My digital? experience with Abbey Road, whatever that means.abbey road

I've been busy and haven't posted for a while, but don't ask what I've been doing, because I'm trying to figure it out as well. Anyhow, at the end of the day yesterday, I sat down with a glass of wine, and decided to listen to an old favorite "album," "Abbey Road." Everything was looking good, comfortable, new setup playing via my laptop, via wifi, to my directTV, to my receiver, sick, I know. First track came on, then the next, but then, all of a sudden, a rude awakening.

You see, this was a favorite on "Vinyl" years back, and track spaces were calculated, measured, to create the entire "album" which had two sides, so you had to turn it over, and that also added a certain measure of time. The scratches and hiss between the tracks sort of etched a time watermark of sorts adding ambience to the overall experience. Back then, who thought of these things like that, it was just taken for granted, that's how it is.

Pul McCartneySo, here I was listening to the lyric words "Oh that magic feeling, nowhere to go.." and whoa! A shocker! I was unprepared for, yup,  digital track breaks. You see, perhaps only on my system, when digitized the original CD, I got "tracks" but not quite the old vinyl tracks, but newly created tracks with spaces, actually spaces which I don't appreciate.

To go further, I got quite annoyed, after all this is my moment toturntable re-live that experience, and who asked for these gaps? It sort of ruined it for me to the point that, well, I am thinking of hooking up my turntable. Everybody knows what a turntable is, you know the thing that's used by music DJs for effects. But no, I am thinking of actually playing on it, with the electrical grounding hum, scrataches, skips, but just give me the real timing and I'm happy.

I've used Drupal, a very powerful modular content management system, for this site. The theme and style is my own starting with the base Zen template
