Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons/TwoFeetThick):
Big, big show with Neil Young heard soundchecking with the band. Toward the start of the show, Ed quote some statistics:
“Four percent of the whole US population is in Ohio. You account for 25% of the jobs that have been lost in the last four years. That’s staggering. And this is a swing state?” At the end of the acoustic set, Ed says something about a friend “… who came a long way, I thought to see us, but really I think he came out to see you” and Neil and Pegi Young take the stage. ‘Harvest Moon’ ends the acoustic set and is just Ed and Pegi on vocals with Neil playing acoustic guitar. The encore songs include Neil (obviously) and the final three songs also include Neil’s wife Pegi, plus Peter Frampton For ‘Act of Love,’ Ed and Pegi stand to one side providing vocals, with Neil fronting. Neil tells the crowd to get friends registered to vote and “… maybe we can turn this whole thing around.”


Sorry for the Low Bit Rates

My wife and I bought a house. It was a foreclosure which means we got a good deal on it, but that it also needs a little work. We’re in the middle of getting it ready and also packing.

My father, mother, brother and I run a small business. I do the accounting and most of the office management. Right now my office is inside my parent’s house. But when we get settled into the new house I’ll be moving the office there.

My wife and I share a home computer. When I move the office into our house I’m going to start using the work computer for personal use as well. I’ve been slowly moving my MP3 collection to the new computer (my FLAC bootlegs are on external drives). I’ve also been downloading new boots to the new computer. Lately, when work is slow, I’ve been uploading some of those shows to the site. This is why you’ve seen so many more Bob boots of late.

Alas I just realized that when I installed the software to convert FLAC to MP3 (xACT for the Mac – it works great) I forgot to set the bit rate to 320. It was set at a low 160 kps. That’s far too low for me, that’s far too low for you. Never fear my dear friends, I shall be fixing this error soon. It will probably take me a week or so to get it all sorted as I don’t always have free time at work. I’ll write another post letting you know when the posts are all fixed.

My apologies for the error.
