Thanks to all that came to visit, Anton and I enjoyed your company. Wes and Stephen, we missed you. A special thanks to John DeVore for lending us a prototype pair of the "orangutans" to play with. I hope you didn't have to tip the bellman at the Venetian too much in order to get the speakers back to your room. I finally got the stereo up and playing at home this weekend. Now I have to pack away the damn boxes and alphabetize the vinyl!

Taras has over 10k-12k albums and not a single bit of alphabetization in sight.

Each and every time he does so, he ends up never playing anything.

Unorganized:
If you have an urge to play a specific record, then you have to search for the damn thing.

In doing so, you find a few dozen other records that you just have to play now.

Organized:
If they are all ordered up, then you never play anything, and many times never even go and find that record in the exact place you know it is.

If one has enough records, they can create the meandering path of musical serendipity within the use of the collection via...never organizing it. Leave the particle universe and go into the wave.

And thanks to you guys for (again) hosting the best room in Vegas. Honored to be a part of it this year, and dude, that Orangcello was crazy delicious. I saved some for a toast at the first year anniversary Monkeyhaus last week:

John, I'm surprised you had some left over! Better yet, getting it on the plane. That Orangcello had a high enough proof to blow up real good!

For safety's sake and packed it in one of the shipping palette's going back to the factory. I made sure to save a decent amount for a Monkeyhaus so Stephen and Michael could sample a bit of it.

Orangcello

Orangutans

Hmmm...

Yea, let's ask these guys why they think they heard differences.

That Orangcello is so strong that when you open the bottle, it drinks you.

And Orangutans are much stronger than they look.
