Audrey Hepburn was thin too, beautifully so.

Since I enjoy the pleasant luxury of ignoring DUP's posts, I can only suppose how this "thin issue" discussion began. I didn't notice the page count, and so far I've been too busy to give much attention to this month's content, but I couldn't be happier with what I have given attention to.

The letters always come first for me. I found myself making mental notes structuring a rebuttal to Rick Lee's somewhat disjointed comments on Larry Borden's "Truth vs. Beauty" only to forget them on seeing that Mr. Borden had done the job for me. Good show.

As I left the letters, it was with a little feeling of guilt. It seems Michael Fremer has become everyone's whipping boy, and I recalled with regret that I once took him to task for a column devoted to automobile systems. I don't think that letter was printed in the magazine, but it was forwarded to Mike, and he and I exchanged a couple of e-mails and resolved our differences. Serious guy, cordial guy. How about a general moratorium on picking on him every time he deals with something not related to analog.

Beyond the letters, I've only had time for the Smaller Advent coverage, which to me is the best yet in an excellent series devoted to vintage gear. Im sure thousand of us who followed the travels and offerings of Henry Kloss enjoyed a pair of those little guys, but they were of special importance to me. They were part of the system which helped preserve my sanity immediately following a financially crippling divorce. Later, together with their "Larger" brothers they got involved in my early experiments with surround sound. It wasn't the fault of the speakers that I completely rejected anything more than two channel sound. What fun to think of them again.

The new Silverman recording and "OK We're Rolling" are as yet untouched but looking good. Who knows what else is lurking?

Thin huh? So What.

It may be thin but I think it's a great issue.

JA, Silverman and company look very content doing what they perhaps love to do...best.

And "We're Rolling".

Two great articles with a glimpse in to the making of music.

Good stuff.

Yes, I think it's Wes' turn to be picked on. He's been way too mellow lately. And what about Art Dudley? I bet his email box isn't nearly as full as it could be.

I think I'll write AD and talk about cables! This would be much more fun as a coordinated campaign. And, while I'm at it, I could go ahead and send Kal that surround sound tweak that I invented out of those paper funnels you get at the gas station and some pipe cleaners.

I have lots of pipe cleaners but don't know anything about paper funnels.

Until my patent is approved, all I can tell you is that the little end goes in the ear and the big end is multidirectional and udjustable by bending the pipe cleaners.

I'm thinking that if those 'clevor lil clocks' can fetch 2 bills, I can market these babies for ($19.99...cheap!) and get those Wilson's in no time!

Did I mention they can be ordered in your favorite designer colors?
