                        Writing Quote Writing is more than a vehicle for communicating ideas. It's a tool for crystallizing ideas. Writing exposes gaps in your knowledge and logic. It pushes you to articulate assumptions and consider counterarguments. One of the best paths to sharper thinking is frequent writing.

                                  Testing ‘Rubber Soul’ pressings like . . . Vinyl disc manufacturing was (and still is) a non-exact science. The physics of the medium demand close inspection and random statistical sampling at all stages of production. In the end however, it is well worth it. The Beatles recorded their sixth album, Rubber Soul which took the group in a new direction. Rubber Soul was recorded 56 years ago.

                                    Heavy duty guitar stand, will not tip and hugs guitar, made with 3/4 PVC: 6 "T's", 6 "elbows", 8 "end caps", maybe 4 "no-slip-grips", and some pipe foam. Black Krylon "Fusion" spray paint (or just use black PVC pipe (which, IMHO, is not as easy to work with...) and PVC cement.

                                                Checkout Peter Max design on this Norwegian Cruise ship. Peter Max personally invited me to two of his exhibitions. I have one of his works autographed. I was trying to create an initiative with both Peter Max, Hartmut Esslinger (Founder of FrogDesign) and me. The two mammoth egos couldn’t work together
