Heaven And Hell or Dali And Disney


 A very non audio post. 

Had a very short trip to Florida this weekend. Stacey had a business trip that I tagged along on. Someone had to protect her.

Heaven
Visiting the Salvador Dali Museum in St.petersburg Florida. I have been a fan of surrealist since I was 12. 
I don't do selfies but when I do they are with one of the greatest works of art ever painted... IMO.
Visiting the museum was as close to a religious experience as I get. Listening to the WE16a for the first time was pretty close but this was on another level. To top off the experience there was an MC Escher exhibit with at least 100 original pieces. Just stunning.

To come down from this experience we found Maximo's seafood shack for drinks and incredible seafood.

Colossal Stone Crab!!!!!
That was heaven.


For those that know me They know I don't like crowds, resorts, chain restaurants or mass produced products. Stacey's conference is located in Disney World at Epcot. 
I have been out of my element all day. This is totally foreign and scary to me. Perhaps as scary as CES would be.

That is right about where I had a melt down. Fortunately I found a Yuengling and ran for the room. Nothing adult opens until 5pm. Help!

Interesting weekend heaven and hell with Dali and Disney.

If the format is gnarly this was posted from the blogger phone app and I'll fix it later.

Pioneer Exclusive CS-H9 1977

I find it interesting the products released labeled Pioneer Exclusive in Japan. The Pioneer CS-H9 is an interesting two way 40hz to 18khz 100db 1w1m. Very well made with thick cabinets.

Marc Bolan & T Rex - Children Of The Revolution Featuring Elton And Ringo

I'm a TRex fan for sure and this one is pretty good. It features Elton and Ringo but why stop there they should have tossed in a Lennon Henrix and Jagger.

Kenyon KEN-O-Drive T-263 Any Plates To Any Grids

Here is an interesting Kenyon transformer the T263 KEN-O-DRIVE. I can see how having a few of these could be useful.  It was in the original box with documentation and a sample of kester solder.
This is from my friend Chris Hornbeck's collection.    
If anyone needs a better scan of this T263 T264 let me know.

 The Kester solder sample is cool.
