your 24/48 files to 16/48, you should be able to avoid the clipping altogether.

    Also, if you think you can hear the difference between a (properly mastered) 16 bit and 24 bit file, you can’t. Or at least, I won’t believe you until I see a screen shot of an ABX test result. (FYI, Foobar has this plug-in.) Not that anyone should care whether I believe them or not.

    There is a difference between measurable and perceptible difference. #placeboEffect

    Fearless is my jam from that album

  23. dorn76 Says:


    I have no clue about the 24bit game as I’ve only dl’d and listened through a paper towel roll.


  24. [Not Tom] Says:

    Ahhh Fearless. I love when I can play that for someone and they’re eyes go wide and they’re all “who is this?!?”

    Probably my favorite PF song.

  25. voopa Says:

    Well, 24 bit is at least louder than 16 because more bits…
