Jack, I'd forgotten that there was some Proms coverage on NPR. My "mediocre sound" comment and suggestion to "punch up" last saturday's concert referred to the streaming online coverage which is available live and for listening again for seven days more.

I was trying to be witty, not confrontational (and obviously poorly). Nothing meant.

Am curious about your opinion on the "lazy" percussionists...

No, nothing confrontational imagined; since I am listening to the Proms online I assumed that you were too, so I linked their site just in case you weren't aware that it was available.

I wonder if by "lazy" she means the relative infrequency of playing or the style of play when the timp appears in the score. There are vigorous but brief contributions(e.g. the four beats near the beginning of Uranus in The Planets)and longer passages in those rare timpani concertos. In any case, they play 'em like they wrote 'em and get paid just the same.

Tonight it's the Cartoon Network, and the only Phantoms aren't animated!

I was listening to tunes on the Cable music channels while the kids were outside, and was out of the room when they came in, and asked if they could watch cartoons.

So the kids just changed the channel....I wandered back in and sat down with them for a moment and was amazed at how good cartoons sound these days

Hey....where's the surroundHey...it's still on stereo

The M50s sound great in the phantom mode!!(I knew they did for music, but haden't tried them in phantom for center duties)

I have an assemetrical listening room....wonder if the TV(65" Mits)can handle the weight of an M50 on its' side for a quick center channel audition

Right now it's Genesis Archives Vol. 1 and next is Sufjan Stevens' Come on Feel the Illinoise.

A friend of mine let me borrow Illinoise and I'm blown away by the songwriting. The only way to describe this guy is a touch of folk with big wind ensemble and choral arrangements. Definitely check him out.
