Totally redoing the Video room. Mistake number 1....

I now know why I love 2-channel audio and video.

My wife wanted to totally redo the TV room. Paint and carpet...the whole shebang. 6 years earlier the install was Complete. Now as I start to dis-mantle all the wiring and I remember how much I love 2-channel audio. It was attack of the dust bunnies. Man, they are evil. I cannot believe how much dust has developed, but I will admit this is the dustiest house we have ever owned.

Now Diane tells me she understands why I liked all those equipment cabinets with the glass doors she made me get rid of. I'll have it all done with paint and the new carpet installed by tomorrow night.

Now, if I can just stop thinking about 2012 I'll survive. "Time to make the donuts"! Now I know how that guy felt.

Diane said Pumpkin-toast paint and Fawn Brown carpet will make the audio sound soooooo much better. She said the Dust Bunnies showed up because it sounded soooo good. Ya, Right!

Jim,

One of the side benefits of free jazz is that even dust bunnies don't like free jazz. (After all, they are cute little bunnies.) For video proposes I recommend you pick up "Masada Live At Tonic 1999", "Miles Electric - A Different Kind of Blue", "Sun Ra - Space Is The Place" and for those really hard to get at ones "Iannis Xenakis - Psappha, etc."

Playing any of the above videos at high volume for extended periods will clear all dust bunnies from your equipment, however, I cannot assume responsibility for any damage inflicted upon you, your family, your relationships, etc.

Just trying to do my part to help.

If you would like to gain a better appreciation for dust bunnies and their relationship to your audio system, I would direct your attention here - http://www.dustbunnies.com/dust_bunny_facts.htm
See the paragraph titled "Dustbunny Social Life".

Believe it or not DISCO is still their favorite music. If you find any dancing on the head of you needle, please remove gently and place off to the side so they can catch their breath.

The above quote is from the dust bunnies facts web site and appears to be just as I suspected, even dust bunnies shun my beloved free jazz. So go ahead Jim and put John Zorn and company to work keeping your home theater free of unwelcome guests (and maybe any guests )

On the other hand, at also appears that dust bunnies have the bad taste to like disco but then again they appreciate fine analog sound. Quite interesting creatures, these little balls of dust.
