I e-mailed Gordon Goodwin to call out the nasty digital clipping that's present on all his CDs. He actually replied.

Did he send you the missing peaks of the signal?

No. :(

"Thanks for your letter and compliments. We get comments once in a while like yours, and I have learned that audiophile types and other recording engineers have strong opinions about how records should sound. It seems that is very rare for an engineer to compliment another engineer! But I can tell you that our recording and mastering is done by people of the highest level of experience, and I trust them to put our music in the context best suited for it. Our records are recorded by Tommy Vicari and are mastered by Bernie Grundman (who did the first 3) and Doug Sax (who did our most recent). These are accomplished practitioners in their field. And understand, we are not making Glen Miller or Count Basie records - this music is meant to have more punch and energy to it. I do not know what kind of system you are using, but I think it is a stretch to say there is distortion on these records. Unless you have gotten a defective disc somehow, which could happen, I guess.
Anyway, I am sorry you are disappointed. Two different aesthetics going on here, I think.

Gordon Goodwin"

I was recently interviewed for a podcast, an operation of IBM PR. Hear me say "heh"! Marvel at my inability to sound certain of anything! Count the number of "uh"s!

That description sounds like me talking 100% of the time.

What a fucking joke, my cheapo epson printer uses color ink even when not printing in color. This wouldn't be quite so terrible if not for the fact that it won't operate with empty or missing color cartridges.
I've been using the thing for only black printing. There is ink left in the black cartridge (it indicates this). But because it has been pissing away the color ink I have to replace all the color cartridges!?!?
At least it was incredibly cheap, and I got two usable scanners for the price of one shitty printer (they sent me another rather than try to troubleshoot the refurbs, turned out it was out of ink after about 20 pages). But DAMN that's irritating.

Should keep a watch for deals on printers, oftentimes the cheap ones can be had for less than it costs to replace the ink, sadly enough :/

Just remembering a restaurant with an arcade cabinet playing what looked like a generic 3D shooting game. I mashed a bunch of the buttons together during the demo and Windows something or other centered on a black screen flashed briefly. Heh.
