I never really got a sense of quantites for anything throughout the podcast. We had a witness of one gold bar coming from a box that maybe had more bars inside, but that was an assumption. We also have no idea how much guilding was actually being done, but because he was the only one in the country doing it, it could have been a lot.

Now I feel like I'm destroying a good storey by analyzing it too much. What I mean to say is "Thar's gold in them hills."

I finished it last night. Plowed through it actually. I am a binger at heart. I thought it fantastic as well. One thought I had that I didn't hear anyone on the podcast touch on, and maybe I missed it, but to me, there is an obvious connection between the gold bars that he has and the fire guilding that he does. i'm just wondering if his stashed gold in the forest isn't about him being rich, and more about regularly buying and using gold for horology. Thoughts?

looking forward to this album. thought their last was so-so. first half better than the back end. both ga ga ga ga ga and transference were near the top of my playcount from the last ten years though. not many bands can do so much with so little.

i think the first song i ever heard from them was 16 years ago now. crazy that 16 years ago is still in the 2000's.

Ordered! Thanks for the tip. Tim's first record was an excellent concept album. His pop sensibilities are sophisticated. I always thought that, with the right machine behind him, he could have (and may still become) a pop star.

I find that when a band becomes successful, their follow up albums tend to sound somewhat over produced - now that they have access to the best studios and producers. With Bowie's work, since the 00's, I could always hear that cold, shiny quality that a professional studio brings, but they were still warm somehow. If feels to me like a lot of care went into the production of his work, all the way up the sound engineering chain.

New Tribe album is excellent.

And I finally cracked open the new Solange. Likely album of the year for me. Which reminds me. Hubski should do a top ten albums of 2016 thread.

Need to get that boy behind a drum set I think.

Just saw Andy Shauf on Friday nite at a place I'd never been to for a show before. I heard from a friend that the venue had terrible sound. I could see that with the type of music she goes out to, EDM type stuff. This music is not that, and Andy had it totally dialed. One of the best sounding concerts I've ever been to actually. The crowd was so into it, you could hear a pin drop in fact. Not typical for a weekend event.

Raw concrete never really left. And there's been some nice recent of examples of the new plastic form:

Preston Scott Cohen, Tel Aviv Musuem of Art

Tadao Ando, School of Art, Architecture and Design at the University of Monterrey, Mexico

This watch. Indeed, that's the first that came to mind. Here's another great one.

You look so beautiful and peaceful. You almost look dead.
