Kuchar Madness

It's been sort of quiet in Posters land lately. We've been working on the record, and getting closer to done. Lots of trumpet recording, which is basically done (I think). I took a picture of our new microphone. It's a ribbon mic and I got it mostly for trumpet, though Dave claims, paradoxically, that it sounds less good than and indistinguishable from the SM57 we normally use. Anyway, I think I'm going to keep it because it's the first mic I've found that sounds good on the Stang Ray - the amp we use live. That amp sounds magical when you're in the room with it, but until now I've never found a mic that could capture its sound on record.

Anyway, I thought I'd post an update with something non-Posters-related but still important, which is that I found a blog the other day with a bunch of George Kuchar movies posted, including the elusive Pagan Rhapsody, which I'd been dying to see for a long time. This is a real find, as George Kuchar (unlike his brother Mike) doesn't want his film (that is, non-video) work released on DVD, so some of these movies are tough to see.

I'm glad to report that Pagan Rhapsody is every bit as good as I'd hoped. What an ending!
