Preserving the Past for the Future

It was a dark and stormy night. I could hear the rain beating down on the pavement like the drums of a high school marching band. Rat-a-Tat-Tat… Rat-a-Tat-Tat … Rat-a-Tat-Tat … The night was quiet and not much was going on. I was reaching for my jacket to call it an early night when she [...]

Cambridge Audio, Brik Instruments and Music Culture Technology.  After visiting these three companies today, my ears have sampled heaven.   Not for the feint of heart, these manufactures make quality audio equipment so beautiful, so powerful, even the songs I heard sampled I felt as if I was hearing them for the first time.

Cogliere L’attimo

What I love about that question is that the answer is relative. I’m fascinated to learn about something that is attractive to someone that may not [...]

Photography Addiction

Hello, My name is Jonathan and I’m addicted to photography. It’s easy to blame this addiction on the rise in popularity of smartphones. I’ve always had an interest in photography (or iPhoneography) but it wasn’t until the iPhone’s launch and the number of cool, snazzy photography apps available where an average Joe like me decided [...]

One of my favorite questions to ask myself when being presented with something new is “Why Should I Care?” I don’t ask it to be rude or insulting, but I do want to know the value or importance of something and how it could impact my life.  It’s a natural inclination, right? We all want [...]
