Memory maxed out, individual-out, and digital i/o options, EB16 “SampleVerb” option – looks like everything except the Flash ROM and multimode filter/EQ card onboard.

Thirty-five bucks on Craigslist.

Aw yeah.

“So. Um. Great. But… Uh…why did you buy a circa-1995 hardware sampler?”

Shut up! You don’t understand!

I can’t seem to speak the language. I remember how they used to stare at the ground…

First line of Craigslist ad:

“If this ad is still up, it’s still available.”

First response to Craigslist ad, mere minutes after posting:

“Hey, dude…

…so, like…


…Is this still available?”

Damn you, BBC Four. It doesn’t matter (two…?) that I got rid of cable and put the telly in storage, because you’re probably not showing this on BBC America anyway, and I won’t be in the UK at 9pm on October 16th. It’s because of that whole colonial war of independence thing, isn’t it? Can’t we talk?

Guess who just got back today?

Those wild-eyed boys that had been away
Havent changed, havent much to say
But man, I still think those cats are great…

So we’re back to being a Seattle band again, as opposed to a Seattle, Manhattan, Not-Really-Getting-Much-Done band.

Musing over where to shoehorn in another keyboard, whilst watching the tracking number on the Siel.

Also, five dollar Craigslist kick pedal. One of the late-70s / early-80s Camco ones, just like Neil Peart used to use. Not that I actually know how to play. Or have room to leave a kit set up anywhere just yet. Details, details.

Tried to convince myself I didn’t need a 1982 Italian divide-down oscillator string machine. Failed. Now it just needs to get to Seattle in one piece.
