In many ways, I’ve been seeing this all over and within my group of friends… whether in the DIY communities of boutique musical instrument and gear builders, cafe racer building and modding, craft breweries and distilleries, and so many more that are out of my immediate sight. I, for one, welcome this return to craft, return to “indie” capitalism, and a return to using your mind and hands to create a value and not trade and leverage for a perceived monetary differential. The question is, can it sustain a livelihood for all the people willing to embrace it?
This is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time.
If the guys over at CERN are correct… we are one step closer to the Flux Capacitor.
I walk this block and the 10 blocks south of it twice a day. Amazing the things we don’t see when we aren’t looking.
Anyone interested in guitar building that isn’t following Jol’s blog, should be. He is putting up some of the most creative and inspiring builds of anyone I have caught in a while. I can never wait to see what he is working on next. Check out some of the builds here.
Picked this up finally… great record from @marcribotmusic . Haunting melodies, thoughtful textures, great use of dynamics and all around impressive phrasing/playing. Why hasn’t someone put this together with film shorts? Or have they?
I’ve been borderline obsessed with this album all over again. Always seem to come back to Frisell and his take on classic melodies and arrangements. I guess the next move is to finally pick up his duets record with Jim Hall. to be continued…
