I wish there was some way to get myself to not do that. It gets annoying. Why can't I just go by the hardware store tonight on the way home from work and pick up some primer and trim paint, then have the trim done before I go to bed tonight? Because I'm not going to feel like it, that's why.

I actually had a productive weekend. Got the wires glued down on the Magnepans, so they do function properly now. Ordered capacitors for the crossovers, and bought fabric - the wife is making me new socks.

Me too! Last Wednesday after work I went by the hardware store and got paint supplies, then went home, moved everything in the studio and got the trim started. I gave it a second coat this weekend and took out all the anchors in the wall and puddied them. I've got dinner plans tonight, but I'm planning on sanding, priming, and taping tomorrow night so I can paint the walls either Thursday or Friday. That'll at least get the painting stuff done so I can move on to building frames for acoustic absorbers.

I never thought of Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" as an audiophile recording. But the percussion at the beginning was some of the most "live"-sounding stuff I've ever heard. I mean, it really sounded like they were right here in the room.

Painting is just about finished. I need to do a little bit of touch up tonight and then I'm ready to get the studio back in order. Next part is building acoustic absorbers!
