The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 1429

post #21421 of 21426

While traveling to and from the Carolina head-fi meetup yesterday, I listened to the History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps podcast.

 

It's really great. The "Without Any Gaps" part is taken seriously*: I'm seven-ish hours and twelve episodes in already and the series is still on the Presocratics. The show is up to its 172nd weekly episode and has only gotten as far as the Medieval Eastern traditions (Arabic and Jewish philosophers and mystics). (*With the host's clearly stated caveat that he's sticking within Western and Near Eastern lineages, since East Asian history is outside his realm of expertise and would make the podcast unwieldy.)

 

So far this series has been gripping. Maybe it will become less so when covering subjects that are less obscure and better-documented; so far a lot of the fun has been in, for example, what has been lost to history about Zeno's paradoxes (and how they may have been intended as rhetorical openers to defend Parmenides' Monism rather than hang in the air like a koan, which is how they tend to be received these days).

 

The host does an excellent job of bringing life to the life of the mind. So to speak. I'm not an avid podcast listener but I'll be keeping this one on my short list of regular listens.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate. I had fun dying eggs this weekend. 

 

 

 

Including some attempts at egg-sperimentation via damp fabric and an eye dropper.

Viola, tie dye eggs. Kinda.

 

 

Last weekend I spent some time with these earphones from Tralucent Audio.

Look closely, and you'll see they're something altogether new.

 

 

More information and impressions will follow shortly.

I have so many notes I need to format, but it will get done now that I finally have some spare time.

 

 

I'm back.

Great job! A few of the eggs have a celestial look about them. :normal_smile :

 

Great to see you back!

2+2, interesting. I wonder if that is the new name of their reference 1 IEM.

More like an old name. Gavin's prototype say "2 + 2" but he's calling them "Ref. 1" for production. 

 

He specifically wanted some feedback on how they sound so far and doesn't mind my sharing what I think with you, my faithful diary readers.

Cool, another person who's heard the Ref 1. Welcome back MF. I'm curious whether it's actually smaller than the OG 1p2. That thing was pretty unwieldy and on the hugelarge side of things. Isobaric dynamic sounds kinda cool even if I have no idea what that means
