Today, I grabbed a Steam Roast Pork Bun on the run at Lunch Box Buffet. I was headed to the AES convention to check out the latest audio nerd gear. I was surprised how good the bun was. Very pillowy bread. I wonder if I got a fresh one. A lot of bread did stick to the bottom paper that I couldn’t get off. But really good bun here.

As far as the AES convention, some cool mics. I really liked the Cascade microphone booth. They list their prices! Why don’t the other booths do that? I don’t want to talk to anyone. Anyway, the Cascades had some cool old-school ribbon mics –looked sweet, sounded pretty good and cheap. I should’ve taken a photo.
I got to play the new Gibson Firebird X high-tech robot guitar. I couldn’t figure out how to turn it on. Had to wait until another guitar was free that was already turned on …and then I got on it and accidentally turned it off. I love the new technology and really wanted to love this guitar, but too many sliders, knobs and switches that didn’t tell me what they did. I did figure out how to tune it using the robot tuners. I was so proud of myself, I taught it to the guy next to me because he couldn’t figure it out either.
