I have been looking at getting a Turtle Beach's AudioTron (, but I've been hesitating because it would require a really nasty cable run from the second floor to the first floor bedroom. Maybe after summer's over and the attic cools down a little...

Nanci Griffith is my all-round favorite artist. I own all her non-compilation albums, and recently got to see her in person at the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, Texas (04/21/2002). It was part of her Clock Without Hands tour promoting her new album, but she did more of her older songs than new ones. Bass Hall was a nearly perfect place to hold the concert, and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra enhanced her songs, much as the London Symphony Orchestra did in her Dust Bowl Symphony album.


I was also able to snag a signed copy of her book, Other Voices: A Personal History of Folk Music, which I'd been searching for.
