Babylonian Beatles

Read a very interesting article by Curt Hopkins [] regarding archaeoacoustics (a/k/a acoustic archaeology), an emerging field of science which seeks to understand how sound influenced a given culture.  Even more fascinating is how we too can experience these sounds from the past.  For more, Acoustic Archaeology? Meet the Web

Hopkins leaves us with a “take-away” thought, “What does it all mean? … What sounds will our descendants find us to have valued?”

TV Cord-Cutters

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

There’s a trend out there – TV Cord-Cutting – and it is gaining momentum every week!  Are consumers reducing the amount of time they watch TV in favor of other media like gaming, social networks, or other Internet-based media?  And in this trend, are they cancelling their digital TV subscriptions altogether??  When a household bill to the cable company exceeds $150/month – something has to go.   (more…)

Talk Backwards

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

“Talk backwards to me” is a favorite expression around our household.  The jest of the expression meaning to tell me your purpose in speaking with me – then you may present whatever details you think necessary.  This allows me to properly “tune in” and listen to details that are helpful to me in understanding.  Even my recorded cell answering message ask callers to please NOT leave a message, but to call me at my office or send me a txt message.  Peer pressure ended that message, and even worse– this approach landed me in the “dog house” with my spouse on many occasions (but the kids caught on!).  (more…)

Good Sounding Bass

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

by Gerry Lemay, Director, Home Acoustics Alliance

One of the hardest things for me to describe in words alone is the sound of good bass. Oh yes, the terms deep, tight and fast always come up but that’s misses the mark for many non-audiophiles.  Let’s face it, for many folks bass is either loud and booming or minimized as much as possible.  But whether you are a bass lover or hater, both can enjoy the same calibrated bass settings thus leaving the debate to instead hinge on their choice of listening material and sound level.   (more…)

Lifetime's Army Wives

“Background, Camera, ACTION!” were words heard throughout the day in my self indulged day off as I joined our neighbors, Lifetime’s Army Wives, as a “background” extra on the set of an upcoming episode.  My stage name, “the professor”, because that was the part I was to play across from Harry Hamlin (my fellow law professor) in the courtyard of the law school.  Truly, this was one of those life experiences…  (more…)
