Re: Binge watching TV

Looking forward to Picard a bit more as apparently it has Q, which is never a bad thing. I think it will be along wait until Section 31 arrives and it will need some timeline twisting as Georgiou has absconded back to the mirror universe, however Star Trek cannon is more malleable than playdough. On...

Re: Art For Art's Sake

More extreme examples would be Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music and Julian Cope's Woden, both marvelous in their own ways but not for the faint of heart.

Re: Art For Art's Sake

The most extreme example of art for art's sake is probably Deep Purple's Concerto for group and orchestra. Unlike many, I love that - and the follow-up 'Gemini Suite'. :dance: Still don't like 'The Astonishing', though. :snooty: qobuz have a very good 96/24 of the Gemini Suite that I've recently in...

Re: Hey Hey, My My

Like Frank Zappa & Daevid Allen LP's, you can never have too many Neil Young LP's, as the first two have moved on a new album from Mr Young is a very welcome thing.

Re: Binge watching TV

Re: Binge watching TV

I would really like to have seen a Pike/Spock spin off from season 2 rather than Picard do a reprise of 'old men in space' but there you go.

Re: Binge watching TV

How funny - I've just re watched Discovery 1 % 2 and am about to start on season 3 again. I won't spoil it for you. As for Foundation, goodness knows I've just re read the first 3 books which in hindsight was a mistake. For goodness sakes we're 5 episodes in without a resolved Seldon crisis, by now ...

Re: I just bought an unexpected amp

Must admit I have a soft spot for Arcam, I had a CD72 which had a better sounding DAC than the Tag Mclaren DAC that was all the rage at that time. The amp was one of the early FMj range and was pretty decent. I'm going to sort of contradict myself here, I expect the onboard DAC to be pretty good, Ar...
