More Teasin'

Saturday, May 27, 2023

which one arrived first?

 Sun Ra did not use the term "birthday" - he referred to "arrival day"... 

so which of the following "arrived" first?

the Western Electric 555...

or Marshall Allen?

the answer below the scroll..

Marshall Allen arrived first! ... in 1924... 

the first 555 drivers were made in the BTL lab in 1926....

fwiw, the two go well together... 

(and see, Iain, I can post!)

Sequerra Auction

 Up for auction is the last system Dick Sequerra built and was listening to when he passed away a year ago.   No connection other than he was a friend and I am trying to help the estate.  Please spread the word.

Your Brain on Reggae

 Matisyahu.  Born Jewish... rebelled... followed phish.... found reggae... became Hasidic...  released "Youth".... went off my radar.... just resurfaced to me...

My favorite line of his came in an interview asking if he had ever performed on the Sabbath.  His response was along the lines  that he did a show on a Friday night in Alaska.  He then added since it was summer, technically the sun never went down.
