commented on Is There a Human Rights Problem with the New Districts Map?
I will only approve of this election process if each city council candidate comes up with a fancy City District Costume... a costume that represents the district most succinctly.. which is really the crux of the matter.
What Grandest Hat Of Them All will someone in District 7 wear as opposed to District 1?
commented on Here Are the Anti-Obamacare Ads Republicans Are Airing During The Daily Show
There's an important side issue exposed by the NR here that hasn't been talked about enough on sites like this or DailyKos, and that there *are* a large number of use of minorities that deliver right-wing talking points in conservative politic ads, comics, etc.
And that's why the NR is complaining about the dumb ad. It's not employing the practice of Minority Puppets, if you will, as usual.

Everything by Family Fodder is good to totally amazing. The 2010 album Classical Music was completely overlooked. "Be More Wise" is such an amazing song from that. Excited about this new album!
commented on Record Nerd Post: I Need Software Suggestions
For recording, I would use at least a standard solid mixer, like a Rane two-channel one in between the turntable and the input into the computer. A good sound card and some good WAV editing software would help, but pre-amping the recording correctly is the key, really. If there is mastering software, that can really help afterward.
