Howdy, Cranky.

I got back about one month ago.

Actually, I watch Youtube videos to get ideas. Then, I listen (or watch if I like) to my Tidal subscription. My music really shines now that I upgraded my DAC and amp. You're welcome to slum it in Taoyuan anytime you like. :cool: Oh, but we're headed to Hualian next week.

Meat Puppets, Up on the Sun.

Uneven at times but refreshingly human.That purposefully(?) out-of-tune singing doesn't work every day for me, though. Regardless, the singer stays in key a lot more after the first song.

Lately, lots of Albinoni. He's so much more than the ultra-famous Adagio.
