Music & Poetry at Barry Mill

leave a comment »

Back to local history it seems! Next to Carnoustie is Barry and Barry has had a water powered mill for around 5 centuries. More info at wikipedia. Last year a local group managed to ‘Save Barry Mill‘ from closure. This was partly fund-raising but also getting people attending. A number of events were organised including a couple of music nights. Last year was great fun so Marta and I looked forward to a night of ‘music/poetry/comedy’. A different format and it worked well. Of course my Flip Camera came along too and below is a collection of highlights of the second half of the evening.

Media Management

leave a comment »

Just had a good chat room discussion re:iPods and media. It amazes me the efforts some go to manage large libraries with gigabytes to be indexed and backed up. It kinda takes the fun out of it when tagging every last detail of the MP3 tags and comparing bit rates. I don’t understand the need to carry ALL your music with you ALL the time either.

Then again I am a big Podcast listener and not very fanatical about music anymore so an 8gig device is more than enough. I have an immense amount of free shows to pick from so high throughput and a ‘listen and delete’ policy stops things piling up. Daily podcasts can mount up so have to be careful with how many of those you subscribe to! It solves those media management problems and is rather good fun. I’m off to download today’s crop of juicey episodes…
