Learn Out Loud

Man, I’ve gotta get me an iPod. Learnoutloud has literally thousands (9000) podcasts on just about any topic you can imagine.

Speaking of cools podcasts, here’s one with Jim Rygiel, the special FX supervisor on the Lord of the Rings movies. Good stuff.

*UPDATE* Holy Cow! Lots of these podcasts are videocasts. I don’t know if you can get them onto a video iPod, but how cool would that be? Having dozens of 30 minute cool stories on your person for those downtimes.

Wow. I think in the future music majors will compose theme and variations on this tune as their senior thesis, and silent audiences in black tie will listen respectfully.

Takes a while to load (on a high speed connection), but it’s worth it.

I went back to Fine Lumber today and got one more piece of QS red oak for the top. It’s a very nice ray-flecked piece. I planed it down to 3/4, jointed the edges, and it’s gluing up right now. Big heavy thing.

So now I’ve almost got all of the pieces formed and I’m almost ready to sand (again- yuk). Once that’s done I’ll cut the final joinery and assemble.

Worked 3.5 hours today. Total of 19 hours.
