More Friday randomness

If you love music and occasionally like to peek behind the curtain to learn more about how a recording is made, then this post by Thomas Dolby is essential reading.

If your only recollection of TMDR is "She Blinded Me With Science" or "Airhead" you'd do well to check out all his discs. He remains an excellent and creative musician. And it's wonderful that he lets us in on how he works.

Reading this reminds me that I need to buy the CD of Dolby's "The Flat Earth." It's one of those titles that I had on vinyl but never replaced when I went to CDs.

UPDATE: Just downloaded the MP3 of "The Flat Earth." Ain't e-commerce great?
