Amazing 1980s video about synthesizers!

This video caught my eye! It’s actually way more interesting than the thumbnail would make it seem! Herbie Hancock and others go into vast details about creating synth sounds and sequencing using the coolest gear of the 80s!

Archeer Podcast Microphone Review and Sound Test

I saw this pretty cool Archeer Podcast Microphone mic on amazon (get it here http://amzn.to/2wP0XD8) for only $23 and thought I’d check it out and do a little review for you. Overall I think it is a good deal, but didn’t really like the mic stand. If you want to get a better swivel desk stand for it, you can try something like this http://amzn.to/2eWp9x5.
I start out by showing you what the microphone comes with, then present a detailed sound test using Audacity. Hopefully you find this helpful.

Desktop Google Music Player For Linux!

I have a ton of music in Google’s music service, my own uploads, plus I’m a subscriber. But I always hated having to open a web browser to access my collection, which is not only slow, but eats up tons of CPU on my system.

Thankfully a crafty 20 year old developer from Australia made a sweet desktop player for linux. I’m running the Debian version on my Ubuntu 16.04 system and it’s working great!

Twin Peaks Unraveled: Dream of Time & Space

This is absolutely excellent. I totally agree PJG’s observations. Much of what he’s talking about was also theorized in a very solid book by John Keel called The 8th Tower, Ultraterestrials and the Superspectrum, which was published in the 1970s.

I keep telling people to read it to have a more solid understanding of TP. A lot of the stuff PJG is saying is right on par with what Keel was saying about entities changing vibrational frequencies to move,or suddenly seem to “appear” in our reality. I really love these concepts. Great vid!
